The best dinner in Florence. 😊We went there after two years and I think they got better. I would definitely recommend this restaurant. And additionally, there is nice view on Ponte Vechio. ;)

A stunning bar and restaurant right on the Arno River a short walk from the Ponte Vecchio. Even open for pastries and coffee in the mornings and filled with Italians on their way to work. Then return close to sunset and have steak and a champagne cocktail.

We were recommended to try this place as it had stunning views by the river. As soon as we walked in and were shown a table we knew it was not our kind of place at all. If you want cool, hip, trendy bar, then this may suit you, but for us, when in Italy, we wanted traditional Italian. You... More

A lovely dinner, great view, good service. Not very expensive for that kind of food and wine. No need to book too in advance.

went here at lunchtime scouting places to eat with friends the following day. Really cool looking restaurant with an amazing wine rack towards the back, and open views over the River Arno and the Ponto Vecchio bridge. We didn't come back as our friends wanted to eat outside and this bar doesn't have an outside as it is high above... More

This restaurant was great. Wonderful location along the Arno. Be sure to request a table with a view. The food was delicious. Many local specialties and standard Italian dishes. Service was excellent. We were there on an evening when they had live music. A plus!

On a recent visit to Florence we visited this restaurant, which had been recommended to us. The food and service was really good. We booked a table by the window overlooking the river and this really added to our enjoyment. Very central and well worth a visit. Important to make a reservation and also request a tale overlooking the river.

This restaurant was on a list provided by a friend - which simply said "great pasta" - that description doesn't do this fine restaurant justice. They really do have a beautiful view of the river just the "other side" of Ponte Vecchio. They have an extensive wine list with some priced at 5,000 Euros - we had and excellent Amarone... More

We walked in on a very hot day in Florence to a modern nicely air conditioned restaurant which is rare in this city. Honestly, I was just grateful for the air at this point and not expecting much from the food. I was pleasantly surprised! The food was amazing and the wine list very impressive! We all had antipasta, pasta... More

Situated overlooking the Arno River, and just over the Ponte Vecchio from city centro, this establishment truly offers a fine dining experience. Reservations can be made for lovely tables overlooking the river. Food is excellent, with an extensive wine selection and specialties. Save room for dessert! Wait staff is wonderful. Definitely the place to go to celebrate a special occasion;... 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.
