Excellent Italian restaurant south of Myrtle Beach, John the chef is from New York, and knows his stuff. Stuffed banana peppers, grouper, eggplant and veal all are excellent choices. Cant wait to go there again!

I can't say enough good things about Finnochio's! My boyfriend and I work in food service, so it's difficult to have an experience that leaves us both speechless in regards to food, service, and atmosphere. After leaving Finnochio's, we had no complaints, just plans to visit again (and we don't even live here)! Finnochio's offers a beautiful fine dining environment... More

This place is absolutely awesome. The service was the best that I've ever had in any restaurant that I've ever been to. The food was delicious and we all enjoyed the delicious wine! We had other plans to go to another restaurant tonight but we changed our minds after eating there and we are going back again tonight. They went... More

I'm 40 years old and have NEVER experienced what I experienced tonight at this most amazing restaurant!! Not only was the food the most extraordinary I've ever eaten but the service we received (not only from the waitress but also from the owner/chef) was the absolute best service we've ever had!! That's not only coming from me, but also from... More

Best food ever. Pleasantly surprised and delicious. Don't let the outside surprise you. Don't like the plastic plants. Bread and food was amazing. Authentic Italian cuisine and good prices. Spaghetti carbonara and other pastas were excellent .

The olive tapenade app was delicious. The Tribeca Bread was out of sight too. So much better than other Italian spots. Chicken Piccatta and Papparedelle with sausage was scrumptious. Service was good to, very open and friendly. Not a great wine list tho, best on the list is the Mazzi Campoforine, but reasonably priced food and wine compared to Chicago... More

Happy Hour is from 4:30-6:30 and they give BIG glasses of wine for $3.00. They offer specials every night selected by the chef owner, Steve. It... More

Don't miss this gem of a restaurant. Have been there many times. There is a new owner and the food and service were spectacular. Don't miss the Italian Shrimp and grits. Love this place.
