Went here today for first time and was overwhelmed with choices of beautiful and very delicious pastry. I had a sandwich with focaccia and ham that was the best GF sandwich I have had in 15 years. Looking forward to trying the apple strudel and croissant that I bought. Shop is clean and people were friendly.
Lovely gluten free pastry and lots of lunch options!
The best buttery flaky croissants! What a gem for a gf individual. Not too expensive either. Loved their French bread loaf too!!!
Tons of options! Including lactose free and dairy free. Sadly, the bread was a little dry - but it was great to enjoy a gf panini while my boyfriend had one from down the street!
Amazing pastries and reasonable prices. It's a must viait for GF trip to Florence. Wide selection of fresh pasta and takeaway sandwiches as well
Absolutely amazing! The croissants are to die for! I’ve been craving one so bad ever since being in Europe and I’m so happy to have been able to get some. So sad that I don’t live here! Do not pass up these croissants!!!
Delicious baked goods! Highly recommend
They have great stuff. Apple strudel, croissants, donuts, turnovers, cream puffs! Everything was delicious. Can’t wait to come back to Florence! Staff not so friendly though
Absolutely FANTASTIC. My wife has celiac with gluten, soy, and dairy allergies. We loved everything we ate - they have both savory and sweet. Dedicated shop and had breakfast here every day we were in Florence.
The best gluten free pastries I have ever had. I’ve waited years to find a flaky apple pastry gluten free (my favorite before I was diagnosed), and I finally got it! Cannot day enough good things, do yourself a favor and make a stop here. Close to many of the tourist places, easy to get to. Bought a dozen treats to take with us, that’s how good it is!
So nice to find, full of treats. We had an eclair and an apple turnover yum! I have 2 crescent rolls packed in my carryon for the long flight home. We grabbed a pizza slice and a spinach tort for a quick lunch. It was so nice to not have to try to explain gluten free in my poor Italian as everything is gluten free!
This place is amazing! We came 2x/day during our trip to Florence. Though we had some easy favorites (focaccia, turnovers, croissants & apple strudel) absolutely everything was delicious and amazing and my non-gf boyfriend claimed it was even better than the tart he got at a nearby bakery. Seriously amazing. You will not be disappointed!
Yummy fluffy fruit filled pastries and breads and cookies (and focaccia style slices of pizza to go). The fruit filled pastries tasted as close to puff pastry as we have ever had. The crispy chocolate dipped cookies in containers were deliciously light. We only wished we could smuggle some back home to the U.S.!
My absolute favorite place to grab croissants, bread, cookies and cake!! So delicious and hard to believe that everything is gluten free.
Starbene was a GF dream come true. I was able to try multiple pastries I'd never been able to eat before and was always pleasantly surprised. This is not your traditional "gluten-free and you can tell..." pastry. You'd never know it was GF if it wasn't advertised everywhere! Go - and then go back.
This is gluten free heaven!!! It’s amazing highly recommend! Went there twice!!! Go around 2pm if you want a huge selection, things are sold out around 5-6
Excellent!! A GF dream come true! I was overwhelmed by the many options to choose from including savory small pizzas and meat pastries to many delicious sweet treats. I purchased many items including an apple pastry that was unbelievable! Flaky, moist and just tasty right amount of cinnamon apple filling. Make this a spot to frequent when in Florence!
Yes! Finally amazing parties. Oh my the food was legit and I tried so many things. Love it. Definitely eating there before I leave tomorrow. Had the apple strudel, blackberry cheesecake and a piece of pizza. Yes please.
OMG - the pastry - I was like a kid in a toy shop being told I could have whatever I wanted! 💕 S
Fantastic. Savory and sweet options!
Wow! My daughter was overwhelmed by the choice and lots dairy free too. Well done this business! Highly recommended
We ate here a few times while in Florence. The whole place is GF and they have lots of little options. They have flaky pastry and thicker crust little pizzas. It was so good! I wish there was one in the states.
THE best GF baked goods !! Try the apple strudel or the chocolate croissant, they are amazing ! And extremely reasonably priced !!
Wow. If you're Celiac and have given up on eating pastry that tastes and feels and pleases like pastry, GO TO STARBENE!!! Super friendly and pleasant staff, just know some basic Italian, please, or have Google Translate on hand.
Amazing! Best gluten free pizza ever and they have so many GF options. I'll be back every day I'm in Florence
pretty pricey, but for a gluten free treat, it's worth it!
This is the most wonderful gf place I've ever been to!! The gf pizza was so good and delicious, so were the pastries! It was difficult choosing just one item as all the food looked so good! I would honestly come back all the way to Florence just to come here. A must do stop for gf people
Incredible place! The excitement of going into a bakery as a coeliac and actually being able to have EVERYTHING is a joy beyond words. Lovely ladies with a fabulous range of bakery food and GF products for purchase.
I was overwhelmed by all the gluten free in this place! So many bakery items I've never seen be gluten free! I'll be posting lots of pics for people to see what I got!
OMG, there is no better bakery! We are going back to Florence from The States just for this bakery (I wish). The croissants with the cream inside are absolutely to die for. The croissants are crispy, flaky, fresh, and unique, so much better than the typical gluten-free pastry. My daughter has celiac and she has not been to a bakery like this where she could eat cakes, tarts Etc. and everything was of such top-quality. Staff are amazingly nice too… Wish there were more of these gf bakeries in the world!!
It has everything - fresh panini, pizza, pastries, boxes of pasta, beer, you name it! Entirely gluten free store!
