Neighborhood: Fiesole / Settignano
Cuisine: Italian

On warm summer evenings it is a pleasure dining al fresco under the Linden trees in the back garden of this old fashioned trattoria in the hills of Fiesole just outside Florence. Opened in 1897, the restaurant used to be a popular spot with the workers of the Maiano sandstone quarries (cave in Italian) that supplied the gray stone used to in many of the Renaissance Florentine buildings. The quarries are no longer in use but the restaurant remains a peaceful getaway. Regional cooking is highlighted with local fresh products and a great deal of attention to old, traditional recipes. Hot and cold crostini, "chicken under a brick" and grilled meat are delicious choices.
