Our waiter was very nice and attentive. We had the continental breakfast and an omelette. The croissant and rolls were yummy. The omelette was ok. Nice view of the square and some amazing looking desserts.

This is a great place to stop for an afternoon snack and drink or dessert and coffee. Absolutely delicious chocolate!!! The service was nice and one of our waiters proceeded to give us a history of their chocolate making. Take some of these home for souvenirs. They will not disappoint!

We tried pastries and mini sandwiches - all was excellent. The person who helped us was very friendly and made some great suggestions - the best of which was to try the Grandma's cake (torta della nonna). It was so good we went back for another one the next day.

We wanted to have a meal in the vicinity of the Palacio and settled here. We were prepared to pay a premium and they did not disappoint. The only good thing here is the location. Food was average. The waiters weren't friendly either. When we requested olive oil and vinegar plus a saucer (small plate) where we could mix the... More

My wife and I stopped at Rivoire for a quick lunch based on TripAdvisor reviews. We gambled and just split a simple Margherita Pizza. We knew that ordering a Margherita Pizza when you’re not in Naples is risky, but it was really quite good at Rivoire. We didn’t order any of Rivoire’s fabled pastries or chocolates; that was our mistake.... More

We had a good Italian meal at another restaurant, then went to Cafe Rivoire for dessert. We tried five different dishes, and all were excellent. The atmosphere was fairly formal - nice room, waiters in suits. Location was one of the best in Florence - right off of Piazza Della Signoria. If you want an upscale dessert experience, this is...

When we visit Florence, stopping in for the thick, delicious, amazing hot chocolate is a must. I have never tasted anything like it. Pastries and other delicacies are also worth stopping in for. Fantastico!!

Stopped two evenings in a row for a pre-dinner cocktail prior to a reservation at another ristorante. Drinks were excellent (Negroni, Manhattan, and a Sazerac). Great, friendly service - especially since we made it clear that we would not be ordering dinner. Very generous tray of olives, crackers, cheeses, etc. served (gratis) with the drinks.

Thank Chasfilar

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.
