The very commercial name of this restaurant, hides the true sophistication of the place. We booked on the day for lunch, and were very lucky to get a window seat. Our waiter was outstanding. He was a true example of Italian style, warmth, and knowledge. We asked him to pick our wine (which he absolutely enjoyed doing). It was was... More

Delicious meal with friends here while spending a few days in Firenze curing our trip to Italy. We enjoyed some amazing mozzarella and luscious, ripe tomatoes as a first course. We had fresh seafood over pasta and it was excellent. The open air setting was lovely and the view couldn't be matched. Our table had a fabulous view of the... More

Five of us dined at Golden View Open Bar on 11/25/16. The atmosphere at GVOB is upbeat and the decor is interesting and more modern than some of the nearby restaurants.This evening featured a live jazz group which added to the artsy ambiance. Our servers were terrific and helpful. The food was well prepared and delicious. I very much enjoyed... More

My husband had crostini with fresh sausage and cheese, Old fashioned Florentine steak with rosemary and light cream sauce. I had the margherita pizza with pear and cheese salad. The food was outstanding quality and the salad was also a piece of art... More

Not worth the money, so expensive just because of the view. We paid 160 euros for 2 persons and one child meal. And in the end they charged us 4 glasses of wine instead of 2 that we actually took! Food is good but def not worth the money!

We went there with a group... we probably went with the wrong expectations but we wanted good pizza and unfortunately there were only 4 options on the menu for pizza so everyone basically opted for the classic Margherita pizza. The quality was excellent and the service impeccable but I would recommend this only for high end dining not for an... More

The meal was superb. Every dish is beautifully presented and the service was beyond reproach. We loved the jazz music as well. Very good wine choices and limoncello to sip post meal. Loved the octopus carpaccio and the salads.

Age eat view of the Arno and the Ponte Vecchio. A great scene which our lunch matched. We were a party of 12 ranging in age from 4 to 69. They adapted their service to fit the needs of the children. The pizza was as good as any we had in Florence. The pasta was excellent. The golden view salad... More

As a solo traveler, it's often difficult to get seated alone at a table in most of the better restaurants even if you mention that you'll be ordering a nice bottle of wine with dinner. Golden View was most accommodating and actually sat me at a window table with a terrific view. The waiter was very attentive and explained the... More

Staying in Pitti

Neighbourhood 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.
