This place is located in an interior courtyard off Worth Ave. The center of the courtyard is planted with flowers and shrubs and creates a wonderful setting for romantic dining,
Most of the tables are outside, the service is excellent and the food is very good. The appetizer and salad were well prepared but my entree, linguine with clams, was bland. The pasta was al dente and the clams were fresh but the sauce was lacking in taste. It needed better olive oil and more pepper.
This is truly an exceptional setting.
However the bathroom is on the other side of the patio.

This little gem in a piazza just off Worth Avenue with its lovely open garden tables is a must for people who appreciate freshly cooked food of the highest order.Having taken a number of meals here we rate this smallish restaurant the best in Palm Beach.The fish and seafood combined with Pasta or Risotto can only have been cooked by an Italian ! Forget the other larger establishments along Worth Avenue where you will be charged more and receive less in both quality and service.

Tucked in between some very posh surroundings, Cafe Via Flora lives up to all the reviews. It feels wonderful to walk through the open space into their garden restaurant. Tables with white linens, white umbrellas; what a gorgeous scene! John, the mait're d', was wonderful. We learned a little history of the restaurant and even got to meet the owner's husband(!). Upon John's recommendation, I chose the lamb in a cranberry port reduction over grilled spring vegetables and mashed potatoes. It was SUPERB! My husband had the Risotto di Mare, which was wonderful and rich. Berry pie for dessert was delicious with fresh raspberries and blueberries. Maybe 15 tables, this is a great find! A little on the pricier side with calamari appetizer at $17, lamb dinner I had was $35, but I scraped my plate clean! I would love to become a regular here, but for special occasions.... without a doubt we will be back!

There is not much more to say, you should definitely try this out. Their menu sounds really great, it was hard to decide what to choose. We had pasta and a seafood dish as entrees and both were delicious, as were the other courses.
The atmosphere in the evening was very romantic in this beautiful garden behind Hermès at Worth Avenue (which is definitely worth a walk at night).
The staff was friendly as well and the owner came to our table serving a homemade Limoncello which was very nice as well.
Perfect dining experience.

Like many others we were touring Worth Avenue with 5:30 pm reservations at another restaurant. When we walked through the courtyard and saw the white table cloths and flowered gardens we immediately cancelled our reservations elsewhere and made them for Via Flora. What a great decision! We took glasses of wine to a separate seating area. We thought we were in Europe. Promptly at 6:00pm we were called for dinner. The menu and wine selection is very reasonably priced. Two had the haddock with sauteed spinach ($24.95) while one had the Brick Chicken ($22.95) with sweet potatoes and I had Bolognese pasta ($22.95). All were excellent. The house Malbec and Merlot ($9.95 per glass) were good choices. Excellent service wait staff. Will definitely return.
