Littered with Italian murals and quintessentially traditional food, this Italian institution has been pumping since '28.
Although it hasn't always been owned by the Grossi family, Florentino has stood at the 80 Bourke Street site since 1928. In that time it's changed ownership a number of time, but the sentiment has remained the same: Florentino has always been about authentic Italian dining and great wine. The restaurant has since been split into three parts: the 'Cellar bar', 'Grill' and 'Upstairs'. The Grossi family have been running the show for the past 15 year, and it's still at the top of the list for simple Italian dining in the CBD.
