“Outstanding food and service”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

The food is superbly prepared and other than ordinary. We have dined here three times in the past six months and have never been disappointed. Definitely recommend the sautéed calamari, risotto with squid ink, quail, ossobuco, lasagna, shrimp, and pasta scallops. The ambience is quaint and intimate. Attentive service. Menu is unique...not your typical Italian American cuisine, more like restaurants in Itlay!

“"FIVE STAR RESTAURANT"”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

I have been a frequent customer of IL Fiorentino Ristorante since their original location on Kenmore Avenue. The quality and authentic nature of the food parallels the finest restaurants around the globe.We are so fortunate to have this restaurant located in Western NY. Keep up the great work!!!!

On another note...and I'm not sure it's appropriate to do so on this site...but I have to respond to "Mustangdaddy's review of this restaurant. I was very surprised to see such a 'Negative" review...so I spoke to the owner about the circumstances. Clearly there are "two-sides" to every story ever told particulaly when unfortunate confrontations occur. Furthermore the review was apparently written by the husband who was not even at the restaurant. It was my understanding the site only wanted reviews by those who had FIRST-HAND EXPERIENCES...NOT HEARSAY. Thank you for taking the time to read my review. JJD

Loved this restaurant! Found it on trip advisor....reviews are right on! Small, intimate, great service....but the show stopper is the food! Amazing lamb! This hidden gem will now be a favorite for us.

“Remarkable In every sense of the word!”
Reviewed July 12, 2011

So Much like restaurants in Italy. Hard to find one of this quality here in WNY. Exquisite food prepared by the chef who is from Florence, Italy. Attentive service and a lovely ambience. Not another restaurant in WNY comes close to being this special. Remember to call ahead for reservations!
