Overpriced, tourist trap, not worth the visit.

This place is clearly trading on it's past reputation and sadly resting on it's laurels. Expect to... read more

We should have known based on location it would not be a great experience. After touring Florence for a couple of hours we decided to take a break. It took almost 20 mins to even get acknowledged by a server after being seated. We were...More

Loved sitting here in the evening sipping on a cocktail watching the world wander by. Great ambience but definitely a bit pricey. Worth one though.

This place is clearly trading on it's past reputation and sadly resting on it's laurels. Expect to pay over the odds because of the location in the Piazza della Repubblica, but be aware, they are charging the same inflated price for both alcoholic and non-alcoholic...More

Its the best that Florence has to offer. Very nice pastries and drinks. But over priced to the top. You pay not for the quality of food and drinks but for the location and style. For posh people who like to see and be seen.

This place is famous, it has an historic relevance. Long story short: they do not need you and you are no-one compared to all the really famous people who had a drink here. Hence, do not expect to be treated like an emperor/empress just because...More

Very rude, overpriced, very slow we’ll actually - no service at all unless you hail them down! We saw two couples leave and a lot of people complaining whilst we were there for the bad service. Don’t waste your time....

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
