“A gem of a restaurant”
Reviewed March 4, 2012

Go to Fiorino and you will not be disappointed! Located in the East Falls section of Philadelphia, Chef Franco has opened a modest little eatery (BYOB) that serves up wonderful plates in a cute atmosphere. Parking is tight, so be prepared. And use your GPS to find it; it's tucked away in a neighborhood where no restaurant has ever gone. Whatever you do, don't use Google maps from the Main Line-baaaad directions!
Back to my review. If you don't order the gnocchi (you can get it as an appetizer) you will be missing the most ethereal of gnocchi ever. I speared some off my friend's plate and was sorry when the waiter took it away with some left in the dish. If short ribs are a special of the evening, don't even hesitate. Three succulent ribs that melt in your mouth is the best way to describe them. My hubby had the scallops which he announced were wonderful. The menu has something for everyone-pasta, veal, vegetables, etc. Service was attentive, but unobtrusive. All in all, a delightful dining experience was had by all. Make reservations! There are only about 11 tables which fill up quickly.
Enjoy!!!
