Florence & Tuscany

Child-Friendly Restaurants and Cafés in Florence

The standard of restaurants in Florence is very high and with the Italian love of children, you can be fairly sure they are always welcome. Usually places have high chairs, but baby changing facilities are non-existent, so expect to improvise when your child needs a nappy change!

  • Trattoria 4 Leone, Florence

    Centro Yoga Om, Vilanova i la Geltru Image

    A trattoria with a great reputation. It’s atmosphere and authentic food are fabulous. A slight challenge to find, but the staff always welcome kids. Inside space can be a squeeze, but in summertime there is an outdoor area too.

  • Borgo Antico

    Recommended by Kirsten Hills

    Centro Yoga Om, Vilanova i la Geltru Image

    Like all of the restaurants in the piazza, the food is reliably good. What makes it ideal for kids is the pedestrianised square, where the kids can run around, within sight, if they are feeling a bit bored after the meal.

    One of the city’s largest toy shops covers 1000 squared metres of space in the centre. It is a family owned business started in 1922 and has a fantastic range of toys. A real child’s paradise.
