Best pub/ “snack “ place in the heart of Florence. I literally love their hotdog, perfect place to watch the match and have a beer with friends. Best location ever 1 min walk from ponte vecchio Top service, lovely people!

With several brews on tap, local wines, and a laid back atmosphere, this is the place to take a break, cool down and refresh. And, prices are very reasonable.

Lovely place for a couple of beers and a sit and a chat. Football was on every night when we went there (that's not why we went though) but it was never obtrusive and we were always able to find a table and get served...More

Good casual bar menu. The have what you'd buy at the grocery to eat while you'd watch the game. Nothing fancy, but simple, good, and just right. Owners / employees are professional and know why they're here - to feed the soccer fans! Locals know...More

Odd to see people complain about prices. Compared to other bars in similar areas in florence, this place is very reasonable. We visited two nights and staff were lovely both times. Recommend.

Decent little back street bar. No air con but nice little breeze, standard euro prices but the wine and beers are OK...good for a stop when the afternoon heat kicks in.

Find a different place to drink. Grey Goose and Tonic for €12? If you enjoy getting ripped off, the friendly staff here will take care of it professionally.

This is a great place to stop for a beer or three. They have games, good music, and a friendly environment. I met several friendly locals here. They also have a great selection of wine and beer.

Ok, this bar does not have air conditioning, and the bar tender was rude. He could have cared less if we were there or not. The bathroom wasn't working either. Not going back.

After dinner one evening we were walking Florence and stumbled upon this great pub to watch one of the Euro tournament games. Great Irish/English pub to enjoy a beer and a football game.
