We were greeted by a waitress who would have rather been someplace else other than at this place. To make things worse the food was not very good. Having been brought up in an Italian community and worked and played in Chicago, I have experienced the best of the best in Italian Charm and food. This was the second class and I find it hard to call it Italiano.
5 thumbs down.

Love, love, love this place. Met a few of my friends and had lunch here during rush hour. I ord)ered the house salad and it was the best salad ever. You should also try the picnic salad. It is the best ever (it is enough for two) plus the breadsticks are to die for.
This was my father's favorite restaurant so we would go at least once a month to eat.

My husband and I went to dinner at the Florentine last year around the time of my birthday. I had told my husband that this place was really good and that we should go together some time. When we finally sat down the waitress took our orders. When the food came out, the portion size was ridiculously small and we both just looked at each other. We decided instead of making a fuss we would just enjoy what was before us. Being that the portion was so small, my husband and I finished our dinner rather quickly. When the waitress came back to the table she asked me if we enjoyed our meal and I said with a smile, yes it was great. She told me she knew it because of the way we wolfed our food down! Can u believe it? We haven't been back since that day. I was totally mortified that she had the nerve to treat us this way. I pray that nobody else who goes in this establishment gets treated as poorly as we did.

My husbands Birthday is Feb. 17th ,the same as mine! We decided to go out to eat at the Florentine and was very Happy with The Service from our Waitress Dotty! She was on the ball!!! Plus the Food was delicious! And the price was great for the large portions you receive! It was our first time eatting out there. Right when we were seated a staff member was leaning over tables and throwing her hair around which was long and not well groomed. I kept grossing out and wondering if her hair was going to get in everyones food! Then I see her running her hands through her hair while handeling silverware and rolling napkins! I told my husband "" I hope I dont get a hair rolled up in my Silveware or I'm out of here!"" I let the manager know my concern. Next thing I hear is a girls voice saying "" I can _ _ _ _ any man in this restaurant!"" (laughing). That really got my husbands Blood Pressure Up! This same girl proceeded to stand where we could see her and suck on a sucker and stair at me while Im trying to eat my dinner! She then says loudly to the other staff ""SOMEONE said something about my hair and now I have to wear it up!"" BOY I was steaming, that was so unproffessional!!!! I proceeded to let the Manager know so hopeful this young lady straightens up her act or she will give this resteraunt a bad name! The Manager did go right back and talked to her when we left. I recommend anyone to try their food because it is excellent, but I wont ever go back if she is still there:(

I was there with my girlfriend and our daughter having dinner with family before we drove back down to florida the next day. After dinner we go outside to find our car had been broken into from the parking lot our stereo, cds and expensive shoes were stolen. When we made the staff aware of what had happened they told their security guard who talked very briefly with my girlfriend and then walked away and never came back for a report or anything. The staff didnt have anything to say about the incident at all. We were even parked in a lighted area. They do have security but of no use as when he was told that i was inside he said ""I Know"" and never came to find me. Avoid

I went here on a date, and after moving from an over lit table we settled in for a great dinner. I had the Chicken Paramigiana and my date had the Chicken Marsala.
Both were excellent tasting but my date mentioned that she was expecting some pasta or rice with her Chicken Marsala. It was basically a chicken breast in a sauce with nothing to grab the sauce with once the chicken breast was consumed.
I felt my Chicken Paramigiana was quite tastey, but the pasta sauce was not as good as the homemade pasta sauce my lovely date made me just a week earlier. Hers was the best I've ever had.
Nevertheless, we enjoyed our date, liked the atmosphere, and felt we were eating a truly authentic Italian meal.
I would definately go back!
I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

Tucked in to the Franklinton near west side lies the home of truly great Italian food. The Florentine has been a favorite of mine and my family for as long as I can remember. In fact, I cut my teeth on their breadsticks! Go safe and get Spaghetti, or sample any of the other wonderful items off their menu. A decent wine list compliments the meal and their desserts are well worth saving room for. If I could, I would give the Florentine 10 stars!
