Description: Coffee is like a portrait of Italy that depicts the desire of its people to get together and spend time chatting, reading, and enjoying traditional dishes. The Caffe dell’Oro, the new Lungarno Collection restaurant bistrot in Florence by the Portrait Firenze hotel, offers all this and more. This all-day-dining Italian bistrot in Florence has the most beautiful view over the Ponte Vecchio. It is a “salon with kitchen”, warm and inviting. But most of all it is a place to appreciate flavours. At the Caffe dell’Oro, Italy’s gastronomic tradition shines in the wholesomeness of the ingredients and in the virtuous simplicity of the recipes. And gold shines too, not just as a thin leaf of light decorating each plate, but because time spend relaxing with friends is the most precious gift.

We spent four nights at the Portrait (to which this restaurant is connected) and ate here once for lunch and once for dinner. The food is great but more importantly the staff is awesome. I don't have enough good things to say about the restaurant. It was certainly a nice change of pace from the pushy waiters and rushed experiences we encountered in various trattorias in Florence.

Great dinner for our wedding anniversary. We chose the 3 glass wine package each (euro25) and the choices made matched our food choices perfectly and we loved the food too. Great little touches such as a handbag stool brought to your table, made us laugh and appreciate the exceptional customer service. Bit pricey, but worth it for a special treat and wonderful views of the Ponte Vecchio (if you craned your neck a bit!).

We had a super evening here. First of all, easy to get to on the river with a taxi and a great view of the Ponte Vecchio lit up beautifully. Very nice ambience in the restaurant, not too pretentious but clearly staffed with a team who are on top of their game. Of course the main point is the food and per the other reviews, it really is very very good. A tip for vegetarians is that many of the meat courses on the menu can also be asked for as vegetarian alternatives so plenty of choice there. Prices are very reasonable considering the city you are in .... but add in the view and the quality of food and I would say that it is good value. Approximately €100 - €120 if you have three courses and a good wine. Final point is that if you have any accessibility issues then this place is great ... easy flat access from pavement / taxi to your seat ... and also a dedicated lift to take you to the restrooms which in an old city is not always the case. Thoroughly recommend.

This restaurant is positioned on the Lungarno D. Acciaiuoli between the Ponte Vecchio and Ponte Santa Trinita bridges.

We were quite fortunate that we managed to be seated in the last two available seats as we hadn’t booked. We saw a groups and couples being turned away due to unavailability, so you take your chance but I would recommend popping in and booking the night before in advance.

This is a Michelin graded restaurant, it is not a Michelin Star restaurant. It has a Michelin grade of ‘Knife & Fork’ plus ‘Plate’ this depicts that the restaurant is quite comfortable serving fresh ingredients, capably prepared with good cooking. Michelin recommends these graded restaurants as ‘Worth a stop’.

You should bear in mind that to receive these grades from Michelin is no easy feat.

The prices, as a result, do not reflect the high end Michelin Star restaurants and our two course each plus a glass of Prosecco and bottle of Aqua Frizzante came to a very reasonable 90 Euro.

The food was well prepared, well presented and well served.

The flavours of each dish were exquisitely flavoured and I complemented the Chef on both of our courses.

We were dressed smartly for the evening, although not overly dressed, I was in short sleeved shirt, trousers and shoes.

However, didn’t seem to be any dress code per se; I saw one diner in knee length shorts.
However, if you are not sure, it is always best to ask when you book.

Very elaborated and nice food. Nice view and selection of music. Cured in detail, from the candleholders to the chair and paintings. The staff was amazing also, very educated, caring and disponibile. Will go back as I have the chance
