Just your very average Italian restaurant. Certainly not the first place that comes to mind when looking for a place to dine out.

Family business with friendly and attentive staff. The main menu is very good, and many of the specials are outstanding. A good value for a great meal.

The place is beautiful, first of all, and decent parking and located on Rt.1 in Fairfield,Ct. But the food was a bit disappointing, given the price. I went again for pizza take-out weeks later. The pizza was pretty good ( coming from this Italian-American), but the sit down dinner wasn't worth the 20 minute wait on a Saturday evening at... More

Ok. That's the entire story. Server was nice enough. Food was nothing special. In southern City onnecticut, it needs to be better. Plenty of great Italian choices. Had the chic parmigiana. It might have been the worst meal. Looked and tasted like frozen. Clams and pasta was pretty good. Fresh clams. Sauce was, ok. Another pasta dish with red sauce... More

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.
