The food, we ordered,lasagna was of course excellent. We were able to have pleasant conversations, but our waitress was always there for anything we needed. We tend to come to Firenze for special occasions, but this is the first time for lunch and in the patio. If I lived closer, I would come more often. Never been disappointed.

I’ve been going to Firenze for years and tonight was just off. Always have told everyone the lasagne is the best I’ve had anywhere in the world but tonight it lacked flavor, in fact the entire meal lacked seasoning and flavor.

If you have a poor response to some seasonings on steaks, don’t forget to order without them. They will fix it for you as you want it. Also no hot peppers are available so bring your own. We have eaten here 20 times and the service is always good.

Billy behind the bar is made for that job - kind, charming, engaging. Exactly what you hope for. Our waiter was much the same but understandably busy - The busboys must be new and probably just need a little training . . dropping plates and bread at the table without acknowledging our presence just seemed a little odd. We have eaten here often and enjoy both the food and the ambience and those did not fail us in any way. We both tried dishes that were new to us and we loved them.

No acknowledgement by receptionist or waitress. Service was slow and inattentive. I wanted my lovely wife to feel special but didn’t accomplish that. THE FOOD WAS EXCELLENT. Head receptionist came to the rescue and tried to assuage. Thank her.

Both food quality and service were as great as we remembered. Reasonable spacing between tables - and all were in use even at 8:00 pm, attesting to the popularity of the place. Our party of four all agreed that their food choice was delicious with generous portions (some will become today’s lunch).
