We went to the café area of this very large restaurant. The prices were a little more than what you would pay elsewhere but the gelato was quite nice, if a little on the short side. The staff were a little miserable but I think that seems to be the Tuscan way as we experienced that a lot. The café... More

The setting is gorgeous and romantic. The restaurant interior is modern, service friendly, and the food was really good! We enjoyed our experience from start to finish. Try the mango mousse!

The very commercial name of this restaurant, hides the true sophistication of the place. We booked on the day for lunch, and were very lucky to get a window seat. Our waiter was outstanding. He was a true example of Italian style, warmth, and knowledge. We asked him to pick our wine (which he absolutely enjoyed doing). It was was... More

Delicious meal with friends here while spending a few days in Firenze curing our trip to Italy. We enjoyed some amazing mozzarella and luscious, ripe tomatoes as a first course. We had fresh seafood over pasta and it was excellent. The open air setting was lovely and the view couldn't be matched. Our table had a fabulous view of the... More

Five of us dined at Golden View Open Bar on 11/25/16. The atmosphere at GVOB is upbeat and the decor is interesting and more modern than some of the nearby restaurants.This evening featured a live jazz group which added to the artsy ambiance. Our servers were terrific and helpful. The food was well prepared and delicious. I very much enjoyed... More

My husband had crostini with fresh sausage and cheese, Old fashioned Florentine steak with rosemary and light cream sauce. I had the margherita pizza with pear and cheese salad. The food was outstanding quality and the salad was also a piece of art... More

Not worth the money, so expensive just because of the view. We paid 160 euros for 2 persons and one child meal. And in the end they charged us 4 glasses of wine instead of 2 that we actually took! Food is good but def not worth the money!

We went there with a group... we probably went with the wrong expectations but we wanted good pizza and unfortunately there were only 4 options on the menu for pizza so everyone basically opted for the classic Margherita pizza. The quality was excellent and the service impeccable but I would recommend this only for high end dining not for an... More

Staying in Pitti

Neighborhood Profile
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.
