In the past dined here often and to full satisfaction. It was always a pleasure to eat here when visiting Florence. Unfortunately our visit early September made us decide that it has also been our last visit to this restaurant. Of course the view was...still golden but the service is far below par and the kitchen has also sacrificed quality. Luckily Florence has many many other options for a great dinner!!More

I always go to this restaurant every time i visit Florence. It is one of my favorite. It has the best view by the Arno. We got lucki enough to get a beautiful table by the river. The staff was amazingly friendly with us… Simone...give us a warm welcome, Paolo proposed an amazing menu degustazione that was finely paired with an excellent Sicilian white wine, and Angostino recommended us the most tasty spaghetti with breadcrumbs, burrata anchovy sauce. The food was so tasty - my boyfriend said that it was the best meal he had in italy! Definately recommended as it is so hard to find such a quality place in the centre of a tourist city.More

The food was very good and well prepared. The presentation was beautiful. I was impressed with the fresh delicious bread presented before dinner, still warm from the oven. This is a nice touch. The local chardonnay TG was delicious. We had ravioli, linguine, storione, spaghettoni,...and we shared, everyone was pleased. The view is charming. That was a marvelous evening. The service was also good. Definitely recommendedMore

Nothing new to add about the location - if you can get an outside table, the view is great. Nice ambiance, friendly service. Unfortunately both my starter and main course took ca. 30 minutes to come out, I think they straight up lost my main...course order. They were apologetic and gave a discount on the final balance, but it was still annoying. Prices are on the high side, even though the food was good, if not outstanding.More

This is relatively a new place right on the riverbank of River Arno where sitting on the window you can feel it is a part of the backdrop. It has a nice wine bar, the food is pretty good and though we were in a...large group service was rather nice. Chef did an excellent job of bringing out delicious dishes. Wines were from a couple of producers of Chianti Classico but several other bottles popped up on our table. An excellent evening it turned out to be. Very romantic place for a couple or friends. I recommend a window seat though.More

Had such a fabulous night in this restaurant with beautiful views of the ponte vecchio bridge. Great service and live music playing. The vegan options were limited but spaghetti pomodoro and the potato and rosemary soup were delicious. It would be great if they could...expand on their vegan options, especially on the dessert front aswell. Would definitely recommend a night here.More

Good for breakfast and lunch and dinner. Right on the Arno. Has both stand-up cafe service (very inexpensive!) at high-top tables and bar, and sit-down waiter service which is more but still a good deal. Has a 15 euro breakfast which has enough food for...two.(yogurt with fruit, scrambled eggs, toast, and coffee). YA good location and a good value.More

We found this restaurant by chance as it was near our hotel and went twice in a 4 day stay. Food was different, high quality although not cheap. Try the home made green ravioli as a starter-lovely dish. Range of prices for wine and the...only question would be some of the tables are tightly packed together and I ended up fighting with a pillar. Quality of food is in some ways better than the view!More

We went here for lunch and it was delicious - we had booked and requested a window table, so overlooked the Ponte Vecchio it was just like the picture! We were having a special lunch so price wasnt an issue but in any case we...felt that with wine and a pre lunch drink 100 euro was good value for the quality of the food we had. Good sign that locals were eating there too.More

Room one is the more romantic,and more scenic for sure. Room three is future into the restaurant,with less vision of the Ponte Vechio, and the Uffuzi gallery across the river. Enjoy your meal , the food ,and service are... More
