We eat at DeNovellis's every chance we get. The food is hands down the best around. It is a family owned business and the wait staff have been there forever. Enzo the owner and chef brings authentic Italian to CT. You must try this place out when in the area. It is one of those hole in the wall places... More

We had a tip from a friend four years ago, surprised we had never heard of this high class family restaurant years before. Best Italian food in the area, in my estimation. Appetizers are excellent, but so easy to fill up on them, before the main courses. Share the appetizers, because they are too good to skip. Portions generous. We... More

This is a great neighborhood restaurant where you can always get a delicious meal. This would be a great find if traveling on Route 91 with easy on/off access and not far off the hightway. Our favorite Italian restaurant.

We've been here many times but once we tried the eggplant, we stopped ordering it elsewhere. It's like lasagna made with eggplant instead of pasta. Terrific!

There are no bad choices on the menu and everything is offered fresh, generously portioned and reasonably priced. The food, service and atmosphere are top notch. No bad choices on the menu. Will be going back soon.

Every time a crowd pleaser!! Family friendly, classic Italian food- we love starting the meal with the warm complementary bread, cheese and roasted peppers !! Portions are huge and we always end up taking half of it home. Some of our favorites are penne vodka, chicken nona, and the Chilean sea bass when it's on the menu!!

Haven't been in awhile. It hasn't changed since my last visit. The entrees are solid representations of home style Italian classics. Service was ok but not spectacular.

If you're looking for really good Italian Food, De Novellis is the place to go. I met a friend for dinner last night and was very happy with my "Chicken Enzo" entree. At XMAS, for the first time in history, I ordered from their catering menu. My Italian Family loved the eggplant and chicken marsala. Having food catered from De... More

This is a great little restaurant for Italian fare. The prices are similar to others in area. We have come for lunch and dinner and have never been dissapointed in our meal, or the service.

Denovellis Family Restaurant has the best veal in town, and the best veal i have ever had! But don't stop with the veal. Enzo Denovellis and his staff make sure you are never disappointed in anything on the menu. Excellent service, atmosphere and warmth. Have been there many times. When our son got married, we went to Enzo to handle... More
