Genreally the food was quite average, paninis, salad. Nothing incredible but everything fresh and very reasonably prices. Good pastries and coffee. Take the menu offer with a wine glass. But of course the main attraction is the amazing vie won the Arno and Ponte Vecchio. We had a window table and had a very nice lunch there.

Had dinner twice in this modern and culinary restaurant in July. Awesome view over the river and the famous bridge. Perfect for a romantic dinner or a 'next level' Italian dinner. Food and drinks are absoluty the best!

Tom enjoyed his suppa de pesce/frute de mare especially. I thought my risotto frutte de mare was very good too. We could have been next to the window instead of one table back had we asked for a table in the window as we saw after dinner when we explored the other rooms of the restaurant.

Great view of the Arno and Ponte Vecchio. Huge wine selection: $15-$2000 / bottle. Great pasta. Immaculately clean. Small cover charge as expected for such a view. Most plates $15-$25. Huge place that can handle lots of groups and easy to find.

Had booked a table at Golden View restaurant for my stay in Florence and it was amazing. The service, food and view were spectacular. On arrival we were given a glass of champagne and was given a seat by the window overlooking the Ponte Vecchio bridge. One of the most amazing places I've had dinner. I wish I could sit... More

It was nice, nicely decorated but this was the mist expensive drink we have had in Italy. We payed 12€ per drink where normally an Apperol spritz goes for 4-5€ We will... More

While the food is nothing special (but in NO WAY bad), to have dinner overlooking the Arno and the Ponte Vecchio is wonderful. The prices are VERY reasonable as well. Seek this place out. While only a very short distance from the bridge, most tourists thankfully do not know this place exists.

I was attracted by the location and hey this is Italy so I can at least have a good pasta.. BUT! I was shocked when I tasted my pasta with tomato and basil sauce.. the pasta was so undercooked and it was raw and hard in the inside.. entree was a 18$ 6 small pieces sardines with weird gazpacho sauce.....

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.
