Caffé Gilli

1R Via Roma
Florence , Italy http://www.gilli.it/
39-055-213-896

With a history dating back to 1733, Caffé Gilli is one of the oldest continuously operating cafés in the city. Located in Piazza della Repubblica, Gilli retains an early 20th-century style with frescoed ceilings, rich wood paneling, Murano lamps, and a green marble—topped bar. Seating is also available outside on the patio, which faces the busy square. The menu includes traditional Italian savory dishes such as panini and pastas, but Gilli is best known for its pastries, such as freshly baked cornetti (Italian croissants), as well as its handmade chocolate truffles, thick hot chocolate, and well-made cappuccino.
