“Good meal. But great just for drinks in the afternoon.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

If you'd like to relax while looking at the Cathedral, this is an excellent spot. Get there early because it's so popular that it fills up quickly.

Good place for a coffee and dessert while enjoying the view of the cathedral as the Serpente is just outside.

“Second visit - food good location unbeatable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

This was my second visit to La Serpente. I actually made a detour to visit. Prices are very reasonable in the cafe - only 41 euro for 4 lunches including 2 soft drinks.
Unbeatable location across from the Cathedral. Would not hesitate to eat here again.

“perfect location in front of cathedral”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

Outside on a beautiful evening, drinking good wine and eating good food from a sensibly priced menu. No problem in taking time to relax over meal and coffee
