We stumbled upon this restaurant which is about 0.25 miles from our home, but on a street we rarely drive down. We were so glad that we did. Excellent service, inspired menu, perfectly cooked al dente house made pasta, affordable, impressive wine list adn a really nice ambiance. Can't say enough good things about Firenze.

The food was memorable as was the service! The restaurant has a fun yet sophisticated atmosphere! Great for a romantic date night out or for a great lunch anytime!

Had a tough experience last time out, but went last night as last-minute, early new year's dinner with the family. The hostess was very friendly and accommodating and we were seated quickly. The waiter offered sincere and personal service, as did the rest of the staff, The pasta, fish and shrimp dishes were all tasty, well prepared and perfectly seasoned. Save room for dessert, and highly recommend the Italian donuts. Only complaint was that dishes were cleared away before everyone was finished with their meals, leaving a feeling of being a bit rushed. However, it was a busy holiday evening so I can understand the hurry. All in all a very nice, neighborhood dining experience.

The location and inside of the restaurant were not what I anticipated. Kind of a non descript building that if you aren't watching, you will pass right by it. The inside is dark with no windows. I went around 6:00 and sat at the bar for dinner. Lots of parties were coming in for dinner, so the place was busy. I had a squash ravioli that were big, so much so the edges were tough but the center was very good. The bread they give everyone was hot and tasty. The marinara for dipping had a little spice to it and is served cold. There is a full bar and cocktail specials. The bar tender was friendly and offered a dessert to make up for the ravioli. So all in all, not a bad meal.

Warm, friendly Italian restaurant that serve very good food. We went for dinner last night and were not disappointed. The 4 of us had: Burrata cappresse, Caesar salad, truffle, lobster and shrimp mac and cheese, cioppino, steamed clams and rack of lamb. All were expertly prepared.

As others have said, the staff was very friendly.

We will definitely return.
