    We chose two of the specials - ravioli with mushroom truffle sauce and paparadelle with lobster. Our wines were fine, and NOT New York prices for a change. We chose a table outside on a steamy October evening, in all, very pleasant.

    We absolutely adored spending an evening at the Bistecca Fiorentina Restaurant. The waiters are attentive and have a good sense of humour. Serive is impeccable. The food was exquisite as was the wine. The portions are generous and the the restaurant is well decorated. We will definitely return the next time we are on a New York broadway extravaganza! Thank you!

  • Good food, some service misses
    OpenTable Diner Since 2002
    Dined on 10/11/2014
    As a Tuscan Steakhouse, they have a variety of steak and other Italian specialties, and everyone should find something they like on the menu. The space is nice, and gets a bit noisy, but not to the point you can't converse with your table. The food was all quite good, but the service had some misses. When I got my soup I was asked if I wanted cheese or pepper. I asked for pepper and the gentleman walked away, and didn't return. Several minutes later we flagged him down when he finished with the pepper at another table. Our waiter seemed to disappear at the end of the night and we had to flag down another to get our check after 10 or minutes of sitting at an empty table--with no dessert or coffee offered until then.

    Enjoyed a lovely pre-theater dinner here - cured beef with thin slices of parmesan cheese, veal with asparagus and cheese, and cheesecake. Food was well-prepared and service was excellent. The spinach was traditionally prepared with garlic. Great meal.

    My wife and I went to play and then walked to restaurant. We were a little early but were greeted at door and escorted to our table. The wait staff were very fast, helpful and personable. The food was unbelieveable, the wine was great and the timing between the appetizers, 1st course and main course was perfect. Although the restautant got busy, the noise level was normal and we could still hear each other in a normal conversation. Coffee and desert were brought out and the check arrived about 2 mintes after request. We were not hurried even with people waiting to get inside. I would definitly reccommend Bistecca Fiorentina to anyone. The baked clams, calamari and lobster ravioli were probably the best I have ever had anywhere.

    Good food and service. Baked clams oreganata were tasty and plump but could have been less soggy.squid and octopus salad was delicious. Excellent veal parm and chicken in lemon sauce duck ravioli special was excellent. Large assortment of wine. A bit pricey, but we did not take advantage of the less expensive price fixed menu.

    I shouldn't say best, because we haven't tried them all, but this is our place of choice before theater (we live on the Island). We're always greeted like family, the wine list has several bottles in the twenties(!), and, most importantly, the food is so reliably good,well prepared and presented, that we wish we lived in the neighborhood--we'd be there much more often.We shared an excellent appetizer, then we both had papardelle dishes, mine with lobster, my wife's with rabbit.Both dishes had so much well-prepared meat that we had to leave over some of the pasta. Both dishes had very different, and delicious, sauces. For dessert we shared a chocolate mousse, also excellent. We're always happily sated upon leaving for the theater.

    The restaurant is located in theater district. Dinner was way better than the show......food and service were quite good. The shellfish risotto.....reminded of a similar dish in Padua....maybe we can return to this restaurant more easily? The wine was very good also. We now have. Wine app called ' Wineglass'. Helps in choosing a well priced good wine. They had a good list.

    Nice dining experience but somewhat on the pricey side. I would advise shopping around on 46th for a better deal. Back in the day this eatery would let you substitute a side of pasta for the veggie accompaniement, no charge. Not the case today. The wine service was a bit rushed in an attempt to prompt ordering more. Unlike previous visits, there were not many diners on site for our 8 pm reservation. Food was very good with the exception of a rissotto entre that was looking more like a side dish than an entre. Used to love this place but ready to move on.

    A great place to go for a quiet lunch or a romantic meal. Loved the clean, crisp feel of the place--white tablecloths, fresh flowers, pictures of Tuscany. I went for pre-theater lunch. The location was ideal, prices reasonable and the food tasty and fresh. Classic show tunes were played in the background as a plus! Great service and no pressure--we felt like we could sit and relax before the show.

    We arrived exactly on time. Our reservation was verified on their computer system but not registered that we had arrived. Hence, a later email from Open Table asking why we did not honor our reservation. Food was great, all four different entrees. Service began well but soon became slow and surly. If I had wanted that kind of service I would have gone to a French restaurant.

    There were three of us eating at 8:30PM before a late 10:00PM curtain. The staff was very friendly, a bit funny, and prompt with their service. For the first course we all had a different salad each of which were delicious. The second course included a mushroom ravioli which was outstanding as was the steak that was served. My zuppe de pesc (fish stew) had a great broth but the shrimp came in their shells and I hate that as that makes it messy to eat. One of the best theatre district restaurants I've eaten in.

    Had eaten here about a month ago and found the food to be more tasty and better presented than this time...it was just ok. I had the veal medallions with asparagus and it was the parmesan cheese on top that gave it any flavor. Staff is friendly and nice but not overly attentive. Location is great, close to theaters and that is why we selected it. Décor could use a bit of updating. Would probably try it again, maybe they were having an off night!
