Magnificent hot chocolate! The addition of chilli and cream makes it a standout winner for best chocolate ever.

This place is a fun place to visit late at night - specially if you have been drinking beforehand. Huge mugs of thick chocolate - quite a fun stop off. Chocolate & wine available!

This place may be good for chocolate - I've not tried - but definitely not for aperitivi. We had 2 glasses of average wine and a few average nibbles. Cost was 16 euros. The large TV screen with videos of 1980s pop songs only made...More

Hands down the best chocolate bar in town, impressive selection, chilled atmosphere, great tasting courses. Don't have much more to say, as a local we tend to come here in the winter to spend a nice evening with friends! Totally recommended.

It's great. They are open late - 1am and serve a large variety of hot and cold chocolate drinks of various strengths. We had the 50% cocoa hot chocolate with cream. The cream was really needed as the chocolate is so strong, sweet and rich....More

Cozy cafe on a side street near the Piazza del Carmine. Extensive cocktail menu and they make a terrific Negroni. Comfortable seating makes this a relaxing place to get out of the hustle and bustle and recharge before dinner.

Had a short "refuelling " stop here. They have an extensive tea collection and some very interesting varieties of hot choclate. Prices are typical for the area and if you ask nicely they will give you the wifi password

Santo Spirito / San Frediano
A warm evening with a cocktail in your hand and great
company is the ideal way to experience Piazza Santo
Spirito; the area is busiest at sunset for happy hour.
Visitors cannot hide their astonishment sitting on the
staircase under the Basilica of Santo Spirito, and
they cannot help but stare at the architectural
masterpieces like Bianca Cappello House, Fontana dello
Sprone and San Frediano in Cestello and Santa Maria
