Diner Reviews
  • "Fiore is a nice place that is more about the atmosphere than the food. The food is very good but no better than the local Italian "dives" offer for 1/2 the price (or less). This is the kind of place you go to for a special night out. It's expensive for what you get but I would still recommend it for a nice romantic evening or for a special occasion."

  • "The food was delicious, very fresh and great flavors. The noise level is borderline too loud between the restaurant patrons and the noise on the street. It was a great experience."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "There is nothing wrong with this restaurant... but nothing special either. It's just another traditional Italian restaurant, just like we've had for years. Prices are way too high... A little bit of a tourist trap in the Italian district."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "Fiore's was recommended by a family member from Boston so I knew I had to go. Our server was nice (a little slow but he was slammed) but very informative. We took his recommendation about going across the street for dessert. My dinner was outstanding! I had the lobster special! I'd highly recommend!"

  • "The entire staff of the restaurant was fantastic! Everyone was attentive and pleasant and knowledgeable and clearly understood customer service. The food was fantastic....it really was just a great overall experience."

  • "There are dozens of similar restaurants on this street, and they all look pretty good. I've never eaten at any of the others, so I cannot compare Fiore to the others in this area, but in comparison to other Italian eateries in other cities, it is definitely above average. The prices are a little high, but probably in line with other Boston restaurants. The service was very good except for the hostess, who seemed bored and not at all happy to see us. The waiter, Anthony, was great, though - very enthusiastic, professional and attentive. The menu has all of the traditional Italian fare. Our meal was good. There are a lot of choices in this area, but I don't think you will be disappointed with Fiore, but probably no wowed either."

  • "Booked a res after reading great reviews and tiring of same place every time in Boston...dolce vita. Loved that our reservation was immediately honored even though a bit early and it Was a very busy Friday night. That was about the end of the "love" unfortunately. We were taken up to this upstairs room with a huge round table set for 8 or more....there were 5 of us. Trying to have a conversation was nearly impossible, particularly with other large boisterous tables in the room. Felt like we were at a lame wedding reception, it was so outdated and stale. Food-wise, Nothing stood out. At over $300 for 5 of us, I simply expected more."

  • "I took my boyfriend here for his birthday, and it was perfect. We had to wait ~30 minutes to sit on the roof, so we just got a drink at the bar. The food and ambience was amazing. We'll definitely be back."

  • "We were visiting Boston, happened upon this restaurant, and were pleased with our choice. Service was wonderful. Made us feel as if we were alone in the restaurant even though there was a full house. Food was delicious and served within a decent time frame. Excellent choice for a little Italian in Boston!"

  • "We have been here twice and both times were great. Outstanding food !!! Very good service. We have been going to the North End for 50 years and been to many restaurants, some good, some bad some great and some overrated. This is now , by far, our favorite and will be our only recommendation!!"

  • "While in Boston for a few nights wanted to go to the North end for Italian. Had a few suggestions. A trusted friend recommended this place. Had a 6pm reservation. Called and asked about an outside rooftop table. They don't reserve them, but if when you get there, they have a table upstairs its yours. It was a hot day but aside from complaints from my 15 year old, it was a great table. Food did not disappoint. After asking waitress for a suggestion, I went for the Bombalotti Gamberi a large pasta with seafood and a rose sauce. , my picky daughter had gnocchi, husband had cavetelli with broccoli rabe and sausage. All delicious. Definitely would recommend and would return for sure."

  • "I went here for Lunch on a tuesday afternoon, I thought the food was good, nothing spectacular. I had a terrible experience with the waiter, Nick. We were never offered specials, I only knew that they were available after hearing another waiter offering them to his table. We were never served bread, i had to ask, after that was brought i had to then ask for butter or oil for the bread. He claimed i had not requested that to go along with the bread. Then, we were never offered dessert. I did tell the host about our expereince and he was most apologetic. It was dissappointing due to this was my daughters treat for me on my 50th birthday."

    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Excellent food - served by good and knowledgeable wait staff. Attentive to detail and requests. We dined on the patio which was fun -although sometimes interrupted by the hubbub and sirens from the streets of the North End - but that is part of the ambience of the area."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "The food and ambiance was fantastic. Unfortunately we had lunch on the patio while a delivery truck with compressor sat for the entire two hours in front of the restaurant and the compressor was loud and on. We did ask the wait staff who had little control over the situation."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "I've been to Fiore's often, but Monday night's experience was awesome! I had the lobster special - pricey, but well worth it. The lobster was delicate and served beautifully over fucilli, shrimp and scallops. The sauce was just right. Great service on the roof deck. We'll be back!"

