We had a great lunch at this Cafe when we were in Florence. Great selection and good service. You could see a lot of "locals" eating there- always a great sign. Perfect portion sizes!

This is an amazing place in Venezzia. Surrounded by restaurants and attractions a good place for photos. You should be aware of the pickpockets because there's lots of people in the same place and time.
