In this restaurant I had the best meal of the entire trip to Italy. Chose it based on the indication of a travel book. Earlier on that day we tried to make a reservation, but found out it has to be done at least 48 hours in advance. The book said that if one arrives early, one might be lucky... More

We decided to eat dinner there one Saturday in April. We were looking for dinner with music and that night they had a live 3 piece band playing. Prior to deciding whether to eat there the Manager showed us around the restaurant, which was really nice of him. When we decided to have dinner, we were asked to wait up... More

It does have a super view if you can bag a table at the window. The family has mixed feelings about the food though. Of the 5 main dishes 2 were very good, 2 average and one was actually poor. But the staff was good, service attentive and ambiance great.

The view was great, overlooking the Arno River and the Ponte Vecchio bridge. We were seated immediately, friendly service, great food. I had the saffron and Parmesan cheese risotto which was the best I ever had. Most tables had a great view. Will definitely return.

My boyfriend and I ate here on our last night in Florence (no reservation, just found it across the bridge) and we absolutely loved it. The view was gorgeous and we had our best meal yet for a very affordable price. I highly recommend the four cheese ricotta and spinach ravioli. My boyfriend had the seafood pasta. Both were thoroughly... More

Before i write my review...i must say i am torn because i had a pleasant even very lovely experience and meal here. When making the reservation they ask if you want loud or soft...Guess they have a jazz bar and you can eat in there...i chose the quiet side...Which although you could faintly here the jazz...it didn't overpower my ears...

Our family of 5 stopped into Golden View to grab a couple of appetizers and some wine before our dinner reservation and I wish we would have stayed for a full meal! The service was great, very polite and attentive. It's been a month since we've returned so I can't remember everything we ordered. We all enjoyed the cheese plate,... More

Had a nice dinner here. If you book ahead and get a window seat (an absolute must here) and are here for sunset, the views of the Arno and the Ponte Vecchio are fantastic. We started out with the warm seafood salad which was excellent, and the wild boar pasta which was just OK. The clams with spaghetti came in... More
