best cheesecake i've ever tasted! you could even choose a topping to go with it: nutella, jam or creame. while i chose the nutella, i think even without it, their cheesecake was simply divine! it was super soft and creamy; you could really taste the cheese; not like other cheesecakes that's mixed with gelatin, making it too firm. volume's cheesecake...

Kind of cool & small dark jazz bar over the river. Good wine good prices, great music & atmosphere, seemed to be very much a locals bar. Free snacks early evening too.

We were eating at an excelent restaurant beside it, the borgo antico and we saw amazing people getting into the volume: diferent kinds of bears, hairstyles, clothes... After lunch we decide to go there and it was a fabulous place with styling and surpresinling very nice people!

The atmosphere was fantastic and we were having a great saturday night and while walking from the bathroom i was explaining to my friend how the italian language was stupid with all its verbs. This waiter (obviously misunderstanding my english) started to verbally abuse me and I have never been treated so horribly in my life. I will never go... More

This was such a cool bar. Do they have hipsters in Italy? This is where they'd hang out. It was quite busy on a Tuesday night, with a very mixed crowd of trendy young and middle aged/older folks listening to some young guys play guitar and sing pop songs in Italian. It was completely delightful. Lots of random chairs and... More

Loved the atmosphere and drinks. Nice selection of olives, chips, etc. for free. Our waiter was just not nice. Did not make us feel welcome. So, I can't give it a great rating. We are Americans over 50 so we are not their target patron, but still - our money is good and we are very fun loving!

Volume was recommended to us by our Florentine host, who said this was often frequented by the locals of Florence. We decided to check it out and it is a wonderful little place in a large piazza with a lot of alfresco dining. They offer small plates and sweet or savory crepes, as well as cocktails, wine, and coffee. Essentially... More

I liked it here - buzzy atmosphere and cool decor. We had no problem with the staff, we got a round ordered quite easily from the waiter and the drinks came quickly. A glass of wine was 5euro and that included a small platter of olives, dips, crisps and a little bread... we also sneaked a few morsels from the... More

Ah, to be young and hip! Great for watching the local "cool kids" and realizing that youthful expressions of "individuality" are remarkably similar the world over. Never made to feel out of place even though we were clearly not in the target demographic.
