The travel guide we had called this restaurant, nosy & touristy, but we were hungry and decided to try it. Wow! Are ever glad we did! It was quiet and reserved. The staff was very professional and attuned to every detail. The food was outstanding and the view of the Arno and the Ponte Vecchio was superb. It is hard... More

Caught in the rain and having read about jazz at this restaurant, we decided to stop and have dinner. View was amazing as we watched a thunder and lightening storm. Dinner was good, can't really remember what we ate....so it wasn't bad, but wasn't fabulous. Wine list is over the top. very few bottles of wine under $100 euros. And... More

Close to Ponte De Vecchio, this restaurant/bar is a terrific find. The Florentine steak is delicious. It is open from noon, and has a variety of Florentine dishes with good pasta, an extensive wine list and a welcoming atmosphere.

This is a beautiful restaurant located across the Ponte Vecchio on the Oltrarno side of the bridge. Lot of tourists go here. It is a really nice restaurant with a great menu overall-this is for a nice dinner and I think they serve lunch. The view to the Arno River is fantastic. (You almost go here for the views) I...

Recommend and reservation made by our hotel. Great location with fabulous view of Florence lake. But here it stops as service was the worst I have seen and felt. We were offered bread but no plates to put them on. I have to ask twice for a knife for my wife as it wasn't available from beginning. The food is... More

Great view if you are given a seat by the window looking out at the Arno. We had an early lunch here. Food was ok...wine pours were small and overpriced. Still glad we stopped just for the view.

This place was fantastic!! The food was to die for, the service was excellent and the vibe of the restaurant was really fun and upbeat (made by the fantastic jazz bar). I would highly recommend this place!!

Slow service, short pours, and high prices. But that view...oh that view! Honestly I have no regrets - the trade off is worth it.

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.
