Two of us at our table ordered the special, New York strip steak. Both the meals were uneatable. The steak was so full of fat and mostly gristle, the gnocchi was cold and the veggies were so overcooked. The restaurant's solution was to make us pay for 50% of the meal we didn't eat. I would have walked out and not paid for anything, but we were with a large group for a celebration and didn't want to cause a scene. We will never go back.

As a private pilot one of your highlights is flying to airports that have restaurants on the field. It started with being able to tie-down (park) the plane near the terminal/restaurant. The restaurant was very clean with a view of the runway. The food was exceptional including the home-made loaf bread. Even if you are not a pilot doing a hamburger flight this is a great restaurant!

Wife & I vIsited Fiorentinos based upon TripAdvisor reviews and we were not disappointed. Located inside of a regional airport the locale can be a turnoff and the restaurants decor is generic 90's pub/grill but don't let those two factors deter you. They have a terrific menu with a wide variety of food, from sandwiches & pizza to full-fledged entrée's. I had a delicious grilled pork filet served with gnocchi's sautéed with rosemary and the pork (yeah, sautéed gnocchi are delicious).
My wife had pumpkin-filled ravioli in a light butter & parmesan cheese sauce with walnuts. Attentive, friendly service. Good specialty drinks. Reasonable prices. Ignore the less-than-perfect locale and treat yourself to a visit to Fiorentinos

We were looking for a good local Italian restaurant and were referred to Fiorentino’s Italian Restaurant & Bar at the Lancaster Airport. It turned out the restaurant was actually inside the terminal of this small airport, overlooking the runway. Some diners ask to sit by the windows so they can watch the small planes take-off and land. Their web site claims“...it’s Lancaster County's only restaurant with a runway view!”

After we ordered our drinks, we were brought fresh Italian bread with parmesan dipping oil. They have a nice selection of classic Italian entree’s on the menu to choose from. You can order dinners, with salad included, or a la carte. They also offer many types of pizza, but we were in the mood for a complete meal. The Caesar salad and eggplant parm I had were very good and I would definately go back for more if we lived nearby. The ladies in our group ordered dishes with risotto and didn’t care for it as they thought it was too dry. The pasta and red sauce were tasty and very much to our liking. The server we had was very pleasant and attentive to our needs. Unfortunately we were too full after our meals to sample their desserts.

I wouldn’t call it ‘fine dining’ and the atmosphere, for my taste, is ‘just OK’, but if we return to Lancaster again, I would give Fiorentino’s Restaurant another try.

Twice this summer our soccer team has played tournaments in the Lancaster, PA area. Each time we had a team dinner at Fiorentino's Italian Restaurant at the airport, and both times we had a fabulous experience!

Rob and Rose worked with us to book our large groups (40 and 60) at a time that worked well for everyone. We pre-ordered each time, and when we arrived, our food was hot and ready. The handled last minute substitutions and additions with ease. Everyone in our group of 60 was impressed that we all had eaten within one hour of arriving (we didn't keep track of our time on our first trip). No one had complaints about the food, and the private room in the back was the perfect size.

Thank you, Fiorentino's, for another wonderful meal. We'll be back !!!
