Located in the peaceful San Niccolo district of Florence, a less touristy area of Florence, very close to the base of the stairs that lead to the famous Piazzale Michelangelo with its fantastic views of Florence, BevoVino makes it the perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine and enjoy authentic Florentine life, music and wine. 

BevoVino, is not only a great, warm and inviting place to unwind but also to sip some great wines, listen to some soulful live local musicians and satisfy your hunger with a wide variety of local rustic favourites, what more could you ask for in a local bistro?  This is the kind of place you would take your friends to if THEY were from out of town visiting Florence and you were a local. 

There's a wide variety of music played by local musicians here on a nightly basis, from classical Tango sonatas to Tolonius Monk Jazz ensembles, and rock favourites, so the atmosphere is variable but always fun and always lively.

If I had to pick a genre or two to describe this establishment, I would say it is chic-bohemian with a splash of sophistication. It's one of the few places in Florence where you can listen to live music free of charge and for music enthusiasts and artists alike, this place is sure to be a favourite.

The tapas menu features something for everyone.  Of course you can find the usual suspects, meats and cheeses, but the owner, Claudio, is constantly changing the menu to ensure that his menu reflects not only the season but also food which pairs well with his wines, after all, this is an enoteca bar.

First, sit down and have a refreshing glass of bubbly Prosecco and a cheese plate and take a load off.  Now that your thirst is quenched, acquaint yourself with the extensive wine list and absorb some of the eclectic charm BevoVino offers.  You probably won’t find anything else like it in Florence.

While you are enjoying your primi piatti (first plate in the plural), take in some live local talent.  The shows usually start around 8pm and last until you go home.  Showcasing live local entertainment is something Claudio prides himself on.  The tradition of supporting live local artists has been the cornerstone of San Niccolo for decades and the Enoteca BevoVino continues to uphold this tradition and support Florentine musicians and artists.  The performances are in both English and Italian so you get the both worlds when you come sip, eat and listen.

With it’s tables close together, the layout of the BevoVino lends itself perfectly to mingling with the locals and meeting new and old friends.  Don’t be shy to ask the people at the table next to you what there is to do in Florence.  The Florentines who frequent the BevoVino are a kind and generous people and always willing to give some friendly advise and suggestions of what to do when you are planning your next outing.

The enchanting façade of the BevoVino reflects exactly what you expect to find inside, warmth, friendliness and intimacy.  If you find yourself in the area, swing by the BevoVino, you won’t be disappointed.
