Great location

I recently came here for a cappuccino and to read and watch the crowds in the piazza. It was wonderful. I would definitely come back here.

If you want a treat or dessert after another restaurant, do not go anywhere but this place. The location is spectacular, the staff warm and professional, and the chocolate delicious. I don't often post reviews but I had such a great time here I had to write. It was the best thing I did in Italy. My wife had a... More

The location and service were great. The food had next to no flavour. The prices were atrocious. How can they charge this much? This is a large place and they have only one bathroom for the women and one for the men? There were long line ups for both.

The hot chocolate here is thick and luxurious, only a small cup but any more would be too much of a good thing. The pastry I had to accompany the drink was filled with fresh fruit and delicious, whilst my husband's panna cotta looked as good as it tasted. The service was excellent a very smiley waiter who talked us... More

You can find food, pastries, gelato, and cocktails of exactly the same quality at a much better price. However, if this is your one trip to Florence or you have never done it… It is worth the splurge to sit and enjoy the incredible view of Palazzo Vecchio and people watch. You will be able to take lovely photos of... More

Great location opposite Uffizi overlooking the piazza. Definitely the place to see and be seen. Lunch was good, impeccable service. No rush to vacate the table. A calm and relaxing corner overlooking a very busy square.

I took some pastries to have at the hotel. The chocolate cake was stale and flavorless. I have never experienced flavorless chocolate. The tiramisu was better-tasting, but not very fresh. From my selections, this was not a pleasant experience. If the establishment was closer to the hotel, I would have returned both items.

This cafe has everything you will look for in Florence. The coffee is wonderful but please don't pass on the cakes, they are to die for. We were fortunate to be staying around the corner and every day we had coffee, and each night we took desserts back with us to our room. The cheesecake was my favourite. There is... More

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.
