Finezza started out as a fine restaurant. Maybe not ""fine dining"" but good reliable Italian food, and a local favorite. Having eaten there many times over the years, I have seen some changes in the flavors and the quality, but not as bad as recently. The flavor of the food in general was way off. In fact, there has been a marked change in the overall quality. Manicotti is always a great middle ground for testing the sauce, quality of cheezes in the filling and the pasta itself. Is this Mexican, disguised as Italian? Is this Mediterranean disguised as Italian? Whatever it is, it barely has the flavor of any Italian restaurant I've ever eaten in (many). The pasta was so dry that it tasted like a flour tortilla! My guest tried the Insalata Caprese, which was oddly presented as a huge pile of sliced tasteless Roma tomatoes, topped with slices of low quality Mozzarella cheese that had a strange and stringy edging that peeled off the slices. The julienne Basil leaves were the only thing good about it. We twice requested that the air conditioning be turned down. It never happened. Almost everyone in the place was wearing jackets. This was my last visit to Finezza.
me and my husband and another couple wanted to try a new restaurant and I was in charge of researching. After reviewing many placed I decided we would try Finezza. Wow were we pleased! The food was great, the service was wonderful. Our waitress was very knowledgeable and when we were not sure of the wine she brought us a sample to try which was excellent! The tiramusu was to die for!! The best any of us have ever had!!!!! Will definetly go back and we drove from Mt. Juliet to get there!

The food was good but the service was not.
We made a reservation and sat in the waiting area
for 1 hour waiting to be seated.
People who were ""regulars"" would walk-in and they were seated before us. I was very upset.
After we were seated, the service was so-so.
They knew I was a little upset because ALOT of people were regulars and seated before us,
so the waitress was not very friendly.
WHen we needed a refill on water or a drink
all of the other tables were tended to but us.
I was never outwardly rude but I let them know by my body language that I was upset.
I would not eat here again.
The food was amazing and seemed to be a family friendly atmosphere, but also a great place for couples. The only one complaint is that there really isn't a waiting area so we felt in the way as we were waiting for a friend to use the restroom. Overall I would recommend this restaurant as a great value with amazing food!!!!

We were seated immediately by the owner, and she was very helpful in giving us some advice since it was our first time. The food was excellent, and the bread they brought our before the meal was particularly delicious. I highly recommend giving this place a chance. You will not be disappointed.
