Ok neighborhood Italian

I stopped by for quick lunch with a colleague. Sauce for pasta marinara was yummy; pasta itself was under done and I would have loved bread for sauce. Salad for starter was decent, not too much dressing. My colleague enjoyed well made turkey club for lunch. You could do worse.

Great salad and pizza close to New London hospital, hence the name. Good service. Some creative choices on menu. Convenient for hospital visits but worth a trip anytime.

If you like the idea of the Soup Nazi, then this is the restaurant for you. Your waitress will snarl at you, drop your food off as if you are an annoyance, never to be seen again. Beware of leaving an appropriately small tip though. Management allows the staff to refuse to wait on customers that have previously failed to... More

My wife, son and I met up @ The Recovery Room recently on a Friday night. We arrived about 5:45 expecting a wait but we were immediately seated. Our server was very attentive, bread was brought to the table almost immediately. Our drink and then meal orders were taken in a good time. We each had a different pizza We... More

If they served your meals at the same time it would be nice.its almost like they intentionally serve one item at a time

Expected to dine with friends, but.... apps, salads, and entrees came out at all different times. Had to ask a busser or runner about our order because our waitress avoided our table like the plague. At least ten minutes later our server did come to our table, after passing us by multiple times, only to say the rest of the... More

my husband and i get takeout from here almost once a week. My husband always gets prompt and friendly service when he picks it up. I consistently get ignored while the bar staff chats with every other customer and even asks the men who come in behind me if they are picking up food. The female bartenders will look right... More

I have eaten here numerous times. I love your salads! However, whenever I call for a takeout order I am rushed off the phone before I can even finish my order. Then when I pick it up the bartender who interacts with me barely says a word and the last two times has seen me at the counter and chooses... More

Recover Room is a local favorite of ours. Great pizzas and salads....and Arancinis!! Once you try the Arancinis, you'll be hooked. Food is consistent and always amazingly terrific.

I love this little overlooked local gem. The food is tasty. Portions are generous. Establishment is clean and cozy. Service is great too. The Pasta salad with Gorgonzola is to die for and is a meal in itself, as well as leftovers for lunch the next day!
