We feel the 40 minute(at non peak hours) drive from La Jolla worth it. Ambiance is warm, cozy, and menu contains all your favorite Northern Italian dishes served by excellent wait staff. Many dishes we split and the drinks and wines are first rate. On a warm night try the patio.

This restaurant appears to be very popular, and apparently highly rated. We live close by, and have been only a couple of times. Decided to go for an anniversary recently. Cocktails and wine appeared very pricey. Food was good, but wish they would have had more authentic Italian pasta dishes. Prices for entrees seemed inline, but with drinks beforehand, pumps... More

When my family and I got to Firenze, it looked promising. There was nice decor, and a cool fountain. However, we got our menus and the lighting was so dim we could not see. When we finally ordered drinks, it took 10 minutes just to bring them out. Afterwards, it took another 20 minutes just to order the food, and... More

We had been told this place had a truly great lasagne. Turns out they were right. It was served in a huge portion, lovely bechamel sauce. Nice wine list, try a Super Tuscan with the lasagne, have the waiter decant it - that really brings out the meat flavors. The desserts were very good too - I tried the Bourbon... More

I am a retired businessman. When I had my company, I demanded excellence from my business, employees, and especially myself. This is why Firenze is my favorite restaurant. Excellent service, fantastic quality, wonderful atmosphere. Great place to relax and enjoy a meal and take as much time as needed, never feeling rushed. The staff remembers me each time I go... More

My husband and I were on a vacation to San-Diego. We were staying in Encinitas and were loooking for good Italian food. We looked on Google and found Firenze. We were thrilled to have such great food, terrific, friendly service in a great setting! We highly recommend this restaurant to anyone living in the area or passing through San Diego.

My son, friend and I went to experience this place we have been driving by for years. What a mistake. Now I know why my friends never suggest it as a good place to dine. The food was overpriced and mediocre. The drinks high. I don't even think they made the food there is was so poorly done. Everything was... More

I've been on a hunt for the best San Diego Italian Food... and although little Italy is the home of pasta in San Diego, I think I've been missing out - that is until I found Firenze Trattoria.... I loved everything about it from the fresh bread with olive oil and balsamic vinegar to my favorite, favorite part, the Salmon!... More
