Intimate Italian, great food, great wine list and impeccable service. Their pasta and chicken dishes are fantastic.Their minestrone is the best I have ever had. Make reservations it is a small place. The owner Andre has done a fantastic job with this place and adds to the ambiance.

“One of our favorites”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

Everytime I have eaten here the food is always excellent. Andre is the most hospitibale resaurant owner and you can tell his hands on attention to the kitchen and the customers pays off. Specials are always interesting and always good. They are very accomodating if you need a slight change to your meal. Although a small venue, I find it comfortable. Someone mentioned something about it being crowded, I think that in itself is a testament to people enjoying and coming back often. My wife and I always enjoy our dinners at this restaurant and are always greeted warmly by Andre and staff. They make us feel so welcome and appreciated as customers.

“The best little restuarant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2013

Whenever we want a special dinner out, Finalmente is our first choice. The ambiance, the food and the service are always excellent. In a town full of some great restaurants, this one rises above the rest for its quality, friendliness and some special touches. They do a great job on "pairing" wines when requested and, the final complimentary touch of their home made Limencello is not to be missed.

The place is very small, so reservations are recommended especially on weekends.

“Nicest Owner, Very Fine Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2013

Excellent Italian cuisine preparation is added to the personal warmth of the owner. An educated taste buds, wine-drinking clientele fill this tiny storefront restaurant on Playhouse theater and other nights. We hope they can find a slightly larger, less drafty venue in the future, but meanwhile we support their well-earned high marks and caring efforts in the very challenging, competitive Italian and other diverse restaurant scene of Westport and Fairfield.

“Italian gem in downtown Wesport”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2013

Andre and his brother Sal operate a small Italian restaurant with an extensive menu and wine list. The food is excellent and the pasta is fresh and perfectly prepared. The service is personal and first class. While this place was a Westport secret for awhile it has now gained broader recognition and a wider following of regulars. Reservations on weekends are recommended.
