My husband and I had a delicious meal--authentic Tuscan specialities--and excellent service. When the weather is good, you can dine on the roof top terrazzo--with Florence in all her glory spread out in the valley at your feet. A memorable experience.

Beautiful views overlooking Florence! Good pizza, a great place for lunch while visiting Fiesole! The service was friendly and they have outdoor seating.

I see that this restaurant generally gets quite negative reviews, but my wife and I had a good meal in a pleasant setting. We shared a starter of cheese, ham and salami and a pizza. The food was good and the evening we were there the restaurant had a nice informal family feel to it. The service was pretty slow... More

We took a trip to Fiesole and whilst there we decided to have lunch. We spotted this restaurant and thought looks lovely so we went in. The grounds are stunning without doubt, which was a very good start. As my wife and I had already had a large breakfast we opted for a starter each and some sides, my wife... More

Stopped off for a final lunch on a visit to Fiesole and sat on the terrace with spledid views over Florence below. Food and wine were great but unfortunately the two waiters were overstretched which is the only reason my rating is "average" rather than "very good". I had the veal dish which was some of the tastiest meat I've... More

We booked this restaurant for a family meal on a Thursday evening mid-July, as my husband and I had had coffee at its sister cafe (CafeBlu at ground level) in the afternoon and enjoyed the atmosphere and the view there. Well, what a complete disappointment this restaurant was! From the moment we came in, the waiter was not welcoming and... More

The view over Firenze is stunning but there are better places to see it, so don't bother even for that. That's if you see the town past the bins and scruffy parking area below. When we called to book a table the waiter was very disinterested and we almost walked away and wish we had. On the evening we arrived... More

This cafe has one thing going for it; the view. The open terrace, which is high in the Florentine hillside, commands a beautiful view of the city of Florence, in the centre of the view lies the Brunelleschi dome of the Duomo. Coffee was good but in Italy it is rare, away from the autostrada, to find poor coffee. The... More

Took the bus up to Fiesole from Florence and found the Aurora across the square and down some steps. Has an outside terrace which has pretty views if you are next to the wall. Seemed to be mainly local people in there for lunch. Pasta was ok, tuna which tasted more like ham and the pasta seemed undercooked to me... More

If I'd have read the reviews in advance I'd never have come, but we had great food, decent service and an amazing view. A slightly larger party close to us seemed to have some service issues but that can happen when a big group turn up. Perhaps we got lucky.
