We were in town on business and our company took us to this restaurant for dinner. Therefore, I cannot comment on the prices of the food. However, a glass of wine was around $7.50, so it wasn't priced too much out of line with other restaurants. Salad was not really what I prefer, but was good. The bread was excellent.... More

If you want a large portion of uninspiring looking and tasting pasta then this might be for you. The waiter was dismissive the food inelegant and the wine which the waiter promised was so good he would drink it himself was dire ...hope he enjoyed what we left. We were in and out in 30 minutes and took ourselves round... More

It's like going to Italy for the night to have dinner with your Italian uncle Sergio. I have not been to this restaurant in 19 years. Sergio hugged me and asked about my family, like it was last week. The food is amazing. Have the gnocchi. it gets very crowded. If you like quiet dining. Go later, or get the... More

Firenze was chosen for its location near to Beach Blanket Babylon, but it is a spot one would go to just for the wonderful food it serves. My chiropractor had recommended it when I was moaning about the fact that eggplant parmesan is an order from the past in most East Bay restaurants. Not here. The best I have ever... More

We have been dining at this restaurant for years! The ambience and service has not changed! Sergio has been over the years taken care of customer like family! His son Paulo follows well in his foot steps! The dishes are always excellent! Pasta dishes are the way mama use to serve! I continue to be a customer because the food... More

Very good pasta in nice atmosphere. I had hard time to understand the waiter's Italian or was it English but that was my fault since I'm not native Italian or English speaker and I'm in the Italian district of San Francisco. It helped a lot to give the perfect atmosphere. Had Lingione vongole that was excellent and som well matched... More

We went to Firenze on recommendation of our hotel concierge when we asked for a good Italian restaurant in North Beach. We were given three to choose from and Firenze fit our taste best as we were looking for traditional fare. We were seated quickly even without reservations. This was probably due to us picking an early dinner hour. The... More

Fettuccine with wild mushrooms was absolutely perfect. The award winning gnocchi was ok, but not great.. Needed a little more sauce or something. The mozzarella salad was excellent! Although the spumone was not made in house, it was great. Nothing like great traditional italian .
