Enjoy great taste and savings during the 2018 Baltimore County Restaurant Week, January 19 through February 3.  Ristorante Firenze is offering 3-course lunch ($15) and dinner ($35) menus, featuring favorites like the Wedge Salad, Petite Lamb Chops, and Peanut Butter Chocolate Torte.  Take advantage of this break in the frigid winter weather and let Firenze do the cooking.  Pair with a wine from our extensive wine list featuring gems from Italy and California.

Wine Palate Training

Ever take a sip of wine, and know you recognize a flavor but cannot readily name it?  Want to take the guesswork out of choosing wines that suit your own unique palate? Up your wine IQ by training your palate to identify the major flavor components of wine.  This simple and enlightening tasting drill from our friends at the Wine Folly blog test will help you to hone in on your own personal preferences.  We have featured the award-winning Wine Folly blog in our own entries in the past, and recommend anyone interested in wine to read the blog and subscribe to their emails.

Anyone interested in setting up this exercise at the restaurant? Let me know by email ( and if enough people want this we would be happy to do it.

Amaro Amore

One of the great Italian dining traditions is to end a meal with a digestivo, often an Amaro served neat and sipped to settle the stomach after a big meal.  Many of these were originally formulated and dispensed by pharmacists and are believed to have medicinal powers.

Ristorante Firenze just expanded our Amaro selection with the addition of four concoctions that have been around for centuries.  Cynar (based on the artichoke), Averna (from Sicily), Braulio (from the Alpine region), and Ramazzotti (from Milano).  Enjoy a glass, or sample a flight of 3, and end your meal like a true Italiano!

Lights! Camera! Action!

Coming to the “small screen” this September: the first Ristorante Firenze TV commercial.

We had a great time filming with Rachel from ReelMedia, and are very pleased with the finished product.  It will run in selected markets starting in Sept 2017.  Take a sneak peak HERE.

Insider’s info: the old film sequences were actually shot by Brian in the 70’s using his super-8 camera.  Casa di Pasta in Little Italy still makes the highest quality pasta in town in that very same kitchen.  Stop by and ask to see Uncle Frank.
