Plain-o Italian Food

We arrived at a good time, around 6:15 on a Tuesday evening. After that, the room was packed. I guess people love the fact that it's BYOB and it's about 85 degrees inside. We told the pompous looking guy walking around in a white chef's coat that it was hot and he explained to us that he's... read more

We recently dined at Finos and were pleasantly surprised. The restaurant is small and casual and has a nice selection of classic Italian favorites. Our server, Jesse, was excellent and we were delighted with the quality of the food! I ordered the Bosco Salad for $4.99 and received a beautifully prepared gourmet salad I would have expected to pay double... More

Outstanding Italian food! Probably some of the best I have had outside of Italy and New York. That's the best part......Don't expect fast service. A little slow.......So bring your favorite bottle or two of wine and enjoy the great food.

The food, service, and staff were excellent. Reservations are a must. They are expanding the restaurant which should greatly help. Be sure to BYOB.

Not sure what others were whining about, but our dinners were excellent! I loved my chicken caccitore and my wife's sausage rigatoni (with marinara sauce) was also delicious. Def'n do over, especially the chance to drink a great wine of our own choosing and have great service to boot. Cobra427sc.

My husband and I ate at Fino’s Italian Restaurant on a Friday evening (a week or so ago). The service was really bad. We had three people serving in one way or another that evening so I’m going to give each one a name. I'm calling our primary server Basil since he seemed insincere and somewhat pompous. I am calling... More

Just got back from Venice, and none of my meals there were better than what you get at Fino's! Alfredo does a fantastic job bringing great Italian food to the local area...You gunna need reservations on most nights...This alone tells the locals love the food. Great Value....Great Food!

The food was good; the staff was very pleasant, but the service...well, I think they would benefit from some organization and additional wait staff. Even with reservations, we waited almost 30 minutes to be seated. The waiter came around quickly and opened our wine, which certainly made the wait less annoying. However, we did not see him again for at... More

We would give this place a 5 star review if the seating system were improved. When the small restaurant is crowded, as it ofter is, getting seated is chaotic at best...even if you have a reservation. In the warmer months there is an outdoor seating area, but in the colder months parties awaiting their table huddle near the front door... More
