This was the second time we have dined here. We find Villa Firenze to be an excellent choice for a very good Italian dining experience. The restaurant is long-time family owned. Great choices of well priced variety and price points of wine. Great appetizers and pasta based entrees... both appropriately priced. On both occasions dining here, service was excellent. We...

The service was very good overall however, the food seemed ok as it was generally overdone & the sauces were nice but, no WOW factor. That said, they had 2 fantastic items you must try; the portabello mushroom appie & the hazelnut ice cream dessert. both WOW's. Great wine list too.

We visited this lovely restaurant tonight after reading other TripAdvisor reviews and we were not disappointed. Our enthusiastic server Queen was knowledgeable about wine and gave us great advice on a delicious wine once we ordered our food. All 3 of us started with chicken broth with veal tortellini which hit the spot on this chilly evening! I had a... More

A very close friend treated my wife and I to a dinner at Villa Firenze for my birthday. As soon as we walked in there were several awards on the counter and one on the wall. There was an award of Excellence from Tripadvisor, Diners Choice Awards OpenTable Top 100 2015 and 2016. Our friends have been to this restaurant... More

The room and atmosphere . . . fine . . . except rather noisy. The food . . . very low average. The price for it . . . over the top. Try $3-plus for a coffee and $3-plus for a refill about which you are not informed unless you inquire. Our party included two couples. Two chose specials. Prices... More

This favourite restaurant has become a bit of a Valentine's day tradition. This year a visit on Saturday, February 13, was excellent. The ambiance is calm and inviting; the service is knowledgeable and attentive; the pasta is made in house! The extensive menu makes it difficult to decide between pasta and other dishes you'd like to try. Problem solved -... More

Overall we had a good dining experience. I had the minestrone soup and the puttanesca. The soup was only average. The potatoes were undercooked and the soup itself was too hearty. It was also a bit expensive for soup. The puttanesca was excellent. The value wasn't really great. The price was a bit high given the quality of the food.

A truly excellent dining experience, oh that was in the past. Last visit was less than stellar. Menu , value and food was lackluster. Noticed a large change in the last year , change in ownership? One has to wonder. In this day of mass layoffs you would think a business would lower the price point. That was not the... More
