The best apperitivo I've ever had (amazing choice and quality) to go with best cocktail I've ever had! Also the staff were so friendly and attentive, particularly our lovely waitress who additionally spoke great English as apparently she recently studied in the UK. Will 100% be back! One of my favourite meals in Florence so far (and that's saying something!)

We dropped in here for a late afternoon drink and snack. Very pleasant spot to people watch. We simply had cold cuts and cheese with drinks, very pleasant and well priced.

We were told by a friend to come here for the famous 'apericena' - a drink with an all you can eat buffet, and we were not disappointed. My boyfriend ordered a long island ice tea (no holding back here!) and I had a martini recommended by the friendly waiter. There was a good variety of food and it was... More

This bar has the best cocktails we've had in Italy! The bartenders were very friendly and made us feel at home. Not to mention, the drinks were pieces of art!

Great spot for excellent drinks prepared by a bartender that takes pride in his craft. You can make a meal out of the appetizer buffet with a ood selection of freshly prepared food. It's a bargain in an upbeat spot here in Florence.

We only called here for an aperitivo. Friendly staff, very busy, even with locals. Menu looked good with reasonable prices. From what we saw the food looked good as well. Would go back again to try something off the menu if in the area.

The bartender, Vanderson, is the best bartender I've encountered in my travels in Italy. He makes the most delicious drinks! I recommend the passion fruit mojito, but all of the cocktails we tried were delicious. He randomly gave us a free shot and fruit/chocolate/sugar plate just for ordering a few drinks and hanging out at the bar, which was amazing.... More

Wow, what a find! We walked by this bar, and figured we'd have a drink before heading back to our hotel. The staff was so nice and fun, that one drink turned into a few! Tomasso and his team made us feel at home in Florence, like the typical neighborhood bar. Tomasso shared lots of fun Florence facts with us,... More
