During our national sales meeting in May, we dined at Cugino's on Rt 4 in Farmington, and the dinner was marvelous. We were a group of about 20 hungry sales people, and after being in meetings all day long we were ready for good food, good drinks and good laughs. Cugino's came through for us, big time. Giovani was our... More

I love Cugino's, the owners, the staff and the dining experience. You will always get personal attention and service, and the meals are well prepared and presented. Become a regular at Cugino's and soon it will be your "Cheers" bar and restaurant - Mario, Giovani, Janice and the rest of the great group of people there will welcome you in... More

This is a wonderful Italian restaurant that we have visited many times - never once have we ever had anything that hasn't been outstanding. This trip we had the calamari which is far less battered than most fried calamari and it had a wonderful taste. I also had the "Mario’s Combination" which is a combo of Shrimp, scallops, spinach, peppers,... More

Our second time at Cugino's. We started with the best ever Calamari Fritta with capers, hot chili peppers, lemon and white wine. My husband loves this so much he had a double order as a dinner with salad. Then another salad with a crab-lobster cake. In the meantime, I ordered Grilled Chicken Mediterranean with spinach, mushrooms and truffle oil. The... More

A party of three on the patio. Enjoying the antipasto platter, crusty bread, great wine selection, penne alla vodka, Sicilian Cavatelli w chicken, pesto and sausage, and creme brûlée and gelato for dessert. The chicken was too dry in the Cavatelli but great flavors. Creme brûlée was burned a bit too much but had a rich flavor. Great ambiance. Friendly... More

We picked the restaurant based on curb appeal and were very pleased. The patio offered a pleasant, quiet place to eat in the shade. We both ordered salads because of the heat and humidity. The greek and chicken Cesar salads were generous and tasty. The hot bread was irresistible.

The staff is from Italy. The food is fantastic. Excellent service. Great for special occasions. Old-world dining experience but also pricey.

This is old world style european service, fantastic. Expect to have a leisurely meal (about 2 hours without dessert), it is a great way to slow down your life for a while. Any of the pasta dishes are great, they also make a wonderful filetto and caesar salad is to die for. Any one of the desserts will do just... More

We've been going here for years now, and have never been let down. The menu is a bit pricey for the dishes offered, but that's the only drawback. The service is always excellent, with at least 2 people taking care of you. The lobster bisque is great, as well as the stuffed mushrooms to start. The pasta dishes are very... More
