Stopped in on a lovely February afternoon. Small room with a variety of decors and colors. Seated at one of the tables/booths in the front. A bit too sunny for us, but our waiter was very accomodating in moving us to the elevated table that looks out over the street and the restaurant. The antipasto for 4 was plenty for the 5 of us, and delicious. Caprese, shrimp, mussels, calimari, brushetta, it was almost a meal on its own. The pannini were excellent, especially the fresh mozzarella, basil and proscuitto, but one of the chicken sandwiches was slight on the poultry. The only dish that fell flat was the vodka a la penne. Very little flavor and overcooked pasta. Wines by the glass fairly good and fairly priced. Espresso and coffee were first rate. Our waiter, who doubled as the maitre' d, was a pro.

I was surprised by some reviews. Those knocking this place might not realize that quantity does not always mean quality. My wife is from Italy and truly enjoyed the "Fino".
We had the Seafood Chowder and Lobster Ravioli, both were excellent. Great atmosphere and great service.

The only thing good about this restaurant was the atmosphere. The food was not very tasty at all, tested like it was bought at the closest chain grocery store and plopped in the water. Sauce was watery and lacked flavor. I was there with some friends for a meal and conversation, the man serving us was constantly at our table asking us if we were done so we felt like he just wanted to turn over the table even though the place wasn't busy.

Besides feeling very rushed and cramped, the food was extremely overpriced and terrible. Not sure what kind of sauce they made, it definitely wasn't anything close to marinara. I left my dinner and the waiter didn't even ask what was wrong.

We had just flown in from the west coast and were looking for something not too fancy but nice. Service was excellent and food was very good: 2 people, 1 salad, 2 entrees, garlic bread, an extremely generous pour of Glenlivet, and 3 glasses of wine came to $100.

The portobello ravioli with scallops was very good if you like creamy sauces and the chicken piccata was also good. The Sicilian salad had yummy olives. Wine was average wine by the glass.
