My dentice livornese ($23) was a hit, however — a tender baked snapper served on a bed of tasty escarole and beans. I let Gil have at it, saving room for dessert — a hearty helping of house-made Italian-style ricotta cheesecake. Each lemon-infused bite, at once fluffy and dense, is cradled in a crust so rich it screams cardio for weeks.

Gil, still craving meat, ordered his version of "dessert," a scottadita ($13) appetizer — three lollypop lamb chops cooked to melt-in-your-mouth precision atop a viridian-hued mint reduction.

Spaghetti con aragosta includes just a bit of lobster, plus mint, chili, and cherry tomatoes.

This offbeat ending pretty much summed up everything we felt about Fiorentina: Hits among the appetizers make up for the misses on the main courses. In all, Fiorentina has lovely décor and a hip bar scene. I'd suggest settling in with friends or family and sampling those moderately priced small plates that lend themselves to grazing. You'll end up spending less than we did and leave full. And try to snag one of those booths.

Went out of business 2 months ago today. Daren Houghtaling, the owner, ran that place into the ground. Goes to show you just because you have money, doesn't mean you can run a restaurant. Maybe if he didn't sit at the bar every night pounding Michelob Ultras, he might have had a profitable restaurant. What a shame!

Since the area took in a new tenant, it seems it has been more visited then than of 2009 when Prime707 was still up and running. Looks like Florentina has a lot to offer people with their very trendy and tasty cuisine which customers won't mind coming back for more. Let's see what food critics can say about that.

Sounds like a typical Fiorentina night. Since the original chef left in Janurary, things have gone to hell in a hand basket in the place. Only a short while till there will be a new tenant.

All the foods you have mentioned were all sound delicious! Maybe the reason why the first occupant of that place closed is because their marketing strategy is not as good as Fiorentina.

The original Chef is the owner Josh Santangelo. He is obviously still there. The Kitchen Mgr was fired in January. Things have been looking up ever since his departure!
