Caffe Gilli is special because give lying, arrogant, expensive awful services to customers. Yesterday I went this cafe with my friends on 10: 45 pm. Before entering, we asked assistant what time will be closed. And she said 11:30 pm, we embarrassed that time was different with online( in google map, is 00:00, in TripAdvisor, is 1:00am). But we thought... More

This centrally located coffee shop and restaurant has a small but tasty dinner menu. Highly recommended is the penne-and-pesto entree, big enough to share. And a item in the salad column that I've never seen in the States: Tender octopus, warm potatoes and ripe olives formed into a small loaf. We loved it.

Pastries are wonderful. Window display is worth a look. Bought a cake on Christmas Eve and decided to get a cafe. All of the tables were vacant and the store was not busy because it was Christmas Eve, but the waiter yelled that we could not sit down. Really -- we know the rules, but how about a little Christmas... More

Gilli is definitely a stop to do in Florence: has been here for so many years and the inside is still "original". The coffee and pastries are to die for....it is true is not cheap but can you put a price on pleasure?

This is the only place in Florence where the service was disappointing. In fact the only place we were made to feel like tourists and therefore, second rate. Just ordered a coffee and a water and we had one millefeuille. We ordered a custard one, got a cream one. Waitress just dumped it and rushed off. We were too weary... More

The glass house extension is a great location for people watching in one of Italy's most fashion-concious cities. Piazza della Repubblica is beautiful but brace yourself for the bill though ... 6 euro for a double espresso!

Staying in Duomo

Neighbourhood Profile
Duomo
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 as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
