Firenze Ristorante Italiano
Restaurant owner Salvatore Lembo enjoys greeting his guests as soon as they walk in the door. As the night wears on, he might drop by their table to chat and ask how they like the homemade gnocchi or recommend a selection from the wine list, which includes dozens of bottles from Tuscany, Sicilia, and California. Meanwhile, the aroma of fresh basil and tomato sauce fills the dining room along with the sounds of Italian opera music. The singers’ soaring voices combined with the flickering candlelight, terra-cotta floors, and starched linens set the stage for romantic evenings between couples or a golfer and his favorite sand wedge.
