We had such a nice meal this past weekend. Food was across the board excellent. The calamari was tender, well-seasoned, and crisp; while the Brussel sprouts w/ pancetta was fantastic. My daughter had two different gnocchi (lamb and duck) that were pillowy tender and savory, and my tortelloni w/ tenderloin meat was rich and satisfying. Also enjoyed the Prosecco and red blend I had. Portions were generous, service was attentive, and I enjoy the creative re-use of an brownstone home as a restaurant. Thanks so much for such a great evening!

We celebrated my husband’s 54th birthday. Our waiter, Marco was outstanding. We had an intimate table by the fireplace. The building is historical, and charming. The food is legendary,and lived up to expectations. We will return and are happy to support this restaurant.

Bat, the manager and his team run a wonderful operation. We both ordered the sage chicken and it was off the charts. We will be back soon I hope!

We had a wonderful dinner date at Floriana's streetery on Saturday night. Heat lamps made it nice and cozy, the service from AJ was impeccable, the food and wine were delicious. Floriana's butternut squash ravioli may be the ultimate Italian dish for a fall dinner!

Two nights in a row, and Floriana didn’t disappoint! I’m traveling for work, and am a foodie, so I’m willing to spend my per diem. Even later in the evening, my reservations got me right in and seated. Excellent Italian cuisine, with a fun, sidewalk cafe that will soon be ending due to weather. Indoors things are just as tasty, but downstairs in the bar, or upstairs in the dining area, you’ll be plenty warm, and will leave plenty full.

We had a wonderful evening at Floriana. I had the lamb tenderloin that was delicious, lots of flavor, perfect at medium rare and a hearty portion. A granddaughter was sick so I took her the Tortelloni which I usually get because it is divine. She reported that continued to be true. They have wonderful bread with a pesto spread that couldn't be better. My husband had a terrific scallop and shrimp risotto. Frankly, I want to go again soon. We ate inside this time because it was really cold but we felt comfortable with lots of space between tables, high ceilings, fans and we didn't linger too long. The tented outside is very nice and works fine usually.

I cannot rave about this place enough! Our waiter AJ was super nice and cool, the food was exquisite, and the environment was really nice. I came here with my partner for our anniversary. She had the risotto (delicious!) and I had the pork chops which was also really good. This place is romantic and perfect for a date.

Floriana has adapted well to COVID requirements - I really enjoyed the outdoor dining tents (with heat lamps!) and felt safe with the level of attention they put into following the guidelines. As for the wine and food - everything was delicious. I loved the butternut squash ravioli!! Will definitely be back.

We really enjoyed Floriana. I recommend the brussels sprouts as well as Calamari for starters, the spice added to the sauce for the Calamari adds a tolerable level of heat giving the appetizer a different taste than others. The restaurant is dimly lit, romantic, and perfect for an intimate date. The entrees were good, so was the service, but the GREAT wine selection and 1/2 priced bottles on certain days is what will bring me back.
