We had the tasting menu with five courses, seem to remember it was something like 100Euros/head, mainly fish, and it was amazing. Starter was a very novel take on tricolore, then something with prawns, then monkfish tartare, then some other fish - apologies, it's a while since we went - and then a really interesting dessert Sit on the balcony,...

Be sure to ask for a table on the balcony. There are only two and it was wonderful. (Of course, the sun was out and it was a nice day, too!) Overlooking the river, watching the rowers and boats, it wouldn't have mattered if the food wasn't great, but it was. Well prepared, nice presentation. The wine list was good... More

Foodies only! If you don't appreciate fine dining then this is not the restaurant for you. However, it is a foodie's heaven. The dishes are unique, colorful, and interesting. They are served with special plates with variety. The combinations of foods are like none other. And then there is the view....a table on the terrace is, BAR NONE, the best... More

Elegant setting, superb food and service overlooking the Arno on the Pitt Palace side. Expensive but worth it to top off your stay in Florence. Don't miss it!

Lunch on the terrace, overlooking the Arno was absolutely lovely. The service was exceptional, the food exquisite. I could eat here every day. The yogurt and cucumber gazpacho was bursting with flavor and the zucchini flan was simply perfect. The hotel has beautiful art in the lobby. Quiet, elegant and relaxing.

It seems like there is nothing that this chef can't do. Their specialty is fish and it is so fresh that you would think you were eating near the ocean. I had one of the best pastas the other day with wild boar and it was terrific. Our friends all had sea bass and it was so delicate and tasty... More
