We took the number seven bus out of Florance to a small hill town of Fiesole. A 30 min trip.
We found the Ristorante Aurora just as we stepped off the bus.
The view from the terrace was ok but blocked by a lot of trees.
Very nice place to relax and unwind from a busy time in Florance.
We only had the Cheese cake and coffee. Both very good but for 25€.
If you want a great view of Florance, go early because the sun sets in front of you making pictures and the view not the best.

Admittedly, we did just go for the view, and it wasn't cheap, but it was really good food. I had an amazing cod ravioli that has entered my memorable meals list, what a combination and perfectly balanced. Well matched with a fresh Pinot grigio and a good espresso; we nearly just stayed right through until dinner and did it all again.

The food and service at this place was great! If you look at the facade and chairs it doesn't look like much, but it is more than worth the visit.

When we were in Florence last week the weather was delightful - sunny and mid to high 70's.
To escape the crowds and enjoy such great weather outdoors we hopped on the Number 7 bus from the Piazza San Marco and took the short and scenic ride up the hills to Fiesole.
After strolling around and visiting the Franciscan monastery we quite literally stumbled upon the Aurora while back in the main square.
The outdoor terrace garden setting was a serene place to enjoy what proved to be an excellent lunch. Given that it was a Friday and during Lent the prix-fixe "Menu fo the Day"
was all Fish - nicely prepared and when paired with a bright Tuscan white wine made for a lovely dining experience.
