“Stunning view of the Duomo”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

We are 55-days into our 80-day journey to Paris, Aix-en-Provence, Rome, Florence, and then back to Paris. Our lunch at La Terrazza today was one of the most atmospheric meals we've enjoyed during the entire trip. The food was very good, the service excellent, the prices reasonable, and we could have almost reached out and touched the Duomo!

Ignore the negative reviews about this terrace in the sky.

“Meh, not such a great view.”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

We ran up to have a bite and watch the sunset. It was very small, and the view was not a sweeping view of Florence that I had hoped for. We didn't stay.

“It’s a department store café.”
Reviewed 6 January 2014

It’s a department store café. The main café is on the top floor of the store. They a have a small terrace up on the roof with a great view overlooking the Piazza below and the town beyond

Standard café fare, with polite and friendly service.

Only issues are

-Service up on the terrace is unhurried, but hey, if you want a coffee in a hurry, then perhaps you are in the wrong town. There are plenty of places to grab an espresso pronto.

-It’s not particularly cheap, but you are in a rooftop café overlooking a world heritage town centre in Italy, so what do you expect?

-And pigeons, or at rather the dorks who insist on feeding or leaving food for them.

“Power of suggestion?”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

Reading the majority of the reviews below I'm starting to think that I wasn't in the same place..

It's a small terrace, re-arranged with cheap, plastic garden furniture. It's kind of not very well managed with dirty napkins on the floor, a very slow service and sky-high prices. The view is not as pretty as you would expect it either: on one side you can see only part of the cathedral and on the other it's a repetition of antennas and satellite dishes..
Really not worth it.

“Worth searching out”
Reviewed 9 November 2013

Must be one of the hottest locations in town, but even from the top floor of La Rinascente Department Store, it is not that well signposted. Perhaps that's a blessing because, on an overcast November, the tables on the roof-top terrace were full and people were jostling for a camera angle on the looming masterpiece that is the dome of the Duomo.

Despite the lunch-time heave, the waiters were cheerful and accommodating, whilst the coffees were only slightly over-priced. I had a kicking doppio and a platter of breads with dips to die for. The spinach and mozzarella sandwich went down especially well with one of our party.
