One of the best places we had dinner in Washington. You can seat outside as well, better to reserve for outside seating. It is a house turned in a restaurant adding to the charm of the place. The food was fantastic. The pasta is home made. The calamari was excellent.

Thank Hossein T

My date made a reservation for what we thought was a Saturday evening...well we showed up, and guess what? The reservation was for Sunday! And FLoriana's was packed! Still, the maitre d' was very kind and offered us outdoor seating...we were so grateful! And it was the perfect night to dine al fresco! We had Luis the waiter and he guided us through the menu. I had the lamb gnocchi and my date had the everything pasta plate...and it did have everything! I started with mussels and was very pleased with the taste and presentation. He had the calamari with citrus...who knew a bit of grapefruit would make a grilled calamari even better? Excellent wine, excellent bread...a very fun and knowledgeable waiter...perfect dinner. Very romantic restaurant!

Very enjoyable Italian restaurant. Upstairs dining room is small, but the tables aren't jammed so closely together that you're uncomfortable. They do have a nice outside dining area, but we chose to eat inside based on the weather.
Our meal was very good, service was excellent and I'd return, Restaurant Week or not, as the regular prices were reasonable for location and value.
The Lamb Gnocchii was delicous as was the Eggplant Agnolotti and the Lobster Taglierini.

Recently came here with some friends after a conference and from the moment I walked in, I was in love with the place. It feels like you are having dinner with family and friends as it is in a townhouse style building. I had the lobster taglierini and it was some of the best pasta I have ever had. It is definitely a wonderful place for a special occasion, and I hope to return there on my next trip to DC.
