We stopped in for a late lunch, and we we're thoroughly satisfied. The chicken and buckwheat soup was fresh. Our main plates we delicious too. A nice portion of pasta pomadoro and chicken... Two glasses of wine with dinner, and a fantastic piece of Tiramisu.
The restaurant’s Valentine’s dinner was a total disaster. We left after waiting over 2 hours for our entrees-and were told it would be another ‘hour’ before we could even take the food home. The servers had no idea why the kitchen was so delayed. The managerial staff did not make any attempt to keep us happy while we were happy. The only positive -to their credit -they did refund the cost of our meal as we were leaving
They were obviously over booked and couldn't handle the crowd. We were sat at 7:15 and still had not gotten our main course at 9:45. Also, there was a mandatory prix fixed menu for Valentine's Day that was not advertised on their website or Open Table, and they had no prices listed. The service was slow, the food was mediocre, and the dinner was way overpriced (over $90 a head- revealed to you when the check arrives). In addition I found this restaurant to be inauthentic (e.g., the wine list had a limited selection of Italian wine and instead offered California and Australian) and I would not recommend visiting if you are seeking a Northern Italian experience. Very disappointing considering how wonderful the previous Firenze restaurant was.
The restaurant over booked and overcharged for a poor meal on Valentines Day. We had to spend 3 miserable hours.
Pleasant experience. Reasonable prices for a nice meal. Service was attentive.
Very good service, food and menu. Highly recommend for a cozy, quiet dinner!
The food was excellent, but the service was not good most likely because it was New Year's Eve. They also seemed a little disorganized. The restaurant was extremely noisy. It is probably better for a special dinner , but not on a holiday like New Year's Eve.
Extremely poor all around. One meal was barely edible. Very noisy. Veal tough. Preparations not high end cuisine. Poor service. Expensive too!
Fantastic service and the best quality. Reminded me of my trip to Florence.
Good experience. Quality Northern Italian dinner. Quiet restaurant. Excellent service. A neighborhood gem.
Absolutely wonderful. We had ben to the ither location last Christmas and when we came back to town we knew we would go back. It is out of the general tourist area but very easy to get to from midtown by bus. We knew the restaurant would be bustling later in the evening on Christmas day so we booked for an early dinner at 5pm. Service was attentive and not rushed which is exactly what we like. Food was amazing and we had calamari and bruschetta to start which were tasty and a great start. I had the branzino for the main and it was cooked to perfection. Sadly too full for dessert. Will definitely go back when in town again and highly recommend this place.
It is always a pleasure to eat at this neighborhood favorite. We are treated well and the food is wonderful. There are always daily specials and a friendly staff. You can pop in for a drink as well. The bar is cozy, service is great and you can eat at the bar as well.
Not for everyday meals owing to prices, but otherwise very good food and lovely atmosphere.
I would love to tell you about Firenze but when we went to the restaurant at the time of our reservation there was a sign in the window saying they were closed due to a gas leak. Neither the restaurant nor Open Table informed us about the closure and we were forced to scramble to find another restaurant that could take us on such short notice. While the gas leak was out of their control, calling the people who had confirmed reservations to alert them Was NOT. Very very disappointing.
Third time there and finally was seated at the right time. Service was slow, meandering and uninspiring. Food was good but not better than any other Italian place in the neighborhood. Average all throughout.
This place overbooks its reservations. Had a bar full of angry guests being seated more than 30 minutes after their reservation.
This was our first time at Firenze. We were a party of four and everyone enjoyed their different meals. We were there on a Saturday night and the restaurant was full. Service was very good and not rushed. The waiter apologized for dinner taking a little longer but none of us noticed. We will certainly return.
This is my favourite restaurant on the Upper East Side. All the staff are extremely welcoming. The bar area is great before dinner and the food is always consistently delicious. Love it!
Since the fire destroyed their former location, this FIRENZE was extremely disappointing. We had always been impressed and pleased, but all four of us were in agreement that there was a major problem from beginning to end. Though apologetic, minimal attempts to rectify the situation were insufficient. We were saddened as we looked forward to returning. It is very unlikely that we'll return. With the experience we had, we don't expect this restaurant to be around much longer.
Been coming here for 25 years for the Veal Lambrusco! Everything else great too.
Our automatic "Go-To" place for Anniversaries and Valentines Days especially.
Still remember our now 22 year-old in a portable car seat next to our table being fussed over by the warm staff while we ate our Lambrusco many years ago. Great food and great memories here.
I was disappointed when the original Firenze burnt down. I was delighted to know it relocated. The food as usual was superb. The staff was very attentive
Good to get back to Firenze. Food as good as ever. The special green bean/mozzarella salad was superb and my Vitello Lambrusco just hit the spot. Took friends who love veal and they raved about their meals. My wife's halibut was also terrific. Keep it up Firenze!
Love the new location. Could easily pretend I was in Italy. The food is delicioso!
Wonderful services and decent food.
I live around the corner and this was my first time there.
Lovely ambiance and candlelight with great music.
Food was good if not wonderful but the service and ease made up for it.
I will go back!
Firenze is wonderful. We are so lucky to have it in our neighborhood. We wish them all the best in their new location!
We had a wonderful meal. All dishes were prepared perfectly and well seasoned. My compliments to the chef! The ambience was attractive and romantic. I'm looking forward to a return visit.
This was a pleasant find. Obviously a neighborhood place although a bit upscale. Excellent food and service however. Would absolutely return.
Nice atmosphere, good food, had to be off nite for service.
Loved the new space. A very comfortable neighborhood place. Excellent food. Large drinks and attentive service. A quality restaurant. Never disappoints.
Fabulous. Highly recommend. Prices reasonable.
Our waiter, Jack, was wonderful! He was attentive without being distracting. He described all the specials and allowed us time to review the menu. We ordered our drinks, which were also very good! I ordered the stuffed squash appetizer, which was delicious!! My husband ordered the thinly sliced carpaccio with arugula and shaved parmigiano cheese. Wonderful!! For our entrees, we ordered the swordfish piccata over spinach and chicken sorrentina with mashed potatoes and vegetables. Both were served hot and had an attractive presentation. Now for dessert. If you are a fan of zabaglione, then you must order it! It was prepared in the kitchen and brought to the table in the traditional copper pot. It was then poured over thinly sliced fresh strawberries. Absolutely AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!
very disappointed. ate at other location frequently and never had a bad meal. my companion sent her meal back twice because it was undercooked; my dish was lukewarm and not up to the previous standards of the restaurants.
I've been a regular for years and each time is a distinct pleasure
Excellent. Carpaccio and Branzino top notch. Great wine list. Fantastic atmosphere and service.
Had a lovely Father's Day dinner as a family. Food has always been good but think it is even better in this new location. The new location is a bit more upscale in feel but still warm and welcoming. Just glad to have them back in the neighborhood
Lovely place for very good Tuscan cuisine. The new space is very nice, roomy and pretty. Old fashioned service always delights and the food is reliably delicious.
My favorite Italian on the UES! So happy they have reopened! Highly rec!!
One of my favorite spots on the UES. Exemplary food, service and atmosphere at a relatively reasonable price. Perfect for a romantic date. The service is attentive without being obtrusive. A delicate balance that only the most professional wait staff learn how to master.
Perfect in every way We had a wonderful meal. Elegant old world srebice.
I was hoping for more creative Italian food I actually received something I didn't order but I was too hungry to send it back. The service is not as attentive as it could be perhaps they were understaffed
