it's a well run touristy pub and haven for a Brit looking for a pint amongst the wine bars and outside is a perfect spot for people watching. however it is definitely more of a student bar and if you're over 25 you'll probably want to avoid it of an evening to bypass hyperactive late teens still learning to handle their drink but it remains a nice spot for an afternoon/ early evening drink...then you'll want to move on to the Fiddlers elbow for a more considered session over on Piazza di Santa Maria Novella.

This place is close to my apartment. It's always full of tourists and I've met quite a few Americans. Wish they had better beers!

This is definitely the go-to spot for study abroad students. Always packed, and the walls and ceilings are filled with tshirts/flags given by study abroad students over the years. The drinks are good and pretty affordable--a good place to start out the night!
