“Best dining experience in Florence”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Our two week visit to Italy ended in Florence and we had hear nothing but good things about the food and service at Cave di Maiano. We were traveling with four other couples and we have heard nothing but rave reviews on the food and vista offered by this restaurant, we were not disappointed. We were met at the door by the owner and chef, a very personable and affable. A well provisioned wine list added to the enjoyment of the evening. We all enjoyed a variety of our favorite pasta dishes which did not disappoint. As for my self the sirloin for two was out of this world. This is a can't miss location that you must try if you are in the Florence area. It is located about 20 minutes outside the historic district in Florence but well worth the drive. Caio

“An Undiscovered Gem”
Reviewed 13 April 2014

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.

“Best meal in Florence.”
Reviewed 16 November 2013

This restaurant is some 150 yrs old and the traditions and building show it. The atmosphere is extremely welcoming. The staff are very friendly and know everything there is to know about the food and selection of wine. Typical food from the Toscana region, COME HERE!

First we had an appetizer of sliced meat; prosciutto, salami, fresh baked small rolls and chicken liver pureed on top of crostini.

The main course was a 1.5 kg T-bone steak cooked to perfection, enough for 2 people. Presented on a platter, pre-sliced for easy serving. Served with the most delicious roasted potatoes I've had. They recommended the red wine to accompany the meal as they would know what would fit best with the type of meat and pairings.

A few km away from the center of Florence but a must if you are visiting the city. Secluded to make you feel in a a real Italian countryside restaurant but just a stones throw from the city.

“luscious do not miss”
Reviewed 19 October 2013

Nothing to dislike here. They make thheir own pasta too. The place is up in the hills above Firenze. You eat like you did in the 1960s. The food is exquisite and not expensive. We spent 50 euros a piece for a very fulfilling meal, including an excellent wine nad lovely desserts. Not to be missed if you are up in Fiesole.
