Walk past this place, they charge for sitting down, they charge for walking to your table, they charge for politeness and the cost of taking an order is extortionate nevermind the cost of the food and drink.

Horribly expensive.. I almost spit out the 8€ espresso when the waitresses gave me the check. There's also charges on the receipt for stuff we didn't order. Avoid at all costs!

Stopped in for a coffee and a wine, they have a beautiful courtyard area so we sat and ordered. Cappuccino was €4! It's a beautiful courtyard but not worth the price tag.

We dropped in for a drink, hot day, needed a rest, just ordered drinks so didn't ask for a menu - when the bill came I couldn't believe that the cans of Sprite were 6 Euros each!

Don't go here! Horrible quality, the salads were made days earlier it seemed. The milkshake was lukewarm chocolate milk. Overpriced to the extreme. Avoid!!

13 euros for a flat draught cola and a small beer. Don't make the mistake we made due to its convenient location. Buy a beer for €2 from Vini next door and drink by the river.

So wish I had read the reviews before sitting down. €24 for 4 soft drinks - two Sprites and two diet cokes. The bloke should be ashamed of himself.

Nice food but overpriced. Way overpriced on drinks. Look around there are better cafes. Its easy to sit down here but the price comes later.

Euros 73 for 4 paninis,1 melon and ham,4 drinks and a coffee.They have the smallest water bottles in the world. Location is good but really should be shut down. Should have noticed they didn't have any tripadvisor stickers...

Staying in Uffizi

Neighbourhood Profile
Every visitor coming to Florence for the first time will immediately identify with Uffizi. As in past times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can reach the city center, the Florence that everybody dreams of. In just a few steps, visitors can experience the rare beauty of the capital of the Renaissance. walking delighted across Palazzo Vecchio and overlooking Piazza della Signoria, up to the Loggia of the Uffizi where it is possible to fully taste the talent of the best artists who animated Florence over the centuries. When the sun goes down, there’s nothing better than a walk along the river Arno up to the ancient bridge, Ponte Vecchio. It is full of jewels and decorated by the colors captured in postcards.
