Superb dining experience in Westport. My wife and I went to Rustico Trattoria to celebrate an anniversary with a five at the end and were delighted by our dining experience. We had heard good things in Greenwich about this relatively new trattoria in Westport. The greeting was genuinely welcoming from the moment we stepped in from the front door of this emerging, hot spot in Westport. The place was bustling in part due to Moms' Night Out on Wednesday night, which I gather is becoming common here but was unobtrusive even in this smaller trattoria. The cheerful, intimate trattoria had a lovely ambiance with beautifully wrought stonework throughout. Glen was our waiter and he was most attentive and gracious. We started with a nice Chardonnay and Martini followed by a Caesar which was generous but delicately prepared so that the fresh flavours presented themselves originally and we were off to a good start. I ordered the Pollo Ripieno which generous stuffed chicken dish came with a beautifully prepared red wine sauce. My wife ordered the fettucine in a brandy, cream sauce with sundried tomatoes and mushrooms. She raved about the spectacular flavour of this dish a few times on the way home to Greenwich. I finished with a Tiramisu which, I swear, was not of this world -- very possibly the best desert ever created by the hands of man. We closed with a spectacular lemoncello for my wife and an orangecello for me -- I highly recommend that you finish your meal in this festive way. The service was extremely friendly, prompt, diligent and the gracious chef visited our table to say hello in a very nice touch. I really can't recommend this immersive Westport dining experience highly enough. Extremely good value for the highly reasonable menu pricing. We are most eager to return to Rustico Trattoria and I give it my highest rating of ***** (five stars out of five.)

Angelina's is a homey local restaurant which has been in business in the same space for all over 25 years! They are still there for a reason - good food at reasonable prices. If the food is not to a particular taste, go somewhere else - Westport is full of restaurants - several Italian. They change every few years - I continue to go to Angelina's with my family because I enjoy the food.
I love how first review is a trash review, to think people actually still post phony reviews. I have eaten there many times in my childhood and at catered family gatherings and have never had a bad experience. Its not $50 per person so its not the fanciest place, but they deliver quality traditional hometown Italian cuisine. It tastes how its has tasted for generations.
