Overlooking the Ponte Vecchio

This is a modern restaurant with a number of seating areas, butting on to the Arno right next to the Ponte Vecchio. Food is modern, well presented and of a good quality. Staff are helpful and some can speak english. Nice place for a nice lunch. Wasn't in for dinner. Not too pricey for lunch.

The view of the Ponte Vecchio is lovely. The restaurant offers jazz 2 nights a week and morning cafe and pastry are delightful. However, the high dinner prices do not match the quality of the cooking.

This is a great location, right near Ponte Vechio. They reserved a table for us on the terrace with the beautiful view of Ponte. We had oysters, prawns and spaghetti with seafood. Great diner accompanied by a nice wine on the waiters suggestion. Highly recommend.

I was a little concerned this place would be too hipster for our family, but the restaurant is modern, large and very comfortable. They gave us a lovely window table, which had a little privacy from the neighboring tables. The view of the Ponte Vecchio is unforgettable and the service was very, very nice for a tired family of 5.... More

Cross the Ponte Vecchio, walk a block or so and you're at "The Golden View". You can eat outside at sidewalk tables or inside at a table by the water and have a wonderful view of the Arno and the Ponte Vecchio. After dark the lights are beautiful. The service is attentive and the food is delicious.

We stumbled upon this bar in the early evening and had apperitvo on the bar side. We were able to sit right up next to the open windows with a beautiful view of the Arno river and the Ponte Vecchio bridge. Apperitivo and cocktails were delicious and a cheaper option than the dining room.

I tell all my friends to go here with your visiting Florence. It is a little expensive and I do not feel the food is a great deal better than a lot of notes and crannies you can find in Florence, but the food is good and the view is on believable. Set right on the Arno River across Ponte... More

The Golden View Open Bar was INCREDIBLE. The food was beautiful. We had a table right by the window, overlooking the Ponte Vecchio and it was just the perfect night. Would HIGHLY recommend to those going to Florence. A highlight of our whole Europe trip.

We were recommended to have a dinner in this place by a seller from one of the shops. She told us its fancy place with beautiful people. To tell the true we had a higher expectations because the day before we went to sesto lounge bar that was perfect and thought the golden view is the same style. But no!... More

We were given the name of this restaurant by the staff of our hotel and it was everything and more than they said : great view, friendly staff, beautiful decor (I loved the artwork and regret not purchasing one), very clean toilets and delicious food. We discovered a bar area which served tapas style nibbles with an adjoining room to... More
