Had appetizers and drinks. Great appetizers. Reasonably priced. Will definitely go back for dinner. The antipasto was terrific and the Spedini, an Italian appetizer that is not normally on the menu, was delicious.

We ate here a couple of years ago and were disappointed this year when we learned that Finnoccio's had closed. A new group took over Finnoccio's location and it is called La Trattoria. We ate there on March 17/18. They had opened just a few...More

After reading reviews, we expected great Italian food. NOT! The Chicken Sorrentino was terrible. The chicken was an eighth of an inch thick & buried under sauce, cheese, prosciutto and unpeeled fried eggplant which gave the entire dish a very bitter & greasy taste. The...More

We had reservations for dinner and were seated immediately. Our drink order and bread were quickly brought to our table while we viewed the menu. We ordered and due to a miscue, our entrée came out ahead of our salads. No problem, we ate it...More

I just left this restaurant and would say the food was delicious. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 was the waitress that served us was bad. The other waitress paid more attention to us than the one we had.More

I'm very sorry, when I came out to the table you politely let me know your initial server wasn't up to par. I didn't tell you that night that the server that disappeared was my wife and she wasn't feeling well. I now know why....More

Finocchio's is one of those secret little restaurants that you feel like only the locals know about and keep it to themselves. We found this restaurant about three years ago while on vacation with friends. All of our meals were delicious. While in Myrtle Beach...More
