We had a delicious meal accompanied by a good local wine recommended by the owner. The view of Florence was magnificent from the garden which was picturesque. Excellent value for money. If ever in Florence, would make an effort to return here.

A little off the beaten path but definitely worth the trek to Fiesole. Excellent food and friendly service. And you can't' beat the scenery of the Tuscan hillside and the city of Florence below.

Hello, Could you tell me the number I need to call to make a reservation? I tried the one that is listed online, but I got a message saying to call another number. Unfortunately, my Italian is not good enough to understand the new number. Otherwise, could I send you en email to make a reservation? Thanks so much! Jennifer
