Tale of Two Restaurants
We have eaten at Firenze's on more than one occasion. What is crazy is that sometimes - it is one of the best little italian restaurants on the East Side - and others it is wholly average at best.
The servers run hot and cold as well. And while it is still one of our favorites - I honestly can't figure out when it is going to be so so. So my general advice is to go on a night they are busy and we seem to get better food and better service.

Lamb cooked to perfection
Had a great time here once again. Lamb was cooked to perfection and the gnocchi was great. Paired with a nice bottle of wine and we were set. Oh, thank you for the free birthday dessert!

My husband and I went out
My husband and I went out for dinner to celebrate my birthday. We absolutely loved the incredibly delicious food! My husband told me that it was the best dinner he ever had! I enjoyed every bite, as well. I do have a couple of complaints, however. We were never asked by the waiter if our entrees were satisfactory - they definitely were, but still... Also, while eating my entree, I drank alot of water (spice makes me thirsty)and my glass was nearly empty for quite awhile, but no one noticed until the bus boy came by, after we ordered dessert. He politely refilled my glass. Also, I had thought we were supposed to get separate desserts, but were given one slice of cake to share. "Restaurant Week" features 3 courses per order, correct?

Firenze's is Consistently Excellent
Firenze's is a Microsoft favorite only 6 blocks from the main campus. The food is consistently excellent and the service is exceptionally friendly. The staff and particularly the owner treat you like family (or at least old friends) on repeat visits. The menu has a broad range of Italian food and I have yet to find any item they don't excel at. The owner is picky to the point of narcotic about what ingredients to use even down to the tomatoes in the caprice.

Best Italian Place on the Eastside
We've been to Firenze before, and have never been disappointed in the slightest. The pastas are uniformly superb; accept guidance on the wine list and you'll be happy; don't even think of ordering until you hear what the nightly specials are. Bene!

They never disappoint
The food was amazing and my important business client was blown away with the wine and service. They was so pleased they took pictures of the restaurant and the wine bottle so they could find their way back.

We enjoyed excellent service on a Friday night with our waiter. The Ravioli special was outstanding, and the Rigatoni was very good. Bruschetta appetizer was small but tasty. Wine by the glass prices seemed a little high, but the Chianti was good. We will be back.

Firenze is pure Italian
The owner came to our table and spoke with us and commented on what we had ordered. I had Veal Piccatta and it was excellent. Would definitely recommend.

Trying to attract a waiter's attention was a little difficult but the food was very good.
