I have been dining at Avelino's for fifteen years. Every dining experience is equal to one another. The staff is friendly and attentive and sure, there are times when the place gets busy, but the results are always excellent. The food and quality are right up there with the best if you want good old fashioned "Homemade Italian" with a... More

Great place to have a delightful meal. The salad had a really good vinegar base, one of the specials was homemade cavatelli but I wanted it with sausage and San Marzano tomatoes (which is on the rigatoni) - my wish was granted and it was wonderful! If I had a last meal wish - this would be it :). Staff... More

What a great time we had! The staff is attentive, the owner made us feel like family, and the food was great. The menu has lots of yummy dishes - I had the Gamberi al Limon (shrimp with a wonderful lemon sauce, served with saffron risotto. Dessert was a wonderful hazelnut confection with whipped cream and raspberry sauce; perfect ending... More

Was surprised to learn that Avellino's has been in business more than 20 years. Originally opened as a pizza/pasta place they've expanded the menu and remodeled the bar and dining area. Truthfully, their food was not bad; but it's also nothing to write home about. Just another Fairfield County "pretend restaurant'; which makes for just average dining. However, after being... More

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.
