“Old fashioned southern Italian fare”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

Just got into town, read previous reviews, found a parking spot-no easy task @ 8pm on Saturday. Waited a few minutes to be seated. Extensive menu. My husband ordered the Spaghetti Florence which was spaghetti mixed w/veggies, chicken & Parmesan cheese. Very good. I had the Penne Arrabianataw/shrimp. Would have raised my score w/a couple more shrimp. But a tasty dish. Not that spicy. Splurged on dessert. We love tartufo and after driving all day to get here. Couldn't resist. Yum. All in all, if you're in the mood for some Italian nostalgia this is your place to dine.

“Wonderful. This place was a great find!”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

I stayed in Alexandria for 8 days and ate here twice. The food is excellent. The service was good. The prices were good. The building is kind of shabby but in a way that adds to the charm.

There are nicer places to eat, but if you're going to be in Alexandria, VA, for more than a day you've got to try this place.

The nights my wife and I ate there, several locals came and went and seemed to enjoy themselves as much as we did.

Alexandria is beautiful city that is friendly to visitors.

“Great food, needs updating”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

Went here with a friend, and we loved the food--there was plenty of it, too! It needs some updating, but the staff is friendly and it's not too expensive. Try it out and enjoy it!

“Acceptable food but questionable service”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

My wife and I have eaten at the Pines of Florence several times, and it has always been crowded. This suggests that the food is well liked. The menu is extensive. My concern addresses the poor service we experienced during our most recent visit. My wife’s wine glass was removed from the table before she was finished. She subsequently asked for another glass of wine but did not receive it. Both of our plates were also removed before we were finished and without us having been asked if we were finished. The owner (?) apologized for the poor service.
