5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2014

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.

We came here at the recommendation of a family who enjoyed the atmosphere and food. We were not disappointed. Good, authentic Italian food. If you are looking for place with "modern cuisine", then look elsewhere. Comfortable. Will definitely be backl

I went there on Saturday night with my two daughters. We ordered the Calamari and it was very good, hot and crispy. However, the rest of the meal went down hill. My daughter ordered the Gnocchi and it tasted like hard lumps of potatoes. I have had gnocchi in Italy, New jersey and it should be light and feathery. I... More

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.
