A glorious selection of Deruta ware on a quiet street in the heart of Florence

This is our favorite ceramics shop in Florence. The collection of Deruta ware is first-rate, with patterns that are, in our opinion, unmatched by any other shops in town. Perhaps... read more

This is our favorite ceramics shop in Florence. The collection of Deruta ware is first-rate, with patterns that are, in our opinion, unmatched by any other shops in town. Perhaps you might find better in Deruta itself, but as far as Florence is concerned, this shop is perfect.

So lucky we walked by this shop! We stopped in while owner was closing and quickly bought a couple of pieces, will stop in today for more. Extensive selection of Tuscany pottery, best prices I've found so far. Located off of Via Cavour, between Duomo and Accademia Gallery. A real find! www.labotteghina.it Via Guelfa, 5r

If you want to purchase authentic Tuscan ceramics, and the town of Deruta isn’t on the itinerary for your trip, Botteghina is the next best thing. Lovely small shop with attentive owner, great variety in handpainted ceramics – some one of a kind – shipping isn’t cheap but is easy.

I first visited this store in 2011 and was just astonished at all the beautiful pieces in this little unassuming store on Via Guelfa. When we decided to return to Firenze this fall with some of our extended family, I made sure a visit to La Botteghina del Ceramista was on the itinerary. As it turned out, I went there... More

I went searching for this little shop after reading several favorable reviews. It was a great find and highlight of my trip. So many treasures - beautiful ceramics at a wide range of prices for every budget. I was so busy picking out gifts that I wish I had selected more for myself - a good reason to return. Mrs.... More

My husband and I walked by La Botteghina in Florence for two days before we went inside. I fell in love with the work of one particular artist, Silvana Argenti, and we bought as many pieces as we could reasonably carry for the remainder of our trip. Mrs. Daniela packed everything very well, and we went on our way. When... More

I go here every time in Florence. A small store, centrally located, very a very good selection of Deruta and other locally produced ceramics. Bit by bit I'm developing my collection.

On a trip through Florence I picked up five serving pieces to compliment my everyday dishes. I get so many complements every time I use them!!! The staff was very helpful even with the language barrier.
