A Little Taste of Italy

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

To make it simple, server (Cherry) got our order wrong. Wife had to wait 15 minutes for her correct order (Cherry said it was HER mistake), but when the order arrived, the noodles weren't fully cooked (hurried to get order out?), and she didn't adjust our bill in ANY way......nor did ANY manager stop by to apologize, or to assist...

Having one daughter who is vegetarian and another who is vegan, we are used to looking for restaurants in any city we visit that will have these options on their menus. On this particular recent Saturday, we had the vegetarian daughter with us and decided last minute to meet up in Florence with some other family members for a nice... More

Authentic Italian eats. I love their calamari & seafood pasta dishes. Don't forget the garlic bread & olive oil.
