Start out your meal with one of the many appetizers like the fennel and mushroom salad or the calamari. The restaurant serves homemade pasta and offers fresh seafood options like the capellini and crab and the linguini ai frutti di mare fradiavolo. Florentino’s Restaurant also offers vegetarian options like the pasta con gorgonzola so there’s sure to be something for everyone on the menu at this Newtown, Pennsylvania restaurant.
Gave my reservation to the wrong person.. had to wait 20 minutes for another table. Very very tight in there. Small portions for price you’re paying
Wonderful intimate place, our new go to BYOB for Italian food.
Great food and waitress Sonya!!
Food is always great but we don’t frequent the restaurant much on Saturday nights because between the tile floor, glass window without curtains and low ceiling, the noise level is absolutely insane. I am not one that likes a quiet restaurant but unfortunately the noise is so loud it makes it impossible to enjoy the food which is excellent.
Cute little place with pretty good food, seems authentic. Wait staff nice. The desserts looked great but we passed.
Great neighborhood with excellent service. Food is very good.
Loved everything except the fried calamari which was rubbery and undercooked. But the scallops, mussels in red sauce, garlic bread, lobster ravioli, bob’s plate and frutti de mar were all outstanding! I would definitely go back. Restaurant was a little noisy there was a large party there that was celebrating but overall it was really nice and festive.
Good Italian, well crafted
The eggplant parmesan is the best. Next choice is pasta bolognese. Don't forget the whole wheat garlic bread.
We were seated right when we arrived, and served water then garlic bread we ordered. The salads came a few minutes after that. Both of our entrees were served within minutes after finishing our salads. Both were served quite hot. They were exactly what we expected: very, very good. We have been to thius restaurant before; we have our favorites but will try new dishes. I have to say the only complaint I ever have is table size; it's too small for two people.
A local favorite. Family owned and run.
Well prepared meal.
My wife and I had a wonderful dinner at Florentino's on Saturday night. Fortunately, we had a reservation because the restaurant is relatively small, and books up on weekends. My scallop and black pasta entree was fantastic, and my wife's fish entree was perfectly prepared. Great food along with BYOB makes Florentino's one of our favorite restaurants.
Very accommodating. Great fresh food.
Food was excellent! We had a party of four and we all enjoyed out entrees and dessert. The noise level was so high it was hard to carry on a conversation. Part of it is the layout of the restaurant. We would return but only on a less crowded weekday night.
Went here for lunch. Place is small and seating is tight. Service was good & food was good. Don’t think it was a good value for price.
Quint atmosphere and very good food. Everything was fresh and home made. Place is small so definitely need a reservation on busy nights. Can be loud but a very nice little spot.
Our salads were very good. We ordered one with goat cheese & roasted peppers and one with spinach & Gorgonzola. The Corvino entree was delicious and the veal Marsala was very good!
Reliable Spot for very good Italian Food! Small, intimate place, so make a reservation. We've been going here for years and it never disappoints. We just had the mussels appetizer (which was a bit skimpy on the mussels) but very tasty. My wife had the Salmon, I had Veal Medallions with Shrimp in a White Wine Sauce.
It was a very nice evening.
Food was excellent!
Lovely, small restaurant in the heart of Newtown Borough. Great specials. BYOB.
Outstanding food and ambiance. This will become a regular stop!
Just had dinner on Saturday night and the scallops were delicious. Best meal I’ve had in a while. Can’t wait to go back soon .
When we entered the restaurant we were seated right away, and the 2 servers quickly got us some water an opened our wine. While we were enjoying appetizers, one of the servers came over and shushed us. Our group was laughing, but not saying or doing anything inappropriate. Another table kept giving us the evil eye from across the room and their server came over to our table and asked us to be quite. Our server was very embarrassed by this, but this did not leave us with a good impression and ruined the rest of the dinner. None of us will be returning. I highly suggest that if you want to enjoy your dinner with good conversation that you go somewhere else.
Very cozy and friendly place. Food was good, but pricey. Service could be faster. It was a big birthday party that day, so it was extremely noisy. I will try ones again.
This is a lovely BYOB spot in Newtown with consistently great food and service.
Good food, but limited menu (especially appetizers).
Service was excellent and so was food. It was all fresh and delicious!
The chicken Florentino is delicious and is also a huge serving with a very generous potion of side vegetables and mashed potatoes. Stop by Triple Spirits down the block for a cocktail before or after dinner.
This place is nothing special. Chairs are ripped and service is ehhh.
Far too noisy and food just ok
The food was exceptional, and the service was even more amazing. Anything on the menu can be customized to whatever you want, and the chef cooks exactly what you ordered, and even beyond the quality you would expect. Great restaurant, and one that once you visit it once, it will be one that you will be going back to!
Great food and service was excellent also.
Eggplant parm..... that's what you need to know!!!👍😊
Dined on a Thursday night when there were only 2 other couples in the restaurant, so can't confirm complaints about noise or crowdedness as reported by others. Service was great. Waitress was friendly and attentive. We had a great meal - mussels alla pomarola appetizer was excellent. Mussels were fresh and in a light, very flavorful tomato sauce, too good to be wasted so used bread to sop up every morsel. Also recommend the Chicken Florentino. Will definitely be going back.
It's gotten really loud in the confined space, and the waitress that we had, who must have been new, was completely ignorant as to how to serve, handing hot dishes, etc. across the table for us to pass instead of walking over to the other side of the table and placing them in front of the patron. Their pastas are good, but their sauces over meat dishes are too heavy.
Florentino’s’s never disappoints. Food is the message here and it’s fine Italian. The chef specializes in fish and this is apparent on the extensive menu.
Wait service completely knowledgeable and helpful, friendly. Can be quite busy on weekends, reserve. Lunch or dinner-either is enjoyable. Parking always has been easy for us on the street, or around in back. BYOB
And we live six minutes away!
We went to Florentino’s regularly when we lived in the area and now we return for special occasions. We are always glad we did. It does cost $3 plus, but the garlic wheat bread is worth it. If you like ice cream, a stop a few shops down at the Zebra Striped Whale Cafe is a must after dinner. The location in downtown, historic Newtown Borough is fantastic. Ask for a table by the window by the street. It has the feel of being in a quaint village in a city.
The lasagna and eggplant parm are the best things there.
The food was very good. Unfortunately, my wife found a paper piece of an old menu in her platter. Also , we were promised additional bread several times but it didn’t show up until after my wife and I finished our meals. Prices were reasonable.It was a non-memorable meal and there are better options in Newtown for Italian fare
