Florian’s is a café steeped in local history. This historic palazzina was home to the studio where sculptor Giulio Monteverde created some of his finest works, including the famous angel adorning the roof of the building. The original sculpture, known as ‘Franklin’s Genius’, was presented to Benjamin Franklin, and now resides at his Washington home. Later, Florian’s became famous as a haunt of the city magistrates based in the Piazza.
Today its convenient location close to Termini makes it an ideal stop for breakfast, a quick lunch or dinner, or an evening cocktail. A reasonably priced menu includes pasta, traditional meat dishes, and pizzas from a wood-fired oven, as well as an extensive wine list. Alternatively, admire the Etruscan murals as you enjoy the wide selection of cakes, pastries and teas available at the traditional Italian caffé. Florian’s Cafe also offers gluten free croissants, gallette and bread and energising fresh juices.
