Cafe Giacosa


Info


Description

Leopard skin and zebra prints all the way with Roberto Cavalli.

Start the day at Caffè Giacosa with a cappuccino and one of the best pastries around, or for an afternoon treat, check out the luxurious house speciality, a "caffè marocchino", a short espresso coffee topped with milk foam and laced with rich, dark melted chocolate. If you are feeling a little decadent after a day of luxury shopping in Via Tornabuoni and you want to hang on to it a little longer, slip in to Giacosa for a cocktail. Stand shoulder to shoulder with the well-heeled patrons and enjoy the comings and goings or pay slightly more for waiter service at a table or outside on the terrace.

The legendary Negroni cocktail, now a favourite Florentine aperitif, was invented at Giacosa a century ago when the Count Negroni regularly propped up the bar and asked the barman to sharpen up his usual cocktail of Campari and vermouth with a shot of gin.

For a more historic ambiance try the Giacosa offshoot just across the road at the Strozzi Palace. Drinks are served to your table in the once private courtyard of the enormously rich Filippo Strozzi .

You have to taste the pastries here! They do bite size so you can try them all, the cream is so light it can't be bad for you, right? And the cappuchino was the best we had too.
