“First time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 May 2014

This restaurant has been in town for some time now but I'd not got round to trying it for some reason anyway the day for that finally arrived and we as a table of six had a dinner reservation. From the outside it looks smaller than it is but inside it has a nice feel/layout rather than just a big open space.

I must be getting old as I forget what I had as starter and had to check back on the online menu, it was the Gamberoni which was good. I tried one of their Vesuvio pizzas and it was very good - so often it's possibly to eat soggy pizza base tasting of nothing but this was most acceptable!

What I really need to start doing though is writing reviews straight after as it's too easy to forget things - we drank both white then red wine, it would have been Pinot Grigio for the white...

Anyway, yes - I would recommend trying this place. On the day it was a little quiet but that's because it was a Monday.

“Excellent”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2014 via mobile

Brilliant, food good value for money,service wonderful, we had a young Romanian waitress that was so full of fun it made our night. Wine choice is good, restaurant is airy and well lit. You can see the chefs whilst at your table in the top part of the restaurant. It was lovely to see all the staff smiling and enjoying their work, though who could be unhappy in such wonderful surroundings. Bravo

“The good is to die for!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2014 via mobile

We go to piazza Firenze quite often and it's always superb!! Everything from the service, the amazing wine and food and in the end when you ask for the bill they always give nice shots of limoncello and after eights!!! If you have a starter I really love the cold seafood salad and for main the pastas are always really good, my favourite is the seafood pasta and the romana pasta!! Do go in and try this amazing restaurant!!

“Real Italian food!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2014

The is the best Italian food I have had in ages. I am very passionate about Italian food and this place ticks all the boxes. Great atmosphere, polite and efficient staff and some of the best food I have had out side of Italy. And to top it off, seriously reasonable prices. A++++++++++++++

“Tasty food at a reasonable price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2014

We were in Godalming for Easter Saturday on which day this small otherwise sleepy market town comes alive with market stalls, a carrousel, Morris dancers and a Punch and Judy show. These events seemed to have frightened the owners of the town's two haute cuisine establishments La Luna and Fleurie into taking a holiday - at exactly the same time. This left Piazza Firenze as the only contender for Italian food, and it did not disappoint. From the comprehensive lunchtime menu I picked a ribeye steak served folded over a veritable mountain of new potatoes and spinach all swimming in a rich red wine sauce. My wife was pleased with her penne. Both excellent value at!£12.95 and £7.95 respectively. There is a good children's menu. A bottle of Chilean Merlot cost £14.95. Service from a Polish waitress was friendly and efficient.
