Delicious meal and good coffee on beautiful Piazza della Signoria

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.

Superb location and has an old world feeling, Coffee and patisserie's were excellent. Service was perhaps a bit slow but enjoyable none the less.

Should have known with the location being in Piazza della Signoria that this would not have been this best of places to eat but my husband ate here one morning while I was museum hopping. He liked it and I was dying for an omelet so we went here. The omelet was good but nothing great. The view was amazing... More

Expect to be gouged as you sit and watch the tourists flow in and out of the Piazza della Signoria. Have a drink, check the historic Rivoire off your list and move on.

The location is just great and so is the coffee. The sweets are also very good. It is a bit overpriced but you obviously pay for the view. Service takes way too long. You can just sit there and enjoy the surroundings.

Ok, the prices are high, you pay for the location. Ok, the tiramisu cake and coffee were also expensive but they were GREAT. But the service...so arogant! Would not come back here just because of them.
