The place entrance is not that obvious to find. You’ll be asked to fill a COVID form before hopping on an elevator to reach the rooftop.

The place is pretty cool and chill if the weather is good.

The view on the Orno and the city is there but don’t expect to really see it while you have your drinks as you’re surrounded by ~1,20m walls.

The capacity is ~30seats so it won’t be very busy. That’s the reason why it’s highly recommended have a reservation.

The service we had by the waitress and the bar tender was very good ; listed, answered questions, gave advices, served well. Sounds silly but it’s unfortunately rare in 2020.

Price: the minimum entrance « fee » 25€ for the first drink then the cocktails are ~14€ per unit. If you do the math, it’s not cheap at all but it’s good.

If you don’t really mind about cost and looking for a beautiful place far for the crowd to have few very good cocktails then this is your rendez-vous!

We got here early for an aperativo, and were among the few people there, despite it being high season (more turned up later). Drinks were delicious and yes a little pricey but who cares and they kept giving us tons of snacks. Views to die for. Just like others have said, you need to leave your ID in the lobby which ended up being a pretty runaround for us as I forgot to collect my licence after a few drinks and we left for Rome the next day. It cost 35 Euros to have it mailed to me, but at least they did it right?

I went up here after reading a few reviews and recommendations. As a solo traveller, I went early in the evening, so did not experience the perfect sunset. I did enjoy my wine and the appetizers that came with it. Depending on where you sit, you may or my not have a great view of the river, as the hedges obscure the view when you are seated along the perimeter.

We went to this place on a recommendation from a friend, so we were expecting great things. Upon arrival, we were seated on low couches that gave a little to no view of Florence and the river. This led us and other customers to get up and awkwardly squeeze in between other couches and people to get a photo of the view. We ordered the ‘Lucky Smoke’ and ‘Tiki-talion’ cocktails which Took about 20 minutes to arrive. The ‘Tiki-talian’ tasted very strongly of alcohol and had little to no other flavor and did not come with anything to mix the strong and hefty poor of alcohol floating on the top. The ‘Lucky Smoke’ was very watered down, full of ice, and tasted like chemicals (but not in the good whiskey way). When we asked for the check we were given the wrong one, and we we received our own, it was €76. The two drinks were €21 and we also got a €6 bottle of water. According to the waiter, the hefty price was due to the reservation which also included the drinks. We were not aware that this was a part of the reservation, otherwise we would never had gone. Overall the service was poor and the staff were aloof, the atmosphere was uncomfortable with loud and obnoxious music and an over crowded seating area, and the price was significantly too high for the quality of the beverages.

This rooftop bar was a complete scam. We put a credit card down to reserve a table and the email stated “will be charged if a no-show”. Instead the bar charged us $140 for even sitting at the table no matter what drink we ordered. After having two drinks, we were surprised with a bill of $220–more expensive than our extravagant dinner that night. The management told us this was standard when we questioned a “reservation charge” on the bill yet it was never stated in making this reservation. Save money and go to another bar!!

The views were great. The only reason I gave three stars. Dont listen to the other reviews, you do get great 360 views of florence from wherever you are sitting.

That said…
As someone who loves cocktails and doesn’t mind shelling out money for them, i still ended up getting a beer just because I thought the list was unimpressive. They were also some 20+ euros. Extremely overpriced!

The views were really nice, great central location and comfortable chairs and good drinks selection.

However, despite it being aperitivi hour, only a few dry peanuts and biscuits were offered, despite the extremely steep price of EUR 25 per drink!

The menu and the staff did not indicate that we would have to pay EUR 25, and I was shocked at that price as it did not include any proper food or snacks like almost every other bar in Italy does. We only found this out when we asked for the bill, and saw the table next to us have the same unpleasant surprise. Staff not particularly proactive - we always had to try and grab their attention for a drink or the bill despite it not being very busy. The pricing spoiled the experience and it is a shame this isn't explained to customers. If I had known we had to spend EUR 25 each either way, irrespective of the cost of the actual drink ordered, we would have got a bottle of wine or a more expensive drink. There are other terraces in Florence offering better value.

Booked as directed on Whats App. On 21st July for visit on 25th July.
Received confirmation via WhatsApp on the 21st July.
Arrived on time at ground level of the Hotel.

Temperature and disclaimer taken and signed.

Booking confirmation checked........!!!!
Security then rang the bar upstairs and after 5 minutes of discussion and examination of my phone we were allowed in the escalator.
On arrival we were met with a young lady in a manner which was rude and to be honest a little snobbish and told we could sit at one of the tables but she wanted to see our booking confirmation. Another 3 minutes checking our WhatsApp confirmation despite the fact they clearly had distanced tables available. The young lady made us feel like we had cheated our way in and that she was doing us a favour.

Once we managed to get over this the evening was pleasant however the welcome certainly was anything but pleasant.
The 3 stars are for the venue the drinks and the views.

Dear Buffnut, First of all we are sincerely sorry for the perception of our welcome, it wasn’t at all the intention of our staff member who is truly and genuinely dedicated to accommodate all requests at all times. Having to respect new roles this year and having to managed a limited capacity on our Terrace, we do implement some checks upon guests’ arrival which are essential of our internal procedures and are in the interest of guests and staff. We invite you to come back as we hope to have another opportunity to offer you a fantastic experience as we love to provide to our guests everyday. Looking forward to seeing you soon, we thank you once more for your feedback. Sincerely, Team La Terrazza

The drinks are pricey but well made. The bar is very nice and the views are exceptional. The staff is lovely. Book ahead of time. Check-in at the hotel reservation desk, turn in your id, get a number, go to the 6th floor at the end of the hall go through the open door and up the stairwell.

The staff were unbelievably rude and unfriendly. We arrived slightly early and were sent away by the man on the front desk. Then when we finally arrived on the terrace which was empty, we were told that as a couple we couldn’t sit on the comfortable banquette around the terrace with the views and had to sit instead on stools in the middle with no view. Do not go unless you like rude staff.
