Servicde is excellent with a friendly, glad-you-are-here feel. This is not a chain with a corporate parent and I think it shows. They have a good selection of food and beverage and a great atmosphere. While they serve wine it is more of a coffee...More

This little place in the middle of Florence was a true find. They have a variety of wines that you can taste or you can just go for a glass of wine. The staff were delightful. The athmosphere is cozy and inviting.
