The Haveli Indian restaurant start on April 13, 2000, in an important date for the Indian Sikh religion, the main province of Punjab.

The April 13, 1666 were the first baptized Sikhs, whose name derives from the ubiquitous Indian surname Singh. It is common to all members of this religion.

A last name the same for all, from the maharaja to the common citizen, it represents a sense of equality even in times when the caste system still existed.

Even today, every member of Sikh religion is called surname “Singh”. In Indian language it means "lion." The last name of the women of the Sikh religion is instead “Kaur”, meaning "princess".


It is worth to know the origin our restaurant’s the name: Haveli. In India, at the beginning of anything, from a human life to an enterprise, using go to the temple Sikh Gurudwara called in the Indian language, "the house of the Guru " and ask the Bhaiji - our priest who acts as an intermediary - to pray and ask the Guru allowed to start.

We went to the Gurudwara in Rome. In the temple, the Bhaiji, who had to get permission from Guru to start our activity, opened the holy book Guru Granth Sahib and the right page 6 9 has read the order of Guru for us, which began with the letter H. During the return trip from Rome to Florence, we chose the name Haveli that in Indian means "RESIDENCE OF HONOR."

The name chosen was challenging and the environment had to be as much important. We succeeded because this is the first Indian restaurant designed, from the very first moment, to be totally Indian! In fact, the furniture, the kitchen, the atmosphere are absolutely authentic and everything looks and smells of our land for the colors and the typical Indian style.

Come then to enjoy our traditional Punjab cuisine, Haveli Indian Restaurant Florence, its smells and flavors are so intense to make you fly with your mind until you really think to be in India.
