During a hot day of seeing the sites it was a great place to stop for some refreshments. Nice vibe, super location, lots of travelers with stories and good music. Just what we needed.

Always good service, fun atmosphere, and great selection of beverages. Right on the edge of the Piazza Santa Maria Novella, this location cannot be beat!

We were staying next door to fiddlers elbow, drinks were priced reasonable, and it had a good vibe either inside or outside on the terrace seating area.

Whilst I cannot comment re the food, this was a fantastic place to have a drink. Lovely location watching the world go by. Service was excellent and the Guinness top notch. Thanks for putting up with the Aussies more than once.

The bar offers nice outdoor seats looking at the Piazza de Santa Maria Novella. The staff at the bar carries the Irish passion. There are quite a nice choice of Irish beers here. The ambience is good.

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
