I originally went to Fiorentino's by default. I was going to Joe's of Avenue U and it was closing. They recommended going to Fiorentino's on the next block. I was so glad they did. Twice a year when I visited Brooklyn....I NEVER missed a visit (with family members) to Fiorentino's!! I used to live in Naples, Italy and if I... More

We ordered combination salad, fried zucchini, chicken parmagina, shrimp parmagina and chicken Marsala. The salad was fresh and crispy. The fried zucchini was large and delicious. The entrees were very good. Nice sized portions. The shrimps were a bit over cooked. All in all, I recommend this restaurant.

My wife recently went to this place on a Saturday night for dinner with another couple. Had not been to this restaurant for close to twenty years since moving out of Brooklyn. The place was just as we remembered it. In fact, nothing's changed.If your coming expecting great decor and ambiance, then pick another restaurant. If you want good service,... More

The family that gave us Carolina's in Coney Island more than a half century ago still has the recipe for some of our favorite dishes from a lifetime ago. The seafood salad, the fritto misto ,and so many old favorites are still available at prices that never seem to change. Imagine a litter of cheapn Italian Red for $15.

I've been meeting friends for dinner at Fiorentino's on Avenue U off McDonald Avenue in Brooklyn for several years now. It is by far the best neighborhood Italian restaurant I have ever patronized. Every dish is perfect. We starti with the Italian salad loaded with crisp fennel, artichoke, radishes and sweet peppers. I've had their pork chops, veal chops and... More

This was THE place to eat for decades. The wait for a table was long and worth it. It has slowly slipped through the years and today we no longer visit. To be fair the wait staff is the same and helpful but the food has changed and it saddens me.
