Beautiful place outside in the Piazza della Repubblica

Food was very good. A peaceful restaurant in one of the main plazas of the city! Had a chance to have a bottle of wine and a few local beers and just eat and relax. Great place to people watch with all the shops and the merri-go-round right there. It started raining and it had a retractable roof so... read more

I ate here two times during my recent trip to Florence. I had the pesto pasta the first night and it was one of the best pesto dishes I've ever had. The moscato was also one of the best I've ever had. I returned again the following night because I enjoyed it so much.Great location as well. I enjoyed watching... More

We chose this restaurant for lunch on our first day in Florence. The restaurant is in a beautiful location in the Piazza Republican. The restaurant has a really lovely atmosphere and was warm on a cool rainy day. We enjoyed the €10 lunch meal, which was a choice of either pizza or pasta with a drink. Bread was plentiful which...

Tried this restaurant on our last night in Florence after having a really good dinner in the restaurant next door and thought it wouldn't be a bad choice- how wrong was I!! Fancied a change from pasta and pizza so ordered a chicken in a diavola sauce so was expecting something with a big and flavour. After an ok starter,... More

Had a very nice dinner! Gnocchi with cream pear sauce was delightful, but pasta with alfredo was a bit flavorless. Adding a little extra parm helped! The highlight though was the tiramisu - it was amazing.

We have visited Cafe Donnini a number of times and every time the flood has been great. The Calzone especially is one of the best I've tried. The location is first class - the perfect spot to people watch over a glass of wine.

What a find! The piazza is full of restaurants but this bar far was the best of them all. Great views across the square, service was brilliant and the food was well worth the money. Not remotely expensive, good recommendations from the staff on both food and wine, especially helpful as we both have restricted diets but one of the... More
