I love this place

I went there last night with my friend and the for 8 euro you get a really nice buffet, food was really tasty and they kept coming out with more and more food. I liked the touch of raspberry on top of my wine. Will be going back there ever soon with more friends :-)

You have to go. No questions asked. We stumbled upon this place to get a quick drink before going to another bar and stayed for around 2 hours. The bar tenders were incredible and made drinks that resemble the works of art in Santa Croce across the street. And the food... My goodness the biggest, most delectable spread I have... More

Just off Piazza Santa Croce this bar provided us with a comfy place to sit and chat (we were upstairs, away from the slightly louder music downstairs), excellent aperitifs and an array of freshly cooked "apericena" classics, including a delicious risotto, cold meats, pasta, quiche and tzatziki. The music was a judicious mix - mainly ambient, jazz, fusion and sublime... More

A very beautiful cocktail bar in one of the best spot in Florence, just in front of the beautiful Santa Croce Square with a terrific Aperitivo (the food is all freshly made and healthy but you can find also jummy stuff wich I skipped to reduce calories during Xmas time!). The best thing are the cocktails, barmans really know what... More

Love this bar and restaurant. They have a great buffet deal for students traveling abroad on a budget and you get a free cocktail with the buffet dinner for a total 10 euros! Great atmosphere, modern and fun music. Dinner was also great!

I was in Florence for a week and decided to go for an aperitivo in town. Walking down from the Arno river along via de Benci I stopped at Oibò because i heard they have a yummy buffet and aperitivo drinks. Well my expectations were not disappointed: the buffet food is really tasty and the drinks are made by highly... More

Just that, okay service okay quality. Bit pricy comparing to more restaurant like venues. What bothered me is that every tourist from the plaza Croche uses the bathroom so there is a continuous stream of people passing you while eating a sandwich.
