After trying a bunch of restaurants in the north end and very disappointed with the majority of them. One night I discover this place and I was very surprise with it. The food was remarkable and the service was second to none...excellent. I was asking my self why I haven't found this place before, because usually the north end is a tourist trap and it's about volume of customers so you cannot enjoy a talk over a drink or so. But this place is different; excellent atmosphere and they take care of you like no other place in the north end.

Lobster ravioli, zuppa de pesce, duckling, sea bass--all outstanding. As was the vino.

Please extend my compliments to your Chef for the Saturday lunch service on 3/19/2011. I can't remember the last time I had a meal this good! No kidding! Grilled to perfection, salmon & asparagus with a creamy vegetable risotto, this dish hit the spot. My friend had penne pasta & eggplant in a spicy tomato sauce, topped with shaved parmesan. But wait, there’s more. can’t forget about the fried calamari appetizer! YUMMY! Today’s meal was absolutely superb, classic Italian cuisine. I HIGHLY recommend the Florentine Cafe for amazingly affordable, quality authentic Italian food. Definitely make this a stop your next visit to Boston’s North End. 5 thumbs up from me!

The critics and Phantom Gourmet may rate this restaurant well below others, but, take in this review from a regular person with a love of food. As soon as you sit down, and indulge in the fresh cut bread and infused olive oil, you will be hooked. My meal began witrh a perfect carpaccio and perfectly prepared asparagus. I followed with lobster ravioli, and since this is Boston, many other restaurants may claim to have the best lobster ravioli, but I've been to many high-end establishments throughout the city, and this lobster ravioli, with a beautiful tomato cream lobster chunk sauce cannot be beat. Finishing with the tiramisu was a charm, as it too, no surprise, was perfect. Ladies and gentlemen, skip Top of the Hub, Taranta, and everywhere else with overrated reviews. If you are looking for exceptional food, seriously, do yourselves a favor and vistit Florentine Cafe, a Boston's North End gem.
