We did a very small courthouse wedding (2nd time around) for just us and our kids... but we wanted to end the night with something special - so we opted for dinner at Firenze Trattoria. Although they were busy they got us settled in quickly. All of the staff from the hostess to the servers were amazingly nice. Our kids... More

This is a popular restaurant on Friday and Saturday nights so it is good to make reservations. We made them but still had to wait because the people at our table were lingering over coffee. The staff was great and continually updated us. Once we were seated, our waiter was wonderful, very helpful and pleasant. I ordered the Butternut Squash... More

We tend to eat here in spurts, always at the bar. Food is quite good, wines by glass are good value too. Staff remember you.

I love this restaurant for authentic Italian food. The service is great and the food is awesome. Several of the waiters are Italian, and do speak Italian, if you want to get some Italian language practice in. They have a wonderful variety of soups, salads, pastas, fish and meat dishes. My favorite dish is the vitello Piccata (Veal scaloppini in... More

While the food was good, the restaurant is a throw back to the 60's , dark and dank in need of a fresh make over, other than the food you would never know this is an Italian restaurant with absolutely no atmosphere at all, you think you are eating at just a restaurant. The service was very poor, ever so... More

Firenze has a lovely outside dining area. The service is first rate and the quality of the food is above average. Portions are a bit light, but fortunately their bread is outstanding. Only complaint was the shock when we opened the "NY cheesecake" we ordered to take home. For $12 it was ridiculously small. Other than that, a nice overall... More

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.
