A former colleague, Richard Santi, hearing that we were travelling to Florence to celebrate my retirement, recommended the Golden View - and we are delighted that he did. Four of us enjoyed a great meal looking out on the Ponte Vecchio and Uffizi Museum with a live jazz trio playing in the background. Excellent service with good recommendations re wine... More

Book a table by a window to enjoy the "Golden View" of the River Arno & Ponte Vecchio. Service started very slowly but suddenly improved to become very acceptable. The food was excellent.

We were ignored by our waiter all evening, after asking for the bill had to wait another 20 minutes to get the bill. We were there for over 2 1/2 hours and only had bruschetta and an entre. The food was very good, but the waiter had too many tables to service. Their was only 2 of us, so I... More

We were graced with the presence of our server a total of five times during our hour and twenty minutes at Golden View. One of which was to out proper steak knives down for us but another server had already... More

A lovely seafood restaurant on the Otrarno. Watching the water, towers, and the Uffizi as the sun set was a treat. The fish was very fresh.

Excellent lunch at a great restaurant with a fantastic view of the river. Had a seafood spagheti which was amazing. Others in group had pasta and none were disappointed. Great service and great wines. Would highly recommend.

We thought we would go out for breakfast and what a good decision that proved to be! Really delicious coffee and pastries and incredibly good value. No wonder it is frequented by locals. A view of the Ponte Vecchio too!

Clearly this place is all about the view. Unfortunately, the food doesn't live up to it and the music is so loud you can't have a conversation.

Walking down from the hill from the statue of David to the Ponte Vecchio Bridge we found this very big restaurant with lots of different rooms and seating areas.

Neighbourhood Profile
Pitti
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.
