This bustling restaurant is a great find between the Accademia and the Duomo. The food is fresh and tasty, lots of local specialities, great local beers and wine and full of as many locals as tourists on the day we went! The service was fast and friendly. We ended up returning twice!

We discovered this place walking from the Academia Gallery to the Duomo. We were looking for a cup of coffee and a place to rest for a few minutes. We ended up sitting at the bar and chatting with the owner who speaks perfect english. We decided to have a treat and got a serving of the tiramisu. The tiramisu... More

Found this small cafe/restaurant while on xmas holidays 2015/16. We went every day for breakfast and always called in for a drink on the way back to our accommodation. A great location in central Firenze and only a stones throw from the Duomo. A family business only one year old owned and operated by family that have an interesting story... More

This was the first place my wife and I dined while in Florence as we strolled to the Duomo after sleeping in. We got there during the lunch rush but were seated right away. All the staff we encountered were friendly and accommodating to us tourists even though this is a bit off the beaten path. The menu is not... More

We had breakfast and snacks in this cafe for about two weeks. They have simple but great food. Their hot chocolate and fresh homemade fruit salad are absolutely delicious. The staff was so welcoming and helpful, they made us feel at home.

Was staying in an appartment accross the street and visited this restaurant mainly for a quick & easy breakfasts during our stay. This cafe was charming, with good coffees & pastries. The fruit salad was fresh every morning!! It was such a joy to have this cozy place right accross from our place while in Florence. I highly recommend it!

This is not restaurant. They only serving quick snacks. We went there around 15:30 and menu have only few warm options so we choose pasta with tomato and basil and anti-paste with chicken liver. It was really mediocre, I wasn't impressed at all and was surprised over all that great feedback. Not my cup of tea. Pasta was pretty much... More

A short review I'm afraid - we only stopped here on our way back from Galleria dell 'Accademia for liquid refreshment. The indoor section looked wonderful; the service was 1st class - very helpful staff & a lovely outdoor seating area where we sat (on the pavement) - ideal for smokers. Whilst there, it was very obvious that the food... More

A great place to go and enjoy a lovely lunch at great price. I would call it simple authentic Italian food at its best. Great place, quick service, and yummy food. We had this place recommended by a local as it's not the normal tourist place and we really enjoyed it.

Staying in Duomo

Neighborhood Profile
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
