We stopped here for a few glasses of house wine after dinner. The service was excellent and the wine was tasty and cheap.

Full of locals & priced accordingly e.g. a panini 3 euros. Well worth seeking out, food was good and has an unusual interior. Wish I 'd tried one of their salads!

This was exactly what we were looking for: speedy service, decent cup of coffee and fresh croissants. The cafe is dark and cool, a nice break from the summer heat. Unless they bathe us incorrectly, it was €10 for 5 coffees and 3 croissants!

They took our order and then forgot about us. When we reminded them, they were surly. The food, when it finally came, was mediocre. A napkin or serviette would have been appreciated.

This was our neighbourhood cafe, and once we'd tried it on the first morning, we just kept on coming back. Great ambience, slightly grungy, retro music, retro TV channels, cool and friendly staff and most important of all - good coffee. Busy little place with...More

Santa Maria Novella
Santa Maria Novella train station welcomes the
majority of the people arriving in Florence, which
might explain the hectic pace. Commuters and tourists
come across the constant hustle and bustle of the
station before exiting, taking a few steps and
stopping amazed in Piazza di Santa Maria Novella. It
is impossible not to admire the the square, housing
one of the most charming basilicas in Florence. The
