After our average dinner at Borgo Antico, we decided to treat ourselves for some good Italian pastries and tried Caffè Gilli, a cafe opened in 1733 by the Gilli family, that moved since then in different part of the city.
Caffè Gilli is a beautiful place that combines a patisserie and a tea room that had a very elegant decor.
Jodi decided to order a tea
For pastries, we went for:
the tiramisu (of course, we could not not have it Italy):
It was delicious, very creamy with a nice amount of coffee.
Very good, the cake was perfect and there was a nice amount of rum in it.
Although I liked the ricotta filling, it was a miss, the shell being soggy.
This was a good way to end the evening. If I were to go back to Florence, I would definitely go back Caffè Gilli and definitely recommend the latte macchiato that was divine, as well as the tiramisu or baba (anyway, they have plenty more pastries to try!).
