As a part of the mixed-use complex called One West Victory, The Florence is a top-notch restaurant located in the renovated 19th century Savannah Ice Factory. The transformed building is a light-flooded space with reclaimed marble wall cladding, countertops and table tops, reclaimed sinker cypress wood bar cladding and standing coffee bar. The cafe has an extensive list of coffee, espresso drinks, and daily selection of house made pastries, while the restaurant side serves the best in locally-sourced Italian fare, including house-made pizzas in an imported Italian wood-fired oven.
The restaurant features exposed wood beam ceilings, reclaimed heart pine floors custom-milled from the building’s original floor and roof beams, back-lit bars featuring craft beers and signature wines, and banquette seating, all which highlight the antique look of the building. An exposed kitchen gives the guests a glimpse into the world of the chef as their food is being prepared.
For guests wanting to enjoy their meal al fresco, there is roof top dining and “herb garden patio dining.”
