You wouldn’t mind driving south for Solaire Resort and Casino’s very own Italian restaurant, Finestra. The journey will pay off when you get a taste of fine Italian cuisine.

Finestra has been known as an Italian family-style restaurant. But it recently decided to step up a notch with its premium steak style, hence the rebrand to Finestra Italian Steakhouse.

In charge of the newly revamped Finestra is Italian executive chef Alan Marchetti. With a combination of imported ingredients and his culinary flair, Chef Marchetti carefully and thoughtfully creates a masterpiece that will take your palate on a gastronomic journey.

“I want our guests to enjoy food that enhances their Finestra experience and fuses it with a sense of place. We think of this as an experience and we treat the food accordingly,” Chef Marchetti says.

Finestra exudes a modern Italian ambiance with light and fine tones. It boasts of a high blown-glass ceiling, lavish interiors, and a showcase of fine wine, cigar, and prime beef brands. Apart from the spacious main dining area, Finestra also offers a private dining area for reservations.

From old-time favorites to new finds, here are some of what Finestra has to offer:

Finestra Caesar

This organic salad mixes crisp textures with robust flavors, such as Spanish marinated anchovies, pancetta, aged parmesan, and grilled focaccia croutons.

Fritto Misto

Bow down to this dish of deep-fried king prawns with a mild, sweet, and almost nutty taste. It’s made even more scrumptious with some calamari and zucchini.

Australian Blackmore Wagyu Beef

Your Italian dining experience will not be complete without a taste of this mouthwatering cut of steak. Its swanky name suggests the tangy flavor oozing from the meat. It pairs perfectly with a glass of red wine.

Snake River Wagyu Beef

The star of the show, it is one of the best premium steaks in town. With its buttery texture, intense marbling, and subtle flavors, this meal is sure to linger on your mind.

Baked Alaska

There’s always room for dessert. Cool down as you take a spoonful of chocolate ice cream encased in a chilled merengue, with a kick of rum.

Finestra Tiramisu

If you’re in the mood for something else, try this classic combination of mascarpone, Marsala, ladyfingers, and coffee.
