One of my favorites over the years and now too. Must visit restaurant for me regularly for great food and service
Floriana is among my favorite restaurants in DC. I have been there a half dozen times.
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.
Great food, great service in a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Great neighborhood restaurant.
Nice place in a great local DC neighborhood - especially for those who enjoy a good Italian meal!
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.
Always great food & service!
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.
Outstanding food and ambiance.
Highly recommend. Great food, warm atmosphere, friendly staff. It became one of my favorite restaurants.
Perfect place for gathering with friends and family.
Great! Good was delicious.
Food is divine (the lasagna is no joke!). Ask to be seated at one of Michael’s tables!!! We are outside which they have made so cozy.
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.
AJ was great! And the food was incredible- the filet was out of this world!
First time . We loved the greasy delicious pasta and terrific service.
We sat outside so ambiance and noise level were of course hard to rate but service and food were excellent and as professional as can be
Wait staff is very friendly and prompt. Food is fresh and the atmosphere is perfect.
Price for a glass of wine is way overpriced. But main courses - both quality and prices - are excellent
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.
Delicious food but was out of their most popular options on an early weeknight
It is an excellent restaurant. The food is wonderful and the service first class.
Amazing ambience, service and food. For my first time I was extremely happy. I usually don’t double dip in restaurants, but I’ll definitely come back again!!
Amazing food, better service, one of our neighborhood favorites! Never disappointed
Best place to have a celebration 🍾 very elegant and charming
We come back here every time we are in DC. Fabulous food, service and ambiance!
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 was recommended by a relative and it did not disappoint
Wonderful menu both cocktails wine and food. We will be back next time we are here
Delightful restaurant…highly recommend
The lasagna was a little too crisp around the edges, but otherwise delicious.
Perfect food and service, as always!
Outstanding in every way
Wonderful service and people, would definitely recommend for a date night.
Excellent food and libations, warm, festive ambiance, superb service.
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.
Don't miss the neighborhood gem! Possibly some of the best Italian food we have had in the states. Perfect for a date night or small group. Cozy and warm environment!
