3 of us went to Finocchio's. It has been many year since our first visit. This will be our last. We all ordered off of the main menu. While there were many specials (appys and entrees), no price was ever mentioned. While that isn't necessarily a deal breaker, it's nice to know as you review the entire offerings. Anyway, I... More

As chef and owner I apologize it's very hard finding professional good servers as far as the rest of the menu I have not changed prices... More

While the food was good (not great) I will never return. I ordered a veal chop from the menu (not the special); menu price was $24.95. When the hand-written check came, the price was $28.95, and we could see that it had been written over. We questioned the server who told us that the price varies depending on the size... More

I apologize I always tell my servers to tell the customers the price change on veal chops before they order can't be helped because prices change all the time at the market chef and owner John Finocchio. I have not changed any other prices on my menu in years. More

I'm Italian, and love Italian food. This place impresses me. John obviously takes great care preparing his dishes. And don't let its location deceive you. My wife and I had a great meal, and experience there. Our waitress Patrice was extremely helpful, and was great.

Authentic Italian food hidden in a little strip plaza. Behind those store front doors is a trip to Tuscany! Delicious chicken parmigiana, chicken Marsala, fresh bread, wonderful wine and pasta that served my memory of my Italian grandmas! Worth every average penny! Not overpriced what so ever!

We have seen this tiny restaurant tucked at the end of a small strip mall, almost as if it's hiding, for several years now, and we decided to give it a try. WOW! It was great.

We found this place by driving by. Don't let the outside fool you: inside is a white tablecloth authentic Italian restaurant. The food is so well prepared and Kathy was excellent. We will be back.

We had dinner with some friends...very disappointed. We had pollo scarpariello: practically the balsamic vinegar was the only taste you felt: acid, strong, way over the flavor of chicken and sausage; and a piccata sole: funky smell, with no fish and classic lemon butter sauce flavor. The espresso coffee was long, diluted "washed" away. Sorry, not a nice dinner place... More
