What a fantastic night! Our server was just the best. He was attentive without bugging us and he did a great job making suggestions. The pork shank was one of the best dishes I have ever had and the gnocchi were as soft as down pillows. I’m so happy I live in the area and this place can be my boyfriend’s and my special spot. We look forward to coming back again soon.

Busy restaurant. Had to wait 30 minutes for table despite having reservations. The restaurant is also very loud. Food was fine. May give this place 1 more chance.

We loved visiting on a Sunday afternoon. We sat by the fireplace and enjoyed a half price bottle of wine, a wonderful caprese salad, and the most amazing lasagna I’ve ever had.

Took my girlfriend here for a spontaneous date on a weeknight. I’ve been here twice before and the food was delicious as always. It was a slow night for the restaurant so the noise level was low. Our waiter was accommodating and prompt. I will return here often.

Outstanding anniversary dinner. The waiter was great at providing recommendations. My husband had the braised pork shank and I’ve never heard him rave about something so much. I had the shrimp and scallop risotto which was very tasty. I had totally forgotten that I put it was our anniversary on the open table reservation but they brought us tiramisu and a sweet note with well wishes.

I love Floriana’s. The food is delicious, and service is professional. The space is noisy, which is normal in Washington’s small old buildings, and the window-seats are cold. If you never eat pasta, make an exception at Floriana.

We were a bit surprised as to how slow the lunch service was - having eaten at Floriana many, many times...this was the worst (1 1/2 hours). At dinner, leisurely service is okay, but lunch diners need to be back at their desks.

Fantastic food in a cosy and friendly setting. The food is a little pricey, but not too much given the quality and the quantity. Highly recommended for a dinner with friends or a partner where you want something much nicer than the average.

We love Floriana so, so much. I found it because of good Google reviews, but we keep going back because every single dish on the menu is outstanding. Try the celery root risotto, you’ll LOVE it.

This place is a Dupont Circle gem. I've come here several times (pre- and post-covid) and it's always first rate. The food is first-rate and the chef is great about special requests. Michael is a terrific server and very good with wine recommendations. The brussels sprout appetizer is excellent as are all the fish dishes (esp. the scallops) and the risotto entrees.
