This is an excellent place to sit and have a meal or drink and enjoy the activities in the piazza. A little pricey compared to others but not excessively so. Found the staff to be very friendly and service was speedy. Well worth a visit.

We enjoyed a coffee here one morning and relaxed on the very comfortable chairs facing the square and the sun. Could have sat there all day. Price very reasonable considering the beautiful location and service.

The lady who runs the register is extremely rude! If it weren't for tourists she wouldn't have a job! She acts like the customers are her servants. Surprised she is still allowed to work there! She is an older lady

Came here with friends they have a really nice seating around the edges where you can leave ok out onto the square and listen to the night buskers. The staff are friendly And very pleasant.

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
