“Only For Tuscan Food Lovers”
Reviewed 22 July 2012

For 24 years we have eaten on the terraza at Dino for lunches and family/friend dinners. You won't see many tourists here as it is in Olmo, but it is always worth the drive to get out of the heat below. From the terrazza the view back down of Fiesole and the valley is fantastic.

The food at Dino is tyopical Tuscan, and how good it is! Over the years, wait staff have retired, but the kitchen continues to be a favorite of Tuscans (and those of us who are partial to Tuscan food). It is not fancy, but sitting in the shade with a small breeze of the lime trees while enjoying a meal is what we love about Tuscany. If you are unable to eat at someone's home, this is the closest thing to it. As you may know, Tuscans generally order what they make at home
and then compare it to how they would make it. The kitchen at Dino always makes it right!

Closed Wednesays, but open all other days of the week for lunch and dinner. If you have a party of more than 6, it is a good idea to resrve a table, especially at night during the hot weather.
