The area
Address
Neighbourhood: 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.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Love this place! LGBT friendly and a great place to meet likeminded tourists. The bar opens late so don’t be discouraged if you can’t find it or don’t see it at first:)

I was on vacation visiting from Houston Texas and stumbled upon 2 lesbians that recommended I go to this bar.It was so beautiful and the staff was incredibly friendly and inviting. They had great music playing and the drinks were not bad at all.

i was there many (20) times. The place is always closed. Even when the website says it is open it is not. I was there almost every month of the year (i live close to Florence).

The bartender was amazing. He was extremely nice and attentive. The bar was not crowded he made himself busy and allowed time for an English conversation which I appreciated.

I visited this place twice, but only a few people were in. The bartender was friendly and drinks were good, I stayed there for less than an hour

We visited Florence for a few nights on vacation and decided to try a local gay bar.
We arrived kind of early around 20:00.
Bartender spoke excellent English and the drinks were strong and nice.
It gets busier later in the night but we were exhausted from our sightseeing.
I recommend Piccolo for some nice drinks

We stopped in for a drink at 20:00. It was empty. The bar tender was super nice, spoke great English and said the place fills up around 23:00. But only with men. He is not sure where the women go. We had fun.

A nice place to have the first beers of the night. When I was there there were a few people, it was not crowded. I stayed for an hour or so and left because nothing was happening. No dancing, just a few groups talking with their friends. I didn't feel a very welcoming attitude there. Nice prices though

If you have a non-smoking sign in your establishment, the entire bar shouldn't be smoking so much that it's hard to breathe.
