    Haven't been to Floriana in awhile, and it's as good as ever. The food was fabulous (very generous portions), and the red wine special for the evening was delicious. The service was perfect and the ambiance warm and cozy. We'll be back!

    First time here but won’t be the last. The best Italian restaurant we’ve been to in DC by leaps and bounds. Everything from service, food and ambiance was fantastic. And all within walking distance from home. Can’t wait to go again.

    I was not impressed by the service I received tonight. In the middle of us ordering, our waiter went to the table across and took that groups order instead. We’ve already waited 30 mins to get any attention let alone water. My friend and I felt discriminated against - we look young compared to everyone else in the restaurant. I asked for the manager explaining how disrespectful that was. The waiter instead apologized and comped our salad and gave us a free dessert. The waiter apologized again at the end of our meal and explained he’s been working since 9am. That does not excuse the way we were treated. If the waiters are overworked, please address this as it might affect future customers.

    When deciding where to eat on Valentines day, I browsed Opentable and Resy and many restaurants disclosed at that point that the only available option was a set menu for a certain price. I did not want that, so when I came across Floriana, I happily saw that there was no disclosure that there would only be a set menu available. I booked it and thought nothing more of it. Upon arriving, we were presented with a multiple course menu. I asked if we were able to order off the regular menu, to which we were told no. The price for the set menu was not disclosed on the menu or verbally by our waiter - and frankly, if it had been, we may have left. We purposely chose Floriana to avoid the set menu experience and it seemed we had been duped into it. When we got the bill, it turned out it was $110 per person. I would not recommend going here if there's a chance there might be a set menu, but the normal menu has a great lasagna and visible prices!

    The service was great. However, we visited on Valentine's Day and they offered a set menu. Unfortunately, it did not live up to expecation.

    The restaurant was extraordinarily loud. We’ve been several times and don’t remember the volume being so intense. It was challenging for our party to hear each other. Also, lighting is quite low and, if not for cellphone flashlights, the menus with fairly light and small font somewhat difficult to read.

    We arrived at the restaurant around 5:25pm, and after being greeted graciously by the staff, found ourselves the first ones there. It gave us the opportunity to see how beautiful this converted old DC row house is -- the white linen set tables shone in the soft light accented by just enough white Christmas lights. It was beautiful. After we were seated, the General Manager himself came over to the table to welcome us. And within a few minutes, more patrons began streaming in so that by 6:15pm all the tables were occupied. With the room full, there was a noticeable happy vibe in the air. Food and wine were so delicious, and our smiling and very good waiter was outstanding in taking care of us. This is really a special place. You have to try it.

    Great service. Quiet, we ate very early which always helps. Split portions as requested. The Lasagna was obviously made by a chef who was trained in a "French" milieu and has never cooked in Italy nor, for that matter in New York or Brooklyn. Where was the sauce ?

    Wife and I ate here for our anniversary, very nice restaurant, sat at a large window overlooking 17th St. The food was delicious and the wine selection was very good. We had calamari friti to start, my wife had the whole bronzino and I had Tuscan steamed scallops for the main course and we both had a very good Pecorino wine. We finished with a lovely tiramisu and espressos. It was all OUTSTANDING. If you want great Italian food in an intimate setting you need to try Floriana!
