Years ago, a dear friend of mine, L.G., introduced me to a hidden gem in Westport, CT. Since then, I have been to this restaurant many times with her. However, every time I speak of this gem in company of other foodies I get the sense that no one seems to know that this place even exists! Could it be that, there are so many new eateries constantly opening up in Fairfield County that people are always playing “catch up”? Could it be that our food culture is so rapidly moving towards modern-American as well as fusion cuisine that the authentic cultural cuisines are losing their charm? What gives?!!!
Finalmente Trattoria in Westport offers a truly authentic Italian dining experience. Every time I step in through their front door, I feel I have been transported to Italy. Andre, the owner, and his staff are sure to make everyone feels welcome. Chef Guido Tenorio will whip up simply gorgeous homestyle recipes from families in northern and southern Italy for his guest’s dining pleasure. As soon as you settle in, you will also notice that those who know of this place are regulars, and Andre knows them by name.
Situated just blocks away from Westport Playhouse, it is a perfect restaurant for pre-show dining. It is also a great choice for a romantic dinner for two. Get the hint, people? :-)
