I ate here 3 times! The food was consistently excellent and the service good. I like the ambiance here as well.

The aromas wafting through the air waved me into this quaint restaurant. It's just my kind of spot - small, cozy, inviting with simple, relaxing music playing softly in the background. I ordered a White Wine, Pasta Arrabiata, (served with warm bread), and finished with Dessert Crepes - Fresh Strawberry with Marscapone & a cup of Chamomile Tea. Everything was... More

No smiles, no chit chat, just get down to business to take your order. The place seemed relaxing. On the board was the chef's suggestion, which had 4 items. One would think right away that everything was included but apparently you just choose one. I felt rushed and pressured to choose. I don't know what it was, maybe the demeanor.... More

I stopped in for coffee and was walked through the retail shop to the lovely outdoor courtyard. I was seated alone at a table for 4. In addition to the garden plants and flowers, they had these huge ceramic urns around the tables in the garden. Getting up from the table after paying my check, my handbag brushed the topside...

Let's be fair here... there is nothing wrong with this place per se, all I'm saying is that this place is average at best, nothing to write home about (I had a salad, ravioli and a limonada... meh...) and with so many other options in town, I really don't think I'll be coming back. I checked it out because of... More

Tucked in away from a major street, facing a lovely elongated patio you'll find La Finestra, a charming glassed-in cafe with a pleasant and relaxed bistro vibe. There's a rack of magazines in Spanish and English, inviting one to stay awhile and enjoy the atmosphere, whether it be for sweet bite with a good cup of coffee or something more... More

Excellent service and very good food - we enjoyed a wonderful lentil soup and other dishes including an apple strudel for dessert. Also good coffee/espresso. Will return.

Great arranchara. prices much lower at lunch time. Nice breeze as it's upstairs, with wide open windows on both sides. Very tiny dining room. The food is good and the waiters are attentive and friendly.

Cant speak for breakfast which sounds better but the lunch menu was not cheap, mediocre in all the slightly fancy sounding but simple dishes we tried(relying too heavily on the simple remedy of drenching everything in sour cream) and of such small portions of salad and main dish I ended up eating too much (again not so great white) bread...
