    We visited to celebrate a birthday. The Steak was cooked perfectly ! We sat outside on the balcony at night there was candle light but a dim overhead light would’ve been preferred. The waitress was very attentive and suggested great wines! Overall great experience !

    We arrived early, were greeted warmly, and were seated right away. Our server was friendly and helpful, as were all of the staff. The food was delicious! I had mentioned we were there for my wife's birthday, and they brought us desert with a lit candle in it, but there was no huge fuss made, much to our relief! We loved it and will definitely return.

    We were disappointed in our dining experience this time . There appeared to not be enough help and the food was fair at best . The scallop risotto was undercooked as was the burata ravioli . We had to flag down our server every time for a drink and finally the bill. Disappointing experience

    The food and service were good however their are better Italian places for the price. The over all serving size was acceptable however the protein in each serving was severely lacking I ordered the Sunday gravy, which comes with sausage and pork belly. I had 2 bites of each. My partner ordered the lamb gnocchi and and had 3 bite size pieces of lamb.

    It was my wife's birthday so we were looking for something upscale. Arrived 15 minutes early for our Friday evening booking but it was no problem and we were shown to the table immediately. Service was friendly and efficient. We were brought bread and pesto with our drinks and it was delicious. Appetizers and entrees both came in good time. Food was excellent - very tasty, and good sized portions (not always the case in fine dining). There was a lot of variety on the menu. It's an expensive restaurant but we knew that before we booked. With an appetizer, entree and a couple of drinks it would be around $60-70 per person plus tips. I think that's fair value for the quality and quantity of food we had, and its a great location. We were offered a balcony, but my wife doesn't like heights so we declined. One thing that was a little curious was that there were several servers and they seemed to work all the tables, so we had one server take our drinks and appetizers order, and another deliver the appetizers and take our entree order, and then another bought the check when we were ready for it. It wasn't a problem - just a little different to what I normally encounter. All in all we had a good night.

    The service was absolutely amazing. The menu is limited. I had the butter lettuce salad which was the best part. I had the salmon which was supposed to come with Farro. It came with some type of highly salted mush. I’m not sure what. I detected spinach I think. The salmon was cooked to my request but was tasteless. One of my guests had the duck gnocchi which had pieces of duck skin moreso than duck meat. We also had mussels which are typically salty but the broth was over salty. Another of us had the tortelloni mignon. He had it was very good. The wine choices were great. Prices of food were high but understandable in the current economic world we are all in.

    First and last time at Floriana’s. Wine was bitter/ sour old, not drinkable. After we complained, waitress opened a new bottle it was delicious! Appetizers and salad were great! Loved the egg on the Caesar salad! Main course inedible for 2 out of 4 of us. Lamb gnocchi was bitter, left a bitter, bad taste in our mouths, one bite was more than enough.worst thing I’ve ever tasted. Scallop and shrimp risotto was also inedible, the risotto was crunchy and bland and the shrimp and scallops tasted exactly the same, no taste difference.

    Waitress said they just changed to their fall/winter menue. We should have left then because the cheff certainly wasn't ready. Calamarie was way overcooked - we grew up on good clamarie - always tender not rubbery. Ordered scallop & shrimp rosoto - Rosoto was under cooked and over salted. This dish had two scallops and three very small shrimp for $30. Odered Salmon - 6oz. cooked ok, not great, very bland, served on a bed of humus and whole chick peas and also over salted. Very good waitress, nice atmosphere, poor food prep, way overpriced for the quality of what we were served. Most good reviews seem to have ordered Pasta but not likly to try Floriana again.

    we are new to the Wilmington area. Floriana was recommended. our on line request was for a balcony table "if warm enough". that is what we received. from the moment we walked in we had wonderful polite, informative and friendly service. the food? incredibly delicious! the wine list is extensive and covers a wide range of cost. something for everyone. one suggestion: someone in your party needs to order the "gravy" dish. i can't explain it, but it is outstanding.

    I was very impressed with the food, service, and especially prices. We are young and broke, we wanted a nice meal to celebrate something very special to us. Honestly, we were more than impressed. We were given the balcony seating, which was very private! The food was so yummy and the left overs were packaged up. Thank you to all the staff! I wish we would have written down your names to give you a special shout-out :)

    Poor communication of wait time for outdoor balcony table - told it would be 10-15 minutes; turned out to be 45. Food was disappointing. The cucumber soup was over salted and barely eatable. Pasta entree unremarkable. Pasta overcooked bolognese meat sauce bland.

    The sever was excellent. My food arrived cold. Had to be sent back. I had the Sunday Gravy. The menu said it came with “Pork Belly, short rib ,sausage,tomato sauce , ricotta and paccheri. The problem was. The dish was very short of its protein. Small bits of sausage. Shredded beef. I expected to see sizable pieces of meat. The sauce and Paccheri were good. But the tiny pieces of meat kind of ruined the dish. Especially for $26.00. My friend had the BRANZINO and loved
