Want a sophisticated place were you can rest for a while?

One of the best places in Florence! For all meals! Professional staff, plenty of room where we expect to have a good moment.

Good variety of coffee, desserts and snacks. Slightly expensive but the location (next to Uffizi museum and the Palace) deserves it.

We know negroni from abroad and my Italian husband says it was the best negroni ever :) He know what he is saying. Next day I bought Luca's book (they have it both in English... More

We are on a multi-site trip around Italy. Stopped here for a drink before our visit to the Uffizi, it took 15 minutes for us to track down a waiter, even though we had attracted attention. Eventually a waiter came over and said that we were not sat in his area!!! He then suggested we calm down. Coffee was served.... More

Yes, it was very early morning (before breakfast!). Yes, it was already a very hot day. Yes, this was without a doubt one of the best hot chocolates that I have EVER had. It is definitely more sipping chocolate, thick and ultra-rich. But don't even think of leaving Florence without trying it if you are a fan. I am so... More

Nice view, good service. Not so expensive. A very good place to stop, especially in the afternoons when the crowd is not so intense

Had eaten a few meals in Rome and Florence during our holiday and the lunch we had here was the best so far. Even though the place was packed and busy the waiter still served us quite promptly and efficiently. We ordered Seafood Spaghetti and Gnocchi in Sorrentina sauce for around €26 in total. Both were cooked well and tasted... More

I have stayed in Florence for a week and it was my real pleasure to take a few lunches at Cafe Rivoire. It is true that it's not cheap but just remember you are sitting in a place loaded with history and culture is all around you. The view is amazing, the feel is priceless. This is not just a... More

We stopped here for an aperitif one evening. It was a very hot day which felt even hotter sitting behind the glass surround of the outside seating area. The aperitifs were the most expensive we had in the whole of Tuscany though they did come with olives, and nuts etc. However this attracted the pesky pigeons to come and actually... More

The views from the caffe are worth the prices; in front of Piazza della Signoria, across the Palazzo Vechio this is the place after a tired stroll in Florence, a break for an espresso with with one their decadent delicious pastries. I went 3 times during my stay in Florence always at the middle of the afternoon.

Staying in Uffizi

Neighborhood Profile
Uffizi
Every visitor coming to Florence for the first time will immediately identify with Uffizi. As in past times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can reach the city center, the Florence that everybody dreams of. In just a few steps, visitors can experience the rare beauty of the capital of the Renaissance. walking delighted across Palazzo Vecchio and overlooking Piazza della Signoria, up to the Loggia of the Uffizi where it is possible to fully taste the talent of the best artists who animated Florence over the centuries. When the sun goes down, there’s nothing better than a walk along the river Arno up to the ancient bridge, Ponte Vecchio. It is full of jewels and decorated by the colors captured in postcards.
