“Good place for casual dining”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

If you don't mind a somewhat bright, chattery, and clattery atmosphere, this is a good place for some very good dining. The food is fresh and well prepared -- delicious. Noise levels can get a little deafening, depending on when exactly you go, and there's no predicting (of course I'd avoid weekends unless you have earplugs). Service was just not very skilled.

“BUONO. (Bravo Batali)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

First went to the one in Portchester a few times over the first years it was opened; crowded, loud, poor service albeit delicious food. Then found the one in Westport... no competition! Real pizza alla italiana - sit at the little bar that surrounds the pizzaiolo and watch him do his stuff - great for the kids too. Get the crostini al fegato with a tuscan red - just like in Florence. Lived in Italy for a few years and this is one of the places I can go to get a fix of the genuine cucina Italiana ;)

“"Twice too many"”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

Shortly after opening, on 8/10/11, we tried Tarry Lodge. Bad experience! Wrote to the owner and never got a reply! So, we never went back until we decided to give it a chance again on Oct 9, 2013. It was restaurant week with a fixed menu; a bit less crowded, still very noisy; good service; large portions, but more cafeteria style than gourmet restaurant. And what a Maalox night to follow!!
For the money, there are plenty of much better restaurants!

“Love!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

One of the best pizzas I've had outside of Italy. It ranks right up there with Haven in Bethesda. How great is it to find a place with delicious, authentic pizza and delicious wine, at a very reasonable price?

“Great service, good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013 via mobile

My first time at this restaurant; was highly recommended by a friend. The service, performed by teams, was outstanding - polite, attentive, helpful. The food was good and came in quantities that didn't leave us hungry. The wine menu was a bit pricey for the offerings. I would probably go back - very convenient to the Westport rail station.
