    We had resos and we’re seated very quickly and our waiter was amazing. He recommended the portobello mushroom appy that isn’t on the menu that I had heard rave reviews of. It did not disappoint!! If they made it into an entree with some pasta, I would eat eat all the time! I also got the chicken in white wine lemon sauce, but I was already full from the appy. The chicken entree was ok, just wish it had more something (? Seasoning). Potatoes were dry and some not cooked. Wine was perfect … my new fave Pinot noir.

    This is the second time we have visited Villa Firenze. The food was excellent! The calamari was top-notch! We were pretty certain that our server was learning his job but he was trying hard so for that we commend him. The service was extremely slow - not sure why. While it is nice to enjoy a liesurely dinner, we were there for over 3 hours. Although we did order appetizers, it was nearly 2 hours from the time arrival until our dinner showed up. We will go back and give it another try.

    Delicious as always. The mushroom appetizer was delectable. I chose the salmon special, and it was melt in your mouth. My husband chose his favorite, the vitello. Both dishes arrived piping hot and accompanied by perfectly presented vegetables. Tiramisu topped the evening — we apparently got the last piece!! We will be back for more!

    Our daughter’s meal was delicious & our grandkids enjoyed the tortellini & gnocchi dishes‼️ However my husband & I ordered the veal with prawns & we were extremely disappointed ‼️ The veal cold, tough & extremely dry The vegetables weren’t cooked enough as well. We were celebrating a special birthday & felt that we did not get the quality we should have for the price ‼️

    The service was very well paced and the personal attention was nice to experience for lunch dining. There was a larger table with highly energetic conversations next to us, although the barrier did help to filter the noise. Other than that, the food was really enjoyable and tasty.
