Bistecca Fiorentina is one of those Italian restaurants on Restaurant Row that looks like it’s been around forever. Actually, it has only been around since 2004, which makes it a youngster by the standards of that neighborhood. I selected it for an uncomplicated family meal before an evening at the theater.
Crostini; Tomato and goat cheese salad
Italian waiters well schooled in the “Little Italy” style delivered competent service in an attractive “white table cloth” space. Perhaps it was not the best idea to visit a restaurant named for steak, and not order a steak. But that’s what we did. The food was fine all around, but basically indistinguishable from what is available at a hundred other Italian restaurants.
