My wife and I got together with a few friends for dinner at Avellino's. The restaurant was packed, a clear sign that it's very popular. We had to wait a while for our table, but it was certainly worth it. The food was absolutely outstanding! My personal favorite was the Burrata Salad appetizer (a combination of burrata cheese, prosciutto and... More

We decided to go to Avellino's for the first time. We got there before the dinner rush, and had a comfortable table by the window. The place was packed with a lot of small groups. Everyone seemed happy and satisfied with their meal. We started out with two special appetizers for the day: Fried artichokes which came with a nice... More

Just returned from a wonderful dinner at Avelllino's. The delicious food combined with the gracious service made us feel as if we were personal family guests. It appears that this restaurant is a favorite for many people who appreciate fine and authentic Italian dining.

Peter and his family run a true family friendly restaurant, beginning with a warm greeting at the door. The food is freshly prepared and they will accomodate you with any preferances you may have. Off the menu or daily specials, it's all good.

A Great Italian restaurant on the Post Road in Fairfield CT. The Pork Osso Bucco special was so delicious. Great homemade desserts. First time here certainly won't be the last!!

The food is always amazing; and my husband was actually pouting recently that we hadn't been there in a while. The service is outstanding.

This was our first time at the restaurant. The hostess was lovely and seated us promptly. After that, the service was really sub-par. It took so long for someone to ask for our drink order that we asked to order our meal at the same time. It took an inordinate amount of time for the appetizers to come. (We thought... More
