Nu Ovo is the Grand Hotel Cavour’s concept restaurant: an innovative and unique place, in the ancient heart of Florence. Tastiness meets beauty, Nu Ovo Restaurant represents all the characteristics of the product at the core of its philosophy: the egg. Appealing, tasty, nutritious and concentrate.
Nu Ovo Restaurant was born from the strong bond with the Tuscan countryside and the desire to bring the attention for tradition and the simple and genuine food into the city centre.
An elegant and cosmopolitan location, in which you can lunch under the high vaulted ceilings, entirely frescoed by Galileo Chini, the Italian liberty master.

Lunch Time: From Tuesday to Saturday 12:30 – 03:30 pm

Brunch Time: Every Sunday 12:00 – 03:30 pm

High-quality eggs, organic products, bread and focaccia homemade with sourdough and wholemeal flour, Chianina meat, truffle and Tuscan extra-virgin olive oil…
At the core of Nu Ovo Restaurant is the idea of re-visiting and re-interpreting the egg-based cuisine, to explore all of its potentialities and enhance this food heritage.

A young and dynamic staff, as the dishes we serve. A fast yet attentive service, to allow yourself a gourmet lunch break, without keeping you from work or the discovery of the city.
