First off, let me address many of these “poor” reviews of Gran Caffe San Marco. After reading many of them, all can be disregarded. People were complaining about tax and gratuity added to their bills after sitting down to eat. Gratuity is added to bills...More

We wanted a drink and a slab of pizza. The pizza slices were very cold despite being ‘warmed up’. Service was very casual. What a pity we went here for even a quick lunch. Never again.

Stopped at Gran Caffe San Marco after a morning at the galleries. Our coffee came promptly and was flavorful and hot. A few people in our group also got some pastries which looked delicious.

Do not go there! I went there with my husband to have breakfast, the slice of apple pie was marked 1.20€ and the capuccino 1.75€ (5.90€). We ordered two of each and sat down to eat. We were completely taken by surprise when the waitress...More

San Marco
The pleasant atmosphere of this residential area, a
stone’s throw away from the Duomo of Florence,
surprises everyone. A continuous flow of backpacking
students provides the tranquil surroundings for the
elderly residents who sit in Piazza San Marco to read
the daily newspaper. Home to several universities,
including the Academy of Fine Arts, San Marco is one
of the most vibrant cultural centers in the city. A
