The staff was friendly, food was fresh and great presentation. Our waiter was accommodating, and very personable. Views of the planes landing and taking off make this a unique restaurant.

It's difficult to describe but there were 4 of us for dinner and none of us enjoyed it. The service was......strange I suppose is the best word. The atmosphere is fine however. But for Italian fare, it's really a disappointment. Fish is not fresh, frozen I imagine. Breaded veal was soggy and not well done at all. Even our salads were a let down. We really wanted to like it but again, we were all left down. I don't recommend it at all. There are far better places in Newtown.

We arrived at Florentino's expecting great things as we had heard it was fantastic. We could not have been more disappointed. It was a Saturday night and when we walked in we realized that there was no waiting area. Not a big deal because we had a reservation, but after about 5 minutes of standing next to someone's table awkwardly and without a waiter so much looking our way, I thought maybe went in the wrong door. When we tried the other entrance, it was bathrooms, so we headed back to the front. Now we were third in line of reservations waiting, all crowded into the dining area. Eventually, we were finally greeted. 7 minutes later, we received menus. A table next to us sat down after us and we heard them take their drink order, light their candle... Etc. we sat without anyone looking at us for 8 minutes when someone finally came over, told us she knew we'd been waiting a long time and asked us if we wanted bread- of course we did, we were very hungry by this point. The dinner continued this way, no service, okay food and very very loud because the tables are close together. When we finally flagged down the waitress for the check, we were greeted with 2 charges for bread!!!! Really?! You made us wait because of lack of service for mediocre food, asked us if we wanted bread and conveniently left out it cost extra? I've been to many many restaurants and have yet to be charged for this.
The waitress then topped off our awful experience by writing the pre-Groupon amount on top of the credit card slip so I knew how much to tip her. Awful, awful, awful service and experience.

In charming Newtown, this small BYOB is very welcoming. The hostess is very enthusiastic describing what is on the menu & her suggestions. The prices are about average. The food is good but overly salted; the portions are small. My pasta with little neck clams were disappointing. The "clams" were minuscule and tough--the red sauce was heavily salted. My husband's seafood dish was disappointing--the crab was hard to find and the rest of the seafood was overcooked.

I love this new chef! We've visited this place a few times last year and it was "eh!" With the new chef, the dishes are classic italian/french and the feast begins with the presentation! Had the black ink spaghetti with scallops in marscapone sauce - yum!! Hubby had the Fish Special - cant remember if it was Flounder or Tilapia encrusted with herbs - he said very delish!
