“Great corner Italian restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2013 via mobile

After a walk up and down King Street we found the Pines of Florence for dinner. This was just what I expected from a family restaurant. The food was home made and reasonably priced. Next time in Alexandria I know what's for dinner.

“You get what you pay for”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2013

Needs an update and bathrooms need cleaning. We had a reservation and they seated us on time. The food was fair. The calamari was so heavily breaded and the sauce was mediocre. Go for the fra diablo sauce and not the marinara and make sure you skip the Caesar salad and fried peppers. The veal chop was tasty and a nice size portion. Ask for the pasta al dente if not comes out to overdone. When we sent back the salad they could not of been nicer and took it off the check. The wait staff was good and brought over more bread when asked. Needs a little help in the spice department but overall you get what you pay for.

“Great find!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2013

We were late arriving in Alexandria on a rainy night not knowing where we would have dinner, and couldn't find a parking spot in Old Town. We happened upon Pines of Florence because of a parking spot available right in front of the restaurant. And what a great find of a local's favorite Italian neighborhood restaurant. The food was wonderful with traditional Italian dishes, very good house wine served in half or full carafes, and tremendous value! If in Old Town Alexandria, don't miss this gem.

“Family style Italian priced reasonably & good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2013

This little place was recommended by the young staff of our hotel ... they said it was a place they could afford, & had good food. We found it had not only good food, & pleasant music, but it's plain decor made it relaxed & family-oriented. Prices were surprisingly reasonable -- especially for this tourist area.

“Great deal, unpretentious old-style Italian restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

This is the best meal value in Old Town Alexandria. As others have recommended, try the specials -- they are often excellent. The house Chianti is a decent quaff.

The Pines of Florence is old-fashioned, the service is swift, and the food reliable. I find it charming. Other who like high-end ambiance and fancier foods might not.
