I have lived in Florence my entire life, and I am not easily impressed by "fiorentina" steak and tuscan food. Neverthless, the steak we had in this restaurant was sublime. The meat was so tender it seemed like melting in our mouth. The "Caponata" (mixed vegetables in a traditional tomato sauce) was the perfect side to it and enhanced its... More

We were married at the Palazzo Vecchio in May 2005 and are Australians. We stayed at the nearby Fattoria Di Maiano for 8 nights with a group of our friends (16)who all flew in from all over the world for our wedding. Every night we would walk up to the Cave di Maiano for dinner and introduce our latest arrivals.... More

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... More

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.

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... More

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... More

The Cave di Maiano is the place in Florence to go for a special meal. Florentines go there for their special occasions. The cab-drive adds to the sense of occasion and expectation. It really is in the countryside - but only a short distance from Florence. This is a restaurant for all seasons. I have been here for lunch in... More

This was the best meal we had during our stay in the Florence area by far! It is on a hillside in Fiesole with an Italian only menu but the staff was fantastic recommending dishes. We had the prosciutto with fried dough, gnocchi with sausage and truffles, balsamic glazed filet and the zuccotta, all were amazing. With all that and... More
