Great atmosphere

My family really enjoyed this restaurant! Quiet and elegant! Great food! Grilled swordfish and chicken parmigiana were excellent! Would come again!

Before the blizzard hit, we decided to stop by Florentine Cafe as our "last meal". ;) No particular reason, it was just near our apartment. Our waiter didn't seem very knowledgeable but he was nice. The food took a very long time to arrive even though there was only one other person in the restaurant. It paid off when I... More

We went here for lunch with our son and daughter in law and sat at the bar. Our bartender was attentive and gave great service. Two of us got the lobster ravioli and we both loved it. My husband had a sandwich which came with a salad and he gave it to me. It was excellent and had a homemade... More

Great Italian restaurant in the center of little Italy. Good value, quantity, tastes, and service. I would recommend this cafe to anyone.

The restaurant itself was decorated for Christmas and was absolutely gorgeous! On the other hand the service was not good at all, everyone seemed angry and pissed to even be working. Our waitress was very nice, but didn't seem happy to be there. The food was ok. Nothing very special-the pizza was the best part. The VERY best part was... More

Visited midweek for lunch with a friend. Large portions, actually took half home for my evening meal. Nice menu selection. Waitress attentive, but not over bearing. Only negative, tables for two are miniscule, had to juggle things around so as not to knock off the table. Do recommend & would not hesitate to go back.

I am appalled by what happened at the restaurant on Saturday, the 29th of November 2014. Having frequented Florentine Café many times before, my wife and I entered the restaurant to end the evening with cocktails. We were not welcomed by anyone at the door, and proceeded to the bar. Unable to find a spot, we helped ourselves to an... More

This was the WORST experience of my life. We arrived at 9pm for drinks, there was no hostess/ waitress to greet us and as the bar area was full we seated ourselves at a table. After a few minutes a waitress arrived and told us we can't sit there unless we were eating. We explained that their bar was full... More

The Florentine Cafe turned out to be a nice stop for lunch while touring the north end of the Freedom Trail. The food was good and the service average. The atmosphere was nice with open air windows on the street side. The menu has plenty to choose from with reasonable prices. Would eat there again but with so many other... More
