Excellent Allergy Friendly Food

Elizabeth's Bar & Restaurant has very good food. The food is mostly Italian and there are many gluten-free options. The service was also exceptional. Right across the street from Residence Inn Rocky Hill-where we stayed.

My wife and I had received a gift certificate to Elizabeths in Rocky Hill and finally decided to use it. We were quite pleasantly surprised with how good it was. We were there a few years ago but things have changed. For appetizers my wife chose calamari with marinara sauce and I had the escargot scampi. The calamari was exquisite,... More

Friends introduced us to Elizabeth's many years ago. Since then we have eaten there many times.

Elizabeth's is a good place to eat for dinner. The Italian food is authentic with good sized portions. The last time we ate there we brought leftovers home. The service was also excellent. Highly recommend.

Friendly, attentive staff, delicious apps, wide range of entree choices with a Brazilian-Spanish flare. Bring an appetite!!! Generous portions of wonderfully seasoned, delictable food.... Family oriented, people always seem happy who venture there... Tasty desserts, well balanced, affordable wine selection... Well worth the visit!

We eat at Elizabeth's quite often -- perhaps twelve times a year for business luncheons and an equal number or more for dinner. This past Saturday night we went and were seated at the last table by a door marked "Private", from which we quickly realized was leaking abundant quantities of freezing cold. I pointed this out to the hostess,... More

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.

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.
