Decent Italian but sauce is very salty. Great service. Owner is from New York. Would have rated it higher if the sauce wasn't so salty in all of our dishes.

I know everybody's taste is different if you request I will cook your meal with very little or no salt at all. I think what happened is you added grated cheese to your dish .I always tell my servers to tell our customers to taste their meal before adding cheese to it.I would have made you another dinner being Chef...

My family has been going to dinner at Finocchio's for 3-4 years now when we are vacationing in Surfside. The Chef there is awesome, our food is always great and we always leave satisfied. The prices are a little higher but well worth it if you have the extra money. It is a fine dining restaurant and we recommend it!!!

Federal Hill is an area of Providence, RI that is well known for its outstanding restaurants, which we have been missing since moving south a year ago - that was until last night when we dined at Finocchio's.

The best Italian food in the area. You won't be disappointed! The waitstaff and bartenders, (Cathy, Steve, Donna) take such good care of you that you'll keep coming back. They treat you like family. If it's not too busy in his kitchen, John, owner/chef, will come out to see that everyone is enjoying his food. Try the stuffed peppers appetizer... More

Hi I wish this would have been brought to my attention because being Chef and owner I take pride in every dish I cook and I would never serve a dish with empty mussel shells I know sometimes they fall out of their shells but would have to be in the sauce.So sorry for the disappointment. Ask for me next... More

Amazing authentic Italian cuisine! I had the Chicken Marsala, best meal I had on my week trip to Garden City. They were able to accommodate 18 of us. Amazing service, food, and atmosphere!
