We had a Family Birthday dinner here tonight. All meals were delicious. I particularly enjoyed my Scallops in Cream Sauce over Black Linguini. We found the prices high, particularly for simple Pasta Bolognese ($23) and Spinach Ravioli ($21). Service was good. I found the chairs almost unbearably uncomfortable, however. They use "cafe" style chairs. Small, round seat, no padding, very... More

We always think of Florentino's when we think Italian. They are consistently good. The garlic bread is fabulous. Although rally good food, they could vary the menu a bit. It seems to have remained unchanged for years.

Food is excellent at both of Francisco's locations, Florentino's and Francisco's On the River. In addition to the regular menu, there are always interesting and delicious specials. Service is always polite and professional.

My husband and I, just last night, ate supper at Florentino's on State St. I received a Birthday Pak with coupons, and we used one of those. What surprised me, and made me chuckle, was that everyone we met who worked in this Italian restaurant spoke Spanish!:) I ordered a Bolognese with beef, veal and pork and my husband ordered... More

This place is very small, but cozy. It's tucked into the main drag among some shops. It's really just what I want in a neighborhood restaurant. It reminds me of a European eatery. Good pasta, salads and desserts. The service was fantastic and the server was very pleasant. I would go back again.

I was looking forward to going to this BYOB since I had eaten at the other restaurant on the river and enjoyed it. While I can't say everything was perfect, I can say the food was really good. Very tasty mushroom soup and scallop appetizer. My capellini and crab and the lasagna were delicious. The coconut cake was ridiculous! I... More

My wife and I stopped in this little store front type restaurant on the main street in Newtown. What a great choice. Everything was good. The appetizer, the salad, the entree, as well as the bread and olive oil. We would definately recommend it highly.

Was really looking forward to revisiting from a year ago, when I had a memorable meal with my team. Given my previous visit I brought my wife for a quiet intimate celebration. Brought drinks as it is a BYOB, which I like, having an extensive cellar at home. Ordered some of my favorites of the menu from last time, calamari... More

Service & food are fantastic!! Great salads for lunch, my favorite is the mushroom fennel salad with a lemon vinaigrette, along with one of their soups. Always fresh & wonderful!!
