The title of this review is exactly the dilemma we had when be went for dinner recently at Avellino's in Fairfield. But there's much more than food involved in reviewing an eating establishment so we thought "Yeah, it's fair". WHAT I LIKED: 1. Family run - Dad in the kitchen, mom out front, daughter is our waitress. That's usually a... More

The best part of Avelino's is the warm inviting welcome and at table service. Food is very good (try the Picatta and fish dishes) but a bit pricey. If you are looking for a nice Italian meal where you are not rushed and not a quick plate of spaghetti, Avelino's is a good choice.

Absolutely loved this place. Everything about it was great (except parking, which was merely adequate). Wife had the fried artichoke app + veggie risotto. I had the goat cheese salad + the lemon shrimp risotto. We loved it all. The lemon shrimp risotto is one of the best dishes I've had in months. Service was good and prices reasonable. Would... More

Everything about this restaurant is excellent. Food is always fresh and made to order. Wine selection is one of the best around. When you go in ask to meet Peter, the owner. He and his family will make you feel at home.

My husband and I recently celebrated our anniversary at Avellino's. As usual, they did not disappoint. The atmosphere is comfortable, we are greeted as friends, and we always feel at home there. The service is attentive but not intrusive, and the food is well prepared and presented. The portions are not huge, but they are enough to satisfy my husband...which... More

I ate at Avellino's last night with 3 friends and we all thoroughly enjoyed our meal. They have a nice selection of wines, beers and cocktails. 3 of us ate veal, which melted in our mouthes. The other person has a pasta dish with sausage which she enjoyed. The best part of my meal was the dessert. I had a... More

We have eaten here several times before- we were very pleased with the food. We had a family dinner to celebrate our daughter's birthday. We started out the dinner by sharing a small cheese pizza. It was over baked- crust and bottom were black. We told the waitress- she said she would let the kitchen know. We next shared a... More

I am very sorry to hear that your meal didn't meet with your satisfaction especially at a special occasion like your daughter's birthday. It surprises me no one addressed the issue with the pizza to your satisfaction. As a family run business, we take great pride in our reputation and word of mouth recommendations and try to do the best... More

On a recent visit, Mother's Day, I had the pleasure of enjoying one of my favorite meals, Veal Zingara. Although this selection is no longer listed on the menu, the very accommodating staff always prepares it. The veal is so tender, you can cut it with your folk. This is only one of three restaurants I will order and enjoy... More

Every time we have eaten here, it has been delicious. My husband loves the pork Osso Bucco and I love the Chicken Scarpiello. The mussel appetizer is great and the Chicken Parm is out of this world!
