“You must go here! Local but so sophisticated”
Reviewed May 19, 2013 via mobile

We were given a tip to go to a local trattoria which turned out to be totally punk. Across the street we found a sweet wine bar, where we saw a great local mix of Bohemians, local hipsters, and some of the local bourgeoisie. Instead of going through a local Tuscan Menu predictable entrees and appetizers, we found complimentary food all over the place prepared freshly and with fresh ingredients. The intent of the sweet wine bar is of course to provide a sampling of DCOG as well as Super Tuscan wines at a reasonable price and in wonderful supply.

At the sweet wine bar, use we saw relationships end and relationships possibly begin , and we felt very much at home even though we are over a certain age and from a certain country.

“This is one Sweet Wine Bar!”
Reviewed December 16, 2012

If you're looking for authentic, back door Italy, Sweet Wine Bar in Florence is a must. This small restaurant holds only 8 or so tables, but it is worth waiting if you have to. I've visited Swet Wine Bar both times I've been to Florence; fantastic fresh pasta and seafood, great wine, wonderful atmosphere and spectacular staff. Top 3 on my "to do" list for Florence!

“Brilliant wine bar, you must go there ..”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

We were staying locally and we went here twice. Nice staff and the wines are local. Food is included in the price of a glass of wine. it is a place for locals, friendly and with a covered section for smoking outside (if required). Ask for Danielle .. she speaks great English and can advise about wine or food. The bar staff can also help and both speak English if your italian is rusty. A definate must on a Saturday night (really buzzy). Quieter mid week, but still good.

“Like a local”
Reviewed May 21, 2012

We were ready for dinner a bit early so we stopped into Sweet for a glass of wine. One turned into three. Not only was the wine fantastic, the place was lively and the staff very friendly. We may have been the only non-locals there, but didn't feel out of place.

For a true experiance of the people, food and fun of Florence I highly recommend a visit to the Sweet Wine Bar. Ali welcomes you as an old friend, the food is wonderful and even better with a local wine served here.
