Firenze by Night Restaurant Review

: Firenze by Night has been a neighborhood favorite since Sergio Giusti brought authentic cuisine from his native Tuscany nearly 20 years ago. When you step inside, there is a warm, traditional feel to the place. The ceiling is adorned with grape leaves and twinkling white lights, a photograph of Florence serves as wallpaper, and a statue of David, his private parts tastefully hidden behind the Italian flag, watches over you from the far corner of the dining room. House specialties include pappardelle Toscana, boasting large ribbons of al dente noodles in a rich rabbit sauce that manages to be rich but not heavy; and gnocchi Firenze---light-as-air, handmade potato and pasta pillows tossed in a silky tomato cream sauce that is as good as any you will find outside of Florence. Also terrific is the bistecca alla Fiorentina, a plate-filling porterhouse marinated in olive oil and herbs and broiled to your liking.
