A neighborhood home cooking Italian restaurant where you are greeted by the most enthusiastic hostess you will find in NYC.The menu presents really wonderful temptations even for the diners who have seen it all. The octopus (polpo) salad was a great starter for two, while the gnocchi was a winner with the most tender filled pasta we've encountered under the... More

Fiorini is a very nice restaurant run by grown ups for grown ups. Food is lovely. Service is professional and nice. Room is attractive and you can hear yourselves talk. And it's a good sized restaurant so you're not on top of each other. In all, a very nice neighborhood restaurant and we shall return.

Fiorini is a great choice for reliable Italian food in a quiet, civilized setting. The tables are far enough apart to ensure that you can carry on a pleasant conversation without having to shout. Although the feeling off the place is slightly old fashioned, the menu is surprisingly fresh and inventive. This is not your typical red sauce, veal parm,... More

Visited this establishment as part of a large group. I thought the service was spotty, as the wait from the first entree delivered to the last was way too long. Also, I think having a set menu allowed the kitchen to compromise the dishes. I would hope that if I ate hear with a small party it would all be... More

Excellent dinner for our party of 4. Reservation was honored on time, drinks were perfect, meal was delicious from antipasti, to salads, to homemade pasta, to risotto, to entrees, to café and dessert. The service was the perfect balance of present but not interrupting. We were so impressed, we are recommending Fiorini to the traveling friends and family who appreciate... More

I have been here twice recently for lunch, and both times the place was less than half full. On both visits we were met warmly at the door and seated away from others, which makes this place great for a business lunch. The pastas and salads are great, and the service was a bit uneven the last time I was... More

Quiet Italian place in midtown. The food was okay but certainly not outstanding. The service was terribly slow. It took over 30 minutes until the server took our food order. It seemed like there were a lot of locals in the place who got priority. So we felt a bit '2nd class'. Prices were typically high. I think we could... More

We loved the dinner menu. Had an excellent salad with oranges. Light and well balanced in calories. Followed by a branzino, roasted and accompanied by roasted potatoes. My wife had a great selection of grilled fish, It is very quite and the average age of customers around us was above 60.

We chose this restaurant because of the ability to have a good meal in a quiet setting, as we six had lots to catch up on. It was the right choice. The atmosphere is subdued, conversation was easy as the tables are well spaced and there is no noise. Service was attentive, portions were large, and the food was good.... More
