Ai Fiori

Ai Fiori has officially become one of my top three favorite restaurants of all time. I went back for the third time since February, and it was just as memorable as ever. The Vellutata and Trofie Nero are the two must-order dishes for me and my bf — we are obsessed with them! They are consistently amazing. Great service and fantastic food — that’s what makes me a die hard Ai Fiori fan for life!
