Greasy cold nasty food along with poor service. Dirty tables and the food taste gross. Wait staff is rude and clueless.

Food was very good and fresh. The whole family ordered different varieties of gnocchi and they were all delicious. My advice is to share. The portions are huge so since we were traveling a lot went to waste. Service was great.

Cute old fashioned Italian restaurant. A diverse selection of Italian specialties and specials every day. Taste of the good home cooking in a friends kitchen. Good service, good food and excellent variety. From soup to subs they serve it all.

The restaurant is nice, heavy old NY style Italian decor, dark with loads of Italian music (the songs were great) Offers a to go section and a dining room. Food quality is average+ prices moderate but service was long in coming. I guess a one person table meant a low check average and possible low tip. From what I observed,... More

Stopped here on our way to North Carolina on the advise of Tripadvisor. It's in a strip mall. Not very fancy but the food and the service were both good. Portion sizes are very large. I had eggplant parmesan and my husband had chicken parmesan. Both were very good. My husband said the calamari was very good as well. I... More

Authentic Italian food and helpings that will satisfy even the largest of appetites. The staff are friendly and happy to explain anything you ask about. If you want an Italian dining experience then this is the place to go. If you want a cheap imitation the go to Fazoli's. Don't plan on doing anything after you eat here other than... More

Granted there aren't many Italian restaurants in Florence but that doesn't anything away from Stefano's. The atmosphere is nice, good for dates or family outings. We liked the art and lighting. The bread is delicious. They have the classic Italian dishes, great pizza, grinders, and other specialties. Their dishes are quite large. The prices are a little high: from 12.95... More
