    We had a lovely, quiet dinner. I started with an appetizer special, calamari in a yummy lemon/butter sauce, followed by the ravioli and prawns. My husband enjoyed the mushroom soup followed by the veal. We shared a tiramisu and a couple of espressos. The piano man, Bob, played a couple of requested songs. Delightful. Our server Nemo, was very professional and didn’t rush us. We are the ultimate slow eaters!

    We came here on a weekday after Valentine’s Day and so glad we did. First, corkage charge is unbeatable!! The focaccia was light and the bread dip was very good. We had appetizers of the mushroom soup which was divinely indulgent and the salad which had a nice addition of raisins to counter the acidity of the balsamic vinegar. We both had the same prosciutto pasta dish but my request for long noodles was happily accepted. (I may have created a new dish). The server was attentive at the right times and it was entertaining watching him serve the other tables with the same attentiveness. After coffee and gelato, we were served a complimentary apéritif of homemade biscotti and Marsala wine. It was an indulgent evening that we are looking forward to repeating in the very near future.

    Their website menu is not the same as what we get in the restaurant. Some choices are different, and the prices are really different. Waiters are old times Italians - reminds me of the older places in North Beach. Almost gruff and disinterested. Food was so-so and didn't come with what was listed as sides in the menu. Where's the asparagus?! Mostly over seasoned. Salads were good, thanks to a fine balsamic vinaigrette. That "8 oz pour" for wine must be metric measure - maybe 5, if you ignore evaporation. Hmm ... thinking I was overly generous with the stars.

    it was Valentines day and overall they did a great job. It will a little noisy but that is expected when the place is full plus they had a piano player which added to the noise level. I would recommend this place..the entrees were great, the desert was excellent and I would highly recommend their capuccino!

    Everyone was very welcoming. The food was a bit bland, almost like Lombardy or Swiss style. Room was very noisy. Wine list was unexciting. It was just OK, nothing special.

    Waited more than an hour between courses, the food finally came out burnt, over cooked, cold and poorly seasoned. Shame I’ve been here before and had a much better experience, maybe it was just a bad day.

    Moraga is fortunate to have a first-class, white tablecloth restaurant tucked away in the strip mall near the Safeway. La Finestra was a long-time favorite in Lafayette until a fire damaged the building it was in, so the owner, Jeff, relocated his operation to Moraga, where his restaurant has become popular with parents visiting their children attending St. Mary's College, which is just a few minute's drive away. Jeff and his head waiter Tony are warm and welcoming to all visitors. The foot is very good.

    We sat outside. It was a beautiful evening. Weather was perfect for eating outdoors. The service was excellent. Our server was very friendly. It took us a while to decide what we wanted and he was kind and patient with us. The menu gives many choices and there were also specials. Two of us didn’t want much salt in our dish and he made sure we had exactly as we wished. Our husband ms split a Caesar salad. We all had pasta dishes and they were delicious. We’ll return soon.

    LaFinestra is our favorite go to restaurant. Their menu appeals to everyone…our favorite is their Petrole sole. It has a delicious sauce and is cooked to perfection. This is a charming friendly place that makes you feel like family. Located in the Moraga shopping center which has loads of FREE parking and the very best service.
