    Way over priced for what you get. The beans we had were so old. So tough…couldn’t even chew through it. I was expecting more given the good ratings. Sounds like it used to be good…not this time.

    We’ve been to Firenze a few times over the years. Overall the food was tasty but this time there were definitely some misses. Our friendly server was trying hard but failed to communicate some of the specials clearly…he spoke very fast and the restaurant was quite noisy. Our menus were piled up and sat at our cramped table for a long time without being removed. We ordered 2 specials and both failed to hit the mark. The shrimp dish lacked the punch that was promised and turned out to be only so-so and not worth the price. The Osso Buco was an utter fail. Tough, membraney and definitely not cooked long enough. The meat should fall off the bone and nearly melt in your mouth; this was the opposite and could barely be cut with a knife. Most certainly not worth $38! The portion was also the smallest Osso Buco I’d ever seen. Pastas were reliably tasty. Sadly we won’t be coming back unless we hear that things have improved.

    It was fine for a mall restaurant. Arrived with reservation, restaurant half empty but we still had to wait a few mins. We ordered the carbonara, clams linguine, pesto ravioli and cheese pizza. No one loved their entree but they were all OK/edible. The glass of Prosecco I ordered was flat; I wasn’t motivated to exchange it. Quaint restaurant, attempting to look like an authentic Italian cafe, but struck us as a bit cliche and outdated. Nice enough staff. Overall, average experience but probably won’t return anytime soon. (Frankly, surprised by the high rating.)

    Fabulous authentic Italian restaurant! This was our first time dining at Firenze and we were not disappointed. We sat outdoors on the patio with the beautiful flowers and had a great meal and a wonderful bottle of wine. The owner greeted us with his gregarious, welcoming personality and the servers were friendly, accommodating and very helpful with the wine list and menu. The food was absolutely delicious and the wine list is impressive. We will definitely be returning!

    Overall. Not enough staff to handle a Tuesday night crowd. They took my wine order and 20 minutes the other drink was delivered . Did not come to check on our meal which was very good. Cesar salad was a bit soggy. Did not ask for coffee or dessert. Did not say good bye or thank you.

    Service and ambience was great. But past the grill taste, my Quail had no flavor at all, no salt, no pepper, just bland. This bird is a bit of a chore to eat, which would normally be no problem if the flavor made it worthwhile. My coworker loved her veal, so that's good. Too bad I can't say the same about my meal. The oversized carrots, though obnoxiously large, were seasoned well, but smaller (or baby carrots) would have been a better choice (the giant veggies made the main course actually look even tinier). Those were horse carrots :), feed them to horses.

    Good value for the $$. Small and quaint with a generally authentic Italian trattoria feel. Menu has all the genuine items you would expect, plus a couple unique surprises in the seafood category. Everything was prepared well, with extra props for the pastas and desserts. Wine list was good, but could have used a few more "By the Glass" selections. Service was friendly, if not a little rushed on the busy night we dined. End of the day, Firenze is a nice little family owned option for this part of Bellevue which can be somewhat dominated by more chain type places.

    I had a 4pm reservation for happy hour after checking their web site. The door was locked when we arrived at 4. When someone finally arrived at 4:15, we were told that they are not offering happy hour. We stayed and ordered from the much smaller appetizer menu and over-priced wine. The food was good and service was cheerful and prompt. We were happy when we left.

    We had reservations for after work on a hard, hard day (performance reviews, a presentation. For 8:15. Where were there 8:10. They were closed. I called them they said too bad so sad not enough people were there at 7 so they closed. Maybe they could have called us so we wouldn't have driven over? Other restaurants do. So even though I have given glowing recommendations in the past, no more. Will never go again. I urge you all to avoid as well. My guess they are going out of business and no longer care.

    We booked a reservation through OpenTable for 4 people. When we arrived at the restaurant it looked very full and we had to wait at least 7 minutes before someone came to help us at the host desk. They informed us the restaurant was full. I gave them our reservation, which they confirmed in their system, and said sorry, we have your reservation but we wont have room for you for a few hours.

Called them, they said, too bad so sad, their were not enough people there so they closed at 7, our reservations (still listed as pending) were for 8:15. We will not return. We had been going with friends, we have told them as well. They could have called us before we drove over there.
