I found this place after a research online and I put it in my list for my travel to Florence. Place was nice, cappuccino was good but my expectations were much higher to be honest.

We tried the pasta, pizza as well as the coffee out there, all of which turned out to be very good. The only turn down for the place is the quality of staff, they are extremely rude and not helpful

Lots of locals visit this restaurant/ buffet and they know when something is good. For 7-8 Euro you choose a plate of freshly home cooked food. Pasta, baked veggies, meats and insalate. On top of that buy a drink and you have a really good...More

Chiaroscuro is right around the corner from the Duomo and was coincidentally right next to our rental flat. They've got great cornettis and make wonderful Italian coffee, apertivi and snacks.

Chiaroscuro is mainly a coffee shop located just a couple of streets away from Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore in Florence. Here you can have a decent and reasonably priced lunch. We ordered Tagliere Salumi (meat platter), Bistecca di Maiale (pork steak with vegetables),...More

I was stupid enough to ask for a jamaica blue mountain melange of expresso and they were kind enough to serve it. It was nothing compared to their regular daily coffee! Best place in Florence to get a coffee, regardless of the type you are...More

Great value: 5 euros for two lovely cappuccini and two brioche alla crema in a really nice place in the centre of Florence. Great service from people who speak English and are attentive. Go there - we did every day.

I have lived in Spain for years and every time I visit Italy I truly enjoy the coffee here. On a recent holiday to Firenze we happened to come upon this cafe, which in our opinion, makes some of the best coffee we have had...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
