We eat at Florentino’s about 4 times per year. Food is always good, and menu selections and specials are varied and provide good choices.

The food was delicious. The ambiance was quaint and comfortable. A bit pricey even with a deal from Living Social but overall a lovely restaurant. The service was good too, I especially liked the dessert presentation; the waitress brought several options on a plate for us to choose from she was really nice and pleasant. I would recommend this restaurant 100%!!

An intimate atmosphere that offers deliciously prepared food. It’s a bit noisy because of the small space, but it did not detract from a lovely meal.

Restaurant is very small and crammed. We were sitting next to a couple that was basically sitting with us at our table.
Food was incredibly bland. I ordered the Pasta ala Bolognese...menu said it was made with garlic. No garlic in my dish. Incredibly dissapointed.
Husband ordered Filet and Funghi. Meat was tough and lacked flavor. Dish just tasted like a bowl of mushrooms. No savory flavor in the cream sauce.
Screaming child in the restaurant made for an interesting meal of not being able to hear anything.

Love that it is a BYOB. Service wonderful.
Only issue is a place for coats in winter and noise level! But small, intimate atmosphere would lend itself to being noisy!

Warm and Friendly greeting as the four of us entered on a cold, damp evening. Two split the very good house salad and two split another salad. Three had pasta with meat sauce (excellent) and one had his favorite-spinach ravioli. This us BYOB, but we were eating fairly late and didn't take wine this time. We enjoyed the experience, especially the fine Italian food, pasta always just right. It's a pleasure to handle the nicely-presented bill and add 20+% here.
We shall be back.
Newtown is a lovely Bucks County spot, parking never a problem.

This was our second time at Florentino’s and once again everything was amazing. It’s a smaller space so when it is full the noise level does increase, but the food is fantastic, especially the whole wheat garlic bread and Francisco’s lasagna, and the staff all works together to make sure that you never want for anything during your meal.

I have been to Florentino's many times. It is always delicious and the food is freshly prepared. I especially love their salads which are interesting and large enough to share. My go to dish is their eggplant parmesan. It is slow roasted, and rich tasting while being (I believe) a healthy choice. I have always been happy with whatever I ordered at Florentino's and would definitely recommend giving it a try.

I had made a reservation for my family a few weeks prior to Christmas Eve and we called to let them know we were coming five minutes prior to our reservation time as we were going to be 10 minutes late. When we arrived there clearly was not a table available for us as all of the tables for four were filled. The only space available in the restaurant was right near the front door where two tables had to be put together and we could not sit on the four sides as the next table was too close. The noise level was high and it was difficult to hear my husband on the other side.
The food was good but overall experience disappointing. Our children are home for just a couple weeks of the year and we were so looking forward to a nice meal out together.
