I've been here a couple of times and once being on my birthday with my husband. I love the food, atmosphere and the fact that the restaurant is BYOB. I love how intimate and cozy the restaurant which is also why you have to make reservations. My favorite entree is Bob's plate...lots of seafood in pasta with a blush sauce,... More

We went with friends we have not seem in months on a saturday. It was about 12:30 and 2 other guests were dining. Shortly there after 3 more tables were filled. It was quiet and comfortable. The server offered us regular or garlic bread, we chose the latter. I had the Gorgonzola pasta. Very good and a lot of tasty... More

If you've ever been to Francisco's on the River in Washington Crossing, you know what to expect at Florentino's in Newtown. The menu is almost exactly the same, without the additional drive time along the Delaware River. Super cute (and very small) BYOB on State Street in Newtown. As noted, the menu is the same as Francisco's, so the whole... More

We dined at Florentino's last month on a rainy eve. It's a byob, so I selected an Australian wine. We sat on the enclosed terrace area enclosed with large glass pane window walls, which gave us a view of the river. Chatting it up while indulging in Italian onion soup, seafood appetizer and grilled meat entrees, all while catching views... More

In charming Newtown, this BYOB is very welcoming. We were here on a Valentine date night reservations that proved to be a nice night out. With roughly 20 tables the ambiance is very cozy. the food and service were very good. My wife had chopped house salad and I had the ceasar salad. Both were very tasty. I had the... More

Can't go wrong for high end Italian and continental dishes. Small cozy place, do be sure to make a reservation.

A recent anniversary visit proved most enjoyable. Both service and food were very good. Seating is a little cramped and although there is a vestibule no real waiting area is available. For this reason alone reservations are a must. The pasta with bolognse sauce is a favorite.

Florentino's is located on a main street between a lot of storefronts. You can park on the street and enjoy some pleasant window shopping as you walk to the restaurant. I arrived without a reservation, but was fortunate enough to be accommodated by a very helpful hostess who gave a great introduction to the restaurant along with some recommendations for... More

We had dinner for two at 7:30 on a Saturday evening. We had been here years ago and remembered the food to be good. Reservations are a must on a weekend for this busy, overly-loud, neighborhood BYOB. The restaurant is tight, and with no reception area, waiting diners are literally standing with their bodies pressed against the tables closest to... More
