The owner was there and he described every plate. I am Italian and this is authentic Italian. All al dente! Made at the right minute you order, service is fast and good. Don't forget dessert ! All were really good

Just the right size, Owners Andre and Mary greet you as you walk in and the love of their establishment shines. The service was perfect in every way. No understaffing here. Plates removed when they should be, no sooner, no later. You are made to feel you are a valued friend, not just a customer. The menu is a fusion... More

This small restaurant has great service and an innovative menu. Andre, the owner, greets you warmly and goes over the special which are pleasant surprises and actually special. Pasta dishes are beautifully prepared and unusual. We have not gone beyond the pasta and salad parts of the menu but our next trip will include the real test which will be... More

Tucked away off of the main thoroughfare is this romantic Italian restaurant with an atmosphere that feels cozy and upscale at the same time. The entrees were very good (breaded chicken, spaghetti with filet mignon), the portions appropriate, but it was the four-cheese cheesecake that stole the show. I would definitely eat here again, choosing different entrees, as I imagine... More

We went to dinner with another couple. It is a small place, so reserve. Very pleasant. Service was excellent and the food very good. We've been there a few times and will return. Limited parking, but there are spots within a short walk.

Passing thru enroute to Boston, and by chance found it. Google map found the nearby location, as we pulled up I recognized it from a quick read of Trip Advisor I had completed earlier Nothing could be closer to the highway and convenience Staff was welcoming and friendly. Offered a few personal favorites and we jumped in. All 5 Tapas... More

As a frequent diner in the area, I had avoided Finalmente, based on outward appearance and odd location but I was astounded and amazed at how delicious everything was. Most noteworthy - The garden fresh tomato sauce, the tapenade for the bread, the attentive and friendly service, the low-key and relaxed ambiance but the stand out of the evening was... More

Yesterday, I had lunch in this delightful little gem, together with eight other women. The staff couldn't have been more courteous or helpful. The food was delicious! They started us off with a basket of interesting bread, together with an olive tapenade. I, together with two others, ordered the Bucatini Carbonara. I love Carbonara, and have had it many times...

Mozzarella in carozza-I've never had a more unusual & crave worthy appetizer (egg battered mozzarella stuffed bread with anchovy butter sauce). But that was just the beginning of a wonderful meal in a small, intimate trattoria that you definitely must try! Just be aware there is no sit down bar.

Maybe I had a bad day; or maybe they did but after hearing it was great I found a plain restaurant with their too many settings in too small a place with too little pizzazz and a lunch which was equally uninspiring. May go back for dinner and test their pasta before I write it off as the owner and... More
