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!!!!

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.

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.

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…

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!

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!
