Went on a Sunday at 5:15 and were the only ones there for most our meal before another family came in, so service was great, as was the food. Been there 5 times and its always been great.

I have been a customer since this resturaunt opened. I have not been there since before the covid 19 virus interrupted our lives. This resturaunt has been consistently good since it opened. The prices are very moderate, and the service has always been good, and the menu has a wide variety, and there is a good wine menu. What's not to like?

Three of us had lunch yesterday at Firenze. It is spotless and all set up for social distancing. The owner Salvatore stopped by our table for a short chat. Our waiter was excellent. There is a wide variety of items on the menu. I highly recommend Firenze for lunch and a quiet setting for friends to get-together. My two friends had not been there before and they said that they would definitely return. Dinner is also excellent there I told them.

Wonderful as always - food was delicious. Tried the salmon picatta which was probably best I've had period. And of course the delectable (evil!) limoncello cake - at last we shared!

My wife and I were a little worried to eat here because the decor was a bit on the cheesy side, but the wait staff was very friendly and the food was really, really good. Price was reasonable.

Other than the bland caprese, the food was very good. I recommend the pasta fagioli soup. Also, their cream sauce is delicious. I had chicken with mushrooms. Even the potatoes that came with it beats most breakfast places (where potatoes is more of a staple).

Loved our experience as our first meal out of COVID! Sat on patio which was lovely - however, is adjacent to strip mall/ parking lot so may not be as desirable if it were super busy. Food was amazing and service so courteous, personal and professional!

We have been eating here for years. We love coming here. We love watching Salvatore run the place, there is always multiple menu items I need to decide between, the wine is good, the service is excellent. If it's a special occasion, it feels special. If it's a bite after a movie, it's perfect. Never a bad evening here.

Firenze Ristorante Italiano continues to be the hidden gem of the Eastside.
Forget the pomp and high-rises to the West - If you want delicious authentic Italian, come to Salvatore Lembo’s Firenze and take an epicurean journey back to Tuscany.
Test your sommelier senses and treat yourself to the breadth of their imported, old-country Italian wines.

I HIGHLY recommend their Tortelinni alla Panna for an richly divine experience.

Had the Osso-bucco lamb shank last night...OMG was that good. This place isn’t the fanciest place to dine but if you are looking for a nice little neighborhood Italian restaurant where the food is really good and the price is right, this is it.

We went to Firenze for an early dinner for New Years Eve. Our reservation was for 7pm, we arrived and were seated promptly. We were out of there before 8. We felt totally pressured to eat fast and get the heck out of there so the next people could get our table. The service was prompt, but perhaps a bit too prompt!! Our server offered us bread when we sat down and then we were charged $3 for it. (would have been nice to know there was a charge). The food was ok. We love Italian food and this was just pretty good, nicely prepared but not a lot of flavor. We probably will not go back.

Excellent menu, real Italian food, probably the best in Bellevue area. Service was a bit off, usually it is not like that. I think it was because restaurant was crowded in new year eve.

$25 wine corkage fee is a bit much and not worth it. Service was slow and not great as there were numerous mistakes made. Food was nothing special so do not recommend this place.
