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

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!

After many years of excellent food and service our last experience was disappointing $40+ for an entree doesn’t allow for a bad night.

There were 6 of us. Every one enjoyed and would go back again. Excellent food except the Caesar salad was a bit soggy from being overdressed. Rest of food was very good.

I noticed they had sound board to try to absorb the noise but unfortunately it was very noisy and it was a Tuesday evening out of season.

We would recommend and go back

Food is very good, was served hot and was on hot plates. Service is great and dinner was promptly served. Tables were a little close together. Outside dining is a valid option.
Noise level on the second floor was high enough to make it difficult to hear. The first floor seemed a good bit quieter. We did enjoy our meal and will go back.

Server was nice and very personable. Food was great. No complaints about any of it. Window seating with a view is scarce but we were lucky enough to score one. It's not a large restaurant so seating is a little tight and it can be a bit noisy at times. Overall a very good experience and I would recommend this establishment to anyone.
