I booked this restaurant as a birthday treat and was advised to book early in order to be seated on the small terrace overlooking the River and Ponte Vecchio. This I did, and prior to our arranged date, one of the staff advised me that I should book either 7 or 9.30 as they had two sittings. I booked the... More

The tripe was not great. We did enjoy the ravioli with foam top. My wife enjoyed the pigeon and I had beef which... More

This place.. Ahhh.. I cannot believe they've only obtained ONE Michelin star-- it was absolute perfection!!! Our waiter/waitress {yes, for just the two of us, we had multiples!!} attended to us with intense precision! Our table was RIGHT by the window on the River Arno looking towards PonteVecchio!

The location is excellent. The food is innovative and good. The prices are Michelin level including. €7'cover charge per head, The reason I'd never consider going or suggesting anyone went was three fold. Having sought a river view an annex was opened, not a seat on the balcony overlooking the river as expected. Despite the annex placing a large family... More

I had a chance to have diner with friends at that restaurant. What these guys are serving to call food would not describe what they are doing. This is amazing art, breathtaking and unique. Of course it is pricey but worth any pennyy

One of the worst meals I've ever had. Raw shrimp with peanut butter, pigeon that tasted like it was straight from times square and pink trout that was so fishy I couldn't eat it. I have no idea how this is a michelin star restaurant. So disappointed to have wasted a meal in Italy on this.

I went here last night and the food was incredible. We chose the tasting menu and everything was delicious. The service is also top-notch. After we ate we had desserts and coffee on the patio and the view was breath-taking. I highly recommend this place for anyone that visits Florence.

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.
