Description: Since its outer Vinandro makes you understand what it means to be every day of the year , a true bastion of traditional Tuscan and Florentine , the real one , starting by the sign retro Vinandro Wine and Desco Springs , and the affable smile Alexander , owned and operated for over 10 years offers the best of authentic and original cuisine of Pubs and Taverns Florence of the past , as an Innkeeper of the old Florence that the door of the shop you would invite to sit reciting vernacular : "Revenue gentlemen , here we serve people who went , dinners and snacks with wine in decline , and is eaten by the King , generous portions at reasonable prices ! " Environments in warm colors , the marble counter , a carpenter's level and barrels turned into tables will remind the taverns of the past , projected lights historic lamps but an hour of dinner will give way to the lighted candles on each table . Enter smoothly into the rhythm of another era , where , after hanging jackets and coats all'attaccapanni , chances are you are to divide the wooden table with other people and socialize freely with them as you did before , because spaces I'm small , and if you are a group we always advise to book . In the event of a first date or marriage proposals if you want the appropriate confidentiality , no problem, reported at the time of booking the need for a " precious " table for two in the room . Vinandro Slow Food is a point , then know that any food on your plate will be fresh and genuine , typically produced in our land because we aim to safeguard and promote the local culture of Florence and Tuscany in general. Vinandro , although not in the way a wine tight , it has an excellent selection of wines from the house wine , served in pouring from a small barrel resting on the counter , to the famous Brunello di Montalcino , through craft beer . E ' strictly forbidden to take sugary carbonated drinks , cola or similar , because' you risk to annoy the landlord . Vinandro is open for lunch and dinner , and for some good snacks , every day of the year , from noon to midnight and during the warmer months you can make use of the outdoor tables on the most beautiful square in Fiesole , Piazza Mino , 33 .

We had dinner at this place 2 times in May - a very good experience. Extremely helpful, welcoming, staff very efficient in a nice informal atmosphere. We had a very small table but this added to the charm. Everything we had was excellent, in particular the artichoke risotto and the gnocchi with tomato sauce. Just avoid the red carafe wine and take anything else to drink (they had a good choice of very fine, extremely reasonably priced bottles). A very charming place, very genuine, good homemade food made with good skills. Excellent value.

This restaurant was recommended to us by the place we stayed. It did not disappoint.

This was the first place my husband was able to order fresh anchovies as an appetizer. All the fish lovers were ecstatic!

Their dinner menu is fairly varied, typical Italian order (antipasti, primi, secondi, contorni, etc) but they had a dish that was to die for - it was gnocci with a pesto sauce of pistachio and .basil. It was out of this world!

Service was quick and the server was personable. Like most places in Italy in small towns, the size of the dining room is smaller - you may want to check when the busiest time is to avoid it..
