Had a very nice meal here on the terrace overlooking the Ponte Vecchio. There is scaffold work around the building at the moment - so the view is a little obstructed - but it isn't a game breaker. Carpaccio with truffles was awesome as was the braised pigs cheeks. Desserts were excellent. Service was attentive, efficient and good humoured. It... More

We had a magical evening here seated at a table next to the open door facing the ponte vecchio. Lovely view which was unfortunately spoiled by the scaffolding in front. Regardless the food was fantastic, the wine was great and our waiter Dario was brilliant and charming. Definitely recommended.

We were taken as guests of our local hosts for pranzo over the Ferragosto weekend. As we were four, we couldn't have the table open to & overlooking the Arno, & had to settle for one closed in as it had scaffolding in front, but this was the only downside. As we were guests, we didn't get to see the... More

Salmon tartar (pointless), spaghetti with clams (no taste of 50pc shells with 20pc clam meat). Tiny portions but good service. Nice Jazz on 15th of August. Not value for money.

We stopped by for some drinks and ordered 3 Aperol Spritz and asked for a recommendation for the 4th drink. A charming waitress suggested a passion fruit concoction which supposedly had vodka in it. When our drinks arrived the Spritz's were just okay, we have tasted better and as for the passion fruit concoction it tasted just like a fruit... More

While in Florence recently we visited this restaurant twice. The first time was superb in every way. We were greeted at the door, the staff and service were excellent, the food amazing and the jazz was good. We therefore decided to go again on our last night when we were not greeted on the door and stood for a while... More

We had a very nice meal with a fabulous view of Arno river. When we arrived, we were greeted by a very friendly waiter with a glass of champagne and seated by the window. The evening started very nicely; however, as the restaurant got more busy, we couldn't understand a word anybody was saying because it got uncomfortably loud. I... More

Seafood linguini was great as was veal and risotto. I would skip the grilled vegetables. Good service, nice view. We thought the jazz duo could only work as waiters in New Orleans. Local seemed to enjoy it though.

My family visited Golden View on our first trip to Florence seven years ago. It was so good, we went back the very next night. Amazing food and wine on the balcony overlooking the Arno and the Ponte Vecchio. I've remembered it all of these years as one of my favourite restaurants ever, so when I was back in Florence... More
