EXCELLENT – Unbelievable place, great decor not over powering but simple and beautiful. i took my wife on a nice evening walk in the financial district as i am newly employed in the area and walked into fino as i have always heard great things from my co-workers. I first noticed that the most of wall street eat's here. you can tell this is definitely a place where the big shot executives go to talk business. The staff made us feel special, and made me feel like a big shot they do not treat any one differently if you sped 1$ or $100000. really was a remarkable feeling. I had the Filet Mignon special they had that nite, the Mait're D sauteed it in front of me it was remarkable, melts in your mouth my wife had a dish of pasta that could feed 4 ppl, excellent as well. deserts was good we split a piece of homemade hazelnut cake. for the whole package i thought the check would be more expensive than it was. as we walked out i noticed a wine celler nestled in the back which looked really cool....reccomend to everyone really is fantastic
eat at your own risk – Fino is a New York restaurant located in a Wall Street area of downtown Manhattan where I chose to take a client for a business dinner on December 1, 2009.
I ordered a soup, my party ordered one appetizer and a dinner, all of which were completely uneatable (if safe to consume), for there was something inside the dishes that made our teeth grind. Needless to say, the entire meal went UNTOUCHED; the waiter did not seem to be surprised. Not to ruin the experience and to display my regret in choice of restaurants, I asked the host if the restaurant would permit us to consume the wine that I had with me (I was, frankly, afraid to taste anything else they had on the menu). The host politely agreed.
When we finished the wine and were ready to leave, I asked for a check. To my surprise, not only was I charged for entire meal that we ordered, I was overcharged for two items, charged for items I never ordered (or offered), and to my dismay, I was charged $25 "cork fee" for opening my bottle! I have dined in thousands of restaurants in New York City over the years and have never seen such an obscene amount charged for a cork fee! The customary charge in a Manhattan restaurant ranges from $5 to $10 maximum, depending on the establishment. Wall Street restaurants, an area where I spent half of my life and visited countless eateries (from which I never contested a charge), are usually run in a lower range.
I discreetly notified the host of all the problems with the charge, and calmly returned him the check listing a $0 for a tip. After hearing me out, said host (who can be best described as an older overweight Romanian, who called himself "Pietro Vuli" - hopefully, the above description will help the restaurant owner to identify the person) went on a violent tirade. After screaming out curses and insults in front of the entire restaurant, loudly calling me "a cheap f&*k," he THREW A CORK AT ME, threatened me, and proceeded to obscenely insult my client! I demanded to see the owner of the restaurant and he proudly said "I AM THE OWNER", which I highly doubt. After I insisted in seeing the owner, he threatened to call the cops if I don't leave immediately, took our coats and threw them out!
I would love to speak with the owner of the restaurant, but the "manager" would never transfer me.
what a find – This was an outstanding restaurant this was the best italian food i have ever had in America and i know italian food being born and raised in italy, service was very friendly and professional the owners hospitality was typical italian, and the space is astonishingly beautiful and plenty of privacy please take my advice ask for the private wine room it is something special tough to find the entrance off of wall street but keep looking you dont want to miss. this is one of NYC's best kept secrets
Great find on Wall St. – I came to Fino one night for dinner with my wife and was very pleasantly surprised. The restaurant has lots of space and rooms so we weren't piled on top of another table and the food and service were right on par. Both great with no complaints. I will def. be back again soon..
Editorial Review – Expansive, warmly-lit Italian restaurant and bar serves regional specialties like lobster ravioli and bison tender loin with bacon.
