Restaurant RIP: Florentine

Mike Thomas

Franklinton landmark Florentine closed in 2016 after 71 years in business. The pain of this loss was only magnified by the fact that the closure came just two days before Christmas of that year.


This old-world Italian eatery was operated by the same family for three generations, and enjoyed by countless diners throughout the years. If you can’t stand the craving for the flavors you remember, there’s good news: Florentine’s signature sauces are still available at certain farmer’s markets around town. Check out the Florentine Legacy Facebook page for updates from this iconic local brand.
