I've been frequenting Firenze for several years. Always really liked the food. The new location is a big step up from the previous one. New space is larger and more comfortable, with outdoor seating and an nice bar area.

Glad we found it. Cozy, excellent menu and wine list. The Dover sole prepared tableside was excellent. Wonderful service in a romantic atmosphere.

This is a very solid cozy spot. I heard they have moved since I last dined there so I can't say anything about the new location but the old location was very cozy with great service and solid food

In the midst of the dust, noise, and chaos of the Second Avenue subway construction this little restaurant offers a lovely escape. It is tiny, ten or so tables. The food is good and it is priced around the same as are most Italian restaurants.

This cozy little Italian restaurant must be a local gem. The only negative was a hint of an odor which we couldn't quite put our finger on ( not a cooking odor) but which didn't ruin our meal. Our waiter had a very thick Italian...More
