This is a favorite stop for my wife and I. We enjoy having a snack,drink maybe a meal and relaxing outside watching the people come and go through the plaza. We embrace the Italian waiters which some people find slow and rude but when you...More

Myself and two of my friends went here for dinner one. We bought a starter, mains, dessert and drinks. I can honestly say the food was wonderful, but the service was appalling. I've never met such rude staff in my life. We spent most of...More

I will be fair and say that this place is Fancy and present delicious desserts but not the best. Prices are slightly higher but of course because of the location. When it comes to the service, I will just say that we waited for 35...More

Apparently this place is legend in Florence as many famous people have frequented the cafe. We had pastries and beverages, I tried something called a cedrata which is a type of citrus soft drink (non-alcoholic) and it was delicious! I'm just sad that after that,...More

Gilli is a god send on a hot day in Florence. Great people watching. Our waiter Maurizio was fantastic: sophisticated, urbane, witty, and fun. Make sure you get seated in his section.

Bought 3 pieces of marzipan fruits for £8 and a box of jelly fruits for £18. Absolutely awful. Full of sugar and no flavour at all. Poor service. First choose your jellies, then receive a slip then queue up to pay, then return to counter...More

Extremely expensive, touristy and poor service. We would recommend finding a cafe off the main square. There was decent people-watching and the pastries were gorgeous to look at, but it did not feel like authentic Italy.

This place was a God sent in a really hot day exploring Florence. It has air-conditioning and that alone will earn them 5 stars, however it's a bit expensive and the coffee wasn't that good. The trimaso and the ice cream were lovely though.

A cafe with a wonderful history and a great ambiance but the bottle of sparkling Rose we wanted cost more than 35 euro than another restaurant we had just left across the square. Pity!

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
