This is a small, very nice restaurant in the heart of Newtown, PA. The food is excellent, ambiance is simple, and the wait staff are very attentive. This eatery is definitely a keeper!

Haven’t been to Florentinos in over a year, thanks covid, but it’s still excellent! Quiet Sunday dinner and our servers were very attentive yet not overly. Had the arugula salad, garlic wheat bread, chicken Gorgonzola (YUM) and lasagna. Everything was delicious and served piping hot. My favorite salad anywhere and I’ll always get the garlic bread as they don’t go overboard with the garlic, it’s a nice amount. Dessert - the flourless chocolate torte was to die for. I would love to make this at least a monthly thing!

Great meal! While I was skeptical of using whole wheat for garlic bread, my first bite convinced me that I was wrong. I could have eaten the whole loaf by myself. My husband was so enamored of the scallops in lobster cream sauce that I was a little jealous. My chicken marsala was also outstanding, and the portion was large enough for me to take home enough for another meal. The coconut cream cake was also excellent. It reminded me of tres leches, incredibly moist and with lots of coconut. The waiter was friendly and very accommodating. In short, there was really nothing we didn't like about this meal.

From the greeting to the ambience and food it was quite delightful. Unfortunately A few minutes after being seated and even before there was an open bottle or bread on the table we were being rushed to place our appetizer and orders as we were instructed we had to leave at a certain time as apparently there was another reservation shortly following. We had a reservation of four and one in our party ran 15 minutes late. It was really the only blemish that tainted the evening. It made the table of 4 very self-conscious as we rushed to eat our dinner. Certainly never the right way to make guests welcome. In the middle of dinner one of our invitees had to ask how much time we had left before finding out there was no one else coming. I believe the experience could’ve been so much more pleasant if that information was provided prior to us trying to scarf down our meal.

We like the fact that it’s easier to get a reservation here than other places. We love the intimacy and the service is always good. But we go for the great food. Of the four at our table no one had a complaint; more like compliments. The Mediterranean salad was fabulous.

My wife had sea bass which had a little too much vinegar. I had filet mignon which was great. Brought our favorite bottle of wine and had a special anniversary dinner date. The triple chocolate mousse cake was fabulous. We enjoy Florentinos and will go again!

Our main dishes were excellent even though it took a while to be served. The pistachio gelato wasn't very good. It tasted like freezer. We had it in the past and it was excellent. We would still return.

The appetizer portions were very small and overpriced. Main courses - pasta was over cooked and served with too much sauce.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to this quaint little byob gem in Newtown. Our server was pleasant and helpful and our every need was addressed with courtesy (and I know there was a smile behind the mask). The food was delicious. A little on the pricey side for Italian food but it was worth the price. We'll be back.

Wonderful hidden gem! A small restaurant that doesn't feel crowded. The menu was diverse and the food was great. I recommend the lasagne- the best I've ever eaten. My son said it was the best meal he had ever eaten in a restaurant. The waitress was personable and the service was great.

You can't go wrong. All the Italian classics are outstanding. Lasagna is ridiculously good, pasta bolognese is incredible, Bob's plate is off the hook, eggplant parm is out of this world. My only wish is for a bigger variety of appetizers - how about some clams casino, seared scallops or mussels in red or white sauce? A shrimp scampi or shrimp fettuccine would be an awesome addition to the menu!!

Very nice local restaurant. Pleasant and helpful staff. I'd lean towards chicken, veal and pasta dishes and skip the seafood (swordfish). When it gets colder sit near the door at your own risk. Chairs are super hard.

Calamari app was not good at all. I had clams and linguini, wife had Tilapia they were ok. I liked mine more than she liked hers. We ate outside with perfect weather. That was cool. If we weren’t outside, not good.
