Food, service, and decor all rock at this little gem in West LA!! My husband and I both loved every bite of our dinners (salad + entree + dessert) and we will be back again soon!

Used to go once a week as they had a great bartender, (looking at you Ms Beth), a good "happy hour" and good dining. Unfortunately, they closed down, Fabio open a place out at the other end of the SFV and whatever was supposed to replace it at this location is still under renovation.

An Italian restaurant, before a Billy Joel concert, with a chef named Fabio. How could I have gone wrong. The duck Bolognese I got from Top Chef finalist Fabio Viviani got the award for best dish of the Cali/Colo trip. Jill’s short rib ravioli was also a highlight. Not super expensive and good Italian fare in Los Angeles is hard... More

Tag service instead of dedicated waiter meant no consistency. Wine list very average and overpriced for the brands/quality of wine. Food OK but no way is this a first class restaurant. Popular, definitely, but I will not return.

The food is excellent as is the desserts. This is a pricey place but has food comparable to the cost. Our service was a bit sketchy and we had to ask for assistance several times throughout the evening for a table of eight. The selections for our group varied from pasta, to fish to steaks and everyone was very happy... More

This is a great place for a quiet business dinner or night out with your honey! You can tell that the chef really cares about the quality of his ingredients. The meal was as good as I have had in any fine dining establishment. The service here is also a cut above. I can't wait to get back and try... More

We went to Firenze Osteria and did the chef's table. All in all, this was average at best. The atmosphere and service were very good. Too bad the food wasn't. Maybe the regular menu is better. This wasn't what we would expect from a top chef caliber meal. We won't go back and would not recommend. There are too many... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant which is about 0.25 miles from our home, but on a street we rarely drive down. We were so glad that we did. Excellent service, inspired menu, perfectly cooked al dente house made pasta, affordable, impressive wine list adn a really nice ambiance. Can't say enough good things about Firenze.

The food was memorable as was the service! The restaurant has a fun yet sophisticated atmosphere! Great for a romantic date night out or for a great lunch anytime!
