Description: Lungarno Bistrot overlooks the Lungarno Guicciardini. Its outdoor area opens onto a stunning backdrop of the Scarlatti square right in front of Palazzo Corsini. An excellent opportunity to enjoy this fascinating view for lunch or dinner. Inside, the atmosphere is modern and classic at the same time, cosy and warm. The large open kitchen allows you to see the chef at work. They prepare fresh pasta, different types of bread and desserts every day. Seasonal products are the base of our traditional Tuscan menu, as well as fresh fish. On request we can prepare vegetarians and gluten free dishes.

It is hard to be dining on the river front in Florence! The food and wine are exceptional as is the service. They take reservations and I'd suggest getting one if you want to sit outside. My husband and I had dinner here for our anniversary and it was the perfect spot. Highly recommend the seafood tasting menu!

Great meal and memorable location for a big night. Watching a pink tinged sky over the Arno

We had the seafood tasting menu. Delicious appis one with salted cod and the other with shrimps. The primis were a risotto and a gnocchi both good but not unforgettable. And the main was a melt in the mouth salmon fillet.

The wine recommended by our waiter was a lovely dry white from northern Italy.

Much of the seating is outside, because the restaurant is just next to the Arno River, although there is quite a bit of traffic on the road next to the restaurant. Still, it wasn't too loud and the view was great.

It was very pleasant under the large outdoor canopy. Service was good as was the food, for the most part. My pasta was very good, although my husband's beef dish was a bit hard to eat.

Don't you just hate it when they put things on the Bill you didn't order? You probably won't notice a bottle water (5 euro) more or less... The excuse being: 'The computer....'. Sure, even worse: not human error, but systematic robery: call the police!
FYI: the food was't bad at all. The D.O.G.C. Band on the wine bottle looked tampered with.
Please be my guest, eat and count your fingers afterwards!

Dear Mr Luuk ,
I am sorry to hear such strong words towards us.
I think you really missunderstood our restaurant philosophy, although is nice to hear that you liked our food.
The Lungarno Bistrot is not a place where we try to rob anyone, but a place where people can come to satisfy their palate and relax in a comfortable environment with a very polite service.
Considering the problem that in your bill you have had one bottle of water more than what you have ordered , this is just an human error, it can happen to everyone to make mistakes, and that bottle was taken away with apologies.
Best regards
Francesco Granato

This restaurant was recommended by our apartment host. We had no reservation, but they were able to seat us outside still around 7 pm. We were greeted with a glass of sparkling white wine. Our main courses were wonderful: spaghetti and lobster and the sirloin. The Chianti was a perfect accompaniment. We wrapped up with their apple tartin with a dessert wine paired. It was a bit of a splurge, but well worth it. Service is very attentive as well.
