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.

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.

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!

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"

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 :)

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.

Really good evening out. We came around 6pm on a Friday; the place was really quiet but filled quickly around 7ish. Took advantage of the happy hour and hit a couple of pre-dinner cocktails, which were lovely. Food was, as always, really good! Can't fault it, really good restaurant with really good service and great food. Left thinking of our next excuse to come again...

Really impressed with the quality and quantity of the food. Some main courses would benefit from extra side/vegetable dishes which are a bit pricey so it does hike the overall price up somewhat. Wine seemed good value.

We went as the reviews were so good and were not disappointed! Everything was perfect - the art, the decoration, the food, wine, service and the ambience. I cannot recommend this place enough! It was really special and I'm excited to go back. Big thanks to the staff for making it a lovely evening.

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!
