Very busy, but well run valentines dinner service. Super small waiting areas creates difficult situation, so go early. On non holiday nights I'm sure it's fine. The meal was very tasty.

We had a wonderful Valentine's Day meal. The setting was very romantic and the food was excellent. Salvatore and his staff were very friendly and welcoming.

Went there for Valentine’s. It was hard to find from GPS. When I called for direction, no one answered. I arrived 15 min late and was ushered to the ancillary dining room with no table cloth. It looked like a cafeteria table. It was next to kitchen and hallway when I specifically asked to be seated away from traffic. Dining room was noisy mostly because the managers flirting with patrons loudly in Italian. I learned that they were from Sicily. So I don’t know why the restaurant is named Firenze. Service was slow and inattentive. When I finally got my linguine I was shocked how anyone can mess up pasta dish so badly. It smelled like an old sock. I and my date hurried through the dinner and got out in a hurry to find a place for dessert to wash off the bad taste in the mouth.

Italian institution in Bellevue if you are in the know. We've been going here for 15 years. The northern Italian menu is outstanding and authentic. They use fresh ingredients. There are so many wonderful dishes on the menu but the Filet with Cognac creme sauce is my favorite. The Pollo Gorgonzola will be the best one you've ever had. Salvatore, the proprietor is fun loving and prideful of his establishment and treasured guests.

We love Firenze, and have been going since they opened so many years ago. The atmosphere is hushed, but the aromas coming from the kitchen are so tempting. Plan on taking your time, sip some wine, enjoy your company and the person(s) you are with. This about savoring the experience, not a dine and dash meal. FETTUCINE AL SALMONE is my absolute favorite. Enough for dinner, and lunch the next day!

WE have been patrons of this restaurant for nearly 5 yearsusing the passport card. But things have REALLY changed with their pricing!!! Although the Passport website states one free entree ( we had ordered a $45 steak, and a $29 seafood dish), they only deducted $22 off the total (on top of addubg the 18% gratuity). They also charged us $4 extra to spilt the steak with a child! On top of this we ordered a $35 wine, $7 salad and a dessert. They also charged us $5 for the bread. The pasta dish was not of the same caliber as other times, and my husband stated "it's not the same, they must have a new chef", stating it was not nearly as tasty as in the past. We will not come back....too many additional fees and not adhering to the Passport unlimited website discounts. WE are really disappointed!!!

My first experience with the restaurant years ago was great. The food was delicious. In fact I was so impressed I brought my employees to it. The experience last week was disappointing in terms of the food. The environment was good as always. My husband's food was so salty he struggled to eat it. It was his birthday so this made double disappointing. My mom's food was over cooked. My daughter hardly eat her food as well, although I can't remember the reason, I think it might have been over salted as well.

In a neighborhood shopping area...not scenic. The place is intimate and great outdoor dining on a warm evening. We had a pasta dish and a prime rib and both were exceptional. I will definitely go again.
Owner, an Italian national, was on the premises overseeing everything and was making sure everyone was 100% satisfied. We were!

We chose to go to Firenze to celebrate my husbands' birthday with our daughter and her honey. The food was really very good and the service ( Tyler was our waiter) was terrific.
We had not been there for many years and were surprised at how few patrons there were for a Saturday night.
I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

This restaurant used to be one of our favorites, and one that we would gladly recommend to friends. After our experience on Friday...horribly slow and neglectful service, and disappointing food (taste and portions)...we will never return. Service was so poor that we decided we would be better off getting our dessert from the QFC bakery. Top it off, they automatically added an insulting 20% tip to our bill. Did the old owner leave?
