Description: Il Dolce Vita e un nome che significa tendenza, aperitivo, atmosfere piacevoli e sensuali. Nato nel 1985, e stato precursore dei locali della notte diventando presto un fondamentale punto di riferimento per l'aperitivo e il dopo cena dei fiorentini e tantissimi "epicurei" di passaggio.Un locale che ha saputo rinnovarsi con successo negli anni, cambiando nelle forme e arredi passando sempre attraverso le opere di famosi architetti come: Simon Miller, Claudio Nardi e Gaetano Pesce, celebre architetto, artista e designer residente a New York.Luogo di arte dunque, con mostre di quadri e foto ogni 15/30 giorni, che completano l'ambiente con grande stile.

“Lunch before seeing the Frescos at Cappella Brancci”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2011

Smart fashionable café with lots of art works. We sat outside under the awning and had a bottle of mineral water as an accompaniment to a Salad Nicoise and a Salad Dolce Vita. Food quality was fantastic and at a reasonable price for Florence.

“Modern, trendy bar in Oltrarno. Great aperitivo!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2011

Great place to people watch and feel like a local, while nursing a spritz and munching on delicious apertivi. Anyone complaining that this place is expensive is either crazy or oblivious, because for a mere 7 euros you can order a Spritz and then chow down to your heart's content on the plentiful aperitivo buffet. Just watch out, because the friendly bartenders at this joint make them pretty strong! The interior of the bar is classy and modern (I swear it looked better in real life than on the website). Still, most of the attractive, well-dressed Florentines in their 20's and 30's spill out onto the veranda even in the cold of late October.
