Caffe Dei Fiori Ristorante opened in November 2014 on the upper east side of Manhattan. It is the result of Owner Mr. Daliso Gulmini who is compelled with great passion for Italian cuisine. Mr. Gulmini from Bologna, Italy decided to take on the challenge to bring to New York fine Italian tradition and to transform such tradition into excellent dishes.
Caffe Dei Fiori Ristorante is driven by quality ingredients and dedicated research combining them with Italian talent, mentality and heart.
The setting is the outcome of fine craftsmanship thought, planned and realized in the Italian design and mostly with italian manufacturers;
freshness, kindness and ability to put guests at ease are the trade marks that the dining room management wishes to offer during the Caffe Dei Fiori dining experience.

    Me and my girlfriends wanted a last minute Italian meal on Saturday night and we choose here. It was a little quiet for us, but the servers sat us on the top floor so we were comfortable making a lot of noise. The food was amazing I had the Mushroom Risotto and it was so so so good. A little pricey, but a wonderful night.

    We had another great experience here. The food is very high quality and the ambiance is delightful - great lighting level (i.e., not too dark - no flashlight required to read the menu!) and no background music so we could speak to each other. So civilized! A nearby table got louder later on, but fortunately it was close to when we were leaving. The food was really good - whole roasted branzino is enough for two persons or one very hungry one. My friend loved his beef carpaccio and his wife loved her halibut. Go and enjoy but don't recommend it to anyone who is loud.

    Very solid. Good enough to return every once in a while. The negroni is strong. The tuna tartar appetizer special was unimaginative but of good quality. My spaghetti commodore was a test which the chef passed well. The total bill of 125 for two (plus tax) is customary for the Upper East Side. I have had a lot less satisfying experiences in that neighborhood. Don't come to impress your boss or job candidate or new girl friend. But for all other occassions this is worthwhile coming.

    When we first went there, the food was tops and the prices were reasonable. Now the prices have nearly doubled as the quality of their food is a bit disappointing. Their soups are quite good and the large selection of salads as well. But their pastas, which they say are homemade are not good. Greasy👎

    We had Easter brunch at Caffe dei Fiori and it was lovely. Attentive and friendly service and delicious food, with a great ambiance that was quiet but still happy and lively. I definitely plan to come back soon. They had a nice Easter menu in addition to their usual brunch menu, so you could choose from either, which I appreciated.

    What could have been a pleasant evening was marred by thumping disco (yes, disco) on the sound system. We were the only people in the restaurant at 6PM and asked them twice to turn it down. A second party arrived and they complained, too. The restaurant was basically empty; we were mystified why a simple request was not accommodated.
