“Great food, better view!”
Reviewed August 15, 2013 via mobile

Booked this restaurant weeks ahead to make sure I got a table at the window which certainly lived up to expectations. Staff were very friendly and helpful, menu had lots of choice and everything looked great. I'd go back tomorrow if I could but there's no doubt a table at the window makes this a restaurant to remember. Loved it!

“Excellent View with good Italian food & music”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

Food in good quality & nice layout. We've ordered the seafood plate, hem & melon, pizza, grill beef & the delicious dessert. 4 of us, 40euro each.
Very beautiful sunset view with live band music. Very good atmosphere! Will come back for sure!

“Refreshingly Great!”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

As a tourist, you walk by this restaurant, and you think this is just another ordinary tourist trap, they have this window outside where you can see the fish of the day. However, it is when you walk inside that you realize this is not just another restaurant, this is a little hidden gem ready to amaze you with amazing food and wait till you get a table by the window, it will just made your day!
Gotta love this place, great service, clean and modern design unlike the rest of the places you are used to see when you think of Italy. The wine is fantastic, the menu will leave you speechless (it did for me). You will notice quiet a few locals visiting this spot, so don't be surprise if you start feeling like a local yourself.
Another great secret is that this restaurant was part of a set of an Italian movie, which made it even more intriguing to dine here.
If in Florence...you must check this place out.

“Cool Place”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

It is a nice place that overlooks the river Arno and Ponte Vecchio . It is at the other
bank , opposite Galileo Museum . It is a
cool place with elegant decoration in white, colourful paintings on the walls
and live jazz . When I had dinner , there
was a trio formed up by a piano , drums
and a guitar . I chose this restaurant
because I love Jazz . But the room did
not meet the necessary conditions and
music sounded more like loud noise , than
music itself. So I enjoyed my food which
was nice and tasteful and rushed out . I
presume that if the owner just invested on
that room to make music more enjoyable ,
it would be perfect .
