This three story bar is located on top of Hotel Calimala, and has one of the most charming outdoor garden patios in Florence, where vines and roses decorate the railings and seating areas.

There’s a full view of the Duomo from Angel Roofbar’s outdoor bar and patio, and guests are surrounded on all sides by even more Florentine terracotta and marble architecture. The menu offer Italian specialties like pasta with clams and mussels, beef carpaccio, and caprese salad.

On TripAdvisor, people who have been there before praise the food and say the ambience is perfect for a fancy night out in Florence, calling it romantic and magical – especially for couples. However, some people weren’t impressed with the service. One thing that everyone who goes here has in common is that they all love the view.

However, if you’re looking to sip Italy’s signature drink in a stylish atmosphere, the garden patio is where you want to be. When it’s not closed for a wedding party, the Angel Roofbar patio is a chic spot where you can go not just to relax but to feel a glamorous Italian.

The design of the Angel Roofbar patio makes it feel like a secret garden, with the overhanging vines, and would be an especially pretty place to book a table in the summertime. Just be sure that you dress up – this isn’t a casual spot. If you want to mingle with the rest of the stylish Italians, you need to look like one.
