We are looking for a special restaurant to have dinner at for our one year anniversary while in Florence.
A rooftop with a good view would be nice, however we will be there beginning of October, so obviously that would be weather dependant, so a nice view of Florence while dining inside might be more realistic.
A restaurants that has a pre-set 5 course menu would be an extra bonus.
We are looking to spend $200 or under.
Happy Anniversary! You are so lucky to be spending it in Florence.
My top recommendation for a special evening in Florence is Golden View Open Bar. You can sit inside, and take in the beautiful views of the Ponte Vecchio. Request a window seat in advance! All the food is great, but I particularly love the gorgonzola gnocchi. You shouldn't have a problem keeping this within your budget. Have an amazing trip, and I'd love to hear where you end up going!
I recommend you book a table at La Reggia degli Etruschi, the most beautiful restaurant (& wine cellar) in Fiesole, as well as the perfect destination for a romantic evening ;-) It boasts traditional Tuscan dishes with a creative twist, great wines and a lovely little terrace with breathtaking views over Florence.
Another great one is Ristorante Alle Murate (frescoes from the 14th and 15th centuries + Roman ruins included) but it has no terrace/garden with view.
Hope this may help you
