Enjoyed the spritz and well-stocked buffet with surprising quality and variety for 10 euros. No meal required. Great service and relaxed atmosphere. Seemed popular with locals.

One of the BEST places to go for aperitivo in Florence. Great location for a 20s crowd as it sits in the Santa Croce area. Ten euro for a drink and delicious buffet, can’t go wrong!

We had delicious drinks and buffet at Soul Kitchen. For 10 Euros each, you are provided with quite a spread of food, buffet style. Much of it is Mediterranean food but quite a good selection. Go up as often as you like. The bar is...More

Had a great time there for a couple of hours and had a couple of really good cocktails. The aperitivos where good too, especially the wings! We were going back the next night but had a dinner reservation we couldn't change.

Excellent little trattoria in Firenze Friendly service and reasonable price. Go for the vino Casa and tagliatelle in meat sauce. Also a variety of burgers and salads. Nice jazz music in the background. Good value and delicious.

Stopped here for aperitivo - quickly turned into several cocktails. There's something incredibly warm, inviting and familiar about this place that makes it really difficult to leave.

Friendly young crowd Amazing Aperativo all set out in the middle of the room - was fresh all evening and lasted way past 9pm. Great cocktails When we were leaving we were given shots by the barman. Well worth a visit

I had the gourmet burger and it was amazing. Soul Kitchen is also reasonably priced well worth a visit if only for the burger.

Santa Croce
Stop and stare at the beauty and symmetry of the
Basilica of Santa Croce any time day or night.
Unraveling around it are a number of architectural and
artistic masterpieces, from the Synagogue to the
Central National Library. As a hub for young people,
the area gets busy with people who want to have fun: a
continuous flow of tourists and locals become animated
by songs and dances.

Yes.. It begins at 7pm I believe. You buy one drink per person and there is quite a good buffet which ends at 10 included. Very good value!!
