Love this BYOB place. Three of us had the cod special and it was great. Nice sized piece of fish, expertly prepared, with some mixed veggies and mashed potatoes. Nice dinner. Been here perhaps a dozen times, and it's always good. A bit noisy sometimes (including us!) but overall a nice experience.
Food and service is always great. Love their eggplant parm.
Wonderful Birthday Dinner!
What a great little Italian restaurant in the heart of Newtown. I would recommend reservations as this restaurant fills very quickly on the weekend. Having tried most of the entrees there it's a very hard choice to choose just one. The homemade soups from scratch are always delicious. Food presentation is a 10. Not to forget the appetizers they are also very delicious as the fried calamari is excellent. The homemade desserts are delicious and tasty. What a great place to eat.
Had A reservation for 715 waited for ever to be seated . Only two other tables in the restaurant has people Them. Waited 15 minutes for someone to come to our table. Not sure if I will return.
We waited an hour before we got our salad and soup. The waitress said she forgot to put our ticket in but never apologized or never brought us anything the whole time. We had to ask where our food was.
The food is consistently excellent!
Food is always delicious and the service is always great!
Love the food! Service is perfection. It is a small area for tables- so it is comfortable but close. A crowded night you can expect loud conversations - trouble hearing when table mates are chatting. It is still a favorite!
The food and service are very good, and I would have given this restaurant a much better rating, except for the noise level. It is a small restaurant, and it is not designed spatially nor acoustically to handle a full house. In fact the noise level made it difficult for us to have an enjoyable experience, let alone a conversation. We had placed a reservation for Valentine’s Day; perhaps, try going on day/night that won’t attract such a large crowd.
will go back. food was excellent, service was excellent. no complaints. litle gem in the middle of newtown
Always a favorite
Food and service is always wonderful. Just a note that your dining experience is always wonderful during the week. The noise level on weekends is absolutely impossible.
Very good local Italian inspired dining.
We recommend Florentino's to everyone. It's an upscale Italian eatery on the main street in Newtown that has been there for many years. They have about 40 seats. It's not overly expensive but is more than your standard pizza place that also serves chicken cacciatorre for $16. We had the veal and shrimp, lobster ravioli, the pasta con gorgonzola, and one of the specials, a scallop dish with some kind of dark noodles. We also had caesar salads (split), and the sauteed calamari. Everything was great as usual. The bill was only $150 with tip (for four) because it is a BYOB. They also serve a great lasagna. If you're making reservations for a weekend, do it by Wednesday!
Always worth the trip. This is an excellent fish-specialist chef.
Excellent food and great service
The food and service was very good but the room is a little tight.
EXCELLENT! Best Italian restaurant in Newtown PA 18940!
Food was delicious! The tables are long , so they seat you next to people you don’t know. Hard to have conversations, when you’re so close. We would go back because of the food
Gave my reservation to the wrong person.. had to wait 20 minutes for another table. Very very tight in there. Small portions for price you’re paying
Wonderful intimate place, our new go to BYOB for Italian food.
Great food and waitress Sonya!!
Food is always great but we don’t frequent the restaurant much on Saturday nights because between the tile floor, glass window without curtains and low ceiling, the noise level is absolutely insane. I am not one that likes a quiet restaurant but unfortunately the noise is so loud it makes it impossible to enjoy the food which is excellent.
Cute little place with pretty good food, seems authentic. Wait staff nice. The desserts looked great but we passed.
Great neighborhood with excellent service. Food is very good.
Loved everything except the fried calamari which was rubbery and undercooked. But the scallops, mussels in red sauce, garlic bread, lobster ravioli, bob’s plate and frutti de mar were all outstanding! I would definitely go back. Restaurant was a little noisy there was a large party there that was celebrating but overall it was really nice and festive.
Good Italian, well crafted
The eggplant parmesan is the best. Next choice is pasta bolognese. Don't forget the whole wheat garlic bread.
We were seated right when we arrived, and served water then garlic bread we ordered. The salads came a few minutes after that. Both of our entrees were served within minutes after finishing our salads. Both were served quite hot. They were exactly what we expected: very, very good. We have been to thius restaurant before; we have our favorites but will try new dishes. I have to say the only complaint I ever have is table size; it's too small for two people.
A local favorite. Family owned and run.
Well prepared meal.
My wife and I had a wonderful dinner at Florentino's on Saturday night. Fortunately, we had a reservation because the restaurant is relatively small, and books up on weekends. My scallop and black pasta entree was fantastic, and my wife's fish entree was perfectly prepared. Great food along with BYOB makes Florentino's one of our favorite restaurants.
Very accommodating. Great fresh food.
Food was excellent! We had a party of four and we all enjoyed out entrees and dessert. The noise level was so high it was hard to carry on a conversation. Part of it is the layout of the restaurant. We would return but only on a less crowded weekday night.
Went here for lunch. Place is small and seating is tight. Service was good & food was good. Don’t think it was a good value for price.
Quint atmosphere and very good food. Everything was fresh and home made. Place is small so definitely need a reservation on busy nights. Can be loud but a very nice little spot.
Our salads were very good. We ordered one with goat cheese & roasted peppers and one with spinach & Gorgonzola. The Corvino entree was delicious and the veal Marsala was very good!
Reliable Spot for very good Italian Food! Small, intimate place, so make a reservation. We've been going here for years and it never disappoints. We just had the mussels appetizer (which was a bit skimpy on the mussels) but very tasty. My wife had the Salmon, I had Veal Medallions with Shrimp in a White Wine Sauce.
It was a very nice evening.
Food was excellent!
