Waitress was excellent. Atmosphere was good. Bread basket had three different breads in it all good. Served with olive oil would have liked the plates and or oil to have been spiced. Oil was kind of flat it needed spices. The salad was good. Our meals were good and the sauce was amazing. Would have liked to have seen a... More

Came for dinner here once. The staff/service was excellent, very attentive and professional. Nice atmosphere. A little on the old-side for my taste. Romantic lighting from chandeliers. The food choices on the menu were very, very good, but the meals we had were average for an Italian restaurant. Some say this is the best Italian restaurant in Fairfield and that... More

By far, the best Italian restaurant in the area. Consistently amazing and delicious. We've tried all different types of dishes - pizza, pasta, salads, meat dishes and they are all incredible. The family is welcoming and service is top-notch.

The food is consistently excellent, and we tend to save Avellino's for special occasions. The waitstaff is well-trained and helpful is making suggestions. Parking can be tricky to find, but staff has helped us with that too. The dining room is closely packed and sometimes gets warm in the summer, so you might want to wear layers.

One of our favorite Fairfield restaurants for many years. So many great dishes to choose from their menu, but their GAMBERI AL LIMONE is outstanding. The service is excellent and overall, Avellino's is one of the most consistent restaurants I've found.

Avellino's is a family owned Italian restaurant located in downtown Fairfield. The food is consistently delicious and prices are reasonable for the quality of the meal. The decor is charming, ambience is good and in the summer months they offer a few tables for outdoor dining. Dress is casual. I must say, it is my favorite Italian restaurant in Fairfield.

Have been going here for years, only recently started to review restaurants so I have a lot of catching up to do. The food is always consistently great. I am a creature of habit so when I asked for something that is not on the newer menu they are always happy to make it for me. My son Loves the... More

My husband and I were having a horrible day...and we went to Avellino's on a Monday night...and what a fabulous meal we had! Thank you to the Del Franco family for a terrific evening and the veal with arugula...the best!

When it comes to Italian, this is our first choice in fairfield... and that's saying a lot because Fairfield has many to choose from. Great family run restaurant! My husband, the connoisseur of Chicken Parmigiano, says it's the best. I also say the same of their Lasagna - outstanding. But what we like about this restaurant is that is not... More

Good meal-Veal parmigiana and an eggplant dish. The sauce was quite good. Good service-Very polite and considerate. Never waited too long for drinks. Average atmosphere-typical Italian restaurant. Not too noisy. There was seating outside. Good price. Two entrees, two glasses of wine and a soda. $70.
