A very nice surprise! Didn't expect it but the food is really good and the ambience nice as well. I didn't expect such a nice place in a quite little town but really impressed. I am usually not a big fan of Italian food but for this place, I really love the food.

We were there for our anniversary,
We were there for our anniversary, and were placed initially at problematic tables - first one next to a heavily trafficked aisle near the bar, then one next to a very loud , large table. The maitre d' was very responsive and moved us finally to a quiet table in the corner of the wine room, though we question why we were moved from one noisy spot to a second. If you have similar concerns, perhaps voice them when you make the reservation. After that, we received good service and excellent food. Only the desserts were disappointing. Unimpressive sorbet and a humdrum chocolate Bombe.

We appreciated the flexibility provided when our numbers changed.

too many tables shoehorned in
The seating uncomfortably close - so much so that the table behind me bumped the back of my chair several times during the meal and the waiter has to interrupt taking my order to deliver the food to the adjacent table in the corner.
This is not an inexpensive meal and the food is very good but what is most memorable is the lack of space.

Fiorino, consistenly good
Food was great (rabbit ragu rich and tasty, salmon perfectly done). Packed bar scene made the place feel alive. Service was faultless.
5/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
great food, poor service
Food is excellent at this place.
Service was not very good: we came early (because of kids) so there were 15 employees all over us; plates were taken away before we were finished; etc..
Go later on the evening and you have probably have a good experience

Consistency is so important when selecting a restaurant. Whether its for a special occasion or just a place when you want to talk, Fiorino's always fits the bill. Service is always top notch and the food is always delicious and beautifully presented.

They were very attentive to
They were very attentive to our comments from OpenTable. They were notified that it was our anniversary and wrote a special note in chocolate with our dessert. One of the owners visited our table, as well. The food was fantastic!

Always good at Fiorino
The food, service and atmosphere are always really good at Fiorino. We love going to dinner there.
5/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Would've given them 4 overall but..
I only gave them 4 overall stars because the main course meat was undercooked, ruff, & need seasoning. The veggies & pasta where also bland & needed seasoning. Everything else was great! They were very attentive & constantly checking on us. The soup & desert was fantastic!! The walls and ceiling in the resturant need to be updated & it was a bit pricier then I expected.

Side street gem and old-world charm
Satisfying lunch menu. Fennel salad delicious and large enough to split as an appetizer. Calamari as the main course cooked to perfection. Wait staff very attentive and professional. Food a little pricey for lunch, but would definitely go back.

What a find!
We chose Fiorino's for an evening with our friends who are moving. We made the right choice. The food was delicious, the wine library room very charming atmosphere and the service is most attentive. By the time we finished our meal, the noise level was a little more than I would have liked but it wouldn't stop us from returning.

Respite from the Mall
A pleasant dinner following some hard shopping. We are not locals so this is not a restaurant I am familiar with. Well, it was good, not ground-breaking , but large portions, not as expensive as I imagined, and just relaxing enough. A good choice. We would go back.
6/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fabulous Italian restaurant
Excellent service. Great Italian food. The table was exactly what we requested--secluded and romantic for celebrating our anniversary. My appetizer was a generous antipasto plate with fresh mozzarella and marinated asparagus. Yum! My husband ordered the Caesar salad which he found to be a bit ordinary. My rabbit ragu on pappardelle was delicious. Again the portion size allowed for sharing. My husband had duck breast which he thought was a bit under seasoned. Next time he will stick to ordering Italian specialties. The Brunello wine we had was fabulous and priced fairly. We love this restaurant and have eaten there three times which is something because we live in Oregon! When we are on the East coast we always try to stop here.

Solid Up Scale Italian
We went to Fiorino with a large group for a special occasion. The food was good up-scale italian. The room was nice, and the service was good. The place was packed with groups so it was very loud and hard to hear. My son loved is calamari and his spagatittini with fresh tomatoes. My husband had the octopus salad to start which was also good. I had the risotto which was good creamy with good texture, but lacked a flavor punch. We liked the bread and herb oil at the table. Everyone in our group seemed to like their meal. We would go again.
6/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
An 11:45 AM lunch reservation was perfect for a business lunch with a friend. Parking in downtown Summit can be a challenge, so the 15-minute early start before the mad rush made a huge difference. Lunch was excellent (the salmon was grilled to perfection). You will enjoy this gem in the heart of Summit!
6/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
We love it
Go every year (or more). One of our favorites. We'll be back many times.
7/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Service spotty but excellent food
If you can stand not seeing your waiter for long periods of time, you will like Fiorino's. All the food is excellent--especially the pasta. The atmosphere is fun and bustling and the staff is nice.
7/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
My wife and I have been to Fiorino quite a few times. We were there again on Saturday night, and were pleased with the food and the evening once again. Beautiful room, nice bar, accomodiating wait staff and great food. This time we enjoyed baby steamed clams, soft shell crabs and black ink pasta with calamari and peppers. Interesting and very good.
7/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had not been in several years do to the fact that we moved from the area and had very young children, but the Biticci family has always done a superb job. We were not disappointed. The food was excellent as always. I would not recommend it for very young children as we had a table next to us where the children were screaming and it's not that kind of Restaurant.
I highly recommend it. We will be back soon.

