Prices are displayed, we are not a cheap restaurant, the quality, the location and the service that you liked are the confirmation that we are doing a good job.

Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by
an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city.
The historic center is characterized by the immensity
of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the
brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does
not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni
Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is
enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city

Donnini 1894 has been in the Piazza della Repubblica, in the historic centre of Florence, since 1894. Once a literary café, now an exclusive restaurant, Donnini has always known how to change with the needs of the city. It’s the perfect place to enjoy a delicious breakfast, lunch with a view, an aperitif in the evening or a cocktail after dinner.
