Cafe Florentine- the good? the bad? the ugly?

Hey everyone

I did a board search for Cafe Florentine and it came up surprisingly shy of any real information- at least that I can find. So I have to ask-what is the deal with Cafe Florentine? Im headed there for a birthday dinner on Friday- any suggestions? Is it good? Ho Hum? Over priced? Awful?
Just looking to prepare myself correctly!

Thanks in advance!

    Fun bar to meet neighborhood friends if you live in the North End. OR - OK place to grab a bite to eat if you are in the North End and there is no other table available. The food is adequate if nothing special. Service is OK to bad - attitudes prevail. I used to love the place because it was a block from my house and met my friends there regularly. But food and service were not the reasons we went. Food is OK, though. You will find something worth while.
