Taverna Fiorentina's authentic cuisine speaks passable English to taste buds of American descent, although its accent is strong enough to convey extreme deliciousness no matter what it's saying. Begin a romantic dinner on the sidewalk patio with an antipasto board for two ($22) before cranking up the Italirator with a pasta dish, such as the orecchiette with Italian sausage and broccoli ($16). Vegetarians can satisfy their green tooth with unmeaty offerings, such as the ravioli gnudi, stuffed with spinach and ricotta cheese, and served with cherry tomatoes and parmigiano cheese ($16). Meanwhile, diners terrified of iron deficiency can sate their savory side with a slab of rib eye topped with caramelized onions and served aside fried polenta and broccoli ($24). Unlike stodgy desert-island chefs, Taverna Fiorentina's chef will be happy to accommodate your dietary needs and restrictions, including gluten-free entree preparation, upon request.
