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.

We were greeted by Judith who was very friendly. Gave us a great table with a view of the battleship.

Bella was our server and she did a fabulous job friendly and outgoing.

The food was fabulous I have the eggs Benedict with prosciutto delicious. We also had the ricotta donuts that were amazing.

My first time their brunch was awesome and will go back for lunch and dinner.

Great job done by the restaurant and there staff

Not one to complain, but when they checked on us we had to speak up. The scallop and shrimp was risotto was good until biting into a very cold center scallop, and then when brought back it was still cold. The bread brought to the table was also not warm. There was plenty of staff, but we didn’t feel taken care of. Great environment, food and service underwhelming.

Dinner was great! Fresh sumner selections were delicious. Wine selections were perfect and waiter was very confident and knowledgeable about food and wine details. We appreciated the suggestions!

The red and black decorum was hard on the eyes. Looked different on the outside vs what we saw on inside. We expected it to look like an Italian villa.

We will ce back and look fwd to sitting on balcony next time.

Fourth visit. Food always superb. Excellent wine list. Had the same waiter for 3 of those visits - he remembered us after 1st visit. After 2nd visit he remembered our previous wine order. What else can I say? This is NOT a red sauce joint. It us FINE ITALIAN DINING. So happy they are in Wilmington!
