If you are visiting San Francisco and get tired of the regular tourists traps... Firenze was recommended by a local as one of their favorite places for authentic Italiano. We skipped the seafood as it was flown in but the pasta plates were outstanding! The resturant is off the main drag but if you are a foodie, the meals make... More

Wondering why this place has so many good reviews? Friends and family perhaps? Seafood was sandy, cocktails were fishy, service was spotty.

Our meal at Firenze by Night was very memorable. Our Italian waiter made us feel very welcome and he was very charming as well. We were a group of six and we ordered many different items from the menu. All our meals were exceptional. The short rib dinner was delicious. I loved the Italian Carmel custard dessert, too! Definitely make... More

We came to San Fran four years ago and stumbled upon this neighborhood gem of a restaurant, it was the first place returned to when we arrived. You will not find better food or service anywhere in the city.

Just a block away from the more trendy, touristy Italian restaurants on Columbus Avenue in North Beach. More of a neighborhood place. But delicious. Took business colleagues with me who all had eaten at a 5-star restaurant the night before. But all said this meal at Firenze was better. Gnoochi very light and fluffy. This is now my go-to restaurant... More

Was recommended by our hotel concierge as a 'traditional' place that was his personal fav, and was about the food not the social scene. Did not disappoint at all! Gnocchi was absolutely fantastic! It was light and buttery with a nice light red sauce that made you want more. If was in town longer (48 hrs) would have gone back.... More

We visited this restaurant on a recommendation on the city tour we took. We were not disappointed. It's a small place but has a lovely warm atmosphere . An authentic Italian with a beautiful mural of Florence on the wall. Good service. Reasonable prices. We had pasta and it was great. My husband actually said it was the best he's... More

This isn't a fancy schmacy italian place where the beautiful people go to be seen. This is an authentic italian restaurant with classic food, great service, and a very nice wine list. My gnocchi were good but my husband's veal ravioli with wild mushroom sauce was divine.

Very authentic service in this place. Friendly staff. The food was well prepared but not "mind blowing". If in the area again I might venture and try something different. Again...nothing bad just not compelling enough to call it a "must do" when in San Fran. I had the house gnocchi and son had homemade fettuccini alfredo.

The reviews are correct--this is like eating in Florence or Venice, but without the transatlantic flight! Gnocchi to swoon over, DELISH eggplant, and a waiter as Italian as daVinci!! Loved it and can't wait to return!
