Beautiful view, great food and service

Be sure you ask for a table by the river when you make your reservation. Lovely, romantic view. The lamb was among the best I've had. I was concerned after reading the reviews, but I found them to be unfounded. We were quite pleased with our meal, though it was pricier than most of the other... read more

Sitting in the air conditioned space, cooling down from walking around the hot city, with a Spritz or something else you know you found the perfect place in Firenze. From six pm they also offer the 'buffè", or tavola calde with very nice free finger foods.

My wife chose this romantic spot while on our honeymoon. You'll need to make a reservation to secure a nice table with a view of the river and Ponte Vecchio. Make no mistake about it, the menu is expensive. However, it does provide a few affordable options for those who are conscientious of their spending. We shared a very good... More

This is one of the best meals I have had in Italy so far. The pigeon was cooked perfectly, the house red is excellent if you are by yourself and do not fancy getting a bottle and the service was impeccable. The view of the ponte only made the food more enjoyable :)

WOW, just wow. Golden View's craft cocktails are incredible - imaginative, decorative, and not to mention delicious. They may be on the pricey side, but it's worth it to go at least once for the experience. Also, if you go during "aperitivos" the price of your first drink includes the endless buffet of delicious plates! Cheeses, pastas, meats and fruit...... More

Nice modern restaurant overlooking the Arno and Ponte Vecchio. Made a reservation through "the fork" but they did not have it. We were graciously seated anyway. The food was very good, grilled prawns and a nice bolognese. Restaurant was a bit warm even though they had air conditioning. A good experience!

The Arno river/Vecchio bridge view is great - however only for a couple of tables by the river. For the rest, it is just another restaurant, yet you will be paying the same high price as those few with the good tables. Even with a reservation, we were not able to get a table by the river at the main... More

I've been here twice and went there the second time only because I was very hungry, which made me forget that I had been disappointed with my meal three years earlier. The food is ridiculously overpriced and the portions small and it's nothing special.It's not worth the money. Service is so-and-so. The restaurant is huge and when I arrived there... More

We visit 2x this trip, our first visit was 4 years ago & we're impress with the service & the food given it's freshness in seafood & the view of the river. The service of the today remains the same vs. 4 years ago. Recommend for people who like seafood & steak. Please note the restaurant is on the expensive... More

Neighborhood Profile
Pitti
Pitti is a neighborhood characterized by art and history. Renaissance architecture such as Pitti Palace, which houses five museums alone, introduces visitors to the green lungs of spectacular Boboli Gardens. Any visitor can wander through statues, fountains, and panoramic viewpoints. Around the garden, treasures like the Museum of Natural History of the Specola and Villa Bardini guide guests through Florence as the cradle of the Renaissance. End the day with an aperitif in Piazza della Passera or the more romantic Forte di Belvedere, which offers an amazing panoramic view of the entire city.
