Nice place, but ridiculously overpriced... One needs to know they are doing for the location and that one time is enough...

Rivoire is Rivoire. The most beautiful Caffe in Florence, If you sit outside, you're in Piazza Signoria, inside, you're surrounded by enormous Murano chandeliers... I love Rivoire! You will too.

Wonderful, friendly service and the best people-watching! Remember to go into the store to look at the candy and sweets to take home as gifts.

Rivoire was located right in the heart of Florence and had great food. We stopped for coffee one morning and returned late that night for a snack. It is a great place to people-watch when sitting outside. Staff was friendly and polite, even though I spoke very little Italian. The desserts were particularly tasty (and very sweet by American standards).... More

We were here for Christmas eve. It was absolutely fantastic from the service to the food and the environment. Situated right in the middle of Piazza della Signoria. Recommend to sit outside to enjoy the winter breeze with ddelicious wine.

Had a very pleasant lunch at this cafe. Delicious pasta, good coffee, yummy desserts (especially Nona's cake), good service and all while looking out at the beautiful Piazza della Signoria.

We have never had anything but coffee and pastries at this coffee shop/restaurant. The location is perfect - right in the Piazza della Signoria. The coffee is good, but not as good as our first choice - Cafe Gilli. Most of the time their biscotti are good, but I have had them when they seemed to be stale.

In the beautiful square of piazza Della Signoria we had an amazing traditional hot chocolate, thick and rich, apparently the recipe is secret since long time...touristic location and full of tourists who do not mind quite an expensive coffee. Quality was excellent and a nice stop in a winter day.

Facing the Palazzo Vecchio, in the Piazza della Signoria, this is my favorite coffee and pastries shop in all of Firenze and possibly all of Italia! Weather permitting, the outdoor dining is divine with the Fountain of Neptune, Rape of the Sabine Women, a David knock off, and a wealth of other gorgeous statues. When I lived in Firenze, I...

My wife and her best friend loved the coffee so much here that they had trouble adjusting to regular coffee when they returned home. Great place for a drink and snack or a full meal. Very clean, and the staff was pleasant and patient with our poor Italian language skills.
