We enjoyed our evening but it was not as good as previous times, which was a few years ago. It did not seem to have the same ambience for us. It used to be special but now it is the same other restaurants for us.

Food was over salted, Veal was tough, not what i would expect from veal. My wife had salmon quite dry and again over seasoned. Vegetables: I guess they were going for crunchy but seemed like they had merely been peeled. The Brunello was good.

Our waitress was absolutely outstanding. She was extremely knowledgeable, offered wine pairings, and handled all of our inquiries with such ease. Outstanding tiramisu!

We have gone to the Villa for many years and the consistency of the food and beverages is amazing. We always have excellent service, and it is unmatched in satisfying their customers expectations. The daily specials are truly wonderful and have the same quality as other selections on their extensive menus. Pina and Joe are like family and they make sure you never go home wishing for more.

This is an outstanding restaurant. It's been a favourite of mine for many years, and the food never disappoints. I think it's the best Italian food in town.

We had an early lunch before catching a flight. The majority of our meals were excellent. The vegetables that came with the chicken could have been cooked a bit more, Linguine and clam sauce was also very tasty. Portions were a good enough size. The price point was very good for the food, but the wine was pricey. Our server was very energetic and very helpful.

Food is really good, but the service was very inefficient and slow. The place is also a bit dated.

My mother and I enjoyed a lovely meal here for the first time. We loved the warm and cozy atmosphere and delightful flavours in each of our bowls! Focaccia bread was fluffy and crispy and couldn't have been better. Unfortunately we were seated near a very loud table and it made the dining experience a bit tough in means of communicating with each other, but we understand that some crowds come to restaurants where they shouldn't be while so intoxicated. It couldn't have wrecked our experience as a whole however, magnificent! I will be back for another bite soon!

We really enjoyed this restaurant. The ambiance is more of a family/friends feel rather than intimate or special occassion. The food came out hot and very tasty. The service was perfect - they were completely open to changes and special orders, had very sound recommendations, great specials and asked us questions about our preferences to make suggestions (i.e. sweeter sauce or spicy etc). They have a very good wine list and make a decent martini! Oh, and the bread - YUM!

Love this restaurant. Beautifully renovated house with lots of parking. Family run and authentic. Lots to choose from on the menu. Awesome home made pasta dishes. Yummy bruschetta, and super delicious portobello mushroom appetizers. A chef that knows how to cook salmon and house wine that was excellent. They have an awesome cheesecake for dessert but I rarely have ‘room’ for it.

This was a combined b'day (3) & anniversay (2) celebration, we were not rushed, took over 2.5 hours, enjoyed the moment, food, was excellent as usual. This is not an inexpensive restaurant, but for a special occasion, its well worth the cost.

We've been to VIlla Firenze several times and it's always fantastic food, drink and experience. The food is fresh and tasty and more like Italy than most "Italian" restaurants. The portabello mushroom starter is not to be missed. Service, even when busy, is always great.

I seldom give max reviews, nor the minimum unless absolutely necessary; for Villa Firenze, it was my first visit and I would, without hesitation, recommend this place to another and look forward to dining there again. The ambiance was a perfect mix of old world charm, relatively quiet noise level (we could hear each other easily), the food was lovely and everyone thought their dish was done to perfection. Great selection on the menu as well, from the farm lover to the sea critic, the Italian heritage embraced these dishes with texture and taste. Well done!
