Small(seats 36ish), intimate place down a side street. Wonderfully prepared, homemade food. Started off with the crostini appetizer. Four slices of Italian bread each with a different topping. Excellent. My wife was looking for a simple yet flavorful Italian pasta dish and found it with the eggplant rigatoni. Excellent sauce. I enjoyed the shrimp risotto. Fresh veggies and basil finely chopped served with a healthy amount of shrimp.

Here in Salem, a town with many Italian restaurants, you'll find Firenze, where there are no TV's but just excellent food prepared in the traditional Italian way. ( Having been to Florence, I'm always excited about eating here. Menu is small but diverse, and the service is outstanding. Highly recommended!

This restaurant has been in business maybe six years. The owners are on premises - Andy who greets and seats you and Zamir (sp?), who is back doing the cooking. The menu is simple yet elegant. My vegetarian / piscatarian wife can always find an esquisite meal. The owners learned their trade in Florence. Every friend we've taken there has gone back again and again. The desserts are to die for. All this and the prices are very reasonable. Cannot say enough to describe how great this place is. Our favorite restaurant on the North Shore. Warning - they do not take reservations, so we try to get there around six. Not open during the day nor on Sunday. Seats maybe 30.

Just down the street from us, this is the classic neighborhood trattoria that we return to regularly. The owners and much of the staff are European, and provide that elusive continental mix of non-stuffy formality and charm. The food is neither simple nor pretentious, and the menu changes, so not boring either. We see our neighbors there.
