Took the bus to Fiesole to get the view back on Florence and just happened into this restaurant for a light lunch. Very good. I had an eggplant parmesan and wife had a risoto. Both were very flavorful. Bread served with meal was fresh and not dry. The only complaint I had was the house red was a bit thin.... More

Every year I visit Italy, never have I been so disappointed by the quality (and service) of an Italian restaurant. Wine was good, but the food: we ordered crostini con tonno, good combination and you can't almost do it wrong. We received cat food!, straight from a jar, horrible!! We had to pay 25 euro's for this mess, included 4... More

All your caffeine needs and in addition those biscotti and other treats which go so well with your cappuccino.

On a warm sunny morning in august we took the local number 7 bus up the hill to pretty little town of Fiesole, with its neat square and Cathedral. We decided to opt out for the tourist restaurants with a view of Florence and settled on the Café' al N5 restaurant under the lime trees at the other side of... More

Good location, good atmosphere. Have morning cappuccino and a pastry, or eat lunch or dinner here. Good food. The waiters and waitresses are friendly and speak pretty good English.

Service and food was great, especially the Lasagna. The patio was just as nice as eating inside. We will be going there the next time.

We accidentally stopped at Caffe no5 on a rainy evening in October. The restaurant has a lovely covered terrace with intimate little tables.. We served a tasty quatro formaggi pizza and a delicious tiramisu with crunchy pieces of chocolate on it.. Also a good Chianti Classico..

After enjoying the lovely view of Fiesole, we decided to have a bite to eat, we checked few eateries close to the piazza and settled for Bistrot caffe. The waiter was very strange. Stepped on my wife's toe without any excuse neither apology. Seems to be miles away. We ordered one lasagne, this was a very small portion quickly reheated... More

sorry for the waiter who already no longer works for our bistro. the portion of lasagna we serve are 3.50 hg, so it is not a meager portion ... probably being served so bad it was embarrassing. We apologize again. More

We have stopped in here on each of 3 trips to Florence since 2011. Two out of three times we sat outside and enjoyed our wine and bruschetta. Last year during our November visit, we had a table inside. Very cozy with the cane della casa under our table (see photo)! A very warm, cozy and inviting place. Ample seating... More
