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

The staff was friendly, food was fresh and great presentation. Our waiter was accommodating, and very personable. Views of the planes landing and taking off make this a unique restaurant.

It's difficult to describe but there were 4 of us for dinner and none of us enjoyed it. The service was......strange I suppose is the best word. The atmosphere is fine however. But for Italian fare, it's really a disappointment. Fish is not fresh, frozen I imagine. Breaded veal was soggy and not well done at all. Even our salads... More

We arrived at Florentino's expecting great things as we had heard it was fantastic. We could not have been more disappointed. It was a Saturday night and when we walked in we realized that there was no waiting area. Not a big deal because we had a reservation, but after about 5 minutes of standing next to someone's table awkwardly... More

In charming Newtown, this small BYOB is very welcoming. The hostess is very enthusiastic describing what is on the menu & her suggestions. The prices are about average. The food is good but overly salted; the portions are small. My pasta with little neck clams were disappointing. The "clams" were minuscule and tough--the red sauce was heavily salted. My husband's...
