A rare pearl among our careful selection of the best addresses right now

Un luogo riservato, intimo, elegante e raffinato custodito in una villa neorinascimentale costruita nella seconda metà dell’800 in uno degli angoli più suggestivi di Firenze: il piazzale Michelangelo. Il ristorante dell’hotel Villa La Vedetta è un piccolo scrigno di grazia. L’eleganza delle sale, finemente arredate nei toni del bianco e del grigio, è il leit motiv della location. E si ritrova anche nei piatti, con un menu raffinato in cui niente - dall’accostamento degli ingredienti alla loro presentazione - è lasciato al caso.

Ogni proposta è realizzata con prodotti di stagione del territorio. Imperdibile il flan di stracchino, il raviolo di zucca gialla e le carni: dal filetto di manzo al pepe rosa al petto di faraona laccato al miele. Straordinaria la selezione di vini, con le migliori etichette del momento.

    Found this place over the internet. We were looking for a special place and not one of those “please tourist, come in, have a pizza, a cheap wine and then leave” restaurants. This was absolutely what we have been looking for. Excellent view, friendly and professionell personell and great food. It is one of these restaurants where you would expect someone to propose to his girlfriend. Coming back again: thank you.

    The lighting was very bright that air conditioner was very loud and the entire place was filled with a cloying perfume. For somewhere with so much potential and such a view it was wasted. Go to Locale Firenze instead!!!

    Impeccable hotel venue with its lavish gardens and pool facing a stunning view. We had our lunch on the verandah and even though there was a bridal party having a dry run of their vows we didn’t mind the loud chatter because we were just so happy with the beautiful setup of our reserved table. The food was delicious and my husband and baby were both so happy. They didn’t mind little Jake having his own infant food (with no salt of course) and my Husband and I ate peacefully in the stunning sun and background. We’ll come back hopefully next time to stay at the hotel too the reception was so laid back and casual. We really loved being there!

    Pleasant dining experience, largely due to the five-star hotel surroundings. Otherwise, you can have a better tasting meal in the local Florentine bistros.