Nice lunch option
My friend and I both had pasta lunch entrees. Perfect size, homemade, terrific texture. Also, attentive but not overbearing service.
8/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fiorino's is a great restaurant not only for celebrations but for casual dining. I love the relaxed feeling of the place. The service is always well timed and friendly. You never feel rushed. I had the rack of lamb and it was delicious. I would heartily recommend.
8/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Although very attentive.....main course came out right after appetizer...felt rushed

Two couples were able to celebrate
Two couples were able to celebrate a work anniversary of one of us in grand style. The honoree chose the double pork chop, two others had the halibut, and one had the veal scallopini. The food was delicious! We had a table in the back, which was quiet for conversation. The service was excellent. All in all, a memorable celebration.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food and service were outstanding. The noise level a bit high.

Always reliable, always enjoyable
Always reliable, always enjoyable - Fiorino never misses. My family (father, mother, brother, sister, me) have been enjoying the Fiorino scene for years now, and it always manages to lift our spirits. You can be assured a place is good when you continue to look forward to going there even though you've been there many times and know the menu inside and out. The wait staff is professional and friendly. The brothers (owner's sons) are veterans of the restaurant scene and always go out of their way to accommodate. With so many changes happening from day to day, it is nice to know you can count on Fiorino's to consistently offer a top notch experience. What a great place!

Food is excellent. The papardelle
Food is excellent. The papardelle with rabbit ragu absolutely delicious.
Service not quite on same level as food but all in all a great restaurant. We were having dinner with friends, restaurant not overly busy (Labor Day Weekend yet seemed like wait staff anxious to move us along.

An Amazing Experience ...
My husband and I recently went to Fiorino to celebrate our one-year wedding anniversary and we were blown away! We ordered a variety of items on the menu and each was delicious. It's hard to pick out my favorite, but I really enjoyed the marinated grilled octopus, quail over porcini risotto and the imported mozzarella appetizer. The food was delicious and plated with love.
Plus, the service was impeccable. I've been to a lot of restaurants and the wait staff was extremely attentive and anticipated our needs. We really got to sit back and enjoy our meal.
I would return to this restaurant in a heartbeat!!

I recommed this place to all my friends

Truly a great experience for a birthday lunch! The choices were plentiful in addition to the options on the dinner menu which were available for lunch. The staff knows their business and the chef can cook. The right setting without having to track into the city on short notice.
The lamb shank was perfect as well as the pastas ordered. Truly a great restaurant with the right attitude.
10/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, but too noisy
We loved the food -- that's a 10+ -- the service was good - not great, but it was too noisy -- hard to talk, so I'd downgrade it to an 8.
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Little Place!
Fiorino's came highly recommended for meeting with co-workers and business associates. It worked well, and the food was delish!
10/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had the almond crusted fried calamari appetizer and two delicious entrees, veal scallopine Mediterranean style with sun dried tomatoes and capers and the chilies chicken breast. Both meals were very good. Service was very attentive. We have been to Fiorinos many times, with friends and alone. Many of the specials were the same as was the standard menu. I would look forward to some new appetizer and entree selections. The pumpkin gelato was a nice seasonal option for dessert.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Yummy food and attentive staff
We chose Fiorino for my birthday celebration - a date night away from the baby. It was perfect! We loved our food and the ambiance was nice - it felt like everyone knew each other. The bar was hopping - from both people just chilling out and people waiting to be seated, but it didn't get too loud. I would definitely go back for the food and GREAT service!
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Consistent great food and service
Food and service the way it is supposed to be. Attentive staff including the management. Try lunch or dinner; there are few places in the region with this level of authenticity.

Everything was very good except for the noise level..Parking is a problem.
i parked on the lower level in the parking garage and received a $25.00 ticket. When parking in Summit be sure to explore all areas for restrictions. This year my tickets hae totalled $55.00 so far.

Love this place
We always love dining at Fiorino. Best upscale bar in the area with fantastic classic and creative cocktails. Definitely one of the best Italian restaurants in nj, you can tell they use good fresh quality ingredients and everything is homemade. This is our favorite Italian restaurant,
