Florentine’s is an independently owned and operated restaurant located in the quaint historical area of downtown Fullerton. If you’re looking for that easy-going local eatery that offers everything the “chains” don’t, this is your kind of place. Friends and family gather here often to celebrate just about any occasion or, just hang out. Entertainment is offered nightly right next door at their Tuscany Club. Dancing is available there on the weekends and happy hour is offered 4-8pm Monday through Friday.
Florentine’s some of the best BBQ in the OC. Their new menu still offers some of their old favorites like pastas, steaks, salads and seafood. They've reduced prices and increased their portions so come on down. Florentine's Grill has received numerous high ratings for their outstanding food, and friendly service. Kids’ menu is available. This truly is, one of Orange County’s best kept secrets!

We showed up to the doors closed saying it was closed for a private event. No one told us ahead of time
Luckily the good old standby chomp was down the street.

I made a Open Table reservation thinking it would be busy but it wasn't at all. There was maybe 14 people counting us and we were greeted by manager who was very nice. Then we didn't see him or a waiter/waitress for at least 8 minutes. Ordered drinks and that took at least 10 minutes and the bar had 4 people. Finally we ordered our meal and it took extremely long to get considering it wasn't busy at all. Had to go to the bar ourselves to get refills on our drinks. Not sure why the service was so bad unless they were out back visiting. Food was good and I only ordered appetizers. We won't be going back sorry to say.

Florentine's is our go to Restaurant for weekend dinners. We normally bring family and friends but this last visit was just my wife and myself. The service is outstanding. We normally are attended by Silvano but all the servers are great. We have never had a bad dish here.
The food is always temperature hot and tasty. The pasta is always prepared properly and not overcooked. The Rib Eye Steak, my favorite is large and great tasting.
I guess that you can tell that I like this place.
Try it and you would be hooked.

Food was good. Service adequate. There was no one in the restaurant but us. It was a cute place but nothing that special. Don't know if we'll be back.

This restaurant has excellent food and reasonable priced drinks and wine.
Good selection of Pasta Dishes, Seafood and Steak/Ribs.
Service is always top notch. Ask for Silvano and he will take great care of you.

If you expect a burger place you place you probably won't be disappointed as much as I was

Our server was new, a little nervous, but very attentive and provided excellent service. The food was good. But, the garlic mashed potatoes seemed processed or pureed. The vegetables were not overcooked. The veal piccata was very good and a nice portion.

I remembered Florentine's from the early 2000s and took business associates with me for dinner. The restaurant was not as well maintained as I remembered and mostly empty (Monday @ 6:30 pm). Prices were reasonable.
