The range of food and drink at Relais Santa Croce has been carefully created for you to get to
know and appreciate the local tradition, on a daily journey to rediscover your own senses
through the flavours of Florence and at special gourmet or musical events held with prestigious
The elegant Sala della Musica, the Relais’ largest space, has a majestic, aristocratic atmosphere of historic grandeur. It is the perfect place to sip the finest teas, infusions and tisanes specially selected by the prestigious Via del Tè of Florence.
Each delightful beverage is served in what can rightly be called a work of art: cups by Richard Ginori, Italy’s most important porcelain maker, active since 1735.
Over 250 different types, from favourite black, white and green tea varieties to exotic flavoured teas and blends with flowers, fruit, spices, citrus peel and aromatic herbs.
An unmissable highlight of every day, our afternoon tea of sumptuous cakes, sandwiches and artisanal biscuits in true Italian “merenda” style is served accompanied by the stylings of musicians from Florence’s most prestigious academies.
Tea has a centuries-old charm. It’s more than just a drink: it’s a ritual that tells the story of peoples and in some cases, it is a real ceremony that you can participate in.
Savour the quintessence of Italian culture: making good company into an occasion. Aperitivo Italiano represents this tradition at its finest. Experience it in our elegant G&G Lounge Bar from 19:02. Raise a glass of the world’s favourite Italian bollicine, served with our selection of traditional delicacies.
The strictly seasonal À la carte menu changes frequently and features the finest produce from the local markets. The Taster Menu concept is a real journey of discovery among the local flavours.
We partner with the country’s
most important food producers to offer fine Italian-made products and their unique values to discerning guests.
