We found this place which is located in the San Marco Square, and this place has alot of history, so much so it is considered the longest running cafeteria in the world, dating all the way back to the early 1700´s. Delicious gourment fusion menu, and great service from the staff. Great experience.

After a lovely afternoon of shopping, I stopped at the Florian Cafe to buy a gift for a friend and have a bite to eat. I was the only patron in the cafe, and ordered a vegetable sandwich. Shortly thereafter, I smelled something burning. The waitress was at the register directly next to me, and made no move in reaction... More

This gorgeous location on Via del Parione is a replica of the original Florian in Piazza San Marco in Venice. A lovely find dining restaurant perfect if you love fish, bellini's and other Venetian delicacies. Particularly good on Sundays for Brunch

There is always the moment in Italy when pizza and pasta will no longer do it - this is the time for a dinner at Caffe Florian (although you will get excellent pasta as well there). Enjoy a creative cuisine and very high quality (managed by the famous Caffe Florian from St. Markus square Venice)

We ate at the restaurant connected to the bar/cafe. The food was exquisitely prepared, melt in your mouth and tantalizing to the taste buds. The device was professional and personal. Highly recommended for tourists.

Florence is a tremendous cultural and gastronomical city. The only thing lacking in this glorious city is a little bit of balance and diversity. Enter Caffe Florian. After imbibing in wonderful wine for days, my wife and I were in search of a great cocktail which proved far more difficult than I thought. Fortunately, a local boutique owner (and chef)... More

This cafe was a huge disappointment. I've been to cafe Florian in Venice, absolutely loved it and couldn't wait to go to the Florence branch. The service in Florian Florence was appalling. We were served by this lady who seemed friendly but was extremely slow with everything. We ordered the club sandwiches for lunch which took about 45 mins to... More

In a city more famed for ancient style than modern..maybe you'll find this newish outpost of the famed Venetian Caffe by the same name, refreshing? I did! I dropped in here on a passing "that looks nice " whim & stayed for a very professionally presented Chef's Special Luncheon...E16 for 2 courses inc water & coffee/service..not at all bad !... More

The original comes from Venice. However- this one in Florence- outshines it. cheaper, friendlier and more homey :)

Description
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.

Staying in Uffizi

Neighborhood Profile
Uffizi
Every visitor coming to Florence for the first time will immediately identify with Uffizi. As in past times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can reach the city center, the Florence that everybody dreams of. In just a few steps, visitors can experience the rare beauty of the capital of the Renaissance. walking delighted across Palazzo Vecchio and overlooking Piazza della Signoria, up to the Loggia of the Uffizi where it is possible to fully taste the talent of the best artists who animated Florence over the centuries. When the sun goes down, there’s nothing better than a walk along the river Arno up to the ancient bridge, Ponte Vecchio. It is full of jewels and decorated by the colors captured in postcards.
