I have to admit that the view from the terras of this cafe is splendid! You have the palazzio vecchio infront of you. That is the positive side. We ordered 1 thee and 1 caffee and we paid 11,50 € for some hot water and, for Italian standards, a terrible caffee. I refuse to order here something again, this is... More

Stopped there for a coffee in the Tuscan sun. As other reviewers wrote, if you're by a famous landmark, you gotta pay the price. Ended up paying €18 for 2 double espressos. Simple maths: espresso €4.5, double x2, €9 for one. Our waiter was truly a character and seemed to both enjoy his time and entertain others with compliments. 1... More

Like many cafés near famous landmarks, this place is over priced...bordering on absurdity. We really wanted a place to sit and rest after a long morning of walking and this seemed to be a good location. Well, you pay for what you get in Florence apparently. 6 euro cappuccino and 10 euro prosecco are the norm here so just make... More

Had 2 delicious cakes from here today and they were less than 3€. Pricey to sit down but the cakes themselves are good value.

If you're a chocolate fan, you don't want to miss this place. Perfect location and priced accordingly (really high). To save money, order inside - preferrably on the bar. Waiters are old school - helpful, reserved and professional.

Located on the Piazza della Signoria, this cafe offers entrees and a great variety of desserts. You can enjoy the atmosphere of the square, eating outside, and lingering to hear the bell tower toll. We had pasta and the famous thick hot chocolate. Enjoy!

I see that others had some service issues at this location, but I am pretty (very) picky about service and didn't have any problems here. To the contrary, our server was attentive and even pretty friendly (not typical for this city, in our experience!). We sat outside on the terrace and enjoyed people-watching on the Piazza, drinking delicious and unique... More

Was taken hete by a friend who lives in Florence. She insisted on the hot chocolate and I know why! Thick delicious creamy warming hot chocolate which is a true culinary adventure and pleasure. Good to savour during the winter months. Generally well placed cafe with typical menu choices.

If you want Gianduia chocolates that melt in your mouth of some of the best quality, this is the place to get them. Even though they are a little pricy, they are some of the best ones you can eat. However they do not sell them in the middle of summer because they would melt due to the heat. They... More

Right on the Piazza della Signoria, opposite the Palazzio Vecchio and the copy of the famous David, this caffe is a brilliant place for a snack, a piece of cake, a nice hot or cold drink and the very best of Florentine atmosphere. Somehow I managed to end up there at least once every day.
