We were celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary and we were greeted with a sweet card and sat on the balcony. The food did not disappoint either. The watermelon salad, charcuterie, and wild mushroom ravioli was so yummy. Our waiter was knowledgeable and was attentive. We will be back when we return to Wilmington again.

My husband and I had a fantastic Saturday brunch at Floriana out on one of the sweet private balconies. It was a perfect day to eat outside. The balcony setting was fun, overlooking the Cape Fear river, boardwalk and the USS NC Battleship. I ordered the shrimp & polenta and my husband had the eggs in purgatory. We had tiramisu for dessert. All were delicious! Maddy was our server. She was knowledgeable, attentive and quite pleasant. Highly recommend this fantastic restaurant!

My boyfriend and I were visiting Wilmington and the menu here looked amazing so we made a reservation. We were able to sit on one of their private balconies.

We shared a cesar salad, then shared both the lasagna and the burrata ravioli. One word. Memorable. We woke up saying, I wonder when they open… we could go for more lasagna. Both meals were superb, but that lasagna. Drool worthy.

Great place for a romantic dinner. They have a few Juliet balconies outside for private seating with water views although weather has to cooperate for that. The menu has great pasta and meat options along with lots of wonderful Italian wines to compliment your meal. They also have a full bar for cocktails. Service was excellent.

My husband and I, along with another couple had dinner last night and it was amazing. The food was delicious and creative but our waitperson, Kaitlyn was AMAZING. This woman remembered us from our visit in May and even remembered the wine we had. Her personality, efficiency, and attention to detail are a winning combination. In fact, I'll be calling ahead to make sure we have her as our server the next time we plan to have dinner at Floriana. Earlier in life, I ran a customer service department. I wish I had 100 "Kaitlyns". Thanks for making DeAnn's birthday so special!

Service was fantastic. I was able to sit in one of their balcony tables. Really nice experience. We tried mussels, which were delicious. Their bread with pesto sauce was terrific. Wine selections good. We tried their Branzini and scallops and shrimp risotto. Both very delicious! Will definitely be back!!

As always when we dine here (with a reservation) we were seated promptly and the service was impeccable. We brought another couple for their first experience here and, like us, they'll be back again and agin. Our food was outstanding and getting to select half-price wines from their cellar was just icing on the cake. We were a bit disappointed that the espresso machine was broken.

We are in town for a film, and Floriana has instantly become our favorite restaurant! Beautiful atmosphere, charming, excellent service - and the food was spectacular. The type of place you’ll want to return to again and again (which we will). The chilled melon soup was perfect for the weather, and my husband and I split a perfect filet and the scallops. Exquisite!

Fun, pleasant, cool vibes and VERY good food. Love the balcony tables, and even the inside has a great, old-time/city vibe. downstairs seating and bar area is great too. But, best of all was the food - it really is spot on (not always easy to find great Italian in ILM - but, they do a wonderful job). Yes, the staffing shortage was noticeable (not horrible, but you could tell). 100% recommend.
