This was our second visit to Letitia's Fiore- this time to celebrate an adult and child birthday-
just as delicious as the first time- pizza with egg plant delicious, the gnocchi was nice and light (and not too creamy)
good children's menu, I was surprised
we look forward to visiting in the warm weather so we can try the patio
server was friendly and knowledgeable with great recommendations on food and drink. atmosphere was nice with quieter noise. Went with family members and had a great time. looking forward to returning again soon.
Easily the best Italian food I've ever had! They import all of their ingredients, which are remarkably fresh and delicious, and the food is amazing. The restaurant is very nice in its own right and the service is very good as well. Do yourself a favor and try it!
The food at Letezia's was bland and poorly prepared. The bread before dinner was like stale sandwich bread. The pizza was soggy and the mushroom started lacked flavor. Very disappointing.
Pizza was delicious, reminded me of being in Italy. We went with a group of 7 with a few kids, the staff was very nice and the pizza is some of the best around. I will be going back!
We loved our food at Leltizia's Fiore
Service was excellent
Added to that, my husband left his hat and was able to retrieve it a few days later
The service was exquisite. Our server was very accomodating and friendly. The food was very tasty and portion sizes were just right. The presentation of the polenta was also a pleasant surprise for my group. This little restaurant is definately on my list of recommendations for others.
For years, I've wanted to try Letizia's and finally a friend and I went for dinner. Except for a small glitch, everything was great. I loved my salad (a yummy variation on a traditional arugula salad) so much that I would go back just for that. We shared the polenta special -- huge portion, creamy polenta, meat sauce that you could add yourself -- and really liked it. We tried the calamari appetizer too. It's listed as being in a white wine sauce but it came in a spicy red sauce instead, which was not to our tastes, so the server kindly took it back given that it wasn't what was listed on the menu. We then split the salmon and it was really good, but nothing unusual. There were enough dishes on the menu that sounded great that I will go back for sure.
I really enjoyed my salmon ravioli! My husband had a bad experience with the risotto, it was not creamy and kind of just fell apart like overdone rice with little seasoning. He asked for salt even for his dish. That is totally not like him. He also wasn't please with the octopus that came out more like a salad than an octopus app plate. We both enjoyed the wine, and my caramel gelato as well as my dish.
I was hoping that this would be a real find. When we arrived the place was nearly empty. The hostess brought the next group of several adults and a somewhat noisy child next to our table instead of putting them some distance away. As it turned out the adults were the noisy ones. The restaurant was very dark. I guess if you are with people your really don't want to see, this is a good thing. If on the other hand they don't want you to see the food then that is something else. The place was decorated with a lot of empty flower pots...for me winter is grim enough with out having to be reminded of it with this symbolism. The salad was good, but perhaps I choose the entrée. I might give it another chance but I would prefer more light and a more cheerful ambiance.
Letizia's Fiore is great everytime we go. They are so friendly and the food is outstanding. Great place!
We come here A LOT and this time we brought friends with us who had never been-- they both LOVED it , too. Found is outstanding and the family (son and mom) are so nice. I can even buy my favorite pasta to go now .
love finding the good places off the beaten path. Great neighborhood gem.
Always a great staff with excellent menu and wine suggestions. There is also a market on site, so you can buy your own wine for dinner, if you prefer.
We were so pleasantly surprised at the creative decor, the general ambiance, and the quality of the food. Had no expectations, really, and were just looking for something in the neighborhood. We basically built dinner for three going sort of tapas-style, ordering four appetizers. Now I want to go back and try a pasta dish.
Drinks and calamari were great!!! Pizza not so much. Had the salami pizza and OH BOY that salami. Miserable..... Sausage pizza was MEH... My wife loved the salmon ravioli. My pasta venison bolognese was ok, very "TOMATOEE". Need a few more lights in the place. Had a group of possible" just got a night away from my husband and kids" girls, sitting right behind us and were about as obnoxious as I've ever heard a group. Wish someone from the restaurant would've addressed that. So no need to go back to the restaurant instead I'll go to her bakery which is phenomenal!!!!
Interesting menu. well prepared and presented. great staff.
We don't dine out that often because, well, I'm a pretty darn cook myself.
When we do go out though I am able to duplicate the recipe at home and we add it to our list of choices.
Not Letizia's though. While giving my meal the once over while eating I was thoroughly convinced it would take me way too many tries to duplicate this and that I was able to figure out why.
Fresh ingredients! I mean super fresh! Heck, they even make their own pasta.
Our groups' plates covered everything from wild boar pasta in a pancetta sauce to pizza and everything I was given the right to try was incredible.
If you know good food and the trouble it takes to produce it, give this place a try.
Service was great, the owners gracious, and our tummies were full.
Great local Italian spot. Some of the best pasta and pizzas in the city.
