In the center of Florence

the restaurant

The elegant and welcoming interior of our restaurant was designed by the famous architect Riccardo Barthel.

The characteristic atmosphere of the reception introduces two environments: on the left your gaze will be seduced by the Gastronomy Room with the display of our culinary products chosen for exceptional quality, while on the right the intimate Kitchen Room that will allow you to witness the secrets of our kitchen through a modern glass door.

From our gastronomy department you then enter the Enoteca Room, where you can taste our delicacies and our best wines, arranged in a suggestive review that covers three walls of the room. The last room, which is accessed through the Enoteca Room, is the Oil Room, entirely dedicated to the display and tasting of this incredible ingredient of Italian cuisine.

Tuscan Excelsia

At Olio Restaurant you can also request and book exceptional catering at your home or in a splendid location, making use of the close bond that unites the two companies managed by the same property.

We enhance the oil by mixing the culinary art with the Tuscan culture in a journey that becomes a sensory experience.
