Classy restaurant with superb Italian food

Fiorella's is one of my favorite restaurants. The quality of the food is top notch, the service is good and the prices are reasonable. My only complaint is that it is a small restaurant and it fills up quickly so it is always noisy. I wish the owners would consider an expansion.

The perfect "go to" neighborhood Italian restaurant. Consistently good, large portions, perfectly executed.

We drove past this unobtrusive building for 25 years and never went in until our don tried it and raved about it. Fabulous menu. Delicious creative Italian food. Waits are long and seating is cramped but I can look past it!

We come here often. It has great food, reasonably priced in an informal atmosphere. They even let you order things not on menu (but use to be).

I've never been disappointed at Fiorella's, except maybe with how long the wait can be. They don't take reservations, so arrive early if you mind waiting for a table. All of their food is great. Friendly, helpful staff, the hostess is amazing. I especially like the veal saltimbocca and eggplant. Soups and salads are delicious, and my sisters always get... More

We were in the area to visit Boston College and were looking for a good spot for dinner. What we found was fabulous! Typically you do not really want to see the kitchen in a restaurant; here it is front and center and absolutely impressive. Yes you will wait for your table. The staff is hustling without pushing you out,... More

My parents, my kids (12 and 10), my husband, and I eat at Fiorella's 4-6 times a year (Fiorella's Express in Belmont is closer and always a great value). We all usually order the same food but last night we tried a couple of new dishes. My husband ate the lamb shanks (without risotto, with added broccoli). He loved it.... More

Great selection of Italian wines. Chicken, Veal Parmigana are all above average. They do great desserts; ask for apple crisp with ice cream. Fast and reasonably priced food; wine a little pricey but good.
