One of Contra Costa Countys only Sicilian restaurants in a county where trattorias outnumber bistros five to one La Finestra still keeps its specialties bashfully hidden amid boring Tuscan standbys. Bypass the penne carbonara and gnocchi in brown butter sauce and order anything with more exotic-sounding pine nuts and raisins, saffron and mint, or orange and fennel. The housemade focaccia sometimes comes to the table straight from the oven.
