This place is amazing. My second visit, this time with friends. We stood in line for about 20 minutes and the cantucci were worth every second and more. In fact, I came back two days later and stood in line again to pick up more...to bring back to Rome. Now that I've finished them, I'm trying to find an excuse to take a day trip to Florence to buy more. If you're in Florence you MUST go here. The cantucci are uniquely soft and delicately sweet. They also have little biscuits/cookies and other sweet cakes and things, which are all delicious.More

The biscotti is the best I have ever eaten. Moist, flavorful and delicious. They have a variety of different kinds/flavors. Try them all. We did! Every one was amazing

The shop isn't very big, but there's a pretty good selection of cookies (and cakes) and the ones I've tried are delicious.

Find this shop when you are in Florence - it is really WOW! There are like 10 kinds of cookies to choose from. They are soft and very tasty! You can choose and buy as many as u want or take them as a souvenir...in packs Note that they only do cookies, so you can grab some coffee on the way thereMore

I'm not a biscotti fan. At all. But, I figured if you are in Italy, you need to try some. This was not like biscotti, but much softer and PERFECT. We went back twice before leaving town. The almond and chocolate were my favs. I...can still smell it a few weeks later...if you go, please ship me some to Atlanta, GA!!!More

I called in love with the popular Vin santo e cantucci while in Florence, which led me to this place: fresh cantucci packed in the morning and sold in the store. The staff was very patient explaining the various types and we tasted three types...(pictured below) and we took all of them! Small little store to buy cantucci as a gift (my family in law loved it) or for yourself to enjoy !!! Will be back once I visit Florence again!More

The best fiorentini we have ever had! The best amaretti cookies ever!! We visited once, by chance, and we got hooked so badly we had to come back a week after just for those cookies before we got back home (-:

The lady was nice and let us try several types of cantuccini. They last up to 3 months so they make an excellent souvenir or gift.

I'm Italian and I pay attention on food, for me or as a present for my friend. That's a very good shop in Florence. Better of mercato centrale. Cantucci very soft and delicious. So very recommended

A local lady recommended this Bakery to me, so l popped in today to buy a treat for tea. The gentleman who served me spoke perfect English and was very friendly, even though l was only buying one small purchase. I shall certainly purchase gifts...from here. There are samples to try and my cake was so fresh and delicious, packed with almonds and dried fruit, and extremely good value.More

We popped here one afternoon as we’d heard their biscuit selection was excellent. We picked up some cookies and walked to the Duomo to eat them. They were very delicious and we were very glad we sought this place out. Would recommend for those with...a sweet tooth in Florence!More
