The atmosphere was really nice. We sat on the 3rd floor and had nice view of the ocean. The service was great from both the bus and wait staff. Our waitress, Erica, was very good at her job. The restaurant was busy but we never felt rushed.

The food was very good. I had the seafood di mare. The linguine was perfectly cooked, not smothered in sauce, with just the right amount of garlic. The mussels were particularly good as they were nice and plump. My wife had the Shrimp fra Diablo. The pasta was superb as was The sauce.

Will definitely go back.

This place is a gem. The food, service, presentation, ambiance, etc. are beyond reproach. Although I hate to have more people discover this lovely restaurant, I must recommend it to help out whomever the owner is. Just try it. I guarantee you will love everything about it. Bring your own bottle.

This was the second time we’ve had dinner there. The food and service was great. The noise level wasn’t too bad this time but previously it was noisy. I would have given the food 5 stars, however, one of the entrees, chicken parmigiana, was overdone. I enjoyed the ocean view too! We’ll be back!

What a wonderful evening we had this evening at La Finestra. We had two salads: one special of the evening and the other the arugula salad, both delicious. The we had the rigatoni con gamberi, absolutely delicious, and a pappardelle with short rib ragu, also fantastic. Love that it is byob, and that they play Sinatra and others of that time period. The service and ambiance along with the excellent food and view of the ocean make this true fine dining at the Jersey Shore. The price is reflective of the quality and experience and it is fairer than many other high end restaurants we’ve tried from AC to Cape May. To top it all off, they treated me to a rose and both of us to Limoncellos at the end of our meal. We will certainly return!
