The coffee is very expensive, which is a kind of explicable becouse is PROBABLY the frst coffee restaurant in the Europe, but that was not all. We had to pay 12 € becouse we listend to the music they were plaing. Well if I'm staing on their table is hard not to listen to the music. Next time I will... More

If you like modern Italian food done to a high standard, enjoy modern artistic surroundings, excellent service and a good deal, do not miss Caffe Florian. The artworks come from previous Biennales in Venice and some are for sale. We went twice for lunch in one week and thought the lunch menu (coffee and water are included) was both good... More

For me Caffe Florian should be held up as an example of how a restaurant should be run,as every component of our evening was faultless. The place is an intriguing mix of historic Florence,and art gallery,but essentially a fine dining establishment,all held together with an enthusiasm from the staff which can only be because they are happy to be serving...

This is one of the best restaurants I have ever eaten in. The menu is creative, delicious and served with flair. We ate there two night running it was so good with the manager promising us the chef would do something special for us should we go back, so we did. He created a beautiful starter with pasta, cheese and... More

My wife and I have popped into the caffe florian on two separate occasions - one time for tea and another time for a cocktail (We've never tried the restaurant). Both were great experiences. It's a posh environment so the drinks are a bit more on the pricier side, however, the service and creativity make up for it. The barista... More

That is my first review at Tripadvisor but I felt I need to do it as the experience deserved it. I was on a business trip and had an evening on my own (how wonderful!) and was wondering where to eat. During the day I passed the Florian, and wondered whether it would be worthwhile to go to what is... More

We were not disappointed the customer service is excellent, we were given a... More

We had afternoon tea at Florian. Small but good selection. All the customers were seated in the entry zone which is not very nice but which makes it easier for the waiters. Ambiance was frosty. We later discovered that Florian actually is . Much bigger with many nice places.

This was our second visit to the Caffe Florian in The Piazzo San Marco. The first time it was just to sample the coffee. The second time was to enjoy the coffee, sample the delicious pastries on offer, enjoy the live music from the small orchestra, and take in the ambience of the Caffe Florian. We were not disappointed. Caffe... More

We walked passed this restaurant a few times and decided to eat here. The waiter gets 5* he was friendly and interesting. Our mixed starter was ok. Not something I would order again. Some tuna (not fresh) and others. Great presentation and glad we had something we wouldn't normally order. The risotto unfortunately wasn't nice. It was bland and boring.... More
