The food is basically good. We usually stick with Italian fare. The Chicken Parm, cacciatore, etc. The mixed grill was good, and their tips are good too. The service is usually good, however on our last visit the service was so poor (due to the server) we left a 10% tip, which I can count on one hand the number... More

My husband spent 3 months working in Boston last year & came across this place on a google search. When I went to visit him, it became our favorite place to eat. When my daughter came to visit, it was her fave place as well! Nothing fancy, just good food, variety and service. Recently, I went to RI for a... More

Yes, this is not a "frilly" restaurant, it is in Chelsea for Pete's sakes. BUT, if you are looking for really, really good food and HUGE portions for not a lot of money, go to Floramo's. This place is practically an institution in the area. Their italian dishes are great, their meat dishes are wonderful and the surf and turf... More

The restaurant is right outside the Wyndham Boston Chelsea, but we were so tired when we got in for the day, that we called and asked if we could carry out. They were more than accomodating and the proportions were huge and delicious. Steak tips were amazing! We had enough to eat the next day as well. They are closed... More

1. They do take crediit credits....but I do prefer to tip in cash. 2. Meals were excellent; I had the stuffed eggplant parm., wife had the steak tips and ribs, son had the chicken alfredo and all was way beyond expections, flavor and portions. 3. Service was great, Lorraine is a fantastic server and very interactive. We will go out... More

If you want the best Italian food outside of Boston with flair and neighborhood ambiance, this is the place. You will love the bar tenders, waiters and of course the Floramo's family members. Ravioli at it's best, ribs are amazing and steak tips you will never be able to replace in flavor! Tell them Nancyleah sent you:)

Best steak tips ever. I work nearby and eat hear as often as possible. The atmosphere is nothing to write home about, but that is not why I eat there. The service staff was very friendly and accomodated our large group without reservations.

Food was very good. We had a 45 minute wait on a Saturday night in November so that should tell you how good the food is! The meat literally melts in your mouth. We had the steak tips and they were so tender. I had the haddock because you can only get it in New England and it was fresh.
