Second time eating here better than the first brussel sprout appetizer was fabulous and the Sunday gravy pasta dish is spectacular
We had dinner outside on the patio and it was lovely. The food was good and the service was superb. We'll definitely be returning!
The food was outstanding! I had scallop risotto and we shared black gnocchi for appetizer. Both were delicious! Service was excellent - staff was super attentive. The outdoor area was very nice. I will be coming back!
We were in town for a celebration. We were welcomed warmly by the matre d, and the service remained at the highest level throughout. Each person was warm, even sweet, to us, but not cloying or intrusive. I suspect that the staff training must include the concept of kindness. One of our party is vegan, and the restaurant readily provided for her needs without a hint of fuss. The cocktails were creative, the food was absolutely delicious. Each one of us had a different dish, and each one was just what each diner wanted. Wish I lived in DC and could make this a regular destination.
The food was amazing and service was very friendly. Thank you for making it a pleasant experience.
Amazing meal and hospitality, would highly recommend!
First time coming and we LOVED IT. AJ was an awesome server. Thank you! Going back next week.
Odd combinations of ingredients, main courses that were more empty plates than anything, and service that disappeared made a $100 per person evening very disappointing.
Amazing duck hash! I had steak and eggs. Very accommodating. Bottomless mimosas!
Was really great for brunch, we decided to go last minute Saturday morning and were able to make reservation easily the morning of. Bottomless drinks were well worth it, food was not bad, although my gnocchi was over cooked. Overall would go back though!
Delicious and lovely as always
Very happy with food and service.
As always, Floriana delivered. Their New York strip steak is simply outstanding, and their brussells sprouts are to die for. Can't recommend this place enough!
Fabulous service, amazing food!
Returning with friends next week
The duck breast was amazing
Back at one of our favorites after a year of takeout. Love being back. Such a fun restaurant with great food!
The food was delicious. I got the capers salad and
We had an absolutely great time, and our server really went above and beyond to make our brunch experience fun and welcoming.
The staff was so amazing!
Awesome! Service, Food, Ambience. Everything.
Good service and food. Black gnocchi was particularly delicious
Outdoor dining worked for us both from a comfort level & the extra touch of striped drapery, creating a cabana feel. The luncheon menu, while not offering an abundance of choice still delivered excellent dishes. Our waiter was totally attentive & his recommendation for the wine was spot on. I'll be going there again!
Like always, Floriana’s food and Marco’s service were the best you can find in DC!
Had a wonderful dinner outside so ambiance was not what it could be. Food was very good and wine lost good as well.
Always a great experience. Our go to place when we come to DC to celebrate a birthday or holiday or a regular Wednesday! Everyone’s meals were superb. Service excellent. Outside dining lovely.
My all time favorite restaurant in DC. It is an absolute must go when I come to visit! Food is amazing, ambiance is fantastic and the staff couldn’t be friendlier! I recommend Floriana to anyone coming to visit DC.
Our party of 6 were seated outside under the tents, which was our preference and a happy surprise since we were told we would be inside. Our server, Michael was outstanding and very attentive with a great personality. The food was delicious with the brussel sprout appetizer, scallop dinner and tiramisu being our favorites. Being our first outing together for a very long time, we stayed longer than normal and never felt pressured to leave which was appreciated.
Wonderful! We had the gnocchi and papparadelle and both were phenomenal.
Made outdoor res but still had to wait in line for a table...
Food and service were fabulous!
Floriana was simply terrific on all things!
lovely place and incredible lasagna! Would definitely recommend!
My family thoroughly enjoyed everything they got and raved about the place. And since I picked the restaurant, I felt vindicated in my selection, despite the fact that I knew they would love it.
We loved all the dishes but were HUGE fans of the seafood risotto, the scallops melted like butter in my mouth. We also loved the torelloni mignon-- the sauce it sooo yummy and well balanced.
You also can't go wrong with the brussels sprouts, black gnocchi and burrata appetizer.
Depending on what kind of wine you like, we were fans of the Super Tuscan (full body, smooth and a tad sweet) and the Sauv Blanc (light, citrusy and a lil effervescent)--both offered by the glass.
The wine/ cocktail list was extensive, and the outdoor dining setup was great. Good food all things said and done. A little pricey for Italian fare, but a great, convenient location and good ambience.
Exceptional service, friendly staff, charming ambiance. A neighborhood gem!
Fried Brussels sprouts, black gnocchi, tuna, and ciangale were standouts. Tiramisu was also incredible.
Outstanding dining experience!! A must when traveling to DC.
Wonderful experience. Delicious food, great service.
Fab dinner as always
Perfect lunch outside. Lasagna always good.
