Dating back to 1773, this indoor and outdoor café is centrally located on a large busy square, making it a perfect spot to drink, have a bite to eat and do some people-watching.

I read the majority of the reviews. Decided to try it out. I can see what they mean by arrogance and poor service, BUT the food overrides it. We had the Capri Salad, and the Romagna pizza. Was amazing. Did not disappoint. Great stop during...More

We loved Paszkowski next door, so just thought we would come here for breakfast as it looked similar. There weren't as many cake choices but enough to be happy with. Sadly the cappuccinos served were luke warm which was a shame, as we waited so...More

This place introduced me to iced cappuccinos. You have to get one!! Obviously we ordered some pastries on the side too. It is pricey (10 just for the pastries) but it is a beautiful place to sit for a break from sightseeing

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

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
