We came here spontaneously and Mauro was really helpful to prepare and serve the best sandviches with a strong patient since we were a bit demanding. Sandwiches, salads and espresso were really good. Worth to stop by and try!

The way from our hostel to the Duomo passed next to this caffeteria, so we started our long sightseeing day and I can tell, it was the best decision! Situated in front of a university building, so it seemed like popular among students, but still we found place to sit down, drink our cappuccino (which was rather caffelatte, but good... More

Everyone is super friendly and accomodating. Their lunch specials are a steal and super tasty, from €5-6 for pasta or a sandwich, coffee and water. We added a couple of little pastries for ~€1 each. The owners always have great recommendations and they make the best coffee! They really make the atmosphere really welcoming.

We were in Florence for a week, and by the end of our time there, we could not not start the day here. My sons, daughters, wife, and I loved the coffee here; the pastries were tasty, and the service was great. We drank cappuccinos, espressos, & double espressos. To put this in perspective, we tried probably six or seven... More

I am a student studying in Florence and I spend every morning at Caffe Rosano. The coffee is absolutely incredible (especially the cappuccinos). I have tried most of the pastries and sandwiches and I have never had a meal there that tasted anything short of amazing. A small cafe with a very friendly owner with great tasting coffee and food,... More

We were staying right across from the cafe and stopped in whenever possible. They had an amazing coffee and a large one at that. It is hard to find a place in Italy with large coffee. They had great sandwiches for breakfast if you don't want the typical pastry. They are super friendly there too.

We had two cappuccinos and sandwiches here, they were freshly made and tasted delicious, the sandwich was cheese with sun dried tomatoes and potatoes and pesto. The owner Mauro is such a nice and kind person, he gave us two complimentary drinks and was keen on making us feel welcome esp that we didn't understand the Italian menu. I recommend... More
