Fiorentina Opens in Lake Worth
Chef-proprietor of the regional Italian eatery is Joshua Santangelo, former general manager of Prime 707, which occupied the same space prior to Ouzo Blue. The vibe and décor are a lot different from Ouzo's dance-on-the-tables, party-till-your-feet-fall-off ambiance. There's a row of posh banquettes, a trio of cylindrical red chandeliers, and a buffed-up bar.
The menu roams all over Italy, with such culinary stalwarts as grilled pizza, bistecca Fiorentina, and linguine con vongole alongside less-ubiquitous offerings like caprese salad with Pugliese burrata, spiedini alla Romana, and the house signature rigatoni Bucaiola.
Prices are reasonable too, with most appetizers $10 and under, all pastas under $15, and entrées topping out at $25.
