This is our go to local restaurant for great food in a nice quiet atmosphere. We love the Cioppino there. THE BEST we've ever had. Service is good. If you happen to be there when there is live music, that is a bonus! I highly recommend this place for great Italian food! Portions are very generous so no risk of... More

The trattoria is very out dated Resturant with a very old crowd. The Burrata cheese appetizer was bitter. The fettuccini was dry, the pesto was runny, and the shrimp salad was bland, the wine by the glass was very average . The service was good. To make it all the worst, the price was quite high for the area. Overall... More

Popped in on a Monday night on a whim. How lucky for us it was half price wine bottle night! We chose to sit in the lounge area as hubby wanted to watch the game on tv. The menu is extensive, the options are limitless, the staff are very accomodating. It was especially nice to try a wine we might... More

My husband chose Firenze for his birthday dinner last month. We sat on the patio with a few friends who were there for the 1st time. We all really enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere near the fountain. It was so nice that we almost didn't need the heater. The service team was on point but not overwhelming, which was perfect. We... More

Four of us really enjoyed our meals here. I got a veal dish and my husband got osso bucco which was the special of the evening. Also, someone at our table ordered the lasagna which he said was delicious. The bread basket was very good and included bread sticks. We enjoyed the desserts and our server was outstanding. We ate...

Every time I come to Firenze Trattoria I thoroughly enjoy my experience. Everything seems to be thought out and in place. The food is amazing as well! Their menu has a lot of classic Italian dishes with some new variations, and the specials list is always a treat. I really like how they offer gluten-free pasta for their dishes (it... More

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
