"I've been to The Florentine a few times. Always good service, food is above average and there is a good busy vibe to the place. It gets crowded. I've only been here for lunch, but I've tried about 10 different items and they are all good. Just had the Black Bass yesterday and it was a winner. Service was very good. Only downside was a 15 minute wait when I had a booked reservation, but not a big deal. Plenty of space to hang out and wait. If you are in the loop and want a good lunch for business or fun, this is a solid choice. Not the cheapest joint in the loop though, so keep that in mine."

"The Smokey Mt. Rye was a phenomenal drink. The food was good--didn't knock my socks off, but decent. I liked the ravioli but the Gnudi was sort of meh.
The tiramisu is to die for, though. That did knock my socks off."

"The Florentine is great for business lunches. The clients and prospects I've brought in have loved the pasta and salad dishes, and there isn't one thing I've ever ordered and didn't like. The service is on par, and the overall experience is great. The lunchtime crowd is noisy so request the backroom if you or a guest is hard of hearing or need to have a more serious conversation."
