Wonderful food, good service and amazing view

Decided to have dinner here after checking out a few places... Reason - great view of Palazo Vecchio. Food was very nice, fresh and reasonably priced. Service was authentic Italian and friendly.

This was a really nice dinner. Situated right outside the old palace and on the busy square it was full of energy, lots of atmosphere and beautiful romantic views. Really well priced pasta that tasted delicious and awesome traditional Tuscan deserts. Also has good free wifi

Again a nice example how your staff can ruine your efforts to sell excellent products in a very nice place. The frappe was really good, the view on Palaze Vecchio unique, ... but the staff did not seem to bother to serve us well except when they obviously were waiting for a tip they did not deserve.

It was started by the official chocolatier of the Savoy family and this explains why their hot chocolate is the best. Their desserts do not trail too far behind. We did not try the food as we were apprehensive of the quality and the prices.They do charge a premium for the location but it does feel misplaced when it comes... More

Stayed at an apartment directly across the street and couldn't wait to pop by Caffe Rivoire in the mornings for a cappuccino and a millefoglie! We only had bar service the three days we were in Florence, but enjoyed the experience. The staff preparing the cappuccino and the inevitable afternoon espresso was polite and efficient. Nice spot to pop in... More

We stayed in an apartment very close to Caffe Rivoire and went there every day, either in the morning for delicious parties or in the afternoon for a lovely Prosecco-fueled break. The wait staff was very friendly and efficient. My 11-yr old daughter fell in live with their delicious hot chocolate. While pricey, it's a wonderful stop at the Piazza... More

We ate breakfast there every morning. It was nice and convenient for us. The staff was very pleasant and spoke English most of the time.

The food is good for what we had - salad and sandwich. Great location in the Piazza. Eat and watch the people go by. You might even see a celebrity travel guide - Rick Steve's strolled by as we were having lunch.

The location was great. Many different desserts to choose from. It was very busy and all the staff seemed very rushed. Liked the food but didn't feel like it was the place to stay and people watch.

Best view best desserts but very pricey. Spoil yourself once on you trip. Check out all the treats skip the ice cream and go for a traditional dessert with coffee you will dream about it after you've gone. Recommended for dessert MeuterMedia
