We stumbled upon this place looking for good Chicken Parm - not only did we find GREAT chicken parm - we found some of the most talented restaurant staff on the strand. For any of you that were familiar with Bliss or Nalu's - these folks used to make culinary magic there. I was saddened by the demise of Bliss... More

We began with stuffed banana peppers and ended with homemade bread pudding both of which were wonderful, but the scallops over pasta were the most tender I've ever had and the favor was outstanding. Dishes are made to order from fresh products and forget the menu because daily specials really are special. This was our first visit but we are... More

The food and people are amazing. My favorite are the baked clams and the beef tip appetizers..love them. The owner is passionate about his craft and it shows in the delicious food.

OMG ! Wine, appetizer, and dinner was delicious. We finally took a dessert pic. It would have only been better if it was free. Coming back soon!

Four of us had dinner at Finocchio's in Garden City, South Carolina and all were delighted with the food. Among the four of us we had pasta, salad, soup, a seafood dish and chicken. All were excellent. The portions were big (we had to ask for doggie bags) and the presentation was superior. There's no criticism at all. The lasagna... More

Finocchio's has been our local favorite Italian restaurant in the South Grand Strand area. It was recently purchased by owner and Chef Steve. We live locally and this was our first visit after the ownership change. Wife and I were very pleased with the food quality and service. We were particularly impressed with the chicken parmigiana and fettuccini alfredo with... More

Finally got to check-out Finocchio's......interior is much better than the exterior....ample seating with some atmosphere. The service was prompt and stayed that way all night. The wine list is good and the bartender was more than willing to get creative for one of our guest's off-the-books drink order. The appetizers and entrees were outstanding - all of them. Very good...

Wonderful. You want to keep looking at the door to see DiNero or Pacino walk in. White linen table cloths, reasonable priced good Italian wine, romantic. Professional courteous service. Everything was perfect. Delicious.

Good dinner, quaint atmosphere. My wife and I liked the bread and Caesar salad. Scallops and risotto were wonderful. Friendly, attentive service. Too many features to actually remember, and we were surprised at the price of $32 for my entree. Thought it was going to be in the mid-20s closer to the other menu items that are $13 to $25,...

Located in a small strip mall, this fantastic restaurant is family owned and the food is just fantastic! They have a wonderful menu selection and if not busy, will make anything you have a craving for. We went there today for a late lunch. I had a craving for eggplant rollatini with prosciutto which wasn't on the menu. Steve was... More
