The close artistic and cultural affinity between Venice and Florence has brought an enchanting piece of the Venetian elegance in the amazing Tuscan capital. The historical Caffe Florian, opened in 1720 in St. Mark's Square in Venice, now finds its natural space in Florence, with the opening of this new and prestigious location where the exclusive coffeehouse and the fine dining meet the Contemporary Art. Part of the private Florian Art Collection is now here on show in a permanent exhibition, Aron Demetz, Mimmo Rotella, Fabrizio Plessi, Gaetano Pesce, Irene Andessner, Bruno Ceccobelli, Marco Nereo Rotelli, Paolo W. Tamburella, Luca Buvoli, Massimo Nordio, Arcangelo and Fausto Gilberti are some of the many both Italian and international artists who, over the years, reated exclusive pieces of art expressly for the Venetian Caffe Florian. And now their works are in Florence, to pay their tribute to the three centuries' tradition of style, elegance and refinement, that made the Florian name a renowned myth all over the world.

We had visited Florians on a previous trip to Florence really enjoyed it and said that we would return , and we did! This time we called in for afternoon tea and enjoyed great coffee and macaroons. The décor here is unconventional and is appealing with its degrees of quirkiness and artistic cleverness, so to even visit for coffee and... More

Dear Pierluigi, Thank you for your kind review. You had a right perception: Our chef Daniele Di Sacco is Italian, but his helpers Krismon and Eri are from Philippines and Japan. The fusion of their ideas and backgrounds makes our dishes special as you said. We hope to see you again in our restaurant, Caffè Florian Firenze More

This was a must see for us and we were not disappointed. I wanted to spoil my wife with a Medley of fine cakes and refreshments. I would urge any a romantic fool to take their loved one here..

Staying in a nearby hotel we walked past Florian one afternoon and liked the look of the menu outside. Even though the restaurant was just closing after their lunch service, we were welcomed warmly and we booked dinner for that evening. The décor is attractive with three main seating areas, one to the front overlooking the street and two to... More

We stopped here for a glass of prosecco and a couple of macarons. The bartender was an extremely dapper fellow with an amazing beard and short ponytail who crafted drinks like fine works of art. We had as much fun watching him as we did enjoying the drinks and dessert.

Was a great evening. We tried 2 different fixed menus and were pleasantly surprised. Danny the waiter was very gracious and even gave us other restaurant tips(Gusto Pizza). We had a great white wine from the Val D'osta region and the food was beautiful and tasty. I will add pictures when I figure out how......

My friend and I are traveling through Italy at the moment, and came across Cafe Florian totally by chance. As we walked past, we were invited in by a lovely waiter (Fabiano I think his name was) who offered us a free glass of bubbles. We were apprehensive, having been offered "free" things in Rome that then turned out to... More