    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "Was a little disappointed. Ordered the pasta special with lobster and it was not good. The appetizers and salads were just okay and the service was good. Very loud and cramped. Waiters kept bumping into our chairs all through dinner, very annoying."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "Returned to Fiore after having been there a year ago. There with our kids so could not enjoy the great rooftop bar/dining area, but still enjoyed solid service and very good food. Will go again if we have the chance."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "The food is fresh and delicious! And the waitress went above and burying to accommodate us, while eating out doors on a very hot day!"
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Food was great. But I prefer my food hot. It won't stay hot when it is sitting directly next to you on a tray but not served to you until my husband walked over to it and brought it to our table. Did I mention we were seated outside? So birds, air, all kinds of things blowing around while our food continues to sit on the tray. The waiter apologized and brought us a free round of drinks. This did not only happen to us. Each time a tray of food was delivered from the kitchen it took quite a bit of time to serve it to a table."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Fiores came highly recommended. we were not disappointed. The noise level was high, but that might be due to the large crowds gathering to watch the soccer game. Exciting and lots of energy. We will definitely return."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "My husband and I were excited to grab seats up on the roofdeck. His only complaint was that there was a lot of fencing and you couldn't really see much beyond that. The twinkle lights are adorable, and the retractable roof is fantastic (since it did start sprinkling a little bit!). The antipasto appetizer was great, with the real winner being the creme brulee dessert. I got the gnocci w/ pomodoro sauce, which was just OK. I didn't love the tomato skins in the dish, but otherwise it was fine. Bread basket was perfect, and they even offered to bring us more (yes please!). Our server was Amir, who was fantastic. I'm not sure exactly how good they are about being careful re: food allergies, though, so be careful."

  • "Dining on the roof deck is def worth the visit. Great atmosphere, food is good and fun times! "
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "The restaurant has a nice rooftop deck dining area, though you should be prepared to wait for it. The food was good (not amazing) but the service was abhorrent. The waitress was incredibly rude and curt with our group, and we will not be returning because of it."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "This restaurant is pleasant enough, the service is fine, there's nothing really wrong with the food. But I wanted it to be fantastic because this is the North End, which is where you go for Italian food, plus it was a special occasion. Instead, it was all profoundly mediocre, which was profoundly disappointing. I won't say anything else about the food except that you'll probably recognize it from any number of other average Italian restaurants. Oh, and the waiter never offered coffee or dessert, he just brought the check, which I thought was odd. Rather than fuss about it, we all just went to Modern Bakery across the street and let the memory of this meal fade away."

  • "The service and food at Fiore's is amazing ! The outdoor eating are (heated) is quaint and lovely with hanging light and a bar. The service was great, too. A very friendly waiter, Paul, check on us often and was very attentive to us! I can't wait to enjoy the delicious food again soon. "
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "Our group was running late and they were extremely helpful and held our table for 6. I ate the lobster, shrimp and scallop and pasta special and it was delicious! I had plenty of leftovers. Our waiter "O" was extremely knowledgeable and made the dining experience even more enjoyable. I look forward to returning and checking out their roof deck."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "Appetizer served barely warm. Calamari tasted as though it had been either sitting under a warming light or made earlier. Server never cracked a smile despite our best effort to lighten things up and keep it pleasant. Seemed he was so over being in the food service industry, it was almost uncomfortable. Entrees were just okay. Very average food for the prices charged. "
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "I take family and friends here whenever they're in town and it's always a hit. I also took my boyfriend last New Year's for a romantic dinner. The service is always fantastic, every server is excellent and really knows the menu. I'd highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a great dinner in the North End regardless of the reason. "

  • "My wife and I dined here on valentines day this past year and had such a wonderful experience we decided to go back this past Friday for a spontaneous night out. We love the menu and both times my wife and I got the specials that were being offered and were so happy we did. The staff is so warm and welcoming. Such a great appt!"

  • "It was a busy Saturday so we checked Open Table to see what we could find with an open reservation. We booked Fiore 10 minutes before walking in and got seated right away (people just walking in had at least a 45 minute wait). It took a little for our waiter to come over, but it was understandable as it was a busy night. I ordered the chicken parm, which didn't come with pasta, so I had to order a side. The chicken was very good but the pasta was way undercooked. My brother ordered Cavatelli Con Rapini E Salsiccia, which he finished to the last bite, and my boyfriend ordered a Saltimbocca Di Pollo. He didn't really enjoy the prosciutto and he also had to order a side of pasta, which was very over-cooked. Good service, mediocre food. "

  • "i often read negative reviews with some disbelief as i am rarely disappointed with the meal at a restaurant as established or as highly rated as restaurant fiore. Simply put, the food was not great. All eight of us found the entrees lukewarm at best and one of us returned their pasta dish as the noodles were fixed in clumps. The antipasta was fresh and enjoyed by all as well as the oysters. The entrees were disappointing. Service was very good and we were given a table by the window. There were a lot of graduations that day in Boston so the restaurant may have been stretched to the limit. Either way, the restaurant is considered fine dining. this was not our experience."

  • "Nothimg measured up to expectations. It is very expensive for the poor quality. Dry chicken dish, salty calamari sauce, heavy creme brulle, which was clearly not fresh are all examples of the food we ordered. Give this place a miss!"
