Fabulous Italian food

my husband and I had a Groupon for this restaurant so went to check it out. I was hesitant because I am gluten free but was really happy to find that they had gluten free options and that a lot of their dishes could be tweaked as necessary. I had a fabulous dinner and my husband loved his as well.

My daughters and I have been going to Avellino's for years when making a trip to our favorite Italian restaurant in New York isnt't an option. The shrimp - whatever the dish - is outstanding with a flavor and texture like none other. The food is always piping hot and Peter and his family provide unwavering first class service.

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
