We stopped in for a drink, but if we had the time we’d have returned for a meal. Very nice place. Great service and the food looked terrific. Even just grabbing a beer, the service was excellent!

Visited on a Sunday morning. The one small pastry ordered was dry and overly sweet. The entire staff looked miserable/unfriendly. It has been years since I wrote a review. This place was too special not to mention.

An excellent caffe since 1733. Coffee is very good but the pastries drive you to heaven. The waiters are a bit slow but they very polite and professional.

Duomo
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
