This place is a lovely drinking spot. The waiter/owner was lovely and the locals were a great help in helping us choose a good wine. Would visit again!

We went here for wine and appetizers and this place is perfect for that. The food is of great quality and the wines are nice. They have a wide variety of food and wine so something that suits anybody.

I wouldn't say they had the biggest selection of wines to taste but I think that makes things easier. Wonderful atmosphere, especially on a summers night where people are standing outside with a glass. Serve free mini bruschettas as well with your wine. Would definitely...More

Santo Spirito / San Frediano
A warm evening with a cocktail in your hand and great
company is the ideal way to experience Piazza Santo
Spirito; the area is busiest at sunset for happy hour.
Visitors cannot hide their astonishment sitting on the
staircase under the Basilica of Santo Spirito, and
they cannot help but stare at the architectural
masterpieces like Bianca Cappello House, Fontana dello
Sprone and San Frediano in Cestello and Santa Maria
