Italian
For forty five years, this family-run bar and restaurant has been the place for great Italian food in a warm, welcoming establishment. With a fantastic wine list, an intimate & cosy atmosphere prevails in the restaurant, bar and recently transformed alcoves. The menu is Italian, with a great selection of bar food for those on a tight schedule.


Fino's are more than happy to customise menus for your party. The service is very personal as many of the customers have been regulars for years.
The private boardroom can be hired for drinks parties, networking events with canapés. Celebrating Christmas in Fino's is a must for many and is popular for birthday events and small wedding parties.

I had booked a table for myself and five colleagues but we didnt want a main meal. Was welcomed by a lovely member of staff who had previously worked at North Row (apologies for not taking his name) and after explaining situation he very kindly found us a nice snug area at the back of the bar. Was like having our own private dining area. Very friendly and polite staff. Will definitely be returning.

Good restaurant with good food. It has a room at the back which is relatively quiet which is great for conversationalists. A solid 4 stars.

Great evening with great food and presentation. At times a little wait to see waiter. Noise from bar area music a little intrusive at times, but it was overall a great meal enjoyed by all 4 of us.

I've always loved Finos - an "institution" in the heart of Mayfair. However, this time around, there was definitely something lacking. Lack lustre service at first (we sat for 20 mins before anyone came to take a drinks order or offer menus), and then it was clear by the reception we got from the Waiter, there was some tension amongst the ranks!

Finally though, we got our food and wine and it was its usual high-quality.

Not as busy as it used to be for sure......

Service was good and food delicious. My only criticism is that I ordered the vin santo and biscotti and the biscotti was packaged.

Fino's deserves its place as a staple of the Mayfair restaurant scene. It is a fabulous place to visit.

On this occasion 3 of us had two courses each. My prawn cocktail was exactly the 'retro classic' I wanted. My mushroom risotto was good without the intensity and richness to offer a wow factor. My colleagues enjoyed their tricolore salad starters and pasta mains. This was not the exquisite Italian deeply flavoured experience we expected, but was very good nonetheless.

Excellent service, a proper warm Mediterranean welcome and an enjoyable evening. Definitely a place to revisit and I am sure the richness of flavours will be back up to the normal level that have made this family owned restaurant such a fabulous institution

My husband used to come to Fino's regularly about 50 years ago when he worked in the area. Over the years he has visited and still been as impressed. It is good that they have managed to keep going and maintain such a good standard. We intend to visit several times as year!

Service was very poor and inattentive. Waiter was clearing empty tables before looking after tables that had guests seated. Food was good but would not return as service ruined the experience.

The Finos burger was not that juicy as we expected; we claimed that in the end and indicate a refund on that meal, as one our of 4, the waiter explained why the meet must be so well done (due to hygenic reason).... I would say, use more souce if so, or better meat quality. 3 where good our of 4 meals, and my doughter didnt eat the burger. we didnt get it refunded and had to buy some sandwish on the way home for her.... :(

Fino's is absolutely fabulous! We love the cozy ambiance and the service is top notch. The regular menu features delicious Italian food with a nice emphasis on shellfish. The specials are outstanding...innovative and scrumptious. I can't say enough good things about Fino! It's a favorite of ours and we will return soon.

Always a warm welcome, great menu for lunch. Book ahead - either in the bar or the restaurant - and it's easy on-line. I've ever eaten there in the evening - always for lunch - and meeting in the bar beforehand is easy for the host and guests alike. Every cab driver knows Fino's!
