Here are four top restaurants in Florence where you will enjoy delicious specialties while admiring breathtaking views.

Sesto on Arno – The Westin Excelsior, Firenze

The Restaurant & Bar on the sixth floor of The Westin Excelsior, Firenze has been awarded as one of the world’s top seven rooftops. An ultramodern structure with large windows affording a magnificent and complete view of Florence, including, from table 41, a stunning close-up of the Duomo. Among Executive Chef Marco Migliorati’s signature dishes are rabbit and rosemary tagliatella, leek and black truffle cream and braised pork cheek with creamy stone-ground polenta.

Osteria delle Tre Panche – Hotel Hermitage

A culinary experience by one of Florence’s most renowned restaurants for its truffle-related dishes. Located, in fact, on the sixth floor of the Hotel Hermitage, on an intimate terrace overlooking the Ponte Vecchio, is the “spin-off” of the historic Osteria delle Tre Panche, owned by Andrea and Vieri, two craftsmen of taste and masters of the art of enhancing truffle’s flavor and aroma, in particular, the fine San Minato white truffle

Angel Roofbar & Dining – Hotel Calimala

Set on the terrace of the Hotel Calimala’s top floor, between Piazza della Signoria and Piazza della Repubblica, the Angel Roofbar & Dining is one of Florence’s newest places to be. Surrounded by the city’s most iconic buildings, the restaurant offers international-style gourmet cuisine. A journey between the East and West, including Israeli flavors, with a focus on local dishes. We highly recommend the cocktails.

Ristorante La Loggia – Belmond Villa San Michele

Ad now, a short detour outside of downtown Florence, in the green hills surrounding the city, to the restaurant of Belmond Villa San Michele, in Fiesole. A stunningly beautiful location: an ancient monastery with a spectacular wraparound view of Florence on all sides. The cuisine, by the young Executive Chef Alessandro Cozzolino, focuses on the use of local ingredients with great attention to details, including the original, contemporary-style and top-quality chinaware.
