Not up to par. Pre-COVID this restaurant was 5-star fantastic. Last night’s dinner was a disappointment. Service was extremely slow, food and presentation was bland. I’ll chalk this up as a result of COVID- but we are now at the end of it …

One day of the best restaurants in North County. Outdoor dining was so pleasant, a feeling of being in Italy.

My go-to. Never a bad meal to be had. The patio is so wonderful in the evenings. Mark makes a mean martini.

We both enjoyed entree salads and I requested a lighter amount of dressing. It was just right and the salmon portions on both salads were very generous.

The restaurant, in Rancho Santa Fe, did not live up to its own ambience. It had a large courtyard outside with heaters, a good turnout for a Sunday evening. The staff tried to make everyone happy. But, the food was just average, though highly priced.

Every time we return, I wonder why we don't go there more often. The bar is fun, staff is friendly, helpful, knowledgeable, and willing to offer helpful suggestions. Above all, the Italian cuisine is superb. The portions are large enough to share, or to have some left to take home, and the wine list is extensive, varied, and of all price ranges.

We have eaten here several zillion times and each time the food is delicious and we always go back. The staff is most gracious and have been there for a long time, so you get to know the servers who are really amazing people in their own right.
Recommend this restaurant to anyone who loves excellent Italian food!

The food was absolutely delicious. I had the Portabella mushroom raviolis with the Gorgonzola cream sauce. The raviolis were cooked perfect.
My husband chicken piccata absolutely delicious as well.
And you is extensive. So many great choices. We sat outside on the patio which was lovely. They have an expensive wine list. Also a full bar.
Definitely worth a try for a great meal

I had raved about the food at Firenze. Unfortunately it was disappointing. I remembered the lasagna, risotto and salads. The best part was the lasagna, still as delicious as ever. Unfortunately everything else was mediocre. The risotto was not smooth and it needed to be cooked probably another 5+ minutes. The seabass, fish special was over cooked, dry and quite disappointing for the cost and the salad overdressed. We also ordered dessert- cheesecake and cannoli, both were not at its best either. Our server was friendly and took care of us and the ambiance was good.

However after visiting the restaurant this most recent time, I don’t think I would be returning anytime soon.
