Amazing happy hour buffet. Sandwiches, pizza, melon and prosciutto, pasta dishes and more. Drinks are 8€ which is reasonable for a lovely outdoor bar with comfortable seating. Service requires patience but not a big deal.

Perhaps it's not perfectly fair to rate a restaurant by one's expectations based on descriptions in guidebooks, but we were hoping for something much more attractive, much more classic, and much more historically authentic. The décor is not what one would expect for one of...More

Mid afternoon and the crowds were thinning... perfect time to stop for a snack or early dinner. More people were enjoying the “happy hour” drink and buffet... we shared a pizza, which was tasty. Not keen on the mushroom, plain ‘margarhetta”might have been best.

Waited ages for wrong toasted sandwich which finally turned up cold . Long wait at the same time for small expresso !!! There was few people there and others were served before us ! Lovely surroundings.

Good experience, appetiser for two people 20€, with some food included. Drinks and sandwiches/snacks worth their price. For foreign tourists: this is an historical cultural coffee. In the XIX century some Italian literates met there. 4 stars

I found Giubbe Rosse to be a dishonest tourist trap. In short, the price I was told at the door was different to the price when I asked for the bill. I cannot recommend this restaurant to anyone. I was searching for a place to...More

Went for cocktails and we were very disappointed. Drinks are expensive but you are paying for the location. No chips or snacks offered with the drinks, as other establishments offer. Service is painfully slow. The staff was very pushy trying to get us to eat...More

Thank you very much for your review! really glad about what you wrote, about prices, yes we know but the square has high costs for us and we have to adapt the prices. Thanks again

I went to this restaurant on New Years eve. 35% mark up was automatically added, which I suppose is normal for this particular night. However, it was obvious that a lot of people walked away, especially if they had children with them and tables were...More

Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by
an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city.
The historic center is characterized by the immensity
of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the
brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does
not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni
Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is
enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city
