I recently visited a new restaurant in Greenwich called Golden View Firenze and was really impressed with everything from the food to the decor. From the start of my visit to Golden View Firenze, I loved the fresh, exciting atmosphere of this very chic restaurant.
Owner Tommaso Grasso also has a restaurant in Florence, Italy. He decided to open a second restaurant in Connecticut after a visit to the area. Tommaso brought chef Francesco Casu with him from Florence, ensuring the food at Golden View Firenze would be a true representation of authentic Tuscan cuisine.
The decor at Golden View Firenze is intimate and based in a clean white palette. The view to the kitchen is open, letting diners watch the chefs prepare fresh dishes, including hand-made pastas. Shelves of wine are a prominent feature of the restaurant’s interior, but it isn’t all for show. The staff are very knowledgeable about the wine and well prepared to offer suggestions.
Just like in any really good restaurant, the food must be the star of the show. Everything we tasted was excellent! I started with a wine mojito, which was delicious. We had a cheese plate and I tried the veal dish as well as an incredible four cheese pasta. My husband had the filet with an amazing dipping sauce. Even the bread was perfect. It really was like eating in Italy. The menu is very well done and I look forward to going back soon!
