“Great food and pleasant service”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Clean and modern feeling to the place. Once the servers came, they were pleasant, great food, a little on the pricey side, but the view was pleasant to see Ponte Vecchio.

“Best meal of the trip!”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

We hadnt read any reviews on this place and after looking it up on TA i'm shocked that it's not ranked in the top 25. This restaurant has a fantastic position overlooking the Ponte Vecchio. The staff were friendly and spoke clear English. There was a huge choice of classic Italian cuisine. We hadn't booked a table but the manager found us a fantatsic table with a great view. The wine list was substanial and whilst we chose we were given a complimentary glass of Prosecco. The quaility of the food was fantatsic and the ambience within the restaurant was great. I would recommend visitng this place again and again. Don't be fooled by the rating, it really is brilliant.

“Eating and drinking well plust a view of the Arno”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

We decided to have dine here after four hours at the Ufizzi Gallery. We read a few reviews of this restaurant and it was perfect. They happily sat us at the corner window and enjoyed a leisurely lunch as we discussed the highlights of the sculptures and paintings we just saw . Our meal and local wine they served us was all delicious.The price of the entire meal (and we did not skimp) was very reasonable and the service was excellent. Thumbs up!

“Good food, great view”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

After a week of cooking for ourselves in the farmhouse, we decided to dine out on our first evening in Florence and Golden View was just along the street. It was a busy Saturday evening but they found a table for four close to the window so two had views across the river. Yes, this is a trendy, contemporary place very close to the Ponte Vecchio so prices are a bit high and our foursome increased the average age of the customers. Yet we were well pleased, even impressed by the dishes were chose. The wine list is good and the service appropriately attentive. We loved the singer and her back up musicians.

“Excellent restaurant with perfect service”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

We had a romantic dinner in the Golden View restaurant, yesterday (following a recommendation from a local). We were a bit skeptical as the restaurant is located closely to Ponte Veccio with a super-touristic view onto the night river. However, we were deeply impressed and all our skepticism had gone in a minute. Food was great and service was outstanding (thank you, Andrea). The interior and view were far less touristic - but provided a perfect setting for a romantic evening. Prices were high but not to the extend that we expected - and absolutely worth it.
