SKIP THIS ONE!

We received very poor service, waited 40 minutes for entree to arrive, received a completely well-done crusty steak (ordered medium), and were told by an overly touch-happy manager that the deserts would be on the house. Of course they weren't. By the way, the steak came with no sides at all. It was a pretty sad presentation in a lousy restaurant. AVOID THIS PLACE. There are so many other and better restaurant... view more

Bad Food, Bad Service and no refills

Do not go to this restaurant if you are thirsty. The bill included a surprise, no free refills on iced tea. This is not mentioned on the menu or by the waiter, just a surprise waiting for you when you go to pay the bill. When it was suggested to the manager that they should let the customer know there are no free refills, the manager could not care less. The food is okay, might have tasted better if it were cheaper. ... view more

WOW! IF you want to try something new...

I am noticing that there have been no recent reviews.... I personally think Acqua al 2 (2 is said, Due, its 2 in Italian) is authentic, its not to say that Old Spaghetti Factory isnt but what Acqua al 2 has to offer is a special meal that any self respecting Florentine would go out to eat at a favorite ristorante. Its not the lasagna that their mothers would slave all day for. Plus, the owners just opened a fashiona... view more

Horrible Service

I had some friends visiting and took them here for dinner. The food was good, I have no complaints about the food. The service however, was horrific. I will not go back simply because of the service. If I am going to splurge on a good meal I want someone to take care of me. Then when we got the check over 3 1/2 hours later he had included a ridiculous tip because in his words' he didn't think we'd leave him one'. I w... view more

Delicious Authentic Italian Food!

Great overall dining experience! I may be biased because I absolutely love Italian food, however this charming restaurant met all of my expectations. The menu had so many delicious looking dishes but the friendly and knowledgeable server helped us narrow down our options. We skipped the appetizer since Italian food is pretty heavy and we wanted to save room for dessert. I ordered the gnocchi with gorgonzola sauce wh... view more

ANOTHER TOURIST TRAP

VERY AVERAGE FOOD. SLOW SERVICE. RUDE WHEN WE COMPLAINED ABOUT FOOD ARRIVING COLD. ANOTHER GASLAMP LOSER THAT SERVIVES ON THE TOURISTS.

Mediocre service, Overrated food

I have received far better service at my local diner. The list of reasons for our dissatisfying experience at this supposedly ""authentic"" Florentine restaurant is too long for print, but simply put, it is not worth it. \r
