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!

I have been here dozens of times and have never been disappointed. Nothing fancy, but consistently high quality in a freshly prepared meal or pizza. While I have tried several meals and daily specials, I especially like the soups, salads and pizzas. The soups and salads are freshly prepared and always big enough for two or three people. The pizzas... More

After visiting a friend at L&M Hospital , we decided to have a late lunch. We saw The Recovery Room, and the menu looked interesting - falafel, gyros, Mediterranean -style salads. About 2pm, the lunch crowd was gone, and the place was quiet with only a few other patrons. I ordered a gyro sandwich and my husband had a Mediterranean... More

My husband and I stopped by the Recovery Room in New London. We'd moved from the area 10 years ago but had always enjoyed their pizza. We were a bit disappointed to learn the restaurant had a new owner but stayed for lunch anyway. We hadn't had a pizza like this one since we were kids. Crust was not too... More

No matter the time of year or day that I visit, the food is consistently great! The service is good as well - you always feel like you're a part of the family and that you're just a friend coming in to have some good food and relax. I highly recommend sampling the specials when available - the pizzas are... More

The Recovery Room is an Italian-like restaurant located diagonally across the street from Lawrence & Memorial Hospital. The menu consists of various thin crust white and red sauce pizzas, salads, burgers, and numerous Italian-like entrees. There are also daily specials. I strongly recommend the olive bread as an appetizer, which is a very crispy and tasty bread coated with caramelized... More

The Zuppa de Clams appetizer is excellent. Outstanding, thin-crust pizza with fresh toppings. Nightly specials are varied and delicious. Reasonably priced.Best when the owner is there.
