My wife and I stumbled upon this venue while walking back to our apartment.What got us in was the beautiful classical music we could hear from the street.We went for a look,and were very impressed,so we made a booking for the next night.On our return,there was a lovely French pianist playing who could play anything from jazz to classical.The decor and atmosphere was just perfect,with comfortable sofas,art work hanging on the walls and candle light.To top it off,the owner,an artist himself,came in and started to finish off one of his paintings to the beautiful music.If you want an elegant, classy evening,this it.It is a bit expensive for drinks,but I would say its worth it.

I spent more money here than I had planned to spend when I wandered in, which tell of the venue's excellence. I was intrigued by the music I heard as I passed by outside and upon entering was greeted by a friendly waiter. The drinks were well prepared, the service very fast, but the real highlight of the night was the music - it was great to find a live venue in Florence with such quality, and apparently there is live music here every night until late. The gallery also had many intriguing art pieces. Definitely recommended for anyone who enjoys music.

Good wine, excellent music in a unique location! You can listen to music in an art gallery, watching Vasari's frescoes.

In the heart of Florence, few minutes walking from the Dome, a wonderful location to eat and/or simply enjoy a good drink while listening excellent classical/jazz live music.
Very elegant and comfortable room, it's really an 'isle' for relaxing alone or with friends.

A couple of weeks ago, while walking with some friends down the beautiful road of Via dei Servi, we suddenly heard classical music coming from one of the windows of a renaissance building. We thought it was an organized private party, but when we got closer to the main entrance, a kind and welcoming woman asked us if we where interested in entering the establishment. This place is nothing like the other cocktail places in the city, the entrance is breathtaking with a corridor full of tall arches and as we got closer to the main area the music overwhelmed us. We ordered some nice Chianti wine and found some incredibly comfortable leather chairs to sit in, as two beautiful young girls, soprano and pianist, performed operas areas.
I had a marvelous night, thanks to L'isle de Saint Luis
