Caffè Giacosa information
This small cafe with 1815 pedigree was the inventor of the Negroni cocktail and hub of Anglo-Florentine sophistication during the interwar years. Today it is the hip cafe of local hotshot designer Roberto Cavalli, whose flagship boutique is next door. Giacosa is known for its refreshingly unelevated prices, excellent coffee and hip cafe across the street in Palazzo Strozzi.
Drink-list standouts include the herbal infusions, ginseng cappuccino and Caffè de' Medici aka a shaken espresso topped with whipped cream, granola and chocolate.
