Cozy place with good drinks and food. A nice buffet with a good variety of dishes, cold and warm, which are constantly renewed. Friendly service, 10€ pp! Cool!

Terrible service and drinks-we had poor mojitos and an aperol spritz served in a tall glass?! The bar man then gave me the wrong change and didn’t apologise. We left swiftly and i would not recommend.

The food was very good especially the sea food salad and spadellate di mare. The filetto di orata all’isolana was ok The service was i bit slow due to a birthday party dinner.

We had apperitivo with friends with 2 kids! We had buffet and drnks! It was ok! We were there from 7:30 and around 9pm the waitress told us twice that we need to go, because at 9 there is a reservation. My husband and his...friend was still driking their beers! Do you really do that to costumers?More

We walked a lot this afternoon and were looking for a comfortable place to have a wine/beer and relax. Soul Kitchen was perfect. Our hostess was really helpful and the service in general was great. Really reasonably priced drinks and free wifi to catch up...for the day. Highly recommended.More

Enjoyed the spritz and well-stocked buffet with surprising quality and variety for 10 euros. No meal required. Great service and relaxed atmosphere. Seemed popular with locals.

We went to Soul Kitchen for our first apertivo since arriving in Italy. There was a great selection of tasty foods and the drinks were delicious. The music and ambiance was also awesome in our opinion as a young couple. I recommend it to anyone...looking for a filling apertivo.More

One of the BEST places to go for aperitivo in Florence. Great location for a 20s crowd as it sits in the Santa Croce area. Ten euro for a drink and delicious buffet, can’t go wrong!

We had delicious drinks and buffet at Soul Kitchen. For 10 Euros each, you are provided with quite a spread of food, buffet style. Much of it is Mediterranean food but quite a good selection. Go up as often as you like. The bar is...quite simple in appearance but again, you can't beat the price! They run this from 7-10 pm. We made a reservation.More

Had a great time there for a couple of hours and had a couple of really good cocktails. The aperitivos where good too, especially the wings! We were going back the next night but had a dinner reservation we couldn't change.

Santa Croce
Stop and stare at the beauty and symmetry of the
Basilica of Santa Croce any time day or night.
Unraveling around it are a number of architectural and
artistic masterpieces, from the Synagogue to the
Central National Library. As a hub for young people,
the area gets busy with people who want to have fun: a
continuous flow of tourists and locals become animated
by songs and dances.

Yes.. It begins at 7pm I believe. You buy one drink per person and there is quite a good buffet which ends at 10 included. Very good value!!
