“Very good Italian, get your steak elsewhere.”
Reviewed August 8, 2013 via mobile

My wife had the veal Parmesan; best green beans ever. Better than other restaurants in area, very old world atmosphere. Save your steak cravings for another day.

“Hidden gem”
Reviewed August 2, 2013 via mobile

Absolutely fabulous. A restaurant that is bigger than its city. If you visit one spot in this town, this should be it.

“Finelli's is a brilliant hidden gem!!!”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

I can't describe how WONDERFUL Finelli's is without writing a book...everything is amazing! In quoting my husband, it is a restaurant bigger than its city. Wonderful hospitality from family and staff, amazing drinks, food, and desserts. Dining at Finelli's is like a trip to Italy a few minutes from home.

“food to die for”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

finelli,s in altoona pa truly is a 5 star restaurant, with food to die for, its a family run restaurant, where you are welcomed and maked to feel at home from the outset, with 1st class waitress who inform you fully of the menu, and answer any question you have in a polite and fully informative manner, and always with a welcoming smile, the range of food the chef can put in front of you is both imaginative and vast, i found every time i eat there the owners mr & mrs finelli make,d an effort to ensure you where happy and felt at home in their restaurant, with out doubt an excellent fine dinning non expensive experience
