Circolo Rondinella is a great place to drink a beer or a simple cocktail while enjoying the shade of the trees and the sunset. It is a very local “club” and you need a membership card to enter. It is only €3 and valid for a full year. Inside you find the bar and you can feel like time’s been stuck to the seventies. I do not suggest ordering anything more elaborate than a negroni because behind the counter you will not find a mixologist. Even the wine has to be avoided in my opinion. The prices are very reasonable and a beer is 3€.
In summertime, the garden is also used as restaurant and is possible to eat very simple traditional dishes here. Do not expect a long menu, only a couple of main courses or pasta are served. It’s a very popular spot among the locals when the football matches of the local team Fiorentina are shown on a big screen. Absolutely do NOT go there in a Juventus shirt (most hated team for Fiorentina supporters).
