For our last breakfast in Firenze I googled 'best breakfast in Florence' and The Diner came up as an option. The local is hidden on a small street but still quite central. When we arrived the place was empty, which should of made us question...More

Dear Alexa, All of our food is fresh and cooked to order, so I have no way of knowing what you mean by old. The prices for items, including additions, are written in the menu: if you don't agree with the price, don't order it....More

If you're looking for American Style Diner food, and a classic American Style Diner (complete with kitschy decor), then this is the place for you. Lots of food and drink options. The portions are large and the prices fair!

My husband and I came here twice in a row after realizing this is the best American breakfast we've had in Italy. We have visited Florence many times and just recently discovered this gem. The English Breakfast was perfect, with bacon and sausage just like...More

My order didn't come with everything that was specified in the menu, the toilet had no toilet paper or soap, the Wi-Fi didn't work and the poached eggs were well over done.More

Jhol, I'm sorry that you didn't enjoy your experience. I'm not sure what the missing elements were but simply letting us know would have been a much easier fix. The wi-fi works great -- I'm using it right now to answer you. The bathrooms are...More

I've eaten here three times during two trips to Florence. It is a hidden gem (right behind the Bargello Museum). I know other reviewers have said this is like an American Diner--it is, but most customers are Italians--that is when you can tell it is...More

This place is one of the few that serve American style breakfasts. They would never be successful in the USA, but for Florence, it is fairly good. Prices are reasonable and there are variety of typical breakfast items. If you are tired of espresso and...More

It is nice to have a change when you live in Italy so typically on Sundays my family and I love to have brunch. We tried the Diner and the menu looked terrific although the problem is they use the worst of the worst food...More

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
