This is the "in place" to take coffee, lunch or dinner. The food is wonderful, delicious, well presented with excellent service. The setting is like something out of the 1920/30's you really do have to experience this.... Do yourself a favour.....

We had lasagna and salad with a glass of chianti. Food was good and reasonably prices. We sat in an enclosed outdoor cafe. They have excellent dessert too. I recommend visiting this place at least once. Atmosphere was relaxing and service was very good.

Came to Gilli following a recommendation from our guide book. Lovely venue, but the service was poor, the staff clearly interested in anything other than the customers. Having spent over €20 on two herbal teas and a cake, I'd also have hoped for better quality toilet paper (seriously), and for the electric hand-drier to work, rather than be handed a... More

Great location right across from Hotel Savoy. We made a quick stop at Caffe Gilli in the late afternoon. The hot chocolate was amazing! We couldn't find any other place to match the quality throughout our trip.

A very comfortable spot for people watching and quality coffee and food, but it's very pricey and the service is super slow

I have been here a few times and it's a wonderful setting that is warm and cozy. We had cappuccinos which were fantastic and my daughters had the decadent hot chocolate which was fabulous. It's a bit pricey but really ambiance and quality is there.

Staying in Duomo

Neighbourhood Profile
Duomo
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 as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
