“Unique and creative mix of Soul Kitchen”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

Florence is a lovely city in the middle of Italy, it is a small town but at the same time international.
I travelled and lived in a lot of places inside and outside Europe, but Florence is Florence! The main street of clubs is Via dei Benci near Santa Croce, one of the major and famous squares.
My favourite restaurant-club is called Soul Kitchen. Do you know why? It offers a perfect mix between food and event. Every week, it takes care of its clients with a traditional Italian food and also organizes theme menu’.
I attended several theme aperitifs, it surprises me every time: a creative meal joined with traditional music and atmosphere. This means that it attracts different persons, so if you are single this is a right club for you: new people….new food! It is a unique place, where you can find a creative and international staffs. Also, the staff of Soul Kitchen promotes and organizes some of the main events in Florence and its surrounding areas, so I bet you can use this place as a pre-club to know what is going on in town and also you can get into the guest list of the event!!! So what you are waiting for? Try the unique and creative mix of Soul Kitchen.

“The one place in town that puts a capital 'S' into Soul.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

Soul Kitchen is probably by far one of the coolest and tastiest places I have been to in Florence. You get the full dynamic experiences. Smack bang in the centre of historic Florence you get sense that you've stepped into the something from 'Back to the Future'. Round the corner from Piazza Santa Croce, you walk into a restaurant developed by a group of cutting-edge contemporary designers, with a keen sens of good taste (both visually and culinary). Lunch times you will find that it stands up to its name and puts the 'Soul' into all its recipes’. Wait until the evening and you will find some of the easiest going bar tenders, who have a tenacious capacity to wip-up some pretty mean cocktails. I highly recommend it to anyone visiting or living in Florence.

“Great Experience at Soul Kitchen”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

Had a great aperitivo at Soul Kitchen last week. They offered a delicious selection of classic italian dishes like polenta and wild boar, crostini, and ravioli. The place was full of people-clearly a sign of how great the food is. Because of the lively atmosphere, we decided to stay late into the night for drinks. The bartender that night, Lorenzo, made my friends and I the best espresso martinis we have ever had! I liked Soul Kitchen so much that I went back a few days later for lunch and had another great meal. This place does not disappoint! If you are in Florence, you must go for the food and the atmosphere. Although I am not a native Italian, the atmosphere and the employees made me feel welcome and comfortable. I will definitely go back the next time I return to Florence!
