    We are regulars. Brought some business associates there from out of town earlier this week. They absolutely loved it there as we do. Their extensive list of Pasta choices, along with a variety of Sicilian classics, and specials, always makes going there a treat. Their pricing is amazing as well, considering all you get. Have a nice choice of wines and desserts as well. Five Stars from me, we will be back again, and again..........

    Enjoyed the lunch buffet,all homemade Italian dishes, at a fair price. There was a party of 30 people dining at the same time, so the waiting line did back up slightly, but I don't think that is the norm. A small restaurant to fit a buffet into, but it was still enjoyable.

    A group of us attended lunch at this restaurant which was very good. The food was very fresh and the service was good. The only thing I would comment on is when presenting the specials no prices were given and it was suprising that the speical was more expensive then some of the items on the menu.

    Restaurant is amazing, great food, great ambiance, great prices. Honestly though, we still had to wait 20-25 minutes even with the reservation. We will definitely go back, but for an earlier dinner. It just is too crowded later in the evening.

    a friend and I were there on a Tues night--not overly busy, but still quite a few tables occupied. food was great--lobster ravioli is devine. Salads fresh, bread good, desserts wonderful. This was my second visit--will definitely go back. Our waitress, Holly, was absolutely fantastic--showed just the right amount of attention, helpful with suggestions and really funny and pleasant--she made our visit very special.

    Italian food done well. Sometimes the kitchen is a little slow or there is not enough wait staff on shift, but generally it's worth the wait. Really nice atomosphere that can get loud when the house is full.

    First time at Fiorelli's and it won't be our last. The food was incredible, the artichoke appetizer and the mozzarella appetizers were excellent in very way. So fresh. We had a server (Holly) that was awesome, she was friendly attentive and have some excellent recommendations for wine and dinner specials. I think we were the last table to leave that night, we'll be back !

    Dined on 3/1/2013
    First time at this place, we arrived a little before 6 and were seated right away. The service was great, the food was wonderful but a bit over priced. I did not expect to pay $35.00 for the special, which was shrimp, clams, crabs, peas and tomatoes over bow ties in a nice white sauce, it was delicious, generous portion, but very over priced. I would certainly go back again to try to the pizza which looked wonderful, but if ordering the specials make sure you ask the price first.

    This is a restaurant that we go to for good Italian cuisine with out the outrageous prices. The food is great, it's one of the few places that even a picky eater like myself, can pick something off the menu and not have to ask for substitutions or changes. This time i got focciata pizza, and my mother tried their artichoke appetizer and got shrimp as part of her meal. We both could find no complaints. And the serving are big enough that we always end up with leftovers, so it's really like getting two meals for us. As always, we'll be back.

    I took my girlfriend her for Valentine's Day and the service could not have been much worse. We had to ask the waiter for silverware, a wine list along with bread to go with our meal. The bottle of white wine that I got was not chilled and the food took forever to come out of the kitchen. The food overall was very good but due to the very poor service, I will not be back again.

    What a great place. Food is excellent!!! REAL Italian not that over garlic immitation italian most restaurants serve. FYI real italian food uses very little garlic. Service is great. We went on Valentines Day (party of 6) so needless to say it was packed. The service was still great. Our food came out timely and hot. Most importantly not dried out from heat lamps. My personal biggest bonus is Fiorello's is just outside the main business district of West Chester so they have parking. I have never had a bad meal here and have eaten at Fiorello's many times. Most times with parties of 6 or more. If you have never been, you must try Fiorello's Cafe.

    The food was the best part of the visit. Service was good. The space between tables was inadaquate, leaving the server unable to reach our entire table. Because of the close quarters, the Fiorello's is rather loud. All said, it is worth a second visit.

    Great menu variety of pastas, meat and fish dishes, pizza. Had a very good pasta puttanesca, others at our table had chicken pizzaiola, veal piccante, a lobster/scallop pasta special, and rigatoni fiorello, which had a meat sauce. All served with salad and shared a great artichoke appetizer. Prizes reasonable, not expensive but not inexpensive. Everyone loved their dishes, it was very crowded so service started a little slow but ended up great as our server was very friendly, helpful, and engaged the table. We will be back. We all had leftovers to take home. We'll be back.

    Fiorello's Cafe is everything you would expect at a fine Italian restaurant. The lunch buffet (not all days) was spectacular, unusual, and contained delicious items not usually seen at a buffet. The chicken marsala was made with a light marsala red sauce that was tasty. They had 2 small groups (20 each) that day and things flowed smoothly as the staff did a good job in handling everyone's request.

    The cuisine is authentically ITALIAN. Without a doubt the best Italian food I have ever eaten. They make their own fresh mozzarela and their cannoli is to die for. They also have a woodfired brick oven Pizza for the more casual occassion that is fit for a king. I was temped to write a lousy review because I want to keep this place all to myself but the word is out and you better have reservations. Seriously if you are Italian, as I am and always searching to the real deal, this is the place for both fine dining and can also be casual when the mood hits you.

    My dinner of chicken parmasean was very good and more than enough to share with my daughter. My friend had veal marsala, which she said was "OK"; the veal was tough. My daughter's tooth fell out during dinner and the bartender kindly gave us a little cup with a lid to put it in! Our table was a bit cramped. I found the experience enjoyable; my friend less so.
