Diner Reviews
  • "As usual, they outdid themselves at Firenze! Even when we had to postpone the reservation for a half hour (til 8:30), they were fine and save our table. They feature personal attention, great choices, excellent specials and tasty food all around. It's just a great place to go and with Divino closing, it's one of the 2 best."

  • "Strange environment, so dark that the menus have electronic back lighting. Small tables crowded closely each with a tall candle wilting the table flowers. Pleasant minestrone, Shrimp with gooey cheese covering with a few vegetables."

  • "Firenze is an Italian gem on the Upper East Side. The service is amazing, the owner is extremely personable, the food is fantastic and if they don't have on the menu what you're looking for, you can order whatever you want. Truly an Exceptional dining experience."

  • "We got there for reservations at 6:30 and the place was empty, which worried me, but it turned out we were just ahead of the dinner crowd. By the time we left it was relatively full - although it's a very small restaurant, and can start to get a little cramped. Wait staff was very polite and did a nice job. The atmosphere was dark - in a good way, lots of candlelight and definitely a good place for a quiet romantic dinner. They had auto-lit menus which were a FANTASTIC feature - I always hate not being able to read a menu in a dark place, although I'm sure my date thought I looked menacing with the light shining up under my chin. The bread was average, but the pasta was very tasty. Plenty of options on the menu."

  • "We like to eat here. The food and service are very good. We had no problem ordering off the menu, which was the case on our last visit. Prices are fair for the area. We will continue to eat here."

  • "A lovely little italian place stuck in the corner behind all the construction. Certainly worth looking for though."

  • "WHILE HE AMBIANCE WAS LOVELY AND TH SERVICE WAS WARM AND WELCOMING, THE QUALITY OF THE FOOD WAS MODEST. FLAVORS WERE DULL AND MONOCHROMATIC. I WOULD NOT GO THERE AGAIN."

  • "What a wonderful,charming surprise on the upper East Side! We felt like we were in Italy. The food was delicious and enjoyed by all 3 of us. Outstanding special was the filet wrapped in bacon in a wine-reduction sauce. We can't wait to return and try more dishes."

  • "This is a small little restaurant that offers an amazing true authentic Italian experience down to the service and food. We had a reservation at 7pm and the place was not full. However, by the time we left there was a huge weight outside, and we could tell the staff wanted our table. I will definitely be back, but I will make an earlier reservation so we are not rushed out."

  • "My husband and I ate here this past Saturday night. Despite having to tune out the very loud patron next to us, we were enjoying a very nice evening until it was time for dessert. The waiter recited the desserts, we said we would like dessert and coffee but please give us a minute to decide. He replied that they needed our table and we had to decide now. His response was something we have never experienced before in dining out, which we do 2 times a week. We had arrived on time for our 7pm reservation and now it was 8:20. Not actually hours taking up a table! I can understand when it is a holiday and they have scheduled seating you are aware of before hand, but this was inexcusable. Needless to say, we will not return."

  • "We first visited this restaurant years ago on a recommendation, went a couple of times over a couple of years. Hadn't been there in several years, but our experience this week was as good as we remembered it to be! Food is done perfect, service impeccable! With a relative living in the city now we look forward to more trips to this fine restaurant!"

  • "My fiancé and I booked this restaurant for our Christmas Eve dinner while we we're visiting NYC. We loved the small, cozy and quiet atmosphere that Firenze offered. Our waiter was attentive to whatever we needed but wasn't overbearing. The menu had so many great options and the portion sizes were perfect for each of us. I would absolutely recommend dining here any time for any occasion!"

  • "The place is smaller than it looks from the street but that makes it very 'cozy'. The service was great. The waitstaff actually makes you feel like they are enjoying their jobs and are happy to be there and help you. What a pleasure! The mozzarella appetizer is good but the Caesar salad was just ok. The pasta with 4 cheeses was great but the Chilean Sea Bass was just okay. But the service and ambiance made up for the food that was decent. I would definitely go back because the experience was so enjoyable."

  • "Tables are too crowded. Noisy. Table and chairs constantly being bumped into by wait staff and other diners. Food is good. Uncomfortable, noisy place to eat."

  • "We were looking for a restaurant that had ambiance, good food and affordable, and we were NOT disappointed at all. You could easily have thought you were dining in Florence just like the name of the restaurant says. We were a party of 6 and the staff was amazing asking us if we preferred a round or long table. Clearly they care about your dining experience from food and lighted menus to atmosphere and everything in between. We came home and immediately told friends. We look forward to returning next time we dine on the UES."

  • "Having major construction due to the Second Avenue subway project directly outside the door took away from some of the ambiance. And while the food was good, the staff's constantly trying to upsell - wine, off menu otpions and even portions - took away from the enjoyment"
    Dined on 8/24/2013
  • "A very nice place hidden behind the construction on the 2nd ave subway. The only complaint was that they don't know how to make a martini."
