“Worst meal in Italy with good views”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

It was December 25th and not much was open in Piazzale Michaelangelo so we settled for this one as we wanted to enjoy the view and people watch. We ordered 1 plate of antipasti and two main courses. The waiter came back with 2 plates of antipasti and when I tried to get his attention he just ignored me and went off. I was persistent and got it fixed.The food was horrible and I had to fix it with olive oil and salt and pepper to made it edible! It was our worst meal in Italy . Overrated and bad service too.

“A must”
Reviewed September 23, 2012 via mobile

Brilliant bar in a fantastic location
A)If you want to spend a hour or so watching the world in a beautiful place, grab a table and chill
B)Or if you want to enjoy appertivo, there is no better place. The bar staff and the snacks are great
Tips;
A) drinks are expensive individually at the table, however for Euro26 you take get a good bottle of wine and linger
B) For those we strong constitutions the Negroni cocktail is not to be missed (buyer beware they are very strong), for those not wanting blurred vision, the Aperol Spritz are divine. For those of a sensible disposition, coffee or ice cream are great also

A trip to Bar Perseo is a must

Great selection and high quality gelato! The fresh fruit cups were a welcome treat after two weeks of restaurant food!

“Most. Amazing. Gelato. Ever.”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

We spent two weeks sampling gelato in Italy and this was far and away the best that we had. So freaking delicious. Wow.

“Bellini in the sun”
Reviewed July 4, 2012

We started off with a capuccino each before checking out the Uffizzi. Needed something stronger after the Uffizzi, so grabbed a seat in the square and had my first every Bellini - hand squeezed peach juice with prosecco - delicious. Little plate of nibbles. Our waiter is funny and really helpful - going so far as to organise a top up on my mobile phone at a little tabac nearby. It was the perfect place to while away an hour, watching people and sipping our drinks. We finished off with the best gelati I have ever eaten. A bit pricey to sit in the square, but we didn't mind at all.
