Florence fine-dining: Caffè dell’Oro

Taking its name from Florence’s famous tradition of gold crafting, Caffè dell’Oro is a bistro located on the river Arno. The menu boasts light dishes inspired by the Italian regional tradition, which add creativity without losing the taste of simplicity. Chef Alessio Mori’s Farm to Table menu uses fresh produce from Il Borro’s vegetable garden, not far from Florence. Caffè dell’Oro has recently introduced Farm to Glass, a range of organic wines produced by avant-garde wineries to be paired with the dishes.
