Great location to enjoy a drink, snack or three course meal, While we waited for our order we were given some tiny morsels to which were delicious! We weren't rushed through our meal and the waiter was attentive and spoke very good English when clearly my lack of Italian showed. After our meal we were given limoncello on the house... More

Don't miss this! It's famous for a reason. Instead of sitting down and eating, act like a local and head to Rivoire in the early morning and join the crowd in their early morning coffee indulgence standing at the bar. You will get served quickly, the coffee is delicious, and it’s affordable! Highly recommend grabbing a small sandwich and/or pastry... More

We went for our Spritz during aperitivo time, and its was an experience, to have a drink overlooking the amazing piazza Signoria! Friendly and smiling service, nice snacks to go with our drink and the view. Well worth the 13 euro, that each drink costs.

While walking around Florence we wanted to stop somewhere for a quick drink to rehydrate. This restaurant is in a great location. However the menus outside don't display how much any drinks are. After realising it was 6€ for a water or fizzy drink we decided to leave. Especially as we had been to other restaurants close by and knew... More

It sits at the heart of the Piazza della Signoria so location-wise you cannot get more central. However inevitably you get the crowds. It is a tourist trap. When people say €6 for a Coke this is where they mean - it is insanely expensive for what it is. Admittedly the pastries are nice but there are plenty of places... More

Lovely staff and nice location. We had the ciocolata calda and it was amazing. My husband hates hot drinks generally but he loved this ciocolata calda.

Situated on a prime location on a prominent square of Italy, the ambience, cleanliness and the happy and prompt staff was perfect and complimented the delicious lunch and summery cocktails. Would surely recommend it !!

Staying in Uffizi

Neighborhood Profile
Every visitor coming to Florence for the first time will immediately identify with Uffizi. As in past times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can reach the city center, the Florence that everybody dreams of. In just a few steps, visitors can experience the rare beauty of the capital of the Renaissance. walking delighted across Palazzo Vecchio and overlooking Piazza della Signoria, up to the Loggia of the Uffizi where it is possible to fully taste the talent of the best artists who animated Florence over the centuries. When the sun goes down, there’s nothing better than a walk along the river Arno up to the ancient bridge, Ponte Vecchio. It is full of jewels and decorated by the colors captured in postcards.
