Calamari was best we've had in awhile. Not overdue. Entrees were very good. Same for the desserts. A bit on the noisy side for easy coversation.
As always this place has great food with great mood and awesome service!
Valentines Day dinner, great menu for occasion. 4 course meal with desert, variety to choose. Very Romantic, and the service was awesome. The meal was pricey though.
Great service,great food!!
The waitress was very attentive and funny. I really enjoyed it for brunch
Overall food was pretty good, salami and cheese board was the only major flaw, butternut squash ravioli was excellent and the tortelloni mignon was quite good.
good but not great! only saw our waiter about every 30 minutes, even before we ordered and asked him to come back in a minute as we reviewed the wine menu
Had a wonderful meal--no one was unhappy with their meal. Great service.
Floriana was recommended to us and we are glad to have taken the time to be there.
I had the squash soup with pumpkin seeds...it was good. The seeds were a bit over cooked but the soup was still good flavor. I also had a homemade ravioli with spinach and mushrooms...very good. My spouse had the lasagna. He LOVED it. We were there on a Wednesday evening and the special was half off all bottles of wine. We like that too.
The service was excellent. Michael was our server. He was very attentive, as was the young woman helping him. I accidently left my CC and Michael called me to let me know. Very nice.
Floriana is without a doubt our favorite Italian restaurant in DC! We try to visit on Wednesday or Sunday when wine is half off, but it's worth it regardless! The tortelloni mignon is one of my favorite pasta dishes of all time, as well as the lobster taglierini, and you can't miss the calamari - it's done perfectly every time.
The wine and food were delicious, the service was attentive and discerning. The seafood risotto was a MUST HAVE.
Such a beautiful and intimate restaurant. Sundays are half price bottle of wine. No restrictions. Food was phenomenonel. Unique dishes you would not find on a typical Italian restaurant menu.
Floriana has been a date night "go-to" for us, going on a few years now. Food is great. Service is usually great, with the occasional hiccups, to be expected anywhere. The staff are friendly and accommodating. They value great customer service in additional to serving excellent Italian cuisine.
The food was very good, specifically the appetizers and bread were excellent. It was a great experience and the only thing that brought the rating down was the very long time between the appetizers and the main course.
We would definitely recommend the restaurant!!! Amazing food and service!
Ate at Floriana in November and really enjoyed this neighborhood restaurant. Came again for the truffle oil risotto with shrimp and scallops. Two of us ordered this. We had to send the dish back. It contained no truffle taste, was “flat”,with no taste and not very hot. The waiter was very professional and took the plates back to kitchen. The plates came back tasting as wonderful as the dish is. The waiter was very apologetic and gave us complementary desserts. He told us not to order the chocolate moose: the table next to us sent it back to the kirchen it was so bad. We ordered the pear ginger cloufount: it was the very worse dessert we ever had: gummy flour taste. The carrot cake was not much better: hard and without flavor. How these culinary disasters could be served is beyond our imagination.
I did tell the waiter our disappointment as we left. If this is the quality for this restaurant, it will not survive. Too bad, as November it was wonderful.
The waiter was very helpful with our wine choice and service was good. We came hungry having been touring for hours. The bread and pesto was not at all special, but we looked forward to experiencing the food based on wonderful reviews. The Fried Brussels Sprouts appetizer and wine (at 1/2 price on Sunday) were the highlights. My dining companions also enjoyed the Mushroom Crespelle appetizer. The Caesar Salad, even with our added anchovies was average. Two of us had the duck; the meat was wonderful but served with very bland Gnocchi. The third in our party had a pasta with somewhat more interesting gnocchi. The chocolate mousse was quite good but the tiramisu unremarkable. It was fine for the price, but we would happily have paid more for a more memorable dining experience.
Floriana still has the best lasagna. The restaurant also has a fantastic Sunday brunch.
An old reliable that always features quality food and great service. It's longevity in the same location is a testament to its enduring quality.
