Caffè degli Artigiani

The bar that you do not expect a stone's throw from Ponte Vecchio

The best thing you can do in Oltrarno is wander between big and small roads, discovering secret gems from time to time, coming as apparitions and immediately striking a careful eye. For example, if you were walking from Piazza dei Pitti to the Ponte di Santa Trinità (or from Santo Spirito to Ponte Vecchio), you might come across Piazza della Passera where you would see the place we want to talk about: Caffè degli Artigiani.

The restaurant has a long history. It has been located at the corner of the square since 1945. Originally, it was very popular among the many craftsmen who worked in the area, but then its fame spread to the rest of the Florentines, who have made it one of their own favorite places. This is also due to the fact that the Caffè is far from the tracks usually beaten by tourists.

The interiors fully reflect the spirit of the area, simple and true, a gathering place where the main attraction is the sympathy and warmth of the owners, as well as the quality of the dishes offered. The whole spirit of familiarity of the Caffè is clearly perceived from the wall covered with photographs of friends and customers, which dominates the corner entrance.

Caffè degli Arigiani is perfect for a quick and simple lunch, a piadina or a salad. There is also a daily menu that can be found on the bar’s bulletin board, just outside the door. Among the savory dishes, their strength are the crostoni, while among the desserts, the artisanal gelato deserves the first place.

If you are in the streets of Oltrarno and stumble upon Piazza della Passera, you know where to make a quick stop before conintuing your visit. You will experience a Florence far from the stereotypes, in which the truth can be experienced firsthand.

We can't. That's why every week we share the best experiences florence has to offer.
