From the best breakfast to a Tuscan aperitivo in Florence

Discover our all day dining options

In the renovated Grand Hotel Minerva, the dining spaces have a fresh new look and identity to go with it. The bar, restaurant and outdoor restaurant merge in a comfortable space that fits into the hotel's lobby. Such large, comfortable common areas have become a rarity in hotels. We furnished them so you can feel at ease to relax, get together, chat, drink and eat, whether alone or together. Whether you want to revive with an espresso, relax with a cocktail, savor a nice snack, or have a romantic candlelit dinner,  it's your choice what to enjoy and when to do so in our "La Buona Novella” Italian bistrot.
