Firenze by Night was recommended by a friend - this is a fine Italian restaurant that has been there for 25+ years, but we had never discovered it. Excellent food, very good service and the proprietor is there to greet you and be sure that your evening goes well. This fine Italian food establishment is reasonably priced and friendly.

We loved the idea of a cluster of Italian restaurants so don't lose this like so many other places. Firenze was a very nice traditional non pizza restaurant. We both thoroughly enjoyed our linguine Ella leone with anchovies and red bell peppers and the ravioli. The wine list was extensive and we settled on a very nice cab sav. Although we arrived without a booking and could have been more suitably dressed we found the restaurant appealing and well worth a visit.
The waiter although quite attentive did not establish any rapport or personality - we find this disappointing.....is this normal when tips are standard? We would much rather personable and friendly as well.

Used TA review and felt lucky to eat here. Arrived just before 5pm on a Saturday night. We were seated and the restaurant quickly began to fill up. Attentive service including a waiter who sang to us! Fabulous pasta dish with wild mushrooms; large enough to share. Wine at 8 dollars a glass was great with the meal.

Loved the Italian atmosphere, from the moment one enters - all employees and owners are Italian, so everything is authentic - from the great food to the superb list of wines. Not a fancy restaurant, but great food and service.
