Fiamma Trattoria - Mamaroneck - A gem!

Fiamma is a must go! I have been there 6 or 7 times since it opened in June. The food is always excellent and the prices are very reasonable for the quality and the size of the portions which are generous. The place is very laid back and relaxed. Don’t miss the fresh mozzarella which the chef says is made fresh there every day. The fresh pastas (flat ones) are great as is anything with the Bolognese on it. The lobster manicotti is amazing. Polenta based apps are super. I never order steak out but the Rib eye with with the mushrooms and caramelized onions has such a nice grilled taste to it that I would order it again and have. Veal and eggplant dishes are super. Very good crusty bread and for desert try the Nutella calzone with bananas and ice cream. YUM! Be aware the place is small and fills up early. Also, since everything is fresh they can run out of some things on the weekends and when they are packed service can be slow BUT the food is well worth the wait.

At the risk of incurring the wrath of EHS I have to disagree with both EHS & Pinnacle's comments. The comments seem personal in nature and it makes me wonder if either of them has an axe to grind.

The hallmarks of a good restaurant should be Quality, Consistency and Variety. Finalmente has genrally accomplished all of that during its first 12 months. I have been there at least 15 times and have always had an excellent meal. One year later and this gem of fine restaurant still ranks as one of my favorites. Sure you may have to wait for a table since reservations are not taken BUT it is well worth it. The food which was excellent a year ago still is and everybody I know who has been agrees with me. As with any new restaurant there were some server issues when they first opened but they are long gone. The menu changes what looks to be about 25% regularly and is always interesting. The prices charged for everything are reasonable and all well worth it. I have always felt like I received great value for my money. The wine list continues to offer some superb values at reasonable restaurant prices and there is a very nice assortment of Italian beers too.

For starters a new salad with thinly sliced smoked duck breast is amazing. The cold antipasti has top quality meats, cheeses and vegetables and is plentiful. Don't miss it.

Pastas: All are made on the premises and are really good. I still love the Tortellini with butter and sage. It takes me back to Firenze. Try the Timbal if you want a real treat.

The regular menu has lots of good choices like Monkfish or Lamb Chops. The specials are great too. Don't miss the Veal Contadina if offered which is one of my favorites or the Zuppa di Pesce type dish with lobster. Simply amazing. I rarely order fish out but I usually order fish here. Always super fresh and cooked perfectly.

All of the desserts are still well worth the calories. Don't miss the Panna Cotta, or the Italian Cheesecake.

One small note of caution; it can get a little noisy during primetime on a Saturday night but all in all Finalmente offers a great dining experience in a beautiful setting. If you are looking for better quality food at reasonable prices try Finalmente. I doubt you will be disappointed.

Mykonos in Dobbs Ferry.

Overpriced fair quality food. Uninspired menu. Not worth going to. Simply said.

Excellent New Greek Restaurant In Westchester

Santorini in Sleppy Hollow? Are you kidding me? Went there when it opened and it was good. Went back a couple of times and it wasn't. Bad service and food that was off. I even went in once to speak with them about catering a party for 36. They were disinterested and snotty. It may have been good when it opened but not now.
