The local is very nice and the aperitive is accompanied to a good sound by a dj. With the drinks you can eat a lot of food but you need a loan to pay the bill.More

Came upon this bar by complete accident and am so pleased we did. We stopped for drinks and the November evening was so mild, we could sit outside without having big coats on. Next time we're in Florence, we're heading here!

masterpieces like Bianca Cappello House, Fontana dello
Sprone and San Frediano in Cestello and Santa Maria
