“A favorite in Fiesole”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2014

We always go up to Fiesole,when we visit Florence, and we always stop to eat in Perseus. The service is quick and friendly,you are never rushed. The food is great,we try to mix it up and try different dishes.You should go inside to look around at the beautiful trays and dishes of food. Their pasta is so good,we always try something new. We had a vegetarian pizza that was also so good.We love the location, just in the Piazza Mino. There is some interesting art in the bathroom upstairs.Remember this is Florence.

“Best Bistecca Fiorentina in Florence”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014

This is the only place where I eat bistecca fiorentina. It's always tender and perfectly cooked (or uncooked, since it must be rare). The service is always great and the atmosphere is so Italian with hanging garlic and dried peppers. There is a large back patio and a smaller section out front. The inside is cozy and even two floors, so non assuming, making the restaurant feel small and warm. The menu is large, but I recommend sticking to the bistecca and 1-2 veggie sides.

Romantic for couples, but fun for friends! I take all my out of town friends here!

“Are all the restaurants in Fiesole great? I think so!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

Wonderful choice of fish and food in general all served with kilos of waiter personality. Do go inside to see the wonderful array of fish and antipasta and also to see just how large this place is. A delightful experience with a crowd of friends.

“Ok food but S.L.O.W service.....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013 via mobile

It's a shame really as this place could be good. The food was ok - we had bruschetta which was pretty average followed by a pretty good pizza. The problem was the service. We waited some time before our order was taken, and the wine about 10 minutes after that. Other tables received a bread basket while they were waiting but our waiter seemed to forget about us and it never materialised. From the time of asking for the bill to the time we left took another 50minutes!! I'm not convinced that this was just an off day given I could see the waiters station from where we were sitting and the waiter was smoking a cigarette!! Pretty poor really.
