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.
Traditional homemade Italian dessert. Espresso soaked ladyfinger cookies, liqueurs, sweet marscarpone cheese, and cream
layered with ricotta cheese, beef, chicken, sausage, fresh roma tomato, mushroom, parmesan and placed upon marinara sauce & topped with creamy bechamel sauce
sliced filet mignon and shrimp sautéed in aged balsamic sauce with onions and prosciutto, served over risotto
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 …
We highly recommend Firenze for it's delicious food and excellent servers.
One day of the best restaurants in North County. Outdoor dining was so pleasant, a feeling of being in Italy.
Really great dinner. We have been coming here for over 20 years and it never disappoints.
Great food & setting!
A little slow but service was great and we loved the ambience. The good was soooo good!
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.
Great food, great service. we are definitely coming back.
Great atmosphere, great food, great service. Lovely experience!
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.
The food, service and atmosphere was perfect! Our server was top notch. She went above and beyond to meet our needs.!
Nice to find an Italian restaurant with as many distinct dinner choices on their menu. Waiter was very helpful and the food was very good. I will return in the future.
Excellent Food, Service and Ambiance. Would highly recommend for a great dinner.
We love this restaurant. The good is always excellent and the staff is always wonderful
Always love dining at Firenze. The food never disappoints and eating out on the patio is always lovely. I also like eating at the bar. Try the Linguine Vongole with red sauce - it's the best!
Lovely outdoor setting by fountain provided ambience and a relaxing evening. Service was outstanding as was the wine and pasta experience!
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.
LOVE LOVE LOVE dining with my dear friend Ruth (26yr Firenze patron) & she really enjoyed seeing Josepi!
Thank You for a delightful Courtyard experience xo xo (ps take-home Angel Pasta was yum-luscious)
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!
I really enjoy Firenze Trattoria. Nice outside area and very friendly staff. The fountain adds a lot to the ambiance. Good wine list!
great it was my husbands birthday, they brought him a wonderful Tiramisu on the house with one lit candle, very nice and thoughtful
Great as always! This is one of our favorite places!
Great local gem.
Jeanette was amazing as usual, always so friendly and professional, always our favorite! Celebrating our friends birthday and everything was just perfect. The halibut was so good and Jeff was very welcoming. Everyone made us feel so special and we all had a wonderful evening! Can’t wait until our next visit !!
Had the most wonderful Halibut!!!
Husband had a chicken & shrimp dish, shrimp was great and the chicken was fare at best.
Wish the Caesar salad came with fresh anchovies.
Food wine and service were all excellent. Very reasonably priced for the quality.
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
The food used to be fabulous. The Rigatoni didn't meet our level of expectation.
Patio area is really nice (beautiful fountain) with tables well spaced.
We love going to Firenze. The food is always excellent and the service is outstanding. They have a great menu within the extensive variety have the appetizers, entrees and desserts. Great restaurant for special occasions
Excellent food and service. Extensive menu. Very dog friendly. One of our favorite restaurants in north county.
Gathered with friends we had not seen fir several years. Everything about our experience was outstanding.
Absolutely lovely place to go and relax on their beautiful patio for a delicious lunch with plenty of space between the tables. Service was excellent!
We had dined with our friends several months ago & did not have a good experience.
However, we dined Saturday evening 5/1 & it was excellent !! Service & food were both awesome!!!
Excellent food, very good service and nice ambiance! Definitely very recommendable. We will visit soon again.
Had 2 fish entrees...swordfish & seabass. Both were better than any Seafood type restaurant we've ever been to. Kudos to Firenze's!!
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.
A nice evening with friends. The pasta rustica and shrimp with artichokes were lovely. We always enjoy the patio and it was great to be able to enjoy time outside on a warm San Diego evening.
Always a local favorite. Ample portions! the patio is nicely spaced and the service was terrific.
