A millenary tradition and
its new horizons

Haveli is the oldest Indian restaurant in Florence. Our history begin in 2000 in the Punjab region and reaches the heart of Tuscany: here we tell the story of indian traditional food and culture, of which we are strict guardians.

The restaurant is run by Jyoti Singh, a chef who is a member of the Florentine cooks and sommeliers association, and by his wife Rubel, who takes care of the economic and organizational management of the restaurant.

We have recently renewed the image of our restaurant: we interpret the soul of India with a new and contemporary look, because we are tied to our traditions but, at the same time, we look far away.

There is no better place to discover Indian food in Florence than Haveli. We have a deep knowledge of the culinary traditions of Punjab and India: dishes with a long history that we exalt with modern cooking techniques, respecting the principles of Ayurveda. You will experience a fascinating sensory journey through spices, aromas and intense tastes, carefully selected for you.
