We did not eat there, besides the free appetizers, but we drank and were very entertained by the waiters. It is a great little outdoor cafe with great people watching. I recommend it wholeheartedly!

Don't do it. It is an easy location sure but just don't do it. It was almost comical how bad the service was. There were twice as many staff as there were poor souls dinning there but somehow it took forever to take an order...More

Good wine selection, plenty of food on the menu, and gelato! Some previous reviews mentioned slow service but the service was no slower than the other restaurants I visited around Florence. It's definitely worth stopping by.

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
of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the
brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does
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
