There’s nothing wrong with the normal Italian place. Nothing. Alfredo sauce is always enhanced with “Fly Me to the Moon.”

But sometimes you want an Italian spot that looks like a church, feels like a ski lodge and serves up a 22-ounce porterhouse.

And after your inevitable turkey bender, there will be one waiting for you.

Allow us to introduce La Fiorentina, a cozy, woody, Tuscany-style steakhouse in Knox/Henderson, slated to open soon after Thanksgiving.

With wood-paneled walls and high ceilings, this feels like a cozy Vail ski lodge that was renovated for Tony Soprano’s steak night.

You’ll want to arrive with a date who doesn’t mind feeling like an Italian snow bunny, head toward what looks like a brown church from Little House on the Prairie (plus a brick patio and small fountain) and enter a tall room decked with wood floors, a large cream chandelier and an open kitchen (feel free to go with the Michael Landon hairdo).

Start with a Tuscan bean soup (it’s been blessed with garlic), handcrafted tagliolini pasta and family-style mashed potatoes. Then, order a bottle of the California cabernet to go with the 14-ounce rib eye or the mighty Fiorentina, a massive 22-ounce porterhouse.

Because 23 ounces would be ridiculous.
