Love this restaurant. Beautifully renovated house with lots of parking. Family run and authentic. Lots to choose from on the menu. Awesome home made pasta dishes. Yummy bruschetta, and super delicious portobello mushroom appetizers. A chef that knows how to cook salmon and house wine that was excellent. They have an awesome cheesecake for dessert but I rarely have ‘room’ for it.

This was a combined b'day (3) & anniversay (2) celebration, we were not rushed, took over 2.5 hours, enjoyed the moment, food, was excellent as usual. This is not an inexpensive restaurant, but for a special occasion, its well worth the cost.

We've been to VIlla Firenze several times and it's always fantastic food, drink and experience. The food is fresh and tasty and more like Italy than most "Italian" restaurants. The portabello mushroom starter is not to be missed. Service, even when busy, is always great.

I seldom give max reviews, nor the minimum unless absolutely necessary; for Villa Firenze, it was my first visit and I would, without hesitation, recommend this place to another and look forward to dining there again. The ambiance was a perfect mix of old world charm, relatively quiet noise level (we could hear each other easily), the food was lovely and everyone thought their dish was done to perfection. Great selection on the menu as well, from the farm lover to the sea critic, the Italian heritage embraced these dishes with texture and taste. Well done!

As always, a great place for Italian cuisine! We both noticed food wasn’t hot enough but we dine here frequently and this was the first time this have ever occurred. Our server quickly took care of the issue, cannot wait to eat here again soon. Veal & portabello mushroom are 10/10!!

We go every year for our anniversary. We stood at the front door with no service for over 10 minutes until I finally went into the dining room to find someone. We had a reservation so they should of known we were coming and the place was empty. The service was so so this time, it’s usually excellent. Some larger groups came in after us and that took precedence over us with the server so we sat there for awhile with empty plates. We were never asked if we wanted more wine just the dessert menu and the dish we asked to order and take home was never ordered. We were just given the bill. Like I said it’s our go to anniversary dinner and we also give great reviews and recommended others to try. After last night it was very disappointing.

Attended forValentines day. Reservation at 5 pm second couple to be seated when restaurant opened. Server was pleasant, prompt, and informative as to menu.
Appetizers were very good. One entree came out hot and ready to eat, my entree came out luke warm and had to be sent back to be heated up.
Price was reasonable but slightly more expensive compared to similar quality restaurants.
Overall experience and value was good.
I would recommend this restaurant.
