Diner Reviews
  • "We took two of our good friends to dinner Sunday night and had a wonderful dining experience. Great food, great drinks, wonderful garden setting, moderate to low noise level so conversation could be heard. Even though dinners at $$, they are well worth it. Never disappointed at selection or quality."

  • "Never written a review before but this restaurant deserves my time for its Sicilian cooking.We were 8 meals but the standout was the Penne Siciliana which is penne pasta with eggplant in a marinara sauce.The taste of Italian marinara is very regional, some acidic or tart & some sweet, this sauce brought me back to my grandmother's kitchen.The sauce was SMOOTH with a delightful sweet taste on the tongue.Every bite made you say this is how grandma's tasted.If you don't like a sweet sauce this is not for you but for those who grew up with it don't miss this.Another speciality was the Arancini, Rice balls can get heavy and pasty these were light and moist another don't miss! Grilled octopus, great lamb chops other pasta no complaints Thumbs up!"

  • "Fiorentino's never disappoints, their specials are amazing and they could even accommodate one of our party with food allergies. The stuffed gnocchi is the best!"

  • "The food is ALWAYS good. The staff is great and the ambiance is welcoming. We go to Fiorentino's for almost all our special gatherings. Our son moved to the neighborhood 7 years ago and decided to try it out and we have all been going since."

  • "I've been coming to Fiorentino's for a couple years now, and again and again I am reminded of how special of a place it is. I dined there on Saturday evening with my boyfriend's family, during their 8th anniversary special. The place was full of big groups enjoying the beautiful patio ambience! This time around, we shared the bruschetta and mussels to start -- both fantastic. And for an entree, I had the special grouper -- my favorite entree thus far at Fiorentino's. I'd recommend this place to anyone!"

  • "We celebrated my husband's birthday with our daughter, son-in-law and their 9 month old son. Fiorentino's provided excellent service and the food was delicious. We have eaten there before and it has become our favorite restaurant to eat at when we are visiting our daughter in Chicago."

  • "Unfortunately we did not have the greatest service. Our waiter kept telling us he would be back in a minute, which in reality was 20 minutes every time. At one point he even said that he was "really busy with another big table in another room". Hey buddy, I don't care, we are here to enjoy ourselves for a great dinner too. Food was good - nothing remarkable. In my opinion service is everything and will even make up for mediocre food and this place just missed the bar. "

  • "Went to Fiorentino's to celebrate a birthday. Food was great! Everyone in our group had fish - either salmon or the sea bass special. The Caesar salad was also very good with a unique homemade dressing. Will definitely be returning."

  • "I recall enjoying the food more years ago. The food was good, but the prices were high for sub-par food. The ambiance is excellent and the service is great. I just wish the food was as good as it use to be. "

  • "...the service was a little lacking. This was our second juant to Fiorentino's and we chose it this time specifically because of the great time we had previously. However, it seems the waiter had a hard time discerning from when the table wants to take things slow and enjoy our meal as an experience and when the table wants basic service. He attended to the table diligently at first, but when he realized we weren't going to order everything at once and that we were going to pace ourselves, it seemed we had to hunt him down, literally, when we were ready for the next phase. It's not hard, really, to see when a table is ready for the next step or even needing something, especially when the credit card is on the table in plain view."

  • "We arrived on time for our reservation,our table was available, but we had to wait 20 minutes so they could make our 2-seat table a 4-seat table (why for 2 people). My friend complained, the manager offered us free drinks (neither of us drink). We ordered our food, the server had ordered the wrong thing for my friend. When they brought out the correct thing, it was breaded, and my friend (and I) has a gluten allergy that we discussed in GREAT detail with the server before ordering. The manager got involved and my friend ordered something else, and they picked up the tab. My meal was great, my friend's was ok (she's never happy anywhere). I thought they handled the situation really well, the server did too, I would definitely go back. "

  • "Fiorentino's is the perfect neighborhood restaurant: The food is consistently excellent, the service is friendly and attentive, and the atmosphere is warm and relaxed. Unlike some restaurants, this is not a museum for food. It's a place where you can come with friends, have a really good, enjoyable meal, drink some very good wine and not spend a fortune. We come here all the time and plan to keep coming back."

  • "Our Opentable reservation hit a snafu, but Fiorentino's was great and accommodated our party of 6 ASAP in the outdoor seating area. The food was delicious, and our party was very pleased with everything! We will definitely be back!"

