About Irene Firenze

Irene welcomes you to her Tuscan bistro with dishes created by Fulvio Pierangelini.

Story

Changing with the seasons, according to what is gathered from the local markets, foraged in the Tuscan countryside, or sourced from artisanal suppliers in the region, the menu at Irene is a sensational expression of place with a passionate culinary philosophy at its heart. The dishes here are deceptively simple, each bite revealing the artistry of the chefs, the splendour of the ingredients.

On Friday evenings, Irene’s exclusive outdoor terrace—decorated with the Savoy’s signature Emilio Pucci designs in Mediterranean shades of blue and pink—and indoor dining room are the aperitivo destination of choice for Florence’s elite to enjoy “Fish & Spritz.” On Sundays, “It’s Raining Meatballs”, with a lunchtime feast featuring handcrafted meatball dishes, salads of wild herbs and Irene’s unique blend of playful style and elegant spirit.
