Five of us celebrated New Year's Eve at La Finestra. Everything was wonderful. The hostess was friendly and helpful. The wait staff was very attentive but not overbearing. Nora was excellent! The burrata app was delish with an incredible sauce. All were very satisfied with the entrees. Thanks for the limoncello!!!!
We had a great dinner there on December 30th. The help was great and the food great also. Our favorite place to go in Sea Isle.
Always a great dining experience. We love it.
The staff was very attentive and the place cozy. The plating was good. The lamb meatballs were tough on the outside, almost like they were encapsulated. I ordered the Langostinos or the grilled Mediterranean prawns at $60 with 4 Langostines cut length wise on a bed of arugula - I don't think it's worth $60. My older son ordered the special of the day, the $44 Wahoo or Hawaiian Butterfish on Risotto - it was just ok. My younger son ordered the $27 La Florentina Pollo which he really liked. My wife had the $32 Capellini Sardinia. We were treated to a complimentary Limoncello as an after dinner drink - that was good, thank you! I like that it's BYOB. I think if we had ordered the traditional Italian dishes it would have been better and better value as well. Would we come back?probably.
Always consistent…..excellent food and service
Outstanding food, from the entree to dessert! Service was also excellent, Ally was very nice and knowledgeable. We will definitely be back!
The ambiance, staff and quality of food is the best of the best!!
We had a very nice dining experience from service to food and ambiance.
As always our meals were served piping hot. DELICIOUS Braised Lamb Shank, Pasta pockets with seafood in white wine sauce, octopus and coconut shrimp. Service was excellent, attentive but not fussy. We had a wonderful dinner and a wonderful time.
Nice date night with my husband. We had a great view of the ocean and the SIC Christmas tree. It was a nice break from our routine places ( bar food) over the bridges of ocnj.
Celebrated a birthday and everyone was very happy. Great food and service.
Dinner was amazing as always and service was wonderful. Cannot say enough about how good it was!
Went to dinner with 3 friends ordered 4 appetizers , 4 entrees, 4 desserts and 4 coffees and 1 club soda, food was fabulous from start to finish and then check was delivered and waitress came back in 3 mins and asked for it back because she forgot to add the club soda, we were all appalled to think that after we indulged at every course she disruptive the payment for $3.00. Left a bad taste in ALL of our mouths…
As always great food, super service and a wonderful view!
La Finestra is an awesome dining experience. Nora was our server and she is always very entertaining.
Ali was great, the special rice ball excellent. i had the flounder special , wonderful, my husband had the veal parm, no so good. homemade tiramisu delicious.

Service , food , ambience were awesome as usual. We have never been disappointed in this restaurant. This may be the best restaurant in all of South Jersey .
Another excellent dinner, fantastic service!!
Allison and Enzo are the best.
Always a great meal and a good time at La Finestra. Lenny (one of the owners) is always there to greet you and make you feel at home. Looking forward to our next meal at La Finestra
The food and service was excellent!
For the middle of November it was really hopping. We had a miscommunication on the app over the seating being indoors or outdoors but they accommodated our request for inside and as always, the meal was on point. The service was lightning quick, our server was exceptional and perfectly explained the nightly specials of which we went with for the soup, salad, the pasta, and the fish, all of which were terrific! We always appreciate how friendly and welcoming everyone is here and that is why on an island full of great dining choices we go here about 75% of the time as it is that good and just as important, consistent in delivering a great experience every time. Bravo to your team!
Always a wonderful meal and great service
As always, dinner, service, ambiance were outstanding. This is one of our favorite "go-to" restaurants. Highly recommend.
First time visiting, recommended by a friend. We were a party of 4 and we all enjoyed our appetizers and entrees, mostly all specials. Service was excellent and friendly. We had a table by the window and were not rushed, so enjoyed pleasant conversation and dessert. Eager to return!
Always a fantastic meal, and fantastic service.
The Service was Excellent! Great atmosphere. The food was delicious, all was cooked perfectly! I would highly recommend having dinner here!
Great service, but underwhelmed with the food for the price. Great polenta appetizer.
Dining experience,food and service
The food and service just gets better with every visit.
Our food was great. The service was excellent - Lucy was fantastic. We had a seat facing the beach at the window so the view was great too.
Nice quiet dinner. Food great as always. Enjoyed seeing the tree up.
Awesome service and food!
Absolutely amazing food and a view that can't be beat, service is always great.
Excellent food and service, as usual. Local Gem!!!
Food was good but took a long time to get our entrees.
We sat on the sidewalk and it was perfect. Service was wonderful (thanks Nora). it was apparently crowded and noisy inside but outside was not noisy and food came out quickly. Good was great
