This is no longer a Westin property. They have a nice bar area and a small dining area. The food was okay but there was a very limited menu. We had calamari to start, I love calamari but would not recommend it here. The waitress brought our 2nd bottle of wine and had changed us from a Cab to Chianti and didn't let us see it before she poured. Not on my list of places for a 2nd visit.
Limited menu options. Both entrees were bland and uninteresting. Our server was attentive, but not very personable. My salad came only about 2 minutes before the entrees were served. With 2 simple pasta dishes and a house salad (no alcoholic beverages or dessert), bill was over $70. The restaurant was lovely but did not meet the expectation (a review we'd read described the restaurant as "laid back" --connoting casual and not-too-expensive). We were very disappointed that there was no cannoli on the dessert menu.
On the plus side, the bread with the grated parmesan and herbs was very good as well as quickly and amply provided. The house salad was truly delightful; however, when I tried to tell our server how much I enjoyed it, he had no interest in my input. Empty plate removal and beverage refills happened VERY promptly (a pet peeve of mine when that doesn't happen). A spontaneous conversation with the bartender on the way out was very warm and friendly.
A year ago I had one of the most pleasant dining experiences here, and was anxious to return while visiting Orlando. This time, the food was ordinary, expensive, and without imagination. I ordered the scampi, and the shrimp was tough, the pasta side flavor conflicted with the garlic butter of the shrimp. My colleague ordered the risotto, and it was more like rice pilaf. The waiter appropriately took the risotto off the bill, which I appreciate. But the chef can and should do better.
The service was good, and the ambiance nice. But don't go if you want a good meal.
Can't remember the exact name of the dish, but the beef tips over penne is the route you want to go here.
If you are staying at The Westin Orlando, give it a try out of convenience.
Otherwise, with the amount of choice nearby, I would not dine here.
The food is an "Americanized" version of Tuscan, and it is just okay but at more-than-ok prices.
Definitely not the dinner experience we were looking for. Noise level was very high, food not good. Honestly we couldn't wait to get out of there. Pasta was under cooked and pasty and trout was over cooked. Even bread was not done enough. Overall a very bad experience.
We were staying at the Westin for New Years Eve and so we decided to dine at this restaurant before attending a New Years Party.
overall our experience was positive. the server was very knowledgeable about the menu and the wine list. He was able to answer my questions about a couple of the entrees, and clearly recommended that we try the Lobster Bisque. I'm always thankful when the server is willing to tell you their favorites! We did share a bowl of the bisque and it did not disappoint. The flavors were spot on!
We splurged and got a bottle of wine, and our server did a great job of coming by the table on a regular basis to ensure that our glasses were kept full.
My husband ordered the shrimp scampi and seemed to enjoy it. I ordered the special which was grouper over a bed of vegetables and manicotti. The manicotti was some of the best I've ever had. The fish however was not. I still can't put my finger on what I didn't like about it. But nevertheless, I didn't care for it and so I didn't eat it.
Both the server and the manager took note of the fact that I didn't eat my fish and asked if there was an issue. I explained that I wasn't a fan of it, and they offered to bring me something else. I was quite full after having eaten all of the vegetables and the manicotti so I passed on their offer, but they insisted that dessert would be on the house. So, we ordered a Raspberry and White Chocolate frozen torte which was a great way to end the meal.
So all-in-all, I would have to say that the server and manager handled the situation perfectly. Other restaurants could learn a thing or two about customer service from them!
so I went to fiorellas for my one year anniversary with my gf and i dont regret it one bit. The staff was super attentive and friendly ( we were one of the two tables there)..but still the service was amazing! THe chef even did a special anniversary dessert trio for us. The atmosphere was calm, THE FOOD WAS AMAZING! this place is definetely worth the time and money. Thank you guys for making my special night even more special!
The food here was quite good and my seven year old enjoyed himself. The bar was lively as was during World Cup and a conference.
Chicken panini was good. Trout was good. Vibe was quiet and not energetic by any means.