  • "We were seated immediately upon our arrival. Our request for 2 high chairs was met. The waitress was friendly and very patient. We placed our order and had to wait quite a while for the food to arrive. I think it's because there were many families due to it being Mothers Day. Once the food arrived, we were very pleased with all of our entrees. We had pastas, fish, chicken, and veal orders at our table. Everyone was very satisfied with the dishes they chose. Fiorentino's has a lovely dining room as well as a beautiful outdoor patio. Each of the mothers at our table also received a $20 gift card for future visits. Nice extra touch."

  • "This is a neighborhood restaurant that is accommodating on many levels. It's very family friendly, as we saw parents with their little children. It's also gluten-free friendly, as they have a special menu available. The service was attentive and helpful. The food was generous, simple and tasty. I particularly enjoyed the outdoor patio area. We will be back."

  • "Took my gal there for her birthday after MAss at St. Alphonsus 2 blocks away. Stunningly beautiful Church. Stunningly delicions meal. Great combo. We normallly order a meal and a dessert and share. For this dinner we went wild. For dessert, strongly recommend the lemon cheescake, along with something chocolaty. I had Filet Italiano - delish!. She had an Italian Screwdriver. HEY WATCH IT! A great night we will repeat again soon!!!"

  • "Started the meal w/some warm crusty bread, oil and cheese. The soda tasted a little funky so I sent that back but from there on, our meal was awesome. Shared an app of Arancini packed with cheese, rice, peas and meat. My only complaint was wish it would have been served with a spoon to spoon the marinara sauce on top of it. I ordered the Pollo Capri with a side of paste and LOVED it. My husband ate every bite of his Italian sausage, brocollini and potatoes and enjoyed it thoroughly. They cut the sausage long ways and grilled it nicely. The potatoes looked perfect. I didn't snag a bite because it wasn't the largest meal in the world and he was hungry so I didn't ask. Overall a great experience. Check out Yelp check in offer for free dessert!"

  • "I went there for my friends birthday. Enjoyed a delicious meal. The wait staff was attentive. They have an enclosed patio section which makes you feel like you are in Italy. The overhead music is really nice. The only thing I wish they had there was, they did nothing special for my fiends birthday. They said if I bought a dessert they would put a candle in it, which did not make a lot of sense to me. People want to feel special on their birthday. Other than that it was a great night. Highly recommended."

  • "was great to revisit one of our favorite places with friends from out of town. One of friends is a chef and thoroughly enjoyed the meal and service, as did we all. our server was knowledgable, engaging and perfectly timed meal. Papparadelle was delish. So were the stuffed gnocchi. We'll definitely be back sooner rather than later. We've forgotten how wonderful it is and Frances' recipes are spot on!!"

  • "Very average - three of your dishes our server (who was a very good server, by the way) touted, were very, very average/bland (1) I forget the name - shrimp and pasta in a light sauce with garlic, (2) Crab cakesappetizer and lastly (3) Meatballs side dish. We returned this pasat weekend after an average experience three years ago, and were disappointed, again. Sorry, won't be coming back - too many choices in Chicago."

  • "We are a group of friend who dine out to catch up so we look for a place with good food and popular but no so popular we feel rushed because our table is needed. This was perfect. The food was great, the server was attentive but not overly so. He brought dishes we were sharing on individual plates to make it easier for us. We will be back!"

  • "We had the fixed price menu for restaurant week and it was delicious and a great bargain. We always ask ourselves, "Why don't we go to this restaurant more often?" The appetizer of a cannoli that was deconstructed was true brilliance."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "Not a great place to take a date and not worth the 24 dollars a plate. I would not recommend this place to anyone. They sat us in a heated outdoor area which was fine except for the dripping water and the dead leaves hanging above our table."

  • "Great menu, Good food, great service! We finally tried this restaurant after numerous recommendations it's a wonderful neighborhood find. I thought it would be difficult to find parking, but it wasn't. Although it's the middle of winter, I could see there was a wonderful outdoor dining room that will be beautiful in the warmer weather."

  • "We have been here a number of times before, so we knew it was good. We tried some of the new things on the Valentine's menu. I had lobster pasta pockets, very good. My husband had scallops which were very good, although he did not think the side was the proper choice with them. Caprese salad was wonderful, and they split it for us."

  • "Great selection and delicious Italian food. Was very surprised they didn't try to get us in and out (it was Valentines Day) instead we have a relaxing romantic dinner for two. This is a great spot, although up north in Lakeview it feels out of the hustle and bustle of a RiverNorth or Goldcoast restaurant."
