We really enjoyed this restaurant. Atmosphere , decor and the food of coarse ! Nice bar. Busy. Our waiter was a little overwhelmed could just tell. He forgot a few things we had asked for but he was really trying. Our granddaughter had wanted tortelline and we found it here. She loved it ! Made her day. All food and drinks were good, service was ok. Cost reasonable. Would recommend.

This was our first visit to Branson. The restaurant was recommended by one of the staff at the hotel who said it was her favorite place to eat. Locals seldom steer you in the wrong direction, and this was no exception. Italian food can get a little jaded, especially when located in a major tourist location. However, I was really pleasantly surprised. It is a little on the Olive Garden theme, but I would say slight better food.The bread, and olive oil/balsamic was a nice change from just hot bread and butter (little heavy with the herbs, just plain balsamic and olive oil would have been better if I was going to be really picky). Then we shared the mussels in white wine and that was good, for the main courses we went for the pasta. Mine was excellent - our server recommended it as her favorite and it was really good - chicken, artichokes, and a very good sauce (defiantly not the normal bland tinned tomato type) The meatballs, sausage pasta was not bad, the sausages were better than the meat ball - with a nice herbal and fennel taste. The wine was good. The portions were large. The service was very friendly and prompt. Maybe a little too prompt for us as we had seen an afternoon show and wanted a nice relaxing meal. But that should not really be a mark against them as most people are wanting to eat before seeing a show and so prompt service is important. Overall this was the best food we had in Branson and better than most Italian places.

Much better than the Pasta House that used to be at this location. Everything was excellent. I had a pasta, shrimp w/bacon dish that rocked.

Branson has so many choices for dining, some better than others of course. Florentina's is an excellent choice for quality Italian food and delicious desserts and drink options. But for me, the brick oven meatball pizza is the best around. Check out this place for something different and delightful.

My boys and I were in Branson for the weekend and we always go to to this restaurant cause the food and service has been outstanding. This time the food was the issue. I decided to have the sampler that included spaghetti with sausage, lasagna, and fettuccini alfredo. The Alfredo was awful, couldn't even finish it. The lasagna was microwaved and was rubbery. The spaghetti was a little better. Overall it could have been a lot better.
