Brilliant wine and friendly staff. Go beyond the little cafe area to the seats in the back. Order a bottle of wine and some cheese and bread....and then go back out to hit the streets of Florence.

After a very hot morning sightseeing in Florence & walking the halls of the Uffizi we were in need of a nice lunch before hitting the Accademia Gallery & more sightseeing. Our guide recommended this place & the gelato shop across the street to recharge our batteries & it was perfect. The front is a busy pastisserie but there is... More

For breakfast, a wide variety of pastries and great coffee. For lunch, pizza and focaccia by a slice, sandwiches, freshly squeezed juice. There are only few tables, so you might need to grab a seat on the bench and watch the locals...

We are regular visitors to Verrazzano for our morning coffee and for lunch. Everything they do, they do well. The staff is friendly and efficient. We consider their espresso and cappuccino to be the best in Florence - and that is saying a lot!

It's quite small place with friendly atmosphere. It's great for a glass of wine before dinner! They have amazing snacks menu, everything very tasty and wine is great. Although the place quite small they have service like in a 5 star restaurant. If I visit Florence again, defenetely I will come back!

This place offers great food at a good prize. They have their own Chianti wine and it is so good. You can drink it by the glass. They have two locations. The downtown one is usually full of people but it worths the wait to be seated and enjoy lunch. I will visit the location close to Ponte Vecchio for... More

We visited the Duomo, then walked around this area searching for a place to eat. We stumbled across this restaurant, and saw that they had both table service and easy takeout. Menu was in Italian only, but our waitress helped us decipher it and showed us some ideal vegetarian options. Great food choice and great location.

The focaccia plate was wonderful as was the wine. There are just four to five tables tucked behind the bakery but the atmosphere is great. There are a few more tables outdoors as well. We waited about 20 minutes and it was worth it. The service was friendly and polite. I also noticed customers getting lunch items to go if... More

Staying in Duomo

Neighborhood Profile
Duomo
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
