First, the only thing I am reviewing is the "Classico Pizzeta". I am not sure how everything else is but the pizza was very disappointing. Pizza is one of our favorites things and we have had great pizza in many places ( see our review of Englewood Flatbread). For $15 this was really a joke. There was no real flavor,... More

We ate there twice in one day by happenstance. The first for lunch where we had three entrees, each very good, including the pizza and a vegetarian dish. The service was reasonably paced and very friendly. Friends made a dinner reservation there and we joined. There were 8 of us and the service lacked quite a bit - the entrees... More

Except for my salmon sandwich arriving very raw in the middle, the food was wonderful and the service was good. I sent the sandwich back- and it took another 20 minutes for it to be re-served to me- but once it was cooked it was delicious. My side salad was served to me while I waited for my sandwich. It...

August 18, 2014. First, let me say, I am a member of the "Chaine des Rotisseurs" (founded in the year 1248) -'Chevalier de la Chaine' ; also member of the "International Food and Beverage Forum" and 'Wold Gourmet Club'; therefore I believe I have some knowledge of good food. Tonight I had the worse dinning experience I can recall in... More

The food is excellent and it is one of the highest quality places close to campus, but lacks peers in it's price range. It's a popular lunch place to take visitors when the tab is on the university. I enjoyed their rabbit pasta, a pizza, and a fried oyster salad here on different occasions. They also have a shockingly good... More

good wines, good craft beers, good homemade everything - woodfire pizza simple, tasty, quality ingredients, reasonable price. Dinners can be pricey, but quality is excellent - a 'date night' place for clean and pleasant meal rather than the many bar burger options in town. And clean matters to me. There are a couple of traditional older restaurants nearby with pretty... More

When in town, this is one of our favorite lunch spots. High quality, fresh ingredients- most locally sourced and organic. Wonderful salads, pastas, fish, pizzas, homemade soups, and burgers. Friendly service. Yes, the prices are a bit high, but the quality ingredients, thoughtful preparation, and wonderful flavors make it well worth it in my opinion.

I've been to Finch's several times. The food and service has always been excellent, and this time was no exception. Portions vary considerably among dishes, but most are generous. The food is positioned toward the gourmet end of the spectrum without being silly -- thoughtful sauces that are flavorful without being overwhelming. There are always fish and vegetarian dishes, although... More

An extensive beer and winelist, interesting and unusual menu items. The food preparation was very good but the prices are fairly high for this town and the servings often leave you a little hungry.

As we walked down the street all the restaurants were packed, so we were glad we had made reservations ahead of time at Finch's. However, we were surprised to find Finch's almost empty. It was a busy IU weekend, so Finch's had a "special" menu which consisted of only six entree choices ranging in price from $28 to $32. We... More
