Worst experience ever. I left the restaurant without eating. I have food allergies and when I ordered my meal, the waitress failed to indicate that they were not able to accommodate us. We take an annual trip and ate there last year and were satisfied with the food so returned this year and ordered the same item. The appetizer came out without the fixings. When we saw the waitress not returning to our table, we called her over and to ask about the dips and she told us they had nothing to offer us due to the food allergies. I looked at the menu and saw they had a creamy basil sauce. I asked if we can have some. She brought out a pouring dish with blended basil and water. I ordered a shrimp pizza and asked instead of marinara sauce (allergic to tomatoes) use pesto sauce. When the pizza came out, they poured the same basil water at the top of the pizza after it was cooked. It looked horrible. I told her we could not eat that and we do not wish to order anything else. There were other people on the table who also ordered food. The waitress started yelling at me that they are trying their best to accommodate us and we are being difficult. I explained to her it is a matter of life and death. She continued to yell at us and started taking all the food away from the other people on the table. When I stood up to her, she went and got the manager and he started yelling at us without taking the time to listen to the situation. I WILL NEVER RETURN HERE AND ENCOURAGE OTHERS TO NEVER GO THERE. There are many other restaurants which are much worthy of my money such as Sofias, Napoli and Vincents.

A visit to New yorks ""little italy"" would not be complete without a visit here. The food is outstanding in it's authenticity...one dish after another,,delicious!! The Broccoli Rabe' and Calzones are by far the best the area has to offer. There is a great selection of wines and the bar is fully stocked with enough selections to please the most finicky. I'm a single malt man myself, and am always pleased with what the bar has to offer. As for cigars...sit back, relax and have a smoke...many,many to choose from. As for the staff...the owners are very cool, laid back and make you feel right at home. The service is exceptional, attractive and pleasant. Keep in mind, this is not a fast food joint so some dishes may take a litle while to be brought to the table, but the wait is well worth it....and there is never a rush by the staff to get you out the door after your food is served. A very relaxed, accommodating atmosphere. Dine in or dine out on the sidewalk and enjoy the sites,smells and sounds of Little Italy. Florios isn't just a place to visit during the Feast of San Gennaro...it's a place to call home anytime you're in New York

We found this place inadvertently and ended up going almost every day. The food was impressive. We loved the people and the atmosphere. We read about the cigar store, but found we loved it all. The staff were friendly, didn't rush us, and made us feel at home. We arrived late for dinner but they accomodated us all the same. Food is served in a non-smoking atmomsphere with cigars in the front. Try the mozarella, pizza, chicken parm, mussels or about anything. Very authentic and down to earth place to relax in Little Italy.

One of the best places in NYC. Brought some out of town friends here because they wanted to smoke cigars and cigarettes. Not only is Florio's great for a wide variety of cigars and smoker friendly atmosphere, the food is delicious as well.
This place is like an old mid-20th Century hangout. One of the best around today by far.

Florio's is amazing! Without doubt, one of the finest restaurants in Little Italy. The atmosphere is outstanding and the selection of hand made, cognac aged cigars, Ports, Cognacs and Single Malt scotches is unrivaled. Prices are terrific as well. The staff is courteous and enthousiastic. You never know whom you might run into as well. The military theme in the cigar bar is cool as can be.

Walked in to watch the Italia/Germany match. We sat at the bar and were told there was a 20.00 PP minimum. OK, no problem. It's more than Felix (the trendiest World Cup place) but fine. We are there 5 minutes (game has not started) and we are hounded to order apps/drinks. We ask for a few min and are given eye rolls. We order apps and are told we have to order ""everything at once, so make sure that is all you want."" We order apps and they are delicious. Next, the smell of cigar smoke fills the air and the people who work there are screaming at each other so loud you cannot hear the game or the person talking to you. It's not old school Italian charm--it's annoying. We order a couple of drinks and our bill is delivered. Two people at the bar met their 20.00 PP minimum and were surprised the cranky bartender included an 18% gratuity. I would always tip but this was really gutsy.

i started coming to this place when i was 3, about 13 years later, i always find time to go back and meet my uncle larry and aunt pauline(who run the cigar shop and restauraunt) i have extreme passion for food and i can say this some of the greatest iv ever tasted, the atmosphere always stays in my heart, its extremely family oriented and the lounge/bar is very romantic and respectable. all the waiters have shown excellent respect to anyone that has ever gone there(except for the guy who hates this gem of a restauraunt) you really need to experience this affordable, romantic and classic culture eating in the city in the heart of little italy.

A ""Best kept secret"" Florio's is a home away from home to many of it's patrons. Wonderful, homemade pastas and delicious entrees are its hallmark. The atmosphere is friendly and warm in this cigar friendly haven. There is even a smoke free dining room and an outdoor cafe. Dining or just relaxing with a cocktail after work is always a wonderful experience here. Highly reccommended!

I was horrified by the review I just read about Florios. I have been going there for 10 years and never had anything but excellent service. The staff could not be warmer or more accommodating. And the food is unbelievable-it is some of the best Italian I have ever had. It is also extremely afforadble, and a great place for a large party. I would enthusiastically recommend this restaurant to everyone I know.
