We went here for our engagement dinner and it felt so special! Our waiter was attentive but made us feel safe. The food and wine were AMAZING and delicious. We loved their decorations with Vice-President Harris. A perfect experience.

Floriana has done a great job with their Kamala Harris themed outdoor seating. Not as nice as sitting indoors but about as good as it gets in the circumstances.

So it's cold outside and I won't eat inside so the noise level is irrelevant, but I had one of the best meals I've ever had! Since it was cold, I ordered a squash soup which was, thick and creamy and delicious and had the tuna dusted with mushrooms. IT WAS ONE OF THE BEST TUNA DISHES I've eaten out. The fish was cooked perfectly with vegetables on the side which paired perfectly.

Now my favorite tuna in the city is at Corduroy's where the chef performs magic with his tuna...........but this was just as delicious but different.

Definitely will go back

We had lunch outdoors on a warmish winter afternoon. The service was very good, the food quite nice and the ambience very pleasant. It was a Wednesday and a half price wine day so we got a bottle of Massaya, a Lebanese wine, that was very good.

We came here for NYE and it was a big regret. Yes the food is ~decent~ but its not the best. We got the risotto and lamb gnocchi as recommended- portions were small. Gnocchi was not the best- not a lot of flavor, mostly just very oily and I literally had maybe 1 piece of lamb in my gnocchi. We got the burrata for appetizer and it just was not good. Lack of flavor.
Overall I would not come here again. Its really not worth the money we spent $85 and ended up getting popeyes afterwards because we were still hungry

We dined at Floriana on the last evening before the shutdown in DC. It was magnificent. The service by Michael was impeccable, replete with helpful comments and suggestions. The food was excellent: well-prepared and tasty. We both enjoyed the squash soup. The salmon was exceptional; and my guest enjoyed two half-portion pastas - both outstanding and more than ample. The manager, Bat, is always a welcoming presence who once again extended warm hospitality and careful monitoring that our experience was exceptional. It was.

I came to Floriana Friday evening 12/18 at 7:30 on a date. I believe our waiter's name was AJ. He was friendly, on point, and very attentive. We loved how cute and quaint the upstairs dining room was. The appetizers, wine, and cocktails were good but really what completely swept us away was the lasagna. I am not joking, it was the VERY BEST i've ever had and my date agreed as well. To end the perfect dinner, we both shared a coffee flavored gelato. The ambience, dacor and atmosphere were lovely and we would highly recommend this to everyone. 5/5 stars!

Under attractive black-and-white striped tents with adequate heat and impeccable service, Floriana's outside seating is warm and comfortable and leaves nothing to regret - dining here is a much of treat and special occasion, even when the occasion is just a weeknight, as it always has been!

THIS RESTAURANT WAS SEEN ON A WALK DOWN WATER STREET IN WILMINGTON, NC. WE DECIDED TO TRY IT AS THE REVIEW INDICATED IT WAS SIMILAR TO PASAQUALES IN EAST AURORA , NY. IT WAS ONE OF THE MOST WONDERFUL GASTRONOMICAL EXPERIENCE WE HAVE HAD IN OUR TRAVELS AROUND THE COUNTRY. REALLY UNIQUE AND EXTREMELY TASTY. THIS CHEF IS A MASTER OF HIS CRAFT AND THE SERVICE WAS EXCELLENT AND VERY INFORMATIVE. IF YOU'RE IN WILMINGTON, NC DON'T MISS THIS EXPERIENCE.

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 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.
