    The lasagna was a big hit. The ravioli mignon was very good. The black gnocchi with shrimp was fair, it lacked a lot of flavor but the shrimp was good. The bronzino fillet was a generous portion but would have liked a sauce or more spices, a bit blan and not served hot. T try ve classic sangria was great. Chocolate mouse was very good as was the express bean ice cream, excellent. First time will try again and may concentrate on pastas.

    I took my mom and her boyfriend to Floriana's for her 80th birthday celebration. We had the most wonderful time. They greeted her with Happy Birthday, and they lay a Happy Birthday card at her place setting. The food was AMAZING! The wine list was great, so enjoyed a restaurant with Nero d'Avola on the wine list, especially an Italian restaurant. The staff was lovely, and the prices were very fair. I would definitely go back again. Sitting inside is a little noisy, but not break the bank noisy. We still were able to hear each other and had a lovely experience.

    When I made our reservation for our anniversary, I added “anniversary” in the notes. They greeted us with “happy anniversary” and seated us on the balcony. Really nice!! All our servers greeted us and were on their game! We never had an empty water glass and all our questions about wine as well as dinner items were answered. He knew it all. The food was delicious as was the wine. Good wine options and many items to choose from for dinner. Appetizers, salads and main course. And yes dessert was delicious too. Manager stopped by too to make sure everything was good. The whole restaurant, upstairs, downstairs, balcony was nicely and simply decorated, inviting, and clean. We definitely would like to go back when we’re in town visiting again.

    Went to Floriana for our 20th wedding anniversary and grabbed an outside balcony table with a view of the river and setting sun. The hostess was warm and friendly and led us upstairs to our table. The wait staff were all friendly and engaging and took great care of our service. The food was outstanding from the fresh pesto and bread to the calamari to the blueberry ribeye steak and the pasta. Excellent wine selection as well. So delicious and will definitely go back to try some more of their incredibly fresh servings.

    Floriana has all the signs of a restaurant that's in financial trouble and will be out of business soon. Out of lots of items on a menu that's already limited. How does an Italian restaurant run out of burata? Limp, shriveled salad greens that should have been tossed out days ago. Short-staffed. Good things: beautiful website and the arancini. Everything else: pretty bad. I look forward to visiting the next restaurant that opens in this space.

    Came to celebrate my first wedding anniversary with my wife. Everything was amazing the only complaint that I would have if any was the fact that the waiter assumed we were trying to be on the cheaper side when recommending items to eat and drink.

    First time dining at Floriana's. Overall the food had great flavor, although they were out of several key ingredients for the beet salad which was unfortunate and resulted in a dish that was unremarkable. The black gnocchi was outstanding, although the servers need to warn the patron that the dish has a swipe of squid ink which will stain clothing if unaware of it's presence. I was very lucky as by the time I realized I had it up and down my arm and wrist, but didn't get it on my clothing. The pasta was very good, but could have been a little less al dente. Service was very good, with server checking with us frequently. Cost for four entrees plus appetizer/salads was a bit on the high side in my opinion. Will visit again though.

    The food was average. We expected better calamari at an Italian restaurant and the mussels barely had any broth and therefore the ones on top were not warm. The blueberry steak consisted of a lot of fat and overall the food did not taste made to order, but more pre-packaged. Granted the food wasn’t terrible but it was disappointing.

    Sunday 8/21/22 - I heard several times before we where seated that they where short staffed so I hope that was part of the problem. Our waitress was having a bad night, her demeanor showed frustration. The Caesar Salad had more garlic in it than I have ever had. The steak was poor in flavor and a lot of fat for the price. I have heard great things from others about the restaurant, tonight was not one of them

    Today was our 16th Anniversary and we chose Floriana. To say we were satisfied would be an understatement. From the hostess Ella to the Director of Operations, to the ambiance to the food quality and presentation…it was miraculous! Our food was prepared with fresh ingredients and was brilliantly presented. The flavors were simple and elegant and exactly what we were hoping for. The wine was superb and the service was nothing but perfect. We WILL be back again and again. Thank you for such a memorable evening! The Maggios!!!!

    Mostly happy with the experience. Meals were all very good to great and service, while at times rushed and short, was attentive and timely. Disappointed to be on the path to the kitchen with so many open tables but overall we had a very pleasant dinner. Also, thank you for the complimentary birthday desserts.

    My wife and I have been here in Wilmington on a business trip and saw the private balconies while taking a walk. We decided to have a “date night” at Floriana and were fortunate to be seated in a balcony, as requested. The weather was unseasonably cool and the riverfront provided a lovely view. The bright red decor upon entering made a bold yet elegant first impression that the attentive service and beautifully prepared meal had no trouble living up to. Our delicious dinner culminated with a shared espresso chocolate mousse that was equally delicious. We thoroughly enjoyed dining experience at Floriana and would recommend to everyone.

    Still our favorite restaurant in Wilmington. The calamari so fresh and not over coated with breadcrumbs was tender and perfectly cooked. And the burrata stuffed ravioli in a pesto shiitake mushroom sauce to die for. My husband thoroughly enjoyed the branding too. A perfect evening only made better by our server Blake!

    It was our first visit. We had a reservation but decided to wait for a balcony seat in hopes of enjoying the sunset over dinner. The table was on the end and it was a really tight space. There was some construction going on below so the view ended up being just okay from one angle and a little better from another. The server was excellent! The calamari was delicious as were the scallops; however, the lobster in the lobster gnocchi was extremely tough and chewy. They did remake it and it did taste better. By the time I received the new order it was too dark outside to see it and we were ready to leave (2 hour drive leaving around 9pm) The waiter boxed my meal for me. When I got home I realized there was very little lobster in the container (I only ate 3 small pieces with my gnocchi prior to leaving). Overall, we did enjoy the evening for the most part…we were celebrating our birthdays.

    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 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.
