#12 of 122 in Nightlife in Florence
Relax and refuel in style at Gilli, one of the city's oldest cafes, dating back to 1733. Located on Piazza della Repubblica, the establishment offers delicious salads, pastries, lasagna, fries, and much more. Don't forget to admire the 20th-century decor featuring wood paneling, Murano glass lamps, and frescoed ceilings. A cup of coffee can be a little pricey, but visitors enjoy having a drink outside the shop at night, when romantic music plays in the square.

  • I had dinner there on my first day in Florence. The waiter was very friendly and the pasta and grilled vegetables we ordered tasted good:) The interior is very beautiful and the toilet was clean (it's quite hard to find a clean toilet in the middle of Florence). Worth a visit if you are there!
  • It's a nice place, but the food did not live up to the prices. Ordered a pasta with truffles, there was no sauce and it was very dry. The pasta itself was good. Portions are tiny, although that is to be expected. Service was on the slow side. Might add it was pretty warm there in the evening, and no AC or fans to cool down with.
