Florence necessities: wifi, food, football

I'll be in Florence for 1 week. I'd like to ask for places with good internet access; good steak and other local dishes; good view of the Champions League games.

I'm staying close to Sesto Fiorentino, about 25min away by bus from Centro. Suggestions about places in either Centro or SF are much appreciated.
* Wifi. I've been going to Arnold Coffee near SMN for the free wifi, but it's a slog. Do you have alternatives for good (free or affordable) wifi access in Centro or SF? Willing to pay for a cafe.
* Food. Guidebooks are overloaded with listings; I've tried Nerbone and Icche C'e C'e, plus Trattoria La Grotta Parri which was recommended by a local person. None of them served the steak though. Where would you suggest I go for one? Any other suggestions in terms of local food that you personally enjoy?
* Football. I'd like to watch Atlético Madrid vs Barcelona tomorrow (or Bayern Munich vs Man Utd tonight) live at 8:45PM. Where might be a good place? I saw a few Irish bars around Centro. Do they show football? Are they safe/pleasant at night for a lone Asian tourist who speaks only a smidgen of Italian?
Please feel free to throw in any additional suggestions about hidden gems, side trips to outside Centro, etc. Grazie.
