Great dining experience

I'm from out of town and just happened upon this place for a lite lunch. We only had soup, but both the spinach and the pasta fagioli soups were incredible. Not till later did I realize it is listed as the number one restaurant in Westport. The server was very accommodating given we only wanted... read more

High end food in a low key atmosphere. Nothing bad on the menu, good wine selection. Very small place, intimate and will return. Great for lunch date or business meeting or to see an old friend.

I really like Finalmente. The atmosphere in this small restaurant is simple, but it does have charm and an agreeable personality. Service is excellent: genial, professional and unobtrusive. And the good is very, very good. The tri-color salad and carpaccio di tonno (tuna) were tasty and fresh. The vongole (Manila clam) appetizer was just ok. Otherwise Finalmente would merit a... More

I've traveled to Italy many times and have to say that this place is one of the few around that transport me back to Italia. Small and cozy. Outdoor seating is great too!

For nearly a decade I have been eating at Finalmente, and like a fine wine it keeps getting better with age. Operated by owners Andre and Mary Iodice, with their children by their side, this is truly a family owned and operated restaurant. On your soon to be 10th year in business, I want to give you all kudos for... More

My husband I have been going to Finalmente Trattoria for several years and each time we go the food has been exceptional. My husband usually orders one of the fish specials and always enjoys, I love their lasagna and the home made Cheesecake or lemon cello. They have a nice selection of wine to enjoy. As many have said the... More

We celebrated our friend's birthday at Finalmente Trattoria and it was excellent! Owner, Andre, made us feel like guests in his home. The food was terrific and service was very personal. We will be back!

My husband and I have been dining at Finalmente for years primarily because of the quality of their food. While I usually do not order fish, my son owns a high-end restaurant on the west coast and told me distributors sometimes do substitute farmed salmon for wild (and charge the restaurant the wild salmon price). It was an unfortunate oversight... More

Honestly, I was hesitant to write this review because I was hoping to keep Finalmente as secret as possible, at the same time, it's polite to share positive feedback for those who deserve it - and Finalmente deserves a standing ovation. Easily one of the best dining experiences we've ever had, all I can say is BRAVO! Finalmente has ALL... More
