“Definitely a MUST, even if you would prefer Mc.Donald's kitchen...”
Reviewed September 13, 2011

Wherever you stay at Florence, you should pay a dinner visit at Terrazza Brunelleschi, the roof top restaurant of the famous Grand Hotel Baglioni.
We stood for one week at this hotel, so we became "part of the furniture". Food and wine were excellent with reasonable variety. Prices are on the higher end, particularly at the bar, but it´s much better value than a cappuccino for 8.- € at San Marcos place at Venice...
The views over down town Florence are absolutely smashing and the discreet live music, a one-man show, makes a summer evening very romantic. Waiters are very professional, even a bit oldfashioned, like the whole place.
Make reservation in time, sometimes it's difficult to get a place.
If you are guest of the hotel, don't forget to take the voucher for 10% discount from your writing desk, as nobody would tell you this feature!

“Random food, delirious prices”
Reviewed September 1, 2011

I stayed at the hotel below, so I tried the restaurant.

Te only worthy element is the service.
I went with my wife. Terrace is huge. Place was nearly empty and they placed us right next to an other couple. Intimacy over.
The view: no view from the terrace, since it's covered with plants.
Food: very random. I tried the Florentian T-Bone. Basic meat paid 29€. That hurts.
I also had a cold tomato cream. Very random.

“Great views of the city”
Reviewed August 8, 2011

1st class staff, old world charm & elegance. Tonight I had risotto and my wife had king prawns. Great bar too if you just want cocktails with a sunset.
