For the second time in a few weeks I've been for the first time to a local institution in Rocky Hill, both being old-fashioned, family-style Italian restaurants. Like the other, you don't come here for the decor, the romantic setting, or anything trendy. And you won't leave hungry. In fact, you'll leave with the next day's lunch (I'm eating it... More

The food and staff are awesome. It has the feeling of being in Italy. Great selection from appetizers to main course and let's not forget the desserts

Ordered take-out towards closing time. The bar was still active but my food was ready right on time. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Food was very good.

Arrived timely for our 6:00 reservation on a Thursday and the 5 of us were seated promptly. Atmosphere dated but not horrible. Waitress took our beverage and food order and at 6:30 we still had not gotten our beverages. A member of our party used the rest room and noticed our waitress chatting on the phone. Upon prompting we received... More

Last week, I visited DeNovellis for the first time while in town on business. I ordered a 10" pizza with extra toppings for take out. The place had excellent reviews so I looked forward to the pizza. The pizza was prepared very nicely. When I got back to my hotel and tasted the first slice, I was overcome by an... More

They start with olives and peppers with olive oil served with the fresh bread. I was already in heaven. I normally get the Alfredo but everyone told me to get the chicken parm. I can't stop thinking about it. This is an Italian restaurant done the right way!! My son loved the La Bomba dessert. I don't think it is... More

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.
