Sun-splashed by day and romantically lantern-lit at night, Firenze's flower-bedecked patio, with it's gentle fountain, is like a private courtyard in some romantic Italian villa. Come see what all the buzz is about we are certain that you will enjoy this one of a kind experience in this beautiful San Diego Italian restaurant.

We're happy to support our local go-to restaurant where the food, service and ambience are always excellent.
Great service, delicious and wonderful ambience.
We came here a few months ago for our anniversary and decided to come back for my birthday. Both times were great experiences and I look forward to having the lamb again soon!
Great job during this time. So fun getting to go out to dinner again.
Lovely outdoor patio with space between tables. Friendly service and great foo. The chocolate lava cake was spectacular
My boyfriend and I truly enjoyed our evening at your restaurant.
Such a great restaurant! We were greeted at the door and guided to our table. The service was excellent. I had the butternut squash ravioli and it was the best! Enjoyed wine and it was a perfect evening!
really good food. really good food. really good food.
celebrated a birthday here - was a great place to dine
The service and ambiance are always great. The food is good, not great. The prices are high in my estimation compared to similar restaurants in the area. The parking is ample.
Always the best for Italian dishes and seafood with exceptiona service.
Always great food
We have eaten here many time and the food is epic!
Great Valentines dinner at a reasonable price from a neighborhood restaurant. Lasagna and steak.
To be fair, ambiance was rated low because we were seated next to a 4 year old that kept getting up and running around the outdoor fountain. Not something you'd expect at a $75 per person Valentine's Night dinner! The Valentine's menu options were, sad to say, disappointing. Not a whole lot of traditional Italian options. We may try again when it's the regular menu. Service was not great, our server was polite, but not attentive. We were just a table of two, the other larger parties seemed to be the focus.
This is one of the best Italian restaurants I have ever been to, at least in the US. We started with Caesar salad, entrees of Pasta Rustica and Rigatoni al Forno, finished with what was an outstanding dolce course, Tartufo. Our server, Julie, was well informed and attentive. Although we brought our own wine, the wine list here is excellent, with, as expected, many old world Italian selections, as well as some high quality California labels. There are also nearly 3 dozen by-the-glass selections, all well priced, offering the opportunity to sample more than one variety and/or producer. Highly recommend this lovely restaurant. Looking forward to the next visit.
This was our first time here and enjoyed the meal very much. If the hostess who seated us wasn't so aloof and rude, I would have given service a 5 star rating. The hostess did not give us a warm welcome when we arrived and seated our party; also, as I exited, I waived and said good bye to her and she didn't respond at all, but immediately looked away; however, she said goodbye to those who exited after me. Not sure if it was a racial thing. Our waiter was much more attentive and friendly after we received our food, but at first, we didn't see much of him. Portions are very large and the bread with olive oil and balsamic vinegar was great.
Best hostess ever! Highly recommend
Best Italian restaurant in the San Diego area. Large menu, with numerous great choices. The food is outstanding, and we go there about once a month for several years.
We had a delightful dinner - the ravioli and the salmon special was delicious and were superbly prepared. The service was excellent, both courteous and attentive. This was our first time, but we'll be back.
Every Saturday is a Special time to enjoy a nice evening together. And Firenze did not disappoint us. The staff were attentive but not interruptive, which we appreciate.
Friday night the place was hopping! Consistently delicious food and top line service every time.
This is one of our “Go-To’s” when we want outstanding food, service and ambiance.
This is one of our favorite restaurants normally. We had to wait a half an hour before anyone took care of us and the service was dreadful. The food was not up to par and no one even seem to care.
The servers were overwhelmed and stressed. Very poor management.
At this time, we will not return
It was a great place and the food was good. I thought a little pricy for the basic dishes. I get it for complex dishes but even a plain spaghetti for kids is $30. But all in all a nice place for dinner.
My friends and I had a wonderful time at Firenze. The food was very good, the service excellent and the ambiance was great. We were seated back in a corner of one of the rooms and it was very quiet. Wonderful evening.
Very reliable good food and service
We enjoyed most of the fixed price dinner for New Year's Eve. The starts (soup and calamari) were great. The main course of haddock was very bland. It was a good size portion, but had no seasonings. The cioppino was better. The desserts were very good and the service very good as well. It was nice that we could take our time and enjoy the evening.
Busy New Year’s Eve crowd- great food as usual!
We are regular customers and will continue...especially for special occasions.
I haven't been At Firenze for more than 20 years, but the food is still delicious. Only the tiramisu was much better the last time....
My expectations where exceeded. Service, dinner and a warm atmosphere. We especially enjoyed the Lasagna and the Scampi. Both dishes were great. I also recommended the home made chicken meatball with the Rigatoni/Mushroom entree.
We look forward to returning soon.
Excellent first visit to Firenze. We will definitely come back. Christine was a polite and friendly server. Our selections (muscle appetizer, minestrone soup, Risotto Fantastico, and the baked ziti) were all excellent. Food was served piping hot and portions were large. We could easily have shared a main course, but wanted to sample 2 different dishes. The only “miss” was the Lava cake which did not have a melty center at all. Tasted like a microwaved piece of chocolate cake. Next time we will try the recommended Tiramisu.
Nice wine list and the splits of Champagne were a nice option.
This is one of our go to places. Always a great meal with superb service.
A great spot for delicious Italian food. It is one of the places I think of when I want comfort food.
My friends and I totally enjoyed our Xmas dinner! Everything was fabulous...and we are picky!! Xox
We enjoyed our evening at Firenze. The food, service, and ambiance did not disappoint.
Lots of ambience. Food was served hot and fresh. Our waiter didn’t seem to be 100% into service. We have had many tasty meals over the years there.
Consistently superb for a special evening out or just getting out!
Great food and wonderful service
