The Caffe Gilli has, especially on the inside, all the flair of a grand old coffee house, and with its attentive waiters and classy interior the atmosphere won't disappoint. The coffee and pastries were excellent, though they were pricey. Still, it's a great place for...More

We visited to have an ice cream. This is a very touristic location, but a great piazza to visit. The cafe is literally overwhelmed with people. We were seated but had to wait for a while until our order was taken. The waiters were to...More

The Location is what is saving this restaurant, as the mood of the servers was snotty and they acted like we inconvenienced them by being there. The food was not good at all and the lasagna was clearly left over from the day before as...More

Great cappuccino and pastries, typical Florentine breakfast. Have your cappuccino at the bar and be sure to try the biscotti. If it's after lunch opt for an espresso, it's a faux pas to have a cappuccino post breakfast.

Thank you for being our guest. We are sorry to know your stay at Gilli didn't meet your expectations. It is usual in cafès and restaurants like Gilli to reserve tables for clients ordering when sitting.

Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by
an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city.
The historic center is characterized by the immensity
of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the
brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does
not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni
Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is
enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city
