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
The best experience I’ve had while being in DC. Amazing staff, the best lasagna I’ve ever had, calamari, and great drinks! Thank you for the 100% experience! Will definitely be back
Absolutely fantastic meal with nice outdoor seating (heated).
Wonderful meal. Arancini was the perfect appetizer and the duck breast is divine.
My favorite DC restaurant!
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.
Their lasagna was the best I’ve had in a while. Our server was very professional and knowledgeable as well. Great experience!
Great food, they were very nice and following all cdc guidelines. Great outdoor dining option in DC
Great experience. Dinner was very delicious! Service was courteous and friendly. A bit slow to get the table even with reservation and water replenished, but everything else was great. Will be back for sure.
Great food and great drink specials.
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
De lujo super rico
This is such a great restaurant! The food is wonderful and the service is even better. I’ve been coming here once a month for over a year and it’s always been great.
Wonderful as always. My party had duck, French toast and lasagna. All very tasty. We’ll be back.
Great place. Love the Christmas tree. Cute date place.
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.
Great tasting food, charismatic bartender and superb table side service.
Just lovely! Always a pleasure. Thank you all so much!
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!
Floriana was amazing as always! My favorite Italian spot in DC by far!
The brunch was very good. Great atmosphere! The bottomless was very good as well.
Floriana never disappoints. It was the first time I tried their French toast and it was delicious. Served with real maple syrup too.
Our server Michael was very helpful and attentive! I had the scallops and they were perfect - not overdone chewy or underdone slimy. My husband had the duck and loved it.
Always an excellent experience, great food and great ambiance.
The short rib fazzoletti were amazing. The setting near the Christmas tree was cozy, and everything was delightful as usual.
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.
Love half-price wine nights and glad I finally tried the Sunday Gravy! The outdoor seating is cozy and comfortable while also safe. Floriana never disappoints.
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.
Good as always. French toast and duck hash were perfect. And always great service.
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!
Glorious as always. Gloriana never disappoints. Don’t sleep on the black gnocchi app!
It’s airways a wonderful experience at Floriana.
Outside dining. Amazing service. Delicious food. Great setting with heaters.
Everything was truly amazing service and food. If you have never been GO
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.
