I had to make eye contact just to get the waiter's attention I ordered buffalo mozzarella for starters, this came without olive oil or balsamic vinegar, I waited ever so... More

We returned to the Open View Bar for our 3rd visit this month and we were not disappointed. The White truffle pasta and the steak florentine were amazing. The staff are wonderful and very accommodating when it came to our desire to practice our Italian. Can't recommend it highly enough truly worth the journey.

We enjoyed a relaxing and pleasant lunch at the Golden View. Located steps from the Ponte Vecchio we were seated on the window overlooking the Arno and the Ponte Vecchio. A nice treat. We had very good salads prior to our pasta meals. The Gnocchi with gorgonzola was fabulous. The four cheese ravioli was good. The service was attentive and... More

We stopped in for drinks and a bite to eat after a long day of shopping. We had a table by the window so we could see the Ponte Vecchio and watch the sunset. They had a much better selection of liquor than most restaurants so we were very happy to be able to drink our favorite vodka! My husband... More

The food was delicious and... More

Although the restaurant was recommented for the New Year's Eve dinner, we were greatly disappointed. We had asked for a table with a view and prepaid to reserve it but when we were shown to our table we discovered we were squeezed in a very narrow area which was very uncomfortable. As for the view, it was a privilege only... More

We had lunch. We have been to this restaurant about 5 times before. The location is perfect with a view on the Arno and 20 steps from the Ponte Vecchio. Quality of food is very good. Service is ok. They changed the layout of the tables. I think the tables are now too close to eachother. But overall still worth... More

Ive been travelling through Europe for nearly 3 weeks now and you get bored of hotel food, cafe food etc and home sickness sets in. Then you got to a restaurant that has simple but well presented flavours that revive the taste buds. For me this was Golden View Open Bar. Their take on sashimi was light, fresh, top quality...
