Really lovely food and warm atmosphere here definitely will return
It’s one of our favourite places, a neighbourhood gem.
The food was amazing!!
I love it here. The perfect neighbourhood ambiance. Great food. Service with care and attention.
Since discovering Florians2, I stopped being homesick for Italian cuisine :) A local gem with excellent food and very welcoming service
It was my first time at Florian 2’s and my first meal out since lockdown restrictions were lifted so I was probably a bit over excited and over enthusiastic about eating here. But this was hands down the biggest and most pleasant surprise of the year. We dined al fresco in the lovely terrace at the back, the tables were laid out with crisp white table cloths and napkins. The food was superb, the portions generous, the flavours rich, deep and ever so satisfying and the waiting staff were simply phenomenal: friendly, fun, warm, engaged and engaging. If social distancing hadn’t been in place and if it wasn’t considered inappropriate I would have hugged them on the way out. I’ve never given anyone 5 stars before in a review but Florian 2 deserves this and more. Bravo guys. A truly splendid gem in the heart of Crouch End. Thank you for making our first post lock down social evening so special.
Just lovely. Our 36th wedding anniversary and our first time out on the town (well, Crouch End) since it all went crazy.
What a delight this was! Perfect service and a lovely atmosphere and the FOOD - just superb. My wife had the lobster risotto and I had the lamb - just fantastically delicious.
I cannot recommend this place strongly enough. It is just so great.
excellent local restaurant, it is expensive especially teh wines
Had the sweet lamb - was absolutely sublime.
Not entirely convinced of 1m spacings, but not bad.
We were Florians 2's first table since the relaxation of lock down; it was also the first time we had eaten there.
The service was the excellent, the environment was clean, organised and professional.
We had a fantastic meal and will certainly visit the restaurant again.
If you have concerns about eating out, in the current circumstances, you can be sure that Florians 2 will deliver great food and a safety conscious service.
Good to see diners out supporting a local business.
Outstanding food, excellent service, great negronis - a true favourite!
Excellent food in a very friendly ambience.
Beautifully prepared Italian food. Good size portions. Fresh ingredients. Nothing not to like.
We had a great night out at Florian's 2. The food was delicious and the service impeccable. A Crouch End gem.
Overall a very good experience. The staff were very professional. I had an issue with my main and they dealt with it very professionally, even to the point that owner came to our table which was very pleasing. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.
Only one vegetarian dish on the main menu apart from pasta. Service was pretty slow
Superb quality excellent setting will return 😊
Overall it was very good. But decor is very basic for a special night out also very noisy. They need to think about how to dampen the nice with so clever decorating. However saying this we will return again soon.
Very disappointing. Not enough wait staff on to be attentive and when she was with us not paying attention. We asked for something to come with our mains it arrived with our starters. Had to wave her down for our drinks and mains took ages which we barely touched. Everything was dripping in oil and cooked badly. By way of apology? They removed the service charge. Ridiculous for the prices in there if I could have been bothered I'd have made a fuzz but just won't return or reccomend as it's not as good as it once was.
Excellent food and very comfortable. The service is good and the house wine is very good value.
The perfect neighborhood place -- great food and a really lovely vibe.
Went on a Wednesday when it was quite quiet. Very good service - quick, attentive, friendly. All the food we had (three of us) was great. (Bit too much squid in the fritto misto but that's just a quibble). Have been before and will definitely go again.
Every neighbourhood should have a place like this charming all-purpose Italian with well-prepared classics, varied and excellent value wine list and super-friendly staff, who remember you have been there before.
We had a recommendation and went with high expectations. The front of house staff were friendly and produced our wine quickly, from that point things went down hill. My husband ordered a started which took 25 minutes to arrive and was straight out of the fridge .ie it was almost frozen. Half an hour later they apologised for the delay I serving our main courses .
We were told that there was a party of 40 in the main restaurant who had now had their starters so they would sort our meals out.
Oh dear ! talk about shooting yourself in the foot. This excuse was used a further couple of times which reinforced our feeling of being secondary citizens. I hope they made a lot of money out of their 40 privileged guest because I will not be returning..
Not a way to manage a restaurant. The food was alright but not great and I fear that I shall be returning to Cafe Murano where they understand the value of their clients .
Very welcoming and friendly. The beef stuffed ravioli in sage butter is to die for. So happy to have this little gem so close to home. Newly discovered and plan on making it a regular haunt.
Never disappoints always great service and excellent food.
This place exceeded my expectations and ranks among great quality Italian restaurants found in central London. I definitely recommend it. The lobster risotto special was superb!
Great food, cocktails, wine and service! Thanks Franco and team!
The food was excellent, the ambience superb. The band was particularly impressive and we had an excellent evening.
We had not been to Florians for over 20 years. It was a regular haunt for us in the past when we lived in Highgate and it was a pleasure to visit again in its new guise. We had a thoroughly enjoyable meal with excellent service and in 'almost the words of a former Governor of California' - "We will be back"
We have been to Florians2 many times. From the warm welcome to the spacious table layout, the great choice and quality of food and the attentive service, nothing can be bettered.
This is our local Italian - closed for nearly 10 years then re-opened last year as Florians2. A very welcome return. The service, food and ambiance are all lovely. A lovely venue for a special celebration meal - although we don't need an excuse :)
Florian’s never disappoints! It’s a local gem, where the welcome is always warm and the food is always excellent!
Amazing food & service, a real gem.
Beautiful food and friendly quick service. Highly recommend.
Food and service excellent. The lobster risotto delicious, as were fritto misto and stonebass.
Took family after our engagement. Variety and quality of Italian cuisine are wide and high, and always a very warm welcome in a lovely setting. Firmly becoming a family favourite.
I had a wonderful time visiting Florians 2 with my sister and her fiancé. Everyone was extremely friendly and welcoming. We ordered the steak to share between the three of us with some extra sides and because it was going to take a little time to cook the chef sent us some arancini balls while we were waiting (which wasn’t long). When it arrived the steak was delicious and very tender. The sides were also excellent though special mentions should be made for the rosemary roast potatoes and deep fried courgettes. A really wonderful dining experience.
