Flora, An Italian Experience

After an exciting work experience in New York we decided to try to show culinary tradition of our land to New Yorkers. It's easy to say "Italian cuisine," but it's very difficult to define and convey what really is, for us Italians, food and everything that revolves around it.

We are not chefs but we have a boundless passion for our cultural and culinary heritage.

We are from Vallo di Diano (SALERNO), Southern Italy area straddling the Lucania hills and the Cilento sea and this means that our cuisine has lots of varieties and influences.

True Italian Cuisine varies from mile to mile but having a common thread, namely the simplicity of the recipes, cooked with very few, genuine, and high quality ingredients.

Most of the key products, are imported directly from Italy, from small local productions.

We serve breakfast to lunch through a very tasty brunch. Soon will start to serve dinner.

We serve a great selection of imported Italian Beers and Wines.
