This restaurant is one we enjoy frequenting as a couple. We went at 6pm when they opened and we're lucky enough to have a table for walk-ins as we decided to go last minute and had not booked.

After much hype we as a party of 7 decided to give this restaurant a try. The starters were not bad but disappointed in the mains. Drinks expensive and no one finished their mains. Credit where due was the seafood risotto. Rabbit was very disappointing and steak mediocre. Bill over R3500! Better value elsewhere .

Very impressed, has to be the best Italian restaurant in the Umhlanga area. All dishes ordered were authentic & served to perfection. I will be visiting more often.

I will recommend Al Firenze for all, nice outdoors as long as the wind is not blowing. One of the reliable 5 star venues in Durban North.

Had oven baked artichoke heats, melanzanie parmesan, and baked porchini mushrooms. Hubby had prawns with linguini with napoletana sauce. Great service and good value. Has been in business for over 20 years for a reason! This is on our list for many years to come.

The 4 of us had the most wonderful lunch, it spanned the whole menu and we were not disappointed with the food and service. I particularly enjoyed the Octopus starter which is not readily available at restaurants in Durban, both in quality and quantity. I would recommend them to anyone.
