When the weather finally gets better…. That’s when I get the most nostalgic about my home in Fiesole. Therefore I celebrate in order to achieve closure!

There is a very specific moment on our land, when you can feel under your skin that spring is turning into summer. It is not a matter of temperature, or even color for that matter; it’s the light. Something that impossible to perceive if you live in the city, or too close to any paved road that is serviced by even rudimental illumination. One day it just happens, and you rejoice: the “Lucciole” have arrived!

Fireflies in the fields of Fiesole are absolutely gorgeous and as a child I have spent hours chasing their trail in the darkest of nights, watching them disappear and trying to predict their blind flight… until that moment in which they blinked again.

So yeah, my mom told me over the phone that the fireflies have arrived at home: her and my dad have started having dinners under the porch, the cats are disappearing every night, the boars have increased tenfold as usual…. and a bunch of other farm life related news. And I got super sad!

So here we are. We have planned a fantastic menu for only 5 dinners in the month of June… cause I will be drinking, and I need company!

As always, given the nature of our events and the small size of our room, tickets are transferrable but not refundable. Please double check your calendar before pulling the trigger!

Our shop is not a restaurant but rather a communal dining room. We do not fire our orders based on your arrival time, we do not use heating lamps and we get sad when our food gets cold because a guest is late. Pretend you are coming to dinner at grandma… mine used to smack me if I was late for Sunday supper. We won’t get physical, we will just start without you around 7.15.

We will offer a selection of Prosecco, Red and White wine, Beer and Digestif by the glass or by the bottle.

If you have been saving a bottle of Brunelli for a special occasion feel free to bring it, we charge a $15 corking fee with a maximum of 1 bottle for every two people.

Taxes and Fees are included in this purchase.

Alcohol and Gratuity are not included.
