The restaruant is an attractive establishment. Arrived around 7.15 pm without a reservation and quickly shown to a table. Attentive service. Food delivered fairly quickly but only lukewarm. Returned to kitchen and returned warmed. Manager took about 10% off the bill. Good taste to food; reasonable portions.

Was very disappointed with the food. The pasta was chewy and solid due to the consistency and thickness of the dough and it was overcooked - I suspect that it had been left sitting in warm water, which given we were in there early and there were few other diners was not good. The sauces had little flavour. I wouldn't have rated any one of our courses as being "good". Service was OK, but not great. Was very expensive for what we got.

Were 2nd or 3rd into restaurant and only 2 of us but even then service was very slow.
The quality of the food certainly did not match the quite high price. 1 of the 2 starters (black crab linguini) was 3 tasteless overcooked pasta lumps.
The seafood pasta main course was equally overcooked, looked like it had come out of a tin, and was tasteless. I was very hungry so ate it but many other days I would have sent it back.
Told the waitress I was not impressed by the meal and a waiter came to say he was sorry we had not enjoyed it and did we want desert – based on the quality of the starter and mains we certainly didn’t.
The table beside us rejected one of their courses so I don’t think we just drew the short straw.
The pizzas looked reasonable but I have no intention of ever going back.

Firenze waas the destination for my Fiancée's and my first meal-out in Nantwich, chosen chiefly because we both had a hankering for Italian food and there seems to be limited choice in Nantwich. With this in mind and the fact the bar was busy, I was a little trepidatious about what the quality and pricing of the food might be like...

I needn't have worried: we were quickly found a table despite not having booked, and the efficient and polite staff made us welcome. It's a modern and fairly stylish, youth-oriented place, yet us middle-aged fuddy-duddies weren't made to feel out of place; it's worth noting that the dining area upstairs is quieter and more suited to couples dining.

Food arrived promptly, and our shared starter of olives, bread and oil/vinegar for dipping was generous, offered plenty of variety and was very tasty and well-presented. The pizzas and salad that followed were frankly excellent - lovely super-thin, crisp bases and delicious fresh toppings - certainly a step-up from the chain-restaurants.

Menus, curiously, make no mention of the beers available - concentrating on wines, but rest assured they have the usual suspects, such as Peroni.

The bill when it came was fair, and overall this is a restaurant we'd return to.
