DELICIOUS!

Went to App's for dinner for my Mom's birthday in November. It was delicious as it always is. We had our usual appetizer and then we also had special appetizers such as the escargot and mushrooms. I love both escargot and mushrooms, needless to say i was very pleased. For my entree I had the fish... read more

This is a local place where local people go that have been going there for many years. The service was okay. You get a lot of food. Calamari was huge. Tomatoes on bruschetta were huge so they fell off. Vodka sauce was gelatinous. Fra diavolo was spicy and not flavorful. Veal parmigiana was tasteless. My family owned a restaurant just... More

Had dinner at App's and we're very pleased. My husband & I had the prix fixe - a very good value. For apps, clams casino and enough fried calamari for 3! The shrimp scampi was delicious as was the chicken parm. Our daughter had the crushed clam with red sauce over pasta, possibly the best of all three meals. We... More

We have been to Apps several times for family events and the team at Apps always did a great job. The food was very good and we never felt rushed. We have also gone to dine there taking advantage of their prix fixe menu of $20 offered on a Wednesday and Thursday.

Favorites are Shrimp Florentine and any type of fish milanese.- Large portions and priced very fairly. The Steaks are also very tender and delicious. The pasta dishes are fantastic, especially the lasagna.Your meal will start out with hot... More

We always thought of this longstanding fixture of West Haven as a reliable place for good Italian food in a town with lots of Italian restaurants. Our recent meal there was a decidedly mixed bag, from decent to inedible. The fried calamari appetizer was huge and almost as hot as possible. The marinara sauce was very good, with a nice... More

This restaurant is part of old West Haven. Those who have lived in this area remember them from the Savin Rock heydays. They have had a long history of serving great food at a reasonable price. Their Italian specialties are first rate, especially the veal parmigiana. Quite simply...the kitchen just does it right! They have a prime rib special on... More
