This place has been a blessing. Imagine a Starbucks without the "globalization factor": the architecture is unique; the dishes (at lunch and dinner it becomes a restaurant) are made with 100% high quality italian food (not the typical place for tourists, in fact i'm from Rome and i appreciated it); you can just sit and chill with wifi and excellent...

The La Cocotte looks pretty "rough" on the outside but it is definitely worth a visit if you are around the Piazza Indipendenza. Had some excellent Tuscan soups and risotto and caprese salad and lasagna. Homemade sweets are excellent also. Definitely worth the visit

Visited this cafe on two consecutive mornings earlier this month without checking it out on first TripAdvisor (it's obviously frequented by many tourists). And I didn't regret it for even a second: the vanilla-filled croissants were marvelous and so was the English breakfast: simple and and tasty. To top it all the young waitress who served us on both visits... More

I have been to this restaurant 5 times already, the atmosphere is nice and the deserts are super delicious, tiramisù and coconut cheesecake is highly recommended! Отличное кафе- ресторан/ десерты очень вкусные. Особенно понравились фисташковый и кокосовый чизкейки

Stopped by for a quick lunch today. The food was fine but the staff were quite unfriendly. I got the impression that the waiter did not speak much English, which wasn't a problem as I always like to try and be polite and use the local language. Despite speaking a few phrases in Italian, the waiter still seemed quite abrupt.... More

It was rather weird that we could not get a decent espresso in all the cafes we tried. Maybe we waited too much from Florence. Nevertheless, this one is really good and has also good snacks. Not cheap but OK.
