I love this place!
The decor with paintings and miniature umbrellas is delightful.
Service staff are excellent, as is food.
For me, close to home - 3 N/S blocks.
I have recommended Finestra to others for years and have increased their business as a result.
My dinner n my wife’s dinner tasted fabulous. I will definitely be coming back after my next HSS dr appointment. The service was great as well.
Food was quite good though a bit expensive. Service was great. They let us sit and enjoy our company without being bothered. Attentive but not cloying.
Celebrating birth of grandchild
The grilled seafood salad was excellent at a moderate price. Service was quick and fruendly
A very good neighborhood gem. If you are visiting any of the local hospitals, this is a very welcome respite.
Was so happy this restaurant was recommended. Close to the hospitals and just the place to sit and contemplate with friends who have ill family members. We will be back!
Great neighborhood Italian fare. Always order their specials.
we call it our local - always a pleasant experience in every way! good food- good service and a lovely evening always. We will keep coming back.
Had a lovely birthday dinner. The food, service and atmosphere was delightful. This is a neighborhood gem and I will be back - often.
It's been several years since my wife and I have been to Finestra and throughout the experience on Thursday, 4 April, we kept asking ourselves 'why?' The waitstaff was quite helpful, the food was excellent, and although filled with lunch guests, the noise level was reasonable.
We are already planning to invite our dearest friends...and will share news with others as well.
Pretty surroundings, quiet ambience, tasty food. Excellent neighborhood choice.
Great little spot with delicious food and excellent service. Would recommend!
Nice evening and good value. Quick, friendly service. We enjoyed our Chicken Marsala and Eggplant Parm.
I always love to come here since I can only eat soup and they always have something for me. It is always delicious. The people with me enjoy the regular menu.
The appetizers were delicious but the main course which was the fish of the day was inedible! It looks like it was cooked earlier and had no taste...The tiramisu was delicious but all in all, it was way too expensive of a dinner for a neighborhood place! Will not be back.
Great food, but the place needs some remodeling. Decor is very dated. (1990's) There is no atmosphere.
Good spot for lunch. There were 6 of us, and they were very accommodating.
Our favorite neighborhood place on the upper east side. Always good food and great service. We’ve been coming here for years and never had a bad experience.
The wait staff is exceptional and extremely friendly. The decor and ambiance was fun and relaxed. There was someone there playing music that was romantic and not overly loud. The food was great, the tiramisu was fantastic!
our favorite local Italian restaurant- when we are in NYC we return there at least once a week. Food is always good - no problem with the service and we like the staff.
Great find - we'll definitely be back! Very convenient to Sotheby's auction.
My boyfriend and I went here following a visit with a family member at Sloan Kettering. The staff was extremely nice. When there was a small issue because my boyfriend got veal instead of chicken (he said “I’ll take the Francese” which the waitress heard as “Veal Francese”) she was very apologetic and they gave us free desert to make up for it. The food was excellent. Definitely going back to this place again!
Met my son for lunch before a doctor appointment. The staff were very accommodating and the food was delicious! I would go back any time.
Even after repeated requests the food, while tasty, was not served hot. The bread needs work. The restaurant is not inexpensive. The staff is very pleasant, but I do not want to spend $150 for two people (two appetizers, two mains, a side of veggies, and three glasses of wine) and have my food lukewarm.
service was very pleasant and prompt . Great!
Very low key Italian restaurant. The food was good and the staff was very attentive. I would definitely go back again.
Lovely atmosphere and wait staff. Solid if unremarkable food.
Basic Italian. Nice dinner with excellent and friendly service. Just the right amount of attention. Not hovering, but never far if we needed something.
Great neighborhood place. Good value and nice portions.
Good food good service.
A little noisy but not a huge problem.
Price comparable for Italian restaurants in the area
I went to Finestra with my father who is in a wheelchair and the restaurant was very accommodating. I included this detail when I made the reservation on Opentable, and a waitress met us outside the restaurant to help us up the ramp and had an easily accessible table waiting for us right inside the front door. And on top of that, the food and service was excellent. We will definitely be back.
Nice surprise, cozy, good food, music on a Friday night
Great food. Great service. Friendly, courteous and professional staff.
I went with my little boy and everyone was so friendly.
Really good meal,... great service, large portions, moderately priced neighborhood gem! Will definitely return.
Wasn’t too pleased with the food. Probably won’t go back, although it was a cute place.
Finestra was very festive and the service extremely friendly. I eat there often and enjoy the variety of dishes. Recommend!
The food is always excellent and the service is fantastic.
Great neighborhood spot.
Excellent food. Professional, courteous and very efficient staff. Loved the experience
Finestra has a Great menu and the food is fresh and delicious. Nothing fancy but very good. Welcoming staff and good service!
