great food!

I really hate to give Fiorella's the 5 stars it deserves because that will mean more people will come and it will be harder to get in, but 5 stars it has earned. We eat there 3-4 times a month and have never had a bad meal. I have a gluten allergy which they accommodate very well by having... read more

I had worked here as a valet on a few evenings. I had some pizza while working, fantastic, just had to come for dinner. The place was always packed while I was there working and that had to be a sign. I had the veal saltimbocca and it was fantastic. My girlfriend had a seafood dish suggested by our waiter... More

Fiorella's does not take reservations because they don't have to - I've eaten there a few times and have found it busy every time. The menu is quite varied to accommodate most tastes, serving traditional Italian food. Portions are quite generous. The pizza is thin crust with a good range of toppings. The daily specials are particularly innovative. Service is... More

We love Fiorella's for quality Italian fare at reasonable prices. They have a wood burning oven where they make pizzas and roast many of their entrees. I had a roasted Salmon roped with pesto that was superb. The cheesy flatbread and marinara sauce that they start you with is delicious! The one complaint is the small parking lot. They do... More

Fiorella's has become my family's favorite Italian restaurant. The menu is varied -- from terrific pizzas and calzones to fabulous entrees. We've never had a bad meal here. It's always crowded, especially for dinner, but it's definitely worth waiting in line.

A busy and happy Italian restaurant. The food is always consistent and good. the portions are large and the waitstaff, though very busy, are always attentive and accommodating. They certainly are there to please. No reservations taken for groups under 6 people, so be prepared to wait. Nice bar and friendly bartenders. It is our go-to-place when the North End... More

Fiorella's somehow manages to stay packed and make you feel as though you are part of an Italian family in hanging out in the kitchen while you wait for a table. Pro Tip: Be prepared to wait and hang out by the bar while you are waiting. The bar staff are just as friendly as the waitstaff and the Chefs... More

I can openly recommend Fiorella's, everyone knows Italian restaurants are not hype anymore and it's nice to find a good restaurant to enjoy a traditional meal cooked with care. I like to try new things and enjoy experimenting with my food, but I will always rely on the basics when I need to feel comfort. The food is great, nice... More
