After visiting Finocchio’s Italian Ristorante for several times I wanted to share our experience with anyone looking for good Italian food south of the boarder. After moving South several years ago from the New Jersey/New York area finding a good Italian restaurant was a chore until friends introduced us to Finocchio’s. The menu which offers appetizers, soup, salad, pasta, chicken,... More

Not the typical group, 8 adults. Service was a little slow and he had to make repeated trips to the kitchen to see about special appetizer and one of the meals. Later a second waitress helped and she knew her stuff and was more customer friendly. Good atmosphere and too dark for our taste but still good. Excellent food with... More

We tried to eat at this little hole in the wall restaurant because it had good reviews. Unfortunately we were turned away at the door because we didn't have reservations. The server that met us at the door was actually quite snooty to us. Don't think I'll even attempt it again.

This is our third consecutive year eating at this establishment. The service was great. The food was excellent. it is the sort of place we reserve for special occasions. They will modify any of the menu options to suite your taste. We were told that if we wanted something we did not see on the menu we only had to... More

Great little restaurant nestled in a small strip mall off Business 17 in Garden City. We had Veal Osso Bucco and a white clam sauce which were both very good. Nice portions and very friendly service makes this one of our favorites among the many great restaurants in the area. Prices are very reasonable and place fills up on weekends... More

Finding good Italian in the South is not easy. This was excellent. We all had different entrees, from Veal to shrimp, to Bolinase. Everything was terrific. The service was also wonderful. Whenever we are in Myrtle Beach, we dine here. Never disappointed.

By far the best Italian in the area, maybe the state. I had chicken parm, girlfriend had eggplant parm. She said it was great, she is picky and Italian. My meal was also great. Great service also.

Our server recommended the fresh grouper. It was so light & fresh we were all 3 so happy we ordered it. I have had a lot of seafood along the East coast but this was the best fish dish I've tasted.
