Good Italian food, large menu - great service! Local place - obviously a favorite of the neighborhood as everyone seems to know the staff. We went early as we had read it fills up quick. This restaurant is BYOB.

Smaller personal setting place with an indoor and an added on outdoor (enclosed) room. Lots of different dishes, looking around they all looked great. We had spaghetti with meat sauce (really good and well made) and Gamberi La Casa (a little spicy as described and the sauce had some great fish flavor from the shrimp, another winner). Paired these with a Vino Nobile Di Montepuliciano, and worked well together. Also had the Portobello con Shrimp (2 big Portobellos with 2 shrimp in a balsamic reduction (well made and tasty). Cannoli' are good as well. Would definitely go back to try other thing on the menu.

For all you east coast ex-pats craving "New York Italian" or native Texans looking for great pasta, Fino's fits the bill. BYOB makes a great meal a great deal. The atmosphere is simple yet charming and the fresh pasta with classic sauce simple yet sublime.

I almost hesitated to write a review about this place because you know how it is - a place gets really popular and then it's hard to get in there to eat! But their food is so great, I just couldn't resist singing their praises!

In 2012 my husband and I traveled to Rome and Florence and swore that American Italian food would be ruined for us forever. But then we found Fino's and we felt like we had a little slice of Italy right here in Texas.

If you're going for ambiance, you will be disappointed. Fino's is located in a little strip mall and the décor s very forgettable. Worth noting, they have recently added an enclosed/temperature controlled seating area outside to handing the increasing number of people going there to dine.

Contrary to the décor, the food is not forgettable. We typically get the calamari as an appetizer and it is cooked perfectly (not gummy or rubbery) and the breading had a great flavor. The bread they bring you is warm and fluffy and it's very difficult not to fill up on bread because it's so good. Their lobster ravioli is delicious and anything with a vodka sauce is wonderful. All their pasta is cooked perfectly and the flavors are very fresh. My absolute favorite is their rigatoni la vodka - the spicy sausage adds just enough heat and the vodka sauce is flavorful.

This restaurant is BYOB and the prices are very very reasonable. It is packed any time we go (even on week nights) so we often make this an early dinner to beat the crowds. It's common to see the owner walking around and chatting with the tables, much like we saw in Italy (he is from Italy as well).

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 for! The bread and yummy olive oil concoction is the best I have had locally, and we enjoyed the Chicken Sorrentina with eggplant and Rigatoni All Vodka. Portions are large enough to split if you are not a big eater too;-) I believe most entrees were between $13 and $18. Finos puts the Shops of Legacy's Niccola's to shame! Best of all, the restaurant is BYOB so you don't feel like you are getting gouged for your favorite wine.
