My wife and I recently dined at Finocchio's and were very pleasantly surprised. It is a relatively small restaurant in a strip mall - kind of unassuming on the outside, but a real gem providing a great dining experience. My wife ordered Veal Piccata (not...More

A very nice place with good food, but the wait is too long and having only twio waiters and no bartender makes the service very slow. They were also low on choices due to lack of food in the kitchen. Could be a great place...More

I am not a fan of overpriced mediocre seafood with a view. I much prefer excellent food in a quiet setting with phenomenal service and food. That's what you get here. It's in a little building in a small strip mall, but who cares when...More

Great tip! That's a dish on my "secret menu" it's pricey but it actually our signature dish. If you have a large group and want to order multiple stuffed chops call ahead. It's an amazing dish but it's done to order individually by me personally...More

Italian food that is cooked like mama wants you to eat it, small but attentive staff, always there when you need something. Food and wine are recommended and does not seem that busy, it should be . Come hungry

I have not been there in a few years, and know there is a new owner/chef. When I was last there I had a Veal Chop (huge) that was out of this world. I did not see what I remember it was on the current menu- perhaps they still have it as a special?? Going to MB soon, and will surely go to this restaurant.
