Make sure you reserve a table by the window for a beautiful view. The food is beautiful and although a busy place the service is good. We visited 9 years ago and were glad to be back!

We reserved a table by the window and had a truly marvelous time. The views (up, down, and across the Arno) were fabulous. Surprisingly, the food and wine were just as good! We also had an adorable waitress from Russia who spoke perfect Italian and English and yet let us practice our halting Italian with her. I had the winter... More

My girlfriend loved it. I however, couldn't stand the food. I usually think that I can't go wrong with expensive restaurants, but on this occasion I was wrong. The only thing that I found edible from everything that I ordered, was the chicken liver. I left the tuna untouched, disgusting. The service was ok.

I would not recommend this for anyone dining alone. I was ignored. Food was okay but prices high. Beautiful view of Ponte vecchio.

Whether going for a meal or just aperitivo this place is worth a visit for the setting and view. Yes the cocktails may be pricey but you get what you pay for and the aperitivo food was excellent. Great decor and service

This modern restaurant, cafe, bar is a white warren so close to the Ponte Vecchio you couldn't get closer unless you were on it. We had an excellent, if slightly pushy waiter, who recommended some dishes and a bottle of local wine. The dishes of the day were just that and the Amberjack with courgette and mint sauce was delicious... 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.
