Italian
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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.
