This was an excellent lunch bar. Lots of variety of authentic Italian sandwiches and wine to go with that will keep you going back.

We came across this restaurant walking around in Florence. What a dinning experience when you first enter there is a long case of pastries along with other wonderful dishes. We were seated in this beautiful room with nice marble topped tables. We ordered glasses of wine, it was served with such elegance and attention. The presentation of our lunches was... More

We try to visit the Cantinetta for a light lunch at least a couple of times a year because it serves the highest quality Tuscan food in a wonderful setting. Their attention to detail is tremendous - e,g. glasses are individually chilled before serving white wine. All dishes are freshly prepared. Our favourite is the pecorino with orange served on...

Not a restaurant as such. More a bakery/coffee shop with extras. A great choice of bread and pastries both sweet and savoury, excellent coffee, friendly and helpful staff, lovely style with limited seating, amazing value. We went just for coffee and cake mid morning, for breakfast before our flight home and for the board of meats and cheeses plus took... More

Here's what you need to know: 1. The pizza is way above average 2. The desserts are phenomenal 3. There's free wifi 4. The prices are very reasonable --$3 per pizza slice --$4 per slice of dessert --$1.5 per cappacino The raspberry torta was, hands down, the best dessert either my wife or I had ever had. We went back... More

Not easy to find a place right nearby Piazza Della Signoria which would not be so touristic. I ve been here before, while living in Tuscany many years ago. It's a nice little place which is half bakery and half cafe'. Bruschetta, cheese platter, delicious Tuscan cold cuts platters, yummy desserts and of course their Chianti wine.

The food is delicious and décor is very intimate. Loved the waitress who asked us our likes and created a platter. One of the best meals in all of Italy.

Staying in Duomo

Neighborhood Profile
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.
