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.

Thank Ian A

This is a nice bar for a drink. Great service and hospitality. Excellent snacks for the bar area. Seemingly great menu for appetizers in the evening. Creative drink menu with fun features. We went twice in a few day span. Easy to walk to.

This place was an excellent founding to escape the avalanche of tourists. Very cozy and with delicious food. If your girlfriend likes Spritz, this is the right place. They have a great variety of Sprites' combinations. The classic: Aperol Spritz was excellent!

Thank you Jazzzy-guy! Happy to read that you had a good time having lunch at Soul Kitchen and that you felt a local atmosphere. This is one of our main goal :-) Hope to see you again

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.
