Joe Bastianich and Andy Nusser– the team behind Tarry Lodge in Port Chester and Michelin-starred Casa Mono– opened Tarry Lodge in Westport in the summer of 2011.

Tarry Lodge Enoteca Pizzeria features Nusser's signature hand-made pastas, exquisite fritti, and succulent meats cooked to order on our wood fired grill. The menu will have a distinct focus on local ingredients and we are taking full advantage of Westport's bustling farmer's market.

The centerpiece of the room is a Mugnaini pizza oven hand crafted by the famed Refratarri Valoriani, a family of artisans making pizza ovens since 1890. This fantastic oven will be surrounded by a dining counter, where guests can watch pizzaiolo Mario La Posta craft his world class pies.

I'm a private chef who is always looking for a good place to eat. They are few and far between in CT. Tarry Lodge's food is excellent!. The service was good though a little slow especially waiting for coffee and dessert like the waitress dropped the ball. Other than that, we will go back

Always a good option for Italian food in the Westport area. The pizzas are actually pretty good too! Sad to see the removed the frisee lettuce from one of the salads and replaced it with field greens which get soggy from the dressing.

The acoustics were great. Restaurant was full and we weren’t disturbed by noise of people around us and the music was low and subtle! Everyone’s dishes were delicious! Excellent wine too.

We had a reservation for 5 people and they sat us at a table for 4. When we asked to get another table the manager said he would check to see what other reservations that had coming in that night. The couple next to us were sitting at a table for 4 and they were kind enough to give us the table they were not using.
Food was ok. Nothing spectacular. Most of our dinners were way under seasoned. Pizza was the best part of the night.

My wife’s salmon was burnt on the outside and had a burnt taste on the inside.
My son’s plain pasta with butter was dripping in butter
Salads were drenched in dressing
I was charged $20 for my son’s bowl of pasta with butter. That was more than my pasta with chicken Ragu and cherry peppers. It was called a side portion which cost More than 2 kids portions and outrageous regardless. 1 kids portion was 6 Rigatoni noodles so I had to order 2 and they couldn’t figure out how to order so they charged me for 2 side portions.

I enjoyed the food and service tremendously. The only thing that throws me off is that on the two occasions I have been here with my toddler. I have been sat in the back of the restaurant - coincidence ? I don’t know. Other then that everything was great.

Having eaten at this restaurant several times my preferred seating is always at the pizza bar. The two pizza chefs are always willing to chat and share their tips on how to make the best pizza.

Steve is very proud of the incredible wood burning massive pizza oven and is happy to tell his guests about it.

If you like pizza and Italian food in general it’s definitely a must go to restaurant. Oh and the Bastianich Vespa Bianco wine is absolutely delicious.

My husband and I have been to this restaurant several times and each time it gets better. We met friends there this weekend and they could not stop raving about the food (even called us the next day to reiterate how much they enjoyed it). In addition, the service was great. Our waiter (and the others assisting him) was helpful and attentive without being intrusive. A really lovely dining experience. We would highly recommend Tarry Lodge Westport.

Good pizza - well baked and fresh - noisy - but some classic Crosby Stills - not the typical cheap throwaway pop trash, pepper is in everything in case you have an allergy. Pretty fine for lunch. Parking is a crunch...

Steak was rare and extremely fatty...not worth the money. Will not be going back. Also not accommodating what so ever with the menu. My date asked to get shrimp, chicken, or salmon on her salad and they could not do either one. Very disappointing.

We went for Mother’s Day brunch. The service was extremely slow and when the food finally came out it was stone cold. We returned one seafood entree and split the pasta, even though it was also very cold... we didn’t want to wait another hour to be served. When the bill came, we were charged for something we didn’t order. Not a relaxing or enjoyable dining experience.

We had early reservation and the place was almost empty when we arrived and they placed us right next to the door. Felt like we were seating in the waiting chairs. The front desk guy wasn’t friendly at all and didn’t even greet us. The food was okay. My kids ordered pizzas and it was so runny and could not even hold the slices. So i asked them make it again so I can take it home and ordered them another dish. When we leave, I checked the pizza in the box, it was the same one. They didn’t even bother to make new one. Horrible experience.

Love Tarry Lodge and the Guanciale pizza with Sunny Side Up Egg and Black Truffles is amazing. You can't get anything like that anywhere else. As always when I leave I can't believe how much I paid for a pizza, salad and two glasses of wine, but we go here as a special occassion only so once in awhile it is amazing!

Salads and pizzas are delicious. I did ask for light cheese and it was still fully loaded, so be specific and insistent. Noise level is high when it's crowded.

Terry Lodge was excellent. We were greeted in a very welcoming way at the door and seated immediately. the server was prompt and friendly. I wanted to order an Italian wine and the server had extensive knowledge about the wine list and her recommendations were excellent. We also modified our order for food and everything was prepared exactly as we ordered. The food was unique and delicious. When I think about the food, 'fresh' comes to mind first. The presentation was also pleasing. I would recommend this convenient to the train restaurant to anyone looking for great food paired with excellent wine!

A consistently very good choice in the area for quality Italian cuisine. Food shines but lackluster service, noise levels and tight spaces impact the overall experience negatively.
