Florio offers a variety of trattoria & bistro classics; a "greatest hits" of rustic cafe food- including Steak Frites and pan-roasted heirloom Chicken.
We feature a market-to-table local fish offering daily (as available).
Simple dishes such as Seafood Stew and house-made seasonal Pasta round out the comforting menu.
Veal, Pork & Ricotta meatballs are an everyday favorite with our regulars!

The menu changes daily to make the most of local, seasonal, organic meat, fish, and produce.
A small but savvy wine list of exceptional Napa producers, Italian specialties, and French vintners competes at the amiable bar with an admirable selection of pastis, select eau de vie and traditional spirits from around the world.

A delicious meal. They’ve done all they can to assure so UA distancing and safe dining experience. The food was absolutely delicious. Service was wonderful. We were seated outside a they even offered one-time-use blanket for us if we were cold. They’re going above and beyond. I’m motivated to go back and support them in these difficult times. 100% recommend

Suggest that Florio installs space heaters for its outdoor dining! Only thing I wanted when dining after the sun had set.

Appropriate precautions taken in COVID times: outdoor and spaced sidewalk seating, masked server. Boulevardiers & steak frites still top notch! A welcome—and welcoming—experience.

Difficult outdoor environment. High traffic area with cars stopping right next to our table to pick up food. Nearly sitting in the street. Service is slow and food was OK but not what I would expect for the price.

We have brought the kids here several times now, and we have always had a wonderful experience. The service is top notch! Attentive without being overbearing. The food is always wonderful too. It is a cozy little place, great for a romantic dinner. My husband had the pasta meat dish and I actually had the Tuna Ahi Tar Tar appetizer, as an entree. Both of the dishes were spectacular. The kids always have the spaghetti and meatballs, and we also tasted those and it was really good too. Fresh pasta in all of our dishes, and a wonderful balance of attention to detail. Will always be a favorite spot of our family's.

Excellent evening. Table was ready on time, nice cocktails, good food, great atmosphere. Biggest minus is they're adding 6.5% to the bill at the end for SF healthcare. Some restaurants don't charge anything (they just include it in the price with other taxes and obligations), but 6.5% is the highest I've seen, most others are around 2-3%. I think they're hoping people won't notice and still tip what they normally do...

Fantastic! Weve been wanting to come back since our last visit in August. From the second that John greeted us until we left, Florio was magnificent. We were lucky enough to have Laurie as our server and she was great. Wonderful cocktails followed by an excellent salad and warm olives and bread as a starter. I had spaghetti and wife had the Bolognese. Such a nice time! We'll be back on our nest trip up to SF.

I went to Florio’s for my anniversary. I do not why I didn’t know about this restaurant before! The food was delicious. I had the Kobe steak & frites with béarnaise sauce (it’s so delicious I ordered extra sauce!) My boyfriend ordered the octopus, we are a little bit of octopus snobs, but this passed the test with flying colors! The octopus was perfectly cooked and seasoned! The waiter was absolutely delightful - just the right amount of attention. Wine list was fabulous and the lighting made it feel perfectly intimate for a date. I will definitely be coming back.

We were fortunate to once again have Laurie as our server. (But honestly, they’re all good here). Florio was lively as usual with a mixture of young and old. We appreciate that the chef will leave meat out of dishes when possible. There’s always something new to try.

Florio has been our go to restaurant for years. But the last visit it was so crowded and noisy, we wondered if they had added more tables. Plus, the Bouillabaise was very salty.
