this isn't cheap, we paid around 60 euros for a pasta meal and dessert and one drink each but it is a great location and the food was lovely. Service was also very good. It is situated on the Piazza di Signoria and opposite the palazzo Vecchio

I didn't have much time when I visited this restaurant so I only ordered one thing, the ravioli. It came in good time, and tasted great. The bread basket was quite good too but the water was a bit expensive. The dessert selection is incredible so I did get something to go which was delicious! And of course, the location... More

This famous little cafe was across from where i stayed, and so I went there a few times. The first night, I was extremely tired, and just flopped down at an outside table right at the front of the cafe. You can't get a betterview of the Piazza Della Signoria, and all the people moving past. You are looking at... More

While visiting Florence, friends recommended we visit for the greatest hot chocolate. We arrived for a dinner when it was cooler and not so crowded. We sat on the patio with the fans and misters blowing. First place in all of Italy we received water with ice and lemon! We ordered salads. Ingredients very fresh. Ordered coffee, hot chocolate, chocolate... More

We went there for a coffee break before dinner. The coffee was good and came with finger sandwiches for free. Atomsphere was absolutely fantastic!

We didn't have lunch or dinner there, but we tried the pastries in the afternoon. We went there two times in 3 days, because the pastries were absolutely amazing and refined. The semifreddo was a blast, the profiteroles a dream, and the tiramisu one of the best. Go for those and you will go straight to heaven. We sat outside... More

The Cafe Rivoire is located in the historic square Piazza della Signoria and a very picturesque place to dine. I had the best egg omelet I ever had for brunch one day and a delicious lunch the next day and the service was great. From the cafe you can admire the classical sculptures of Michaelangelo's David (the original is in... More

If you want to sit back and relax with a cappuccino and a piece if torte, and take in the beautiful historic piazza, this is the place to do it. We enjoyed relaxing and people watching while eating and drinking. Good service. Many choices for tortes (pastry) and pricing not bad. Cappuccino was pricey but very good. Face it, you're... More

The service was excellent and considering the prime location the food is not extortionately priced. There is a choice for larger or smaller appetites. The Rivoire is closed on Mondays.

Full on touristy and expensive but you are paying for the beautiful setting of the cafe, the chocolate cakes looked divine and not as over priced as the drinks were. Waiters were friendly and the cafe itself was first class. Busy as you would expect in such a prime location, the Hari Krishnas were singing and dancing in the middle... More
