Piazza Santo Spirito, 4r, 50125 Firenze FI, Italy

Cabiria is an Oltrarno classic with a terrace on Piazza Santo Spirito that is often packed. Once a grungy pre-club haunt, it’s quite sophisticated these days with moody dark walls and atmospheric lighting. The cocktails are good (although the wine selection isn’t, frankly) and there is a great buffet laid on after 7pm with pastas, roast meats, salads and veggies. DJ sets and the occasional live music turn complete the picture.
