Dined al fresco with friends. Food and service were excellent. Although there were many space heaters, it was a bit chilly.

The restaurant and staff did a great job under difficult circumstances, when the fluid Covid regulations forced them to close indoor dining in mid-afternoon. We were seated outdoors in a well-heated outdoor patio. Staff was very efficient and accommodating. And of course, the food was great. Began with a vegetable soup that was served hot. For entrees we had Salmon and Sea Bass. The green beans that came with were cooked perfectly. Portions were large enough to take some home and make lunch/dinner the next day. With all the adapting we have to do these days, the restaurant handled it all very well.

The food was excellent. The waiter was very slow. There were too many time gaps between being seated and and having our waiter come to the table. This continued throughout the evening between courses. This is one of our favorite resturants!

Great place to dine outside in the courtyard. Excellent food, drinks and service. Prices are a bit high (probably b/c of COVID) - particularly cocktails (16.50 for a martini) but happy to support them.

Granted it has been a year since we have dined here but many times over the past 10 years. Pandemic or not, we were Very surprised to see both service and food were just not good.
2.5 hours to have a dinner for three is just not ok and It was much more expensive than I remember. Good wine list though. They must be focused RSF regulars only. Moving on.

Firenze is a restaurant that proves its quality every time we eat there. Their lasagna is our new fav; really delicious. The wine selection is excellent and the wait staff is experienced and personable. It's always a good time, whether we eat inside or out. They have lots of heaters if we have to keep eating outside in the middle of winter!!!

What a lovely Birthday Lunch that was for our friend, Kathy. The server, Christina, did a spectacular job as she was the only one there and the place became so close to full which doesn't normally happen at lunch. Her Busboy also did an amazing job!! Christina was so personable and efficient and we send her many thanks!!

Enjoyed the outdoor space and the food was very good. I was very surprised however at the prices! They have definitely gone up since I was last there. For my elderly father and myself with one glass of wine each the bill was $150! I find that excessive especially since we were eating fairly basic items off the menu.

Food is outstanding... Wine selection above normal... (they really do try to find some fun wines to enjoy)... During Covid - they have done the best to make the outdoor experience good... A bit pricey - but maybe that is unfair to area and other venue costs. So, bottom line - go enjoy and support this place. It would be a big loss to not keep them going.
p.s. our service was always aware but not intrusive. That was very important in my top rating.
