We found this hotel on trip advisor. It is a bit tucked away so probably wouldn't have found it otherwise. We are staying in the Hotel Delle Nazioni which was only a stone's throw away. The restaurant is only small so I recommend booking in advance. I sent the restaurant an email to book and they replied the same day!... More

After a very horrible experience in another so called Indian restaurant in Florence, it was with some trepidation that we went to Haveli. We were bent on finding a good place for indian food. Haveli proved to be 'the' place. Staff were very friendly and the food was very good and at reasonable prices. We had mutton and grilled lamb... More

We stumbled upon this hotel searching for an Indian restaurant near our hotel. We were welcomed by a great set of hosts. We asked them to pack our food and they were kind enough to pack chutney, pickle and plastic cutlery along with the food. Though we were getting our food packed they served us mango juice as welcome drink... More

We tried two starters and two items from main course along with parathas and tandoori rotis. Paneer pakoras were delicious and chicken do pyaza was amazing. All in all, a great evening with awesome food and friendly staff. Only negative point is its ambiance which is too stuffed and congested. Better to make reservations before going on weekends.

I was in Florence for a day and came across this restaurant. The food was scrumptious and very affordable. The complimentary papads increase your appetite. Tasty food and lovely service. The restaurant is mostly full hence I would suggest to make a reservation before you go.

We were craving Indian food after having spent more than 2 weeks away from home .. The concierge at Four Seasons reccomended HAVELI and we came here expecting average food. The restaurant is nicely decorated, the staff are friendly and the service is good. The food was actually quite good though the portions are a bit smaller than expected -... More

We visited this place last week and must say the reviews were all correct. The food was great. The owner Mr.Giotti Singh was simply superb to talk with.

OK food. Pathetic service. The waiters were in a rush to take our plates away even while we were still eating. Being a waiter myself, it was a poor display of waiting. Too expensive for the little amounts of food we got. Especially the starters were a rip off. The samosas were tiny. NOt going there again unless they drop... More
