Walking back from Piazzale Michelangelo mid-Friday afternoon, we spotted this cafe ovelooking the river opposite Uffizi and close to Ponte Vecchio. Perfect for tea/coffee and cannoli ( I don't normally do pastries but I am a sucker for these Sicilian delights - and this was my naughty moment on this visit). We could sit or take away and it was... More

Very elegant, wonderful service, great view and delicious food! We celebrated a birthday there and found it to be very romantic and perfect for a special occasion.

The food and ambiance at Golden View is very nice. I was a study abroad student for 3 1/2 months and this place was a favorite among many of my friends. However, in my opinion the service was a bit stiff. They were in no way rude to us but I never heard one story about a "great" waiter/waitress. Sadly... More

Golden View Open Bar lived up to all its reviews. The food was excellent - all three of us had different dishes and everything was delicious. The service was attentive and top rate. Most spectacular, though, were the views. We sat right by the window and enjoyed a view of the Ponte Vecchio at night - amazing! This is a... More

Go for the view and ask for a corner table over looking the river. I didn't have the food so can't comment on that. But the desserts were not par. The tiramisu was mostly mascarpone, a little chocolate with coffee making very brief appearances on your taste buds. The panna cotta was significantly better, but could have used more of... More

Located literally just around the corner from the Ponte Vecchio with a great view of both the Ponte Vecchio, the Arno and the Uffizi Galleria. The menu is both traditional, or rustic or modern. The wine list is extensive and the food delicious. Very, very pleasant experience.

After waking around the city in the afternoon after proposing to my girlfriend, we chose this restaurant to celebrate our engagement. We were not disappointed with a window table overlooking the Arno & Ponte Vecchio bridge. The food was excellent, with attentive but unhurried service from polite, helpful staff. The Irish coffees are a must and certainly the best we... More

This is really a room with a view! The service was very friendly, the restaurant is very moderne and contemporary. The pizza was ok and the drinks were good. I am not sure if I would return to this restaurant , but it was a nice respite after a nice day in the Oltrarno .

We scored a table by the window with a view of Ponte Vecchio and the Arno. It was worth every euro they charged! We had two glasses of wine and two bruschetta plates that cost us 36euro. The service was prompt and courteous. The seating and ambiance is just amazing. I could have sat for hours watching the rowers, and... More

It has an unfortunately touristy name, but the view really is fantastic (make sure to make reservations a couple days in advance so you get a good table). The food and service are quite good, though it's a bit on the pricey side.
