    We love Florian’s, so I’m going to assume it was an off night. They were out of bread, shrimp, and several other items. The Brussels sprouts were too acidic. The server had to keep apologizing because there were so many menu items that were unavailable.

    The food was incredible as well as the service! I was able to order an outstanding Greek table wine that I haven't had since I was in Greece last September! The Italian bread that was served was actually real Italian bread!!! Hands down One of my favorite restaurants in the area!

    The blueberry ribeye was ordered medium and came out very rare. Another blueberry ribeye was ordered medium well and it came out well done with charred surfaces. Server was outstanding and atmosphere wonderful. It must be noted that they offered to correct it.

    Chicken was so dry I couldn't eat it Brought bread but virtually no pesto to spread for four slices Never brought or asked for if we wants more Understaffed and hard to get anyones attention The Branzino was dry and poorly spiced Ask for a simple cocktail and the waiter said they didn't have the cordial for it even though there is no cordial in it Manager came by and took the chicken off the bill And made the cocktail I wanted without any issue Very disappointing since we love this restaurant

    I really really really wanted to give Floriana’s a better review. The staff was super friendly and the restaurant itself is very nice and romantic. But the food is where they fall short. All the pictures and reviews online were great so we were excited and had high expectations. The pesto and bread was a decent start, the pesto was amazing but the bread was a little tough. For an appetizer, we attempted to order the mussels and they were out which is totally fine so we went with the servers recommendation of the black lobster gnocchi. The gnocchi was soft but ultimately flavorless and the lobster cream sauce also was very light in flavor. The shrimp that comes with the appetizer was the best part. My boyfriend loved his entree, the blueberry ribeye. I ordered the scallop and shrimp risotto. The scallops were delicious and so were the shrimp but there were only 2 of each. The scallops were a good size but I was definitely a little disappointed that for $29 you get only 2 shrimp. The risotto itself was undercooked so after the protein was gone, I didn’t eat much more.

    Only good thing about this restaurant is the balcony seating. Food was beyond bland and way overpriced for how poor it was. Bread was stale and inedibly chewy. Waitress came by maybe twice, didn’t write anything down (which in itself is okay) but got our drink order wrong. Two mains, one beer and one cocktail was $100. Completely overpriced and beyond disappointing food. Go somewhere else for a real meal. Would be fine if you just want a glass of wine while sitting outside but that’s about it.

    We were there on a Monday at lunch so very quiet. We were the only people in the dining room. The food was okay. My pasta was undercooked and the eggplant was too mushy. I ordered wine and it tasted like it had been open for a while - bottles not pumped. My husband did love his cream of asparagus soup! It was not a great as I was expecting. Perhaps dinner experience/food would be better.

    It was my first time and was extremely pleased at the excellent service, ambiance and menu selections. Several unique choices and traditional standards allow for choices of all tastes. The food was quite good, although one of the dishes was a bit undercooked and if not for that, I would have rated it as outstanding. Plan to re-visit in the near further and will recommend to friends.

    Our server Kaitlyn and the manager Dylan made our experience at Floriana wonderful! The Salumi and Formaggio appetizer, Sunday Gravy and Seared Scallops were deliciously paired with excellent wine suggestions from Kaitlyn. The ambience was heightened by the private balcony that Dylan secured for us with short notice. The exemplary service, generous provisions and overall experience will make Floriana a MUST for us when visiting Wilmington! Thank you for your talents!

    First time here - enjoyed our anniversary dinner. Initially disappointed that the rain kept us from being able to sit at one of the outside balcony tables, but the indoor ambience (high ceilings and spread-out tables) enabled us to have a peaceful “private” romantic dinner. Food was tasty and reasonably priced, service was helpful and attentive. Overall very nice evening. Will definitely be back!

    Went for our anniversary dinner. The service was exceptional. They had an anniversary card waiting for us when we walked in a choice of prosecco or dessert on the house. Our waiter was knowledgeable about the menu choices, extremely professional, prompt, but not overbearing. Food was great. Portion sizes were plenty enough to be full but not oversized like many Italian restaurants. No complaints, will be going again!

    My husband & I went to eat here on Father’s Day. Was able to get a balcony table. Service was excellent. Only problem was the bread they served. It was dried out & very hard crust. The waiter brought us another serving, which was better, but,again, became very dry in a few minutes. Could have been that it was due to the warm temperatures outside. Other than that, we would recommend this restaurant for your special occasion, as it is a little pricey.

    Our first time here. We reserved an early time slot for Father’s Day 11:15. We were seated upstairs by the server’s door and fireplace. Service was extremely slow and our food was lukewarm. Did not know toast or biscuit was not included and server failed to mention it so we could have ordered. We ordered drinks, donuts and 4 breakfast entrees. We were able to get our check at 1:15 overall not a good experience.
