Biggest disappointment – New in the area, been trying local restaurants, read decent reviews regarding this place so I went there with my boyfriend, what a DISAPPOINTMENT, place looked like a yard sale,clattered with old looking things, we were taken to a table(by an arrogant little man that could'nt take hes eyes of me, I noticed later he did that to most women), in the back corner underneath some steps,everytime i got up i banged my head.The food supposedly Italian,bet there isn't one Italian in the whole place,was greasy,too small and overpriced ,the chunks of regiano cheese and olives were delicious, only because they were't cooked there where has the foccia bread was burnt and greasy,that was cooked there,If you are a bit on the large side don't even try going to the bathroom because you can't fit so i don't see how this place is wheelchair access, tables are so close to each other that one can hear conversation from more than one table,the waiters were really trying to make everyone happy and they do have an extended wine list but again overpriced, don't these people know what the economy is right now

1 of the most romantic places in NYC – I have been there before with a large group of people and because this place is very romantic i was not sure that they will like it. They all raved about my choice and this time i was back with a date! It was my birthday and we went to treat ourselves. This is probably one of the most romantic and welcoming restaurants in NYC! Candle on each table, exposed brick walls, etc. The service is great and the food too. We ordered from the specials - stuffed mushrooms and asparagus wrapped in prosciutto. The chicken with the roasted peppers was also very delicious. We were so full that we skipped the dessert. Very cozy place, highly recommended!

Italian Gem on the UES – A stroll up 2nd Avenue in Yorkville on a warm Saturday evening, past rows of noisy bar/restaurants with sidewalk seating and young crowds reveling, brings you to the far more subdued Firenze. The well dressed owner stands outside and quickly spots the slightest interest. He corrals you into the restaurant, guaranteeing you will enjoy your meal. You're walked past the civilized bar area with a sophisticated piano player and are handed over to a smiling waiter to be seated. Romantic tables decorated with subtle floral tablecloths, painted chargers, tall candlesticks and mini flower pots are more reminiscent of a French brasserie but the food is 100% Italian. A basket of bread comes with a dish of olives in wonderfully fresh oil. Also on offer is a tomato butter which was not a favorite but is more than made up for by the hunks of good Parmigiano Reggiano presented alongside. The special prosciutto appetizer is wonderful and the Chilean Sea Bass is fresh and tasty, served with a generous portion of sauteed vegetables. More typical fare like Caesar Salad and Penne Alla Vodka are well made examples of Italian classics. We were tempted into ordering the special dessert of fresh berries flambeed in vodka and Grand Marnier and poured over vanilla ice cream. The table-side presentation is entertaining but the fruit comes out much too sweet and turns into a soupy mess when poured over the ice cream. Certainly not worth the $18 charge. But the tiramisu was another well made classic. The service was effusively friendly but they believe their customers (mostly couples) would like to linger so no quick meals here. We left happily full of good wine and good food and with no need to take the owner up on his guarantee; we certainly did enjoy our meal. And with so many choices on the extensive menu, we'll definitely be back to sample more!

you cant go wrong at Firenze – I love this restaurant! It is my favorite restaurant in NY! Definitely worth the high prices. I had the mixed salad for an appetizer and it was SO good. The atmosphere is pretty, the staff is warm and friendly without being stuffy. Our server explained the way every entree was made. You can't go wrong at Firenze.

By Far Best Italian Restaurant on the Upper East Side!! – I discovered Firenze about a year ago. I've returned on numerous times. I am Italian and grew up in a very Italian neighborhood. I am VERY picky when it comes to Italian food. My experience EVERYTIME at Firenze has been excellent service, strong drinks and every dish has always been absolutely delicious!! The atmosphere is very romantic. You will not be sorry. This restaurant is quite the gem!!

Best little Italian restaurant on the upper east side... – This place is really small, but the food AND service is excellent! Had the eggplant flan as an appetizer. I tried their bowtie pasta special with salmon, and my friend had their chilean sea bass. Both were very good. We ended our meal with their apple tart dessert. Waiters and staff were very friendly.

Food, atmosphere, service....everything is GREAT!! – I was with my parents looking for another Italian restaurant in the area and just happened to find this tiny, cozy restaurant. We were right that we decided to have the late lunch at Firenze...the wine was great (me and mom picked different white wine, dad had a glass of red), appetizer (meat and cheese combo, the mozzarella was awesome) and pasta were just perfectly prepared and they even divided them into separate plates for us since we were sharing those. I loved the cappuccino and Tiramisu to finish it up!! The waiters were very professional and friendly so we could really relax and enjoy the entire meal. Me and mom actually visited Firenze again for a dinner a few months later, and it was just as great.

An all-around great dining experience! – The food and ambience is top notch! It's a very relaxing, romantic setting in the heart of the upper east side. I've been many times and always recommend to my friends. They really know how to impress their guests - definitely worth checking out!
