  • I'm from South Korea and visited Michelangelo Florentine Leather in Feb, 2018. And this place, was the only one that attracted me. Designs were simple but still appealing, and the quality of leather I could tell it's good. The thing I liked the best is Mr. Michelangelo's pride and confidence about his products. Although I couldn't buy anything cuz I wasn't planning to spend extra money at that moment, he served me very nicely. Highly recommend this place!
  • I went to Michelangelo's shop and he was sweeping in front of his shop. He immediately came.into the shop and rendered his assistance. I was very impressed with the range of leather jackets and leather goods in his shop. The jackets are very soft and comfortable to wear and it made me feel as if my jacket is of inferior material. His leather goods are of very good workmanship and is of classic designs. I ended up getting a men's leather jacket, 2 belts, 1 men's money clip wallet and a purse. Price is reasonable with the quality of leather you are getting. If you are at his shop shopping for a leather jacket, let him recommend you the design and size as he knows which one fits you well. He may not want to sell you if it does not look nice on you as he wants you to look good in his jacket and loves it. This is a place to go to if you are seriously looking for a good quality leather jacket at a reasonable price. Some says that he is very touchy but if you see Italians talking to each other in a friendly way, they tend to touch each other. He treats you like his friends and need to ensure that the fitting is good. If you are uncomfortable about it, you can let him know. Look beyond that and you will get yourself a nice leather jacket.
  • Shopped at Michelangelo's store today and he has some beautiful leather products!! I bought 2 purses and my husband a briefcase and wallet for our son. He spent a lot of time with us and made sure everything fit and looked great, no pressure just helpful. So hot here right now he even turned the air conditioning up higher to make us comfortable. I can't wait to get my bags back to Canada and put them to good use for years and years to come. Thank you for the wonderful service and beautiful leather goods you make. We hope you make it out for a Vespa tour and I look forward to getting that little black purse, but in brown shipped to Canada when you make one ✈️😀 Thank you from Wanda and Roger.
  • Great experience. Great products. Michelangelo helped me to select a better fitting belt and gave modest discounts on it in combination with a purse for my wife. He then customized the belt for me and talked me through the process. He then packed them and gave pointers on maintaining the leather. Finally he gave us some local insights. He turned a simple purchase into a memory.
  • Tldr: Good products. Really slimy and scammed on pricing. Leaves a very bad taste in the mouth Me and my girlfriend went in and found two jackets we loved. Massimo, the brother of Michelangelo, was there initially, and told us that the jackets were 40% off (as shown on the price tag), and also they would reduce price by VAT at the store itself since we were American, and they didn't issue the standard VAT refund forms. We said we would be back in 10 since we wanted a chance to explore a bit more without carrying bags. When we came back Michelangelo was also there. When asked about price since it was time to pay we were quoted 690 for one of the jackets. The list price of the jacket was 1100, and on the tag was written 40% off, which should be 660. On top of that, we had previously been told we should get a 12.5% off for VAT, but that clearly wasn't included. An Italian going in should have been able to purchase the jacket for 660, for us, it should have been in the 600 range, yet we were quoted 690. After arguing they agreed to 660 price, but then said that the 40% discount on the tag included 20% discount, and already included 20% for VAT. Clearly bs. If a Italian walked in, they wouldn't say oh our tag says 40% off but 20% is VAT so you only get 20% off. We ended up paying. The monetary amount wasn't super significant. But what was a purchase we were really excited about now is just a meh purchase because we feel straight up scammed.
