A group of my friends,family and I had a great time and delicious food to celebrate my birthday. We all had various entrees with no complaints. The general consensus was that we would return, since we had delectable food and ample parking.

Great little Italian restaurant. We've eaten here several times and it's always excellent food and service. They have both a front and side patios that are both dog friendly. Tony is our usual server. Ebullient and funny, he provides great service. On Monday nights there is no corkage fee.

I have been up and down Lafayette Circle hundreds of times to eat and shop in this cute area of Lafayette, but never noticed La Finestra hidden away in an office complex towards the end of the street. Tucked in a corner of the complex and surrounded by eucalyptus trees, you would never know it's there if it weren't for... More

Went for a early dinner and were greeted warmly, immediately made to feel welcome. Our service throughout the dinner was excellent without being intrusive. The bread was baked for my friend and me, and was tasty and crusty. I ordered the seafood risotto dish and it was outstanding, my friend ordered Italian meatloaf and it was also very good. A...

This is one of my top five in the San Francisco Bay Area. My wife and I have been dinning here for many years and the quality has been excellent every time we visit. They are now serving brunch and the menu is superb, not the run of the mill in any way. Of course the lunch and dinner menu... More

Beautiful, formal setting and great food and wine selection. We often go here for our anniversary or when friends are in town. Make reservations on weekends. We especially enjoyed our time here with friends last New Year's Eve.

Went here for dinner for my birthday. Have been here before, and it has always been the best. Had the shrimp with cheese ravioli which was delicious, and my husband had the lamb shank which he gets every time we come here and he loved it. There is an extensive wine list and the food choices are great. We highly... More

La Finestra is in an odd location in Lafayette, CA. It is on the ground floor of a nondescript office building at the back of a too small parking lot way off the main street. But you should make the effort to find it. You will be rewarded by an excellent wine list, especially the reds, and well prepared nouveau... More

My wife and I joined seven other friends for a sort of reunion dinner at this quaint comfortable and just a bit out-of-the-way restaurant. Let me explain o-ot-w. Located right in the heart of downtown Lafayette, La Finestra is a couple of blocks off of the main street and is nested in amongst an residential area dominated byu large surrounding... More
