Great space very traditional and cozy in the square but the tiramisu in a bowl was a total joke, instead of coming to the table like a sliced cake, ridiculous service. Just Ridiculous, Bad experience. They need to learn how to please the clients. Because...More

The place is famous for its tiramisu but I didn't feel anything special or unique. It was very plain and normal. The espresso was good though. The staff was not rude but not kind or polite either. They all looked unhappy and unsatisfied which made...More

It is not just to have a sip of coffe and bisquits. It gives the feeling of luxury of fabulous Florence. It is like a museum of previous centuries arhitecture, decoration, utensils, etc.

It’s a beautiful place with lots of fancy pastry. Many local people visited there and had coffee at the bar. But the price is not so friendly, especially if you want to have a seat.

Got two packages of biscottis, a dark chocolate cake and a piece of chocolate panforte. Everything was delicious and thr staff was really helpful (as my italian is not very good).

The atmosphere was great. Polite and elegant staff. The prices are extremely high. We paid 3,5€ a small bottle of water, 10€ for a small cheesecake(nothing to do with real cheesecake - do not try it) and 10€ for a sparkling wine. Overestimated.

Nice place, clean, nothing exceptional about it. But they will scam you just to get a few euro's more. Traveling solo and stopped by to get a drink. Since I had learned my lesson, the first thing I asked if there was a cover. Nope,...More

Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by
an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city.
The historic center is characterized by the immensity
of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the
brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does
not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni
Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is
enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city
