Welcome to Florians 2! Family Restaurant and Bar looking forward to welcoming you! Florians² comes from the needs of bringing an authentic family feeling restaurant in Crouch End – a restaurant with a personality and a soul offering honest Italian dining and a front facing Bar with a life of its own and a separate menu. While the Bar area will propose Cicchetti – the Venetian Style tapas – and classic Italian Stuzzichini, the restaurant will propose a menu true to the traditions of Italian cuisine revised and created to taste of the two owners for the enjoyment of their customers. Bookings are only available in the Restaurant Area.

We always get great food and service. Is a treat for us to go to Florian 2. Ossobuco ravioli is great and would have loved a bit more of the subtle creamy sauce it comes with as the portion of pasta is substantial.
The grilled veal was superbly done, excellent quality of the meat.
A scoop of pistachio gelato and a glass of vinsanto to finish off a lovely meal.
We only made one mistake in choosing the half carafe of house red to accompany our food as it was not up to the same level.
We did not feel like drinking a whole bottle and we regretted the acidic oxidised wine we got.

Another brilliant dinner at Florian's, as always Franco (owner) was extremely welcoming!! We chose a wide range of dishes and found them all to be full of flavour and filling!!

Can't wait to return for another great meal.

Was my favourite restaurant 10 years ago as Florians, and I'm delighted it's every bit as good 10 years later as Florians 2! Great food, friendly service, relaxed bar, everything is just right. A fantastic little oasis in the bustling heart of Crouch End.

It was great to be back! Couldn’t believe it when our friends told us that Florians were back in Crouch End, so we arranged to meet there for a catch up. They had a long journey and were delayed but that was no problem - our table was there when we wanted it and while waiting we had a cocktail at the bar! The food was excellent and our waitress friendly and very patient as we were chatting so much we’d hardly looked at the menu!! I love it that Franco has found the same premises to open his second Florians and I’m sure he will be just as successful. I’m just glad he’s back, and we definitely will be!

Excellent food but, once again, very slow service. Even though it was Saturday evening and they must have known they were going to be busy, the kitchen staff just weren't able to turn the food round quickly enough. The waiters were standing around looking desperate for food to be ready to be taken to the customers. The owner was clearly aware of the problem as we were offered desserts on the house. This was the third time we have been so far this year and it is always the same: great food but you have to wait far too long for it.

I was there for a birthday celebration and we had a table of 8 (4 couples). The food was very good but the service was truly exceptional. We couldn't have felt any more welcome, and even though we were the very last to leave they never once hassled us. I would hurry back anytime and thoroughly recommend this place

We just had the pasta with clams and the pasta with scallops and saffron. Both were tasty, especially the clams. The house wine was excellent. Service was friendly and helpful. Will definitely come back.

lovely food - as good as any Italian in the west end. The waiters sometimes don't speak good enough english which is quite frustrating e.g. our friend asked what malt whiskies they had and the waiter could only name 1 because he didn't really understand.... so be sure to ask for the owner who is very obliging at substituting and has good knowledge and experience. Veal chop and pastas were excellent.

Great restaurant. We sat at a quiet table in the back, away from the lively bar. The risotto was rich and creamy, the aubergine delicious, as was the sea bass. Service very friendly and attentive. Although I think it is a little expensive. I will definitely go again, but not as often as I'd like.

I hadn't visited before and was not disappointed I think I will visit often.
Franco the owner greeted us with a beaming smile always a nice touch!
Food was excellent good portions it was fully booked so I think that is an indication.
A gem hidden in Crouch End I will be telling a lot of people about this restaurant.
We had fish and meat both were excellent great Italian food.
My cousin and his wife also enjoyed it.

Great food, great service, good local restaurant. Could do with some ambient lighting, rather than glaring spot lights. Would recommend if in the area.

Such a welcome return for an old favourite from long ago. The perfect kind of ‘local’ Italian - smart and fun enough for a proper evening out, but very decently priced and authentic dishes. Absolutely charming service, with a special mention for the wine list - imaginative range and very good value at all price points.

A little bit of Italy in crouch end. Move welcome and we enjoyed the setting. The food was a little disappointing, we both had fish and it was bland and uninteresting.

I had the cod for my main and was disappointed as the dish did not have much flavor and was on the small side However my friend really enjoyed her food so possibly I made the wrong choice. I have eaten in the bar area before and had a rally nice meal
