THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED La Finestra Restaurant Review

: Greg Randall and wife Cindy took over La Finestra in 2007, midway through the Italian restaurant’s renovations. The menu remains the same, with the addition of some new specialties. Expect airy gnocchetti in a fresh tomato cream sauce; thin-crusted pizza topped with caramelized onions, roasted peppers and smoked mozzarella; and a lovely dish combining moist chicken breasts with chopped tomatoes, baby artichokes and pine nuts. There’s also a nice thin-pounded New York steak served with garlic, crushed red pepper and olive oil.
