  • I eat at this restaurant regularly

    I eat at this restaurant regularly and was a little disapointed that I was charged a split charge. It was my Mom, Sister, and myself and we ordered 2 main dishes and a salad. We wanted to split everything but did not want the kitchen to split it for us we wanted to do it ourselves and I did not like the fact that they would add on extra $ for that.

    There are several restaurants in the area as pricey as Firenze, but with much better food. The wine glasses were cheap heavy weights you'd expect to find at a Denny's. I was disappointed, and won't be back soon.

    This restaurant is outstanding. The food is excellent and some choices are unusual. My only complaint is the corkage fee is too high, $20. My wife and I celebrate our birthdays and anniversary at Firenze Trattoria and usually order wine from their wine list. This year for our anniversary, we brought a special bottle of wine to celebrate and was suprised to see the charge. I think that $10 to open a bottle of wine is sufficient.

    Dined on 5/9/2008
    My wife and I celebrated our Wedding Anniversary with a very enjoyable dining experience. The waitstaff was knowledgable and exerted no pressure so we were able to relax and enjoy our meal at our own pace. Although they have an extensive wine list, they encourage diners to bring their own special bottles, which we did since it was a special occasion. A couple of mentions; the Spinachi al Cesare was an extremely tasteful variant on a Caesar salad and was big enough to split for an appetizer and the Osso Buco was a generous portion, well presented, although the bed of Saffron Risotto was a little bland and underspiced. The King Salmon with Farfalle special was moist and flavorful and the protion was generous. We would go back.

    I love the food and frequent this restaurant often. Our most recent visit we had excellent service. On my prior visit I was a little disapointed that I did not receive my opentable points. We arrived on time but there was going to be a wait. We sat at the bar and about 20 min went by so we decided to eat at the bar. When I checked my points the restaurant had shown my reservation as cancelled.

    It too bad that in such a 1st class restaurant patrons have to speak in a loud, obnoxious tone with total disregard for their fellow patrons. The great food and service was seriously marred by the fact that I had to shout at my tablemate just to carry on a civil conversation. Did I miss the sign outside this establishment that says "bring your wallet, leave your class at home"?
