    Neither my Husband or I considered Italian food one of our top favorite cuisine, but after coming to Floriana’s, that has definitely changed. Everything about our dinner was perfect! The location is fantastic, only a 5 min walk from our hotel. The restaurant was cozy, romantic, clean, and welcoming. I loved the decor and the feel that I was eating at someone’s house. The service was amazing. Always had water on my table, our orders did not take more than 15 minutes to arrive, the waiter was not constantly interrupting, but made sure we were taken care of. Their menu has a great variety of options without feeling overwhelming. They have a great array of wine to choose from by the glass or bottle and also have a cocktail menu. I went for the sangria and it was absolutely delicious. My husband had something with bourbon that I can’t recall the name of now, but equally as good and strong! Now the food. Best bread and pesto! I had their yellow tomato soup for appetizer and it was chefs kiss! Best Risotto I have ever had! I like to consider myself a self-made chef and have cooked risotto many times, but this risotto was out of this world. Portion was generous, flavor was to die for and texture was amazing! Every bite was a bit of a high, fireworks of flavor and texture in your mouth! My Husband ordered the lasagna and again, absolutely delicious. Great portion, housemade pasta, mozzarella, and sauce! You can taste the freshness and the amazing flavor in every bite! We were also very thankful fof the nice anniversary surprise at the end of our meal with on the house champagne and dessert. Delicious bubbles and we had the berry sorbet which was the perfect light sweet end to a carb heavy meal. All in all, we did not want to leave and were actually the last to leave in the dining room. I wish I lived in DC, just so I could come here every week! I spent hours looking for a restaurant for this special day and I am so happy to have chosen Floriana! Best Italian food out there!

    The food was so bland… service was delightful. The amount of oil and lack of seasoning in each dish was surprising as we have dined there before. Also, for some reason the restaurant seems only interested in providing filled pastas gnocchis, only had one long pasta on the menu, the spaghetti. Such a repetitive menu with a lack of freshness especially in the summer. Was hoping to eat a light and refreshing Italian meal but gut bomb at every turn.

    Lovely anniversary dinner outside on a beautiful night, made extra special by a knowledgeable and delightful server named Autumn and very tasty entrees of Salmon and NY Strip. Floriana feels like a neighborhood gem, with families and couples alike dressed casually and enjoying an evening at the restaurant, and everyone who works at the restaurant was very pleasant, from host to water server. We'll be back.

    Very nice experience. Good wine list. Interesting preparations. One complaint. I specified “just restore body temperature “ regarding the donned of my filet. Chef was a bit off….ice cold in the center. But the cut was so good I decided to think of it as steak tartare. Very nice green sauce based on asparagus and a very rich sauce béarnaise that could have benefited from a bit more tarragon.

    We had a birthday dinner with our 12 year old granddaughter. We also had our 13 lb. Havanese dog with us. Autumn and your entire staff were so kind and welcoming. Autumn brought a chocolate mousse dessert to our granddaughter and could not have been more professional or concerned for our welfare. We love Floriana and will keep recommending it to our friends and neighbors in Kalorama. We’ll be back!!

    Food was really good. The service was good as well. Not a single issue with either of those. Our only issue was the location of our table, in the middle of the floor in front of a non-working fireplace. We moved one chair to the side of the table so as to no be in the middle of the floor. Additionally, the fireplace mantel behind us was the location of the wine glasses and the pepper mill, which caused some traffic over our heads during the meal. As a result of the table location, we did not enjoy the experience as much as we would have otherwise.

    We arrived late because of the marches and parades in downtown DC and the very many street closures. We had theater tickets and I called the restaurant to say that we were running late. The waiter asked us right away about when we needed to leave and he was excellent at managing the timing of our dinner. The entrées included: the lasagna; tuna; ravioli; and shrimp and scallop risotto. The bottle of Chianti was delicious as were all the entrées.
