We'd just walked down from Piazzale Michelangelo and desperately needed a break. The staff seated us quickly at a sidewalk table and brought drinks. Once revived, we stayed for salads. Food was good, service superb, and location very good. This is just across the Piazza Santa Croce. So we left refreshed and ready to continue our explorations.

What a little gem. We visited here of an evening and for the 'vast' sum of €27 had cocktails for 4 and a very nice buffet that was delicious. The lads serving were fun and entertaining and kept checking on the kids to make sure they had everything they needed. Well worth a visit

We had breakfast in this place for three days. They really have good latte and hot chocolate. The setting is ok and the service is fine. Nothing really special to brag about. It's nice for a quick regular breakfast.

We went to the school next door to learn Italian and always went here for a coffee and pastry on our break! Isabella tried cappuccinos here for the first time....and despite the bradley cooper lookalike barista, the other guy made much better cappuccinos!

They offer seating outside which is nice and shady but they tend to want to cater to what they think tourists want - and not necessarily authentic Italian food. We had a nice lunch but nothing that we would overly recommend.

Made a nice custom breakfast for us, scrambled eggs, omelette - prices very reasonable. Also had lunch here earlier - good food. Great view of Santa Croce church.

We stopped here for a couple of pre dinner cocktails on our last evening. Nice atmosphere and good service. Very good cocktails although slightly expensive but perhaps this is offset for some by the buffet if you buy drinks. Only downside was the lack of a working toilet which I thought seemed odd for a bar but I was told... More

Be aware that if you sit outside the price of a coke increases from three to five euros even though the menu we looked at outside said three euros. Rip off!

A few years ago when I studied abroad in Florence, my friends and I would visit Oibo for the apertivo two, sometimes three times a week. I rarely went elsewhere because Oibo’s apertivo is just so, so good. Their spread is always filled with a variety of delicious, high quality dishes that rotate throughout the night. The interior is modern... More

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Croce
Stop and stare at the beauty and symmetry of the Basilica of Santa Croce any time day or night. Unraveling around it are a number of architectural and artistic masterpieces, from the Synagogue to the Central National Library. As a hub for young people, the area gets busy with people who want to have fun: a continuous flow of tourists and locals become animated by songs and dances.
