In the North End of Boston there is an overwhelming array of Italian restaurants. Picking one was daunting; high ratings for many on Trip Advisor. We had walked by Cafe Florentine mid day and paid attention to the plates of food being served to tables in the windows. Later we did so again and decided to go in. The aromas... More

I took my husband here for his birthday dinner while staying in Boston. The food and service were outstanding. The lobster ravioli was out of this world! The whole evening was delightful because of the quality of the food and service. Thank you so much for making my husband's birthday so special.

Asked the hostess for a window seat. My 82 year old Mom and I a waited across street drinking coffee at small table and after ten minutes she waved us over. Enthusiastic waitress made meal fun. Food was incredible. Fruiti de mare salad, split lobster/butternut ravioli and rolled chicken - fantastic. Great wine recommendation. Would highly recommend

I was standing in the bar with two other people ( i was not drinking) someone either on the street or in the bar whistled real loud. The bartender assumed it was me and I was physically removed from the bar and thrown into street. I would not set foot in this place or recommend this place to anyone. I... More

If you visit the North End, you must eat here. Was with a group and we had the Lobster Ravioli and the Linguini with Scampi. Both were amazing. The bread and olive oil before lunch was great. Staff was wonderful and attentive. Can't wait to go back!

During the summer, wait for a table along the windows. They open up the windows on nice days and it is fun to be alongside the sidewalk as you eat. Our rever was enthusiastic about the menu, and we chose three terrific dishes. This was my third trip to the restaurant, I've never had a bad meal. Whenever I am... More

This place is outstanding. The open windows feel as though you are eating al fresco. The gnocchi and lobster ravioli are fantastic. The only suggestion is to open up a little space as it gets a bit cramped. Be sure to go to Mike's for a plain cannoli after dinner.

This isn't the first time my family and I have dined at Florentine Cafe and it certainly won't be the last. Every year we visit Boston and make sure we have dinner here because of it's outstanding food, service, and atmosphere. The staff is always friendly and they make it their goal to please you. If ever in Boston and... More
