Convenient in jw marriott. Nice space. Very friendly staff. Food was fine. We had caesar salads which were fresh. Shared gnocci with short rib dish which was very good. Portions are small though and prices high for what they give you.

Food server was inattentive and forget about our order twice. Shockingly bad experience. Food was bland.
I now see why we got in at the last minute on a Saturday night.

Overall a good experience, I would say for the price point and atmosphere the waitstaff could have been a little more experienced, things seems a bit disorganized and would be a bit intrusive by serving under people’s arms. But they were very friendly which we appreciated. Food was great but the hummus had a bit too much oil poured on top. Would have been great had that not been added.

The side of broccolini was amazing and the calamari starter was my favorite. I’d recommend the Fritto Misto(calamari) antipasti and the Dragon’s Breath cocktail.

Their breakfast food is really good! I would recommend the waffles with berries compost. I tried their special which was a lobster pasta and it was delicious! Great ambiance for a date night or intimate gathering

went for lunch with a prospect. Food was awful, prices were obnoxious. Not the first time. Never been that great (but for location). Thought pandemic might have 'scared them straight'. Appaently not.

Heard breakfast is better

A very attractive decor. Well laid out for covid restrictions. Service was prompt and attentive. Food selection was limited due to covid, but represented a good selection. Readily accessible connected to the J W Marriott. Overall an excellent experience.

Menu was not as advertised on open table. Food was over salted. Cocktail menu was "out" because yesterday was busy....

Not worth the expense. A million italian restaurants in Chicago that are better.

I used to eat here a lot and I understand that the pandemic has hit everyone pretty hard. However, it took over 15 minutes for our server to come over and ask if we were ready to order...

I appreciate their being open and I will try them again based on so many good past experiences but I hosted two people for lunch and they were more than underwhelmed...

Staff was rude and condescending. I asked to switch tables and was met with the condescending attitude of the staff telling me I should be happy with the table that was given to me and that I am beginning to sound ungrateful. I thought this manner of speaking to me was completely unnecessary and wrong. It seemed everything was a problem--by the end I couldn't wait to get out of there. Totally unpleasant and the staff did an excellent job at making my girlfriend and me feel unwelcome and uncomfortable.

We were looking for someplace to go on a Sunday early evening downtown. Very few venues were open at the time. We were happy to find Florentine's in the Marriott Hotel on Adams. There were very few people there. We enjoyed the salmon and ice cream. The service was spot on.

Very inattentive waiter. At the heart of the lunch rush—perhaps they were understaffed? Another staff member resolved the issue quickly, but then we also had issues getting our check in a timely manner. Food was great, as usual, though.
