Welcome to Elizabeth's Bar & Restaurant, serving customers Italian American food with a Brazilian flair since 1998! Conveniently located in the heart of Rocky Hill, Connecticut, our roomy bar and dining room provide a spacious but warming atmosphere, highlighted with yellow walls and ornamented with classic Italian art. Elizabeth's features a continental cuisine that takes a slant towards Northern Italian fare with affordable prices and liberal portions. From Portuguese dishes to Italian House favorites, lovers of fine culinary treats will be delighted with the array of offerings, including grilled mushroom ravioli, giobatto, eggless carbonara, sauteed chicken, and gamberetti piccata. The baskets of breads are accompanied by basil pesto and roasted-garlic-infused olive oil which is a pleasant addition. Nearly all entrees can be made gluten free to accommodate guests with dietary restrictions. Whether settling in for a fantastic business lunch, enjoying a romantic dinner followed by an espresso, or spending time with the family, Elizabeth's Bar & Restaurant is the place. Contact us for reservations and private party availability on Sundays. We look forward to having you, your family and friends dine with us soon!

Not sure how many original comments I can add to what's here...as the other reviews say: --hard to find in a small strip mall on a dark road...but is only a block from the exit on 91. --not fancy, not overly expensive, not quiet, not great but perfectly nice. --huge menu (I appreciate the rare nice selection of veal dishes)...

The dining area is two rooms divided by french doors. The ceiling is open so everyones voices carry and echo throughout the room. It was crowded the night we went, and it was so loud, you could barely hear what the person next to you was saying, let alone hear the wait staff. The menu had a good selection of... More

The decor is much improved, but still looks a little industrial. The service is competent. The food is good -- not great, but there is a lot of it. The crowd tends to be older, but there are a lot of repeat customers. The value is improved if you can snag a coupon in one of the local coupon books.... More

Located in an unassuming strip mall, the restaurant is easily missed. From the outside it's nothing special but the food and service are excellent. Nice bar area in front and we had a business meeting in the private back room with 40 people and the appetizers and dinner we're served buffet style but each dish was worth going back for... More

Uneven experience. Server was friendly and restaurant has a large menu. Not many customers on a Wednesday night. My companion's mushroom ravioli were very good. My lamb chops, though plentiful, came swimming in brown gravy and were rather tasteless. Perhaps one should stick to the pasta. Do not think I would go back.

Paulo D, Owner at Elizabeths Bar & Restaurant, responded to this review

I'm sorry to hear that our lamb chops did not meet your expectations. A lack of flavor definitely isn't something that's typical of our restaurant, and we'll work hard to make sure it doesn't happen again. I'm happy that you were able to try another dish and that you thought it was very good! We have a large selection of... More

Try this place. It's good. (But the menu on Trip Advisor as of 8.28.14 is wrong, so go to their website to see the true menu.)

This is not your typical Italian restaurant. The menu offers a blend of portugese and Italian dishes, great appetizers especially the escargot. Definitely worth a visit!

This is a quiet restaurant offering primarily Italian dishes. It was some distance from my hotel, but the food and service were very good. Well worth the drive.
