Reviewed May 12, 2014

If your looking to be seen this is not the place, if your looking for great food and great people this is the place. This was the cheapest in terms of price but the best meal in every way in Cabo.
This is why I love Mexico. I don't know why we can't have places like this in Southern California.

I don't write reviews and this is my first, but I read them constantly and have been reading trip advisor reviews for years.

This is a must go for dinner!

Thank you for writing your very first Trip Advisor review about Fiorenza.
I sincerely appreciate you gave your review a " 5 Star" rating and named " I love the food and I love this place".
We are happy that you enjoyed this amazing food experience .
You are right for saying that is not a place to be seen ,in fact a lot of costumer feel at Fiorenza like being invited at the house of a Italian family.

It was a placer and a honor have you back also the day after with your local friends.
Hope to see you back soon.

Best wishes for lots,lots of wonderful vacations like the one in Cabo.

“Deeeeeelicious!”
Reviewed May 7, 2014

The site of a former pizza place that closed a couple years ago. We stopped to check it out when we noticed a new restaurant at the location. What a great addition to downtown San Jose. The owners are terrific (Fiorenza and Roberto)! The pasta is homemade and wonderful. If you want a pasta/sauce combination that isn't on the menu - no problem - they will do it for you. We liked it so well that we visited three times during our two week stay. Others have mentioned the chocolate liqueur they make, try pouring it over the gelato! Also, unlike many of the downtown restaurants the prices are right.

It's always a pleasure to read a review written by a "Senior reviewer "such as yourself.
Thank you for such an outstanding review and for rating it with all "5 Stars"and for naming your review "DEEEEEELICIOUS" and for all the great comments and recommendations you wrote.
I sincerely appreciate you described Fiorenza as a "GREAT ADDITION TO DOWNTOWN SAN JOSE" .
Thank you for mention the fact that our pasta is home made and that is possible to combine ingredients and even change the sauce or the type of pasta .
We love to make happy each and every clients and always attend them with the smile on our lips.This is the real Italian spirit .
And how chef Roberto always says: if a restaurant is Italian it suppose to be own by an Italian or have a Italian chef,maybe I start tomorrow to prepare Mexican food but it will never taste like the tacos that Mexican can prepare,the tradition is in your blood.
We are happy that you mention also the prices because many people thinks that only because we are downtown is suppose to be expensive,this doesn't means that we give bad quality ,it means that what we do we do not to become rich but for the fact that we love that the people enjoy our food.
Best wishes for having a lots of meal like at Fiorenza's.
Hope to see you back soon .

“Our new favorite in San Jose!”
Reviewed April 30, 2014

We have a home in San Jose and have been coming here for seven years. Fiorenza's is our new favorite, and their new location right in town makes it even more convenient (although the location in Monte Real is similarly charming). Fiorenza and Roberto are a couple from Italy, and their presence gives the place a great "family restaurant" feel. The homemade pasta is excellent, and they're very flexible if there's something you'd like that isn't on the menu. Roberto also makes a yummy chocolate liqueur that they share with dessert. Start with the non-traditional bruschetta, the caprese salad, the fresh pasta of the day prepared ala carbonara and finish with some tiramisu--you won't be disappointed!

“Best food ever!”
Reviewed April 13, 2014

Tried on our second day there and until the end we couldn't stay away from that italian food so we went there each and every day!
I've heard they opened another one, I have to try it, definitely is at least as great as this one!

What a wonderful dinner we had at Fiorenza's. The food was awesome and the service we received was fantastic. Pasta and sauce was excellent, pizza was great. Oh the desert....it was awesome.
The restaurant was clean and the staff was great. The owners are wonderful and we were treated fantastic. Fiorenza is a charming young lady that takes care of the customers. Roberto does a great job in the kitchen, homemade pastas and sauces.
