Had a table in the window overlooking the Ponte Vecchio. Last minute booking, but they fitted us in. Once we had finished our meal, they found us a small table with two seats so we could continue to enjoy the atmosphere and the jazz band

Returning once more I was remembered & again, very well catered to. There a are a few key waters who will take your order--they are supported by a team of able assistants who (with varying degrees of accuracy) bring everything to table. I had recommended the line-caught tuna steak & it was stunning..perfectly cooked to order & generously proportioned. Good... More

Very pleasant casual place with good food and warm service. Had a very good pasta with clams and salad for lunch. Place is comfortable and reasonably priced

WE stopped by for an afternoon of wine tasting without a reservation. Staff made arrangements and were very happy to find us a seat. Together we decided on a nice bottle of red and it included a lovely plate of cheese, olives and bread. The view was lovely and the service excellent.

Stumbling around from exhaustion at the Ponte Vecchio I doubted I would find anything edible for a decent price. To my pleasant surprise I ended up at the Golden View. It lived up to it's name but all I cared was whether the food had a "golden" taste. My saffron and parmesan risotto was reasonably priced at 11 euros and... More

Golden view was fantastic from start to finish. Whilst waiting for our table (because it was packed with locals) we were given a complimentary glass of prosecco. We waited maybe 5 minutes. Everyone greeted us warmly and made a welcoming impression. Our table was situated in the middle of the dining room. So we had a great view of both... More

The view, atmosphere and location couldn't be nicer. Friendly people, lovely ambiance. Many nights offer a jazz ensemble that was very pleasant when we dined there. The menu is nicely thought out with separate "land" and "sea" choices. Since fish is hard to comeby in Florence we were looking forward to dinner. Food was just average. Nothing special. Worth a...

While we were in Florence we dined here twice both times for lunch. Our first experience was very good the service was very good and the food excellent. The second visit here was different, in terms of service we experienced significant delays, and at the end the meal we placed an order for coffee we waited and waited and it... More
