Fiorella’s Restaurant Review

: You might imagine that you are in the middle of nowhere as you drive to Las Palmeras by Hilton Grand Vacations --- but you’re only a street away from the convention center and bustling International Drive. The hotel is a quiet oasis for business travelers who prefer a little distance from the congestion of Orlando’s tourist center, and stylish Fiorella’s is a comfortable spot for dining without leaving the hotel. For dinner, menu selections may range from a grilled Caesar to fettuccine with chicken and Alfredo sauce, and filet mignon to Tuscan salmon. Consider a brick-oven pizza, like the margherita or spicy sausage. The solid wine list includes old-world selections from Italy and new-world tastes from California, Australia and emerging wine regions, most offered by the glass. Vibrant blown-glass art decorates the honey-toned walls, and arched ceilings and acacia wood tabletops create a warm, friendly ambience. On perfect Florida days, request a table on the adjoining covered patio.
