Great place to chill after a long day of walking. Tea, coffee but food and drinks served as well. I loved the atmosphere and was very happy to be located near by as I was looking for this type of vibe

Truly amazing and quite place in the center, near the river. Books are only in Italian. Perfect you need a beer or coffee break after a long tourist day

Stayed in rooms next door and came in here. What a lovely little gem. Lovely staff, great food and atmosphere. Lots of young people but didn’t feel out of place being somewhat older!

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
