In the heart of Florence

since 1733


The oldest café in Florence, the city’s living room for over 270 years.

Gilli is the oldest café in the city of Florence. Established over 270 years ago by a Swiss family in Medici-era Florence, it started as a pastry shop steps away from the Duomo. In the mid-1800s, it moved to Via degli Speziali, and from there to its current location in Piazza della Repubblica.

Pastry tradition passed down through generations

Caffè Gilli started out as a pastry shop, and became known around the world for its artisanal sweets.
