“A Starlit Night, A Romantic Interlude, an Excellent Meal”

Bella blu alle cave di maiano
Ranked #12 of 18 things to do in Fiesole
Attraction details
Reviewed 23 November 2016

I am surprised by the low rating for this restaurant. We went on the recommendation of a very highly respected culinary friend. We made a reservation. We dressed for dinner. It was for a evening meal, specifically for the famous Bistecca alla Fiorentina (not for ice cream for the kids). A taxi ride into the hills outside Florence made for a romantic start to a perfect dining experience. The staff was cordial, gracious and attentive. The massive, perfectly grilled, aromatically- perfumed specialty of the region was so good - the garlic rubbed into bone before grilling, the use of salt and excellent olive oil to finish the steak, the presentation were all excellent. Accompanied by superb Tuscan wines, it made for a flawless experience. Yes, we had delicious appetizers and tasty side dishes, all subordinate to the steak. If you are a meat-and-potatoes person, forget the spuds and take your significant other by taxi, on a starlight night, above Florence for a true taste of Tuscany.

I have been there for a birthday.
We where almost twenty people and it was Friday. We were set outdoor in s very nice position.
Food was good and very much: fresh salami and ham , cheeses, vegetables. Three main courses based on pasta and rise. Finally, ice cream very nice served. The water melon ice cream was served along the fruit: very good and very nice to see.
The served wine, white and red, was very good.
I don't know the price cause the dinner was offered by the guy who invited us for his birthday.

High prices of course are including short breathing view of Maiano caves. But they don't, for sure, excess of table on the terrace, poor green plastic, and waiters not really friendly. Next time will choose a different place to get a good ice cream experience to my children.
