Excellent food, Tina the Owner recommended all the dishes we ordered that were fabulous. Thoroughly enjoyed dining at Villa Firenze. And the wine Edizione Fantini was too good at a very reasonable price.

I have not been to Villa Firenza in years, the food was tasty, prepared to perfection. What sets Villa Firenza apart, is without question, the service...attentive, with enough space to create a feeling of being there on your own, time for conversation, enjoy every mouthful. A wonderful location for everything from a large gathering to an intimate evening out.

Wine selection was so good, I’m not a red wine fan,however the red wine my partner had was delicious, as was my white.
We both had a pasta dish, we could tell it was fresh home made pasta, the spices and flavours paired so well with everything we had. Recommend by our server for portobello mushroom as an appetizer. It was amazing.!
I highly suggest for anyone to come here for a great Italian restaurant experience. Was great 15 years ago and still phenomenal today.

Once we arrived at the restaurant (traffic was horrendous), we found it to be very full and very, very noisy. Our service was outstanding (thank you Chung Q), the meals were pretty good, but not as outstanding as our last visit to Villa Firenze; maybe our expectations were a little too high. The mushroom appetizer is good, but seems a little over-priced at $18.95.

Overall the food was good. Disappointed in the salad mista- huge lettuce leaves and a few slices of tomato. Not presented well.

This is a favourite local of ours. Service is always welcoming and helpful. The food is traditional Italian cooking and delicious. Our server was very good and provided us with the cost of the specials without having to ask. I would recommend without hesitation.

I am not sure if they were understaffed or the kitchen can't keep up. It took 30 minutes to get my soup and over an hour to get our food. After all that waiting my meat was luke warm and wife's dish wasn't great. Add the tiny parking lot to the list and it wasn't what we were hoping for. Our waiter was nice, but he was responsible for way to many tables. They could have used more help on the floor for sure.

Our server was amazing as was all the staff.
Ambiance..Perfect! Dinner Below!
Latte for me and our server picked a beautiful Merlot Cabernet blend for my husband and we took home our dessert because house made Tiramisu could not be left behind.

Entre's were uniformly good and portions were very generous. My rack of lamb was excellent. The calamari appetizer was served lukewarm and was not exciting. The Mussels were better. Nice room and the service was good.
A pleasant dinner but didn't knock my socks off.
