Great food, great owners

Love this little place! So nice to find gems like Finezza's in West Nashville! Great Italian, great service, and great atmosphere. Only complaint would be they are busy!

Changed, but not for the good

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 th...view moreis 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.view less

What a find!

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 ge...view moret there!view less

service was not so great

The food was good but the service was not.\r
We made a reservation and sat in the waiting area\r
for 1 hour waiting to be seated.\r
People who were ""regulars"" would walk-in and they were seated before us. I was very upset.\r
After we were seated, the service was so-so.\r
They knew I was a little upset because ALOT of people were regulars and seated before us,\r
so the waitress was not very friendly.\r
WHen we needed a refill on water or a drink\r
all of the other tables wer
...view moree tended to but us.\r
I was never outwardly rude but I let them know by my body language that I was upset.\r
I would not eat here again.

Totally Unexpected!!

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!!!!

Tremendous Experience

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.

Best Chicken Marsala I have ever had!

My friends and I have been meeting at Finezza for dinner over the last ten years and we have yet to be disappointed. If I am not mistaken, the restaurant is on its 3rd owner in those ten years and whatever they are doing it works for us. It's hard to believe that the new owner Karen used to wait on us almost six years ago. Just the other night she told us that she was now the new owner. We could not believe it, and this just adds to the reason for us to continue to eat there. I me...view morean besides the great food and the atmosphere; someone that used to wait tables has worked her way up the ladder to become the owner. How great is that. I can promise you one thing for sure, we will continue to eat at Finezza not only for the food and the atmosphere, but also to see Karen's pretty and always smiling face! There is nothing better to do after a long day at the office then to eat some really good Italian food and share a bottle of wine with friends and in a cozy environment! Hats off Karen and good luck!!! We will see you soon!view less

""Casual elegance""

We chose to attend Finezza Trattoria after reading an employee's rebuttal to a less-than-savory review. This is the first time we felt a need to share our dining experience. \r
\r
From the warm greeting upon our arrival to the gracious escort to our candle-lit table, we felt like the only couple in the room! The Chicken Piccata was extremely tender with a sauce that did not overwhelm. The Veal a la Fiorentina was melt-in-your-mouth delicious. The accompanying spinach and onion s
...view moreauce was the perfect complement. We enjoyed the tasty bread along with garlic-infused olive oil, balsamic vinegar, pungent parmesan cheese and herb butter. Go ahead and give Finezza a try. It provided a wonderful meal and a romantic evening. (10 September 2008)view less

A great place.

I would like to quote and address the comments by ""Cameraman51""\r
\r
First of all, we would like to thank you for giving us a try and we are sorry you were disappointed.\r
\r
However, as an employee of Finezza's, as well as a loyal customer, I would like to point out some inaccuracies in your review. \r
\r
I can safely say that I know for a fact that our salads do not now, nor have they ever, come from a ""bag"". We chop our lettuce every afternoon before opening, and shred th
...view moree carrots and red lettuce in a food processor. They are very fresh, and we make all of our dressings. We even make our crutons from our left over home made bread everyday. I have yet to hear anyone verbally express dissatisfaction with our salads, though I'm sure it is a matter of personal taste.\r
\r
As for your chicken polenta, we serve polenta italian style, which is a bit different than the gritty southern style. I am sorry that our servers did not inform you of this before you ordered. I am also sorry that you did not like the taste or they way it was prepared, also. However I will note that most of our customers who order the polenta love it, as it is a very unique dish.\r
\r
As for your wife's eggplant parmesean, yes it is two (breaded and fried) sliced pieces of eggplant, and the reason we don't put sauce in between is because we put it all on top. I am no chef, but I personally think that putting sauce or cheese in between them would not only be overkill, but extremely messy and hard to eat. It is covered in a light layering marinara, and a blend of italian cheese, then served with a side of linguine marinara. I can assure you that our cooks taste the sauce they are preparing for the customers to eat. If we ever started receiving any complaints about the taste of our sauce, we would taste it and alter it as necessary-of course. And no, we do not season our noodles, unless a recipe calls for it. \r
\r
So once again, we are sorry you had a bad experience, and hope you try us again soon.
