On a recent trip to Melbourne we decided to book Florentino for a special dinner. I am so glad that we did. We opted for the degustazione menu and chose a beautiful bottle of brunello to accompany the meal. The food was, without a doubt,...More

We recently visited Florentino Upstairs restaurant and enjoyed the wonderful food and the old school Italian setting. We weren't expecting the set menus but plenty on offering of the highest quality. The wine list is the most extensive i have seen (possibly too much choice)...More

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways

Hello, I'm sorry for the delay. No doubt you have already experienced the delight of Grossi Florentino by now. Smart casual is fine, but it's so lovely there and getting dressed up would be nice.
