What a great place to eat! This is a neighborhood restaurant. Food was delicious. Service was great. The ambiance was even better. Top in DC.

The food is great. The wait staff is perfect (bartender wasn't friendly though). The place looks like it is in desperate need of renovations. Saw a rat run into the basement bar which is where the kitchen is.

If the executive chef, Chad, could clone himself, we would all be eating like kings. This place rocks my taste buds. Dito is a wonderful bartender, and they have a great wine selection, but the food here is not to be missed. If you're on a budget, come on a Wednesday or Sunday when they have half-priced bottles of wine.

A bartender recommended this place. Sort of reminded me of a house in New Orleans. The food was good, the prices fair, and our waiter was wonderful. Centrally located, I would definitely go back next time I'm in town.

I searched for romantic Italian restaurants in DC and found Florina. We could not have been more pleased. Made reservation the morning of and had great outdoor dining experience. The service was suburb. We had the calamari, beet salad, seafood risotto and shrimp on black noodles. Great wine list to boot. Will definitely be back.

Great outdoor seating; 1/2 price wine 2 nights; changing menu, but lots of salads and pasta dishes. When they have 1/2 chicken, ribs, fresh fish, order those. Interesting dipping sauce with bread.

Floriana rarely fails to deliver a solid dining experience. It's a neighborhood favorite rather than a fine dining experience, and is unpretentious and friendly.

We met friends from out of town who were staying nearby for our first visit to Floriana. We all agreed that it definitely won't be our last! All dishes - from the spicy calamari appetizer to our entrees - were perfectly prepared. Between the four of us we had the Gnocchi, the Scottish Salmon, the Sea Scallops, and the Pork... More

I will make this one quick because there's not as much to say: - What's good: location and good outside space. They also have a decent wine selection and half price wine on Tuesday. - Average: service. No complains, but not necessarily impressive. - The bad: food. I have given this place several tries, but the food does not deliver.... More

This restaurant had been recommended by staff at another restaurant. Very nice atmosphere and courteous wait staff. We were expecting a great meal after we had been served the delicious apps that three of us shared (myself, wife, daughter). Then things plunged. When we ordered we very specifically specified how the different entries should be cooked. Rare to medium rare.... More
