Have dined at Villa Firenze several times. This time it was very disappointing. Ordered Penne Arrabiata with Sausage... It came with no sausage. Had to order club soda three times before it was delivered. Very little attention from server. Too many other choices of places to dine to risk a repeat of this lack of service and attention to details.

Make no mistake about it. This is the best authentic Italian Family and Chef owned restaurant in the City. I would rate many of the special dishes on par with Cioppino’s in Vancouver for those of you who know what this means.

We thought the food was good - as fine dining. The service was excellent. The value was good but it was maybe a bit expensive.

The food as always was amazing! The only downside this time was a large group was dining on the east half of the restaurant and they were very loud. It made it difficult to talk at times. It’s never been like that before when I’ve been there, and it wouldn’t stop me from going back at all. Everyone loved their meal!

The overall supper was very good, with two exceptions. Their signature portobello mushroom appetizer seemed different from my last visit and it was no where near as hot nor as delicious as I recall. Secondly, when you ask if potatoes and veggies can be substituted with pasta and the answer is yes not a problem, you shouldn’t find an up charge on your bill for change; especially if you weren’t advised at the time of the request.

The staff took the time to read my request when I made my booking. They said Happy Birthday to my wife and made us feel comfortable.

The food here really is divine. They are masters of Italian sauces and home-made pasta and it all comes at a reasonable price. We were delighted that the portabello mushroom starter was available – it's become a real crowd-pleaser. We'd return for that alone!

I BELIEVE THAT THIS WOULD BE A GREAT PLACE TO EAT IF YOU HAVE A MEAL OTHER THAN PASTA.
THE PORTOBELLO MUSHROOM APPY IS GOOD BUT OVER PRICED
I HAD GLUTEN FREE PASTA WITH MY DISH AND EXCUSE ME BUT4.95 EXTRA
NO PASTA DISH WITHOUT A PROTEIN SHOULD BE MORE THAN 15.95
TOO EXPENSIVE AT 76.85BEFORE TAXES AND TIP. FOR ONE APPY 2 DISHES OF PASTA AND 1 GLASS OF WINE.

Great food and wine. Servers were very helpful in selecting a wine and very friendly. Food arrived promptly. The desert was also very good. I ate too much! If you haven't been, highly recommended.

Service was more like fast food than a mid scale restaurant. Waitress a little pushy and tactless. Mushroom appetizer was very good but salmon was terrible and other food portions were ‘texas size’. Charm and quality has definitely deteriorated since we were last there a few years ago. It’s off our list for now.

Had the portobello mushroom which is always fantastic along with the lasagna which was excellent service was great. Only concern was parking was tight and the server could be a bit more generous with the bread. This is a great place for a business dinner, special occasion or get together with friends- service is always friendly and efficient. Recommend making reservations.

We went to Villa Firenzie for our one year anniversary dinner. We have been to Villa Firenzie in the past, but it's been a few years. The food was better than I remembered. Our server Russell was excellent, I can't remember the last time I've had such good service. We will definitely be back and will recommend to friends.

Our server, Russell, was humorous and great! We had small children in our party and required more attention because of them. From the minute we walked in to leaving, all the staff were helpful and attentive to our needs and didn't seem to mind that we had babies with us.
The food was exceptional. The fresh pasta was delicious!
We would definitely come back again.
