Since this restaurant had good reviews, we decided to try it out. We were not disappointed. It had a nice, bistro, atmosphere and the food was very good. The Clam Chowder was excellent, the Wild Alaskan Salmon was very good.

1285 Restobar offers really great pizza and pasta options. Owner also owns Waterfront Depot. Both Restobar and Waterfront Depot should be on the list of restaurants to visit in Florence. Great food, good service, and good (to great) prices!

Our group came across the street from the Waterfront Depot at 4:30. We were unable to get in there for dinner that night without reservations! Anyway, Restobar 1285 shares the same owner. We started with drafts and mixed drinks. Entrees were herb encrusted halibut, seafood cannelloni, and parmesan halibut. The herb halibut and cannelloni were exceptional, the parmesan halibut only very good. We also had a fine bottle of pinot gris and a couple desserts and our total bill was $118. The only complaint was our server forgot to bring my salad before my entree and the bread with the cannelloni.

WORST SERVICE EVER! Walked in, asked for a table and the waitress snarled, "I just got here, ok?!". It took a half hour to get her over to the table to take our order. We had waited 45 minutes to get water/drinks when we approached the bar to ask about getting a couple waters. They immediately said, "Can we suggest another restaurant?". We simply replied that we were leaving. Then, one of the waiters followed us back to our table (to tell the rest of out party that we were going somewhere else) and insisted that we leave through the back so that we wouldn't "continue making a scene", which is what caused a scene as we laughed at him. He yelled threats that he'd call the cops on us if we walked through the restaurant, which was greeted with, "Please do!". To put it lightly, this place sucked.

WE had a wonderful meal with a terrific waitress who made perfect recommendations. All of the fish was delicious, fresh and moist. The Boulliabaise was fantastic and the steamers were super tasty! Would like a pie choice for dessert but everyone liked the tiramisu and the latte was great!
Will totally revisit when next in Florence! and its dressier cousin across the street, Waterfront Depot , is noteworthy as well!
