My sisters and mother threw my bridal shower here at App's. The room was huge and accommodated many tables. The food was excellent and it felt like we had the place to ourselves.

A West Haven staple for decades. The menu is diverse with both classic Italian dishes as well typical American and continental recipes. The prime rib on Mondays is a favorite and draws a steady crowd. Sauteed Salmon with green grapes is special and the shrimp Florentine is a knockout. Service is friendly and efficient . Portions are reasonable and they... More

I tried to offer alternatives when a friend recently suggested we have dinner at App's Ristorante. The memory of my last visit here was decent food, but borderline service. There are so many choices in this area, it isn't necessary to settle. I looked at the reviews on tripadvisor, and decided it might be worth one more try, and indeed... More

A great restaurant for a quiet family dinner. The service and food matched what we had been told. The broccoli rabe and chicken tasted just like something my grandmother would have made, which is a compliment. The chicken was so tender you cut it with a fork. The prime rib was beautiful and very big. They even served icebox cake... More

There's lots of good reasons to go to App's. The food's good, prices are reasonable, and some things on the menu are made the same way and taste as great as they did 50-60 years ago. Just ask your waiter what's good, what's fresh, and go for the specials. Or try the calamri, the shrimp casino, the manicotti, the bracioles,... More

In late June, we attended a family wedding at Savin Rock beach...this joyous occasion was further highlighted a couple blocks away with a memorable reception at App's Ristorante in West Haven. The generous buffet served up the most delicious Italian cuisine this finicky reviewer has tasted in a long time. The melt-in-your-mouth filet-of-sole was to die for! The authentic lasagna... More

We had The Special Prime Rib Dinner they have on Monday nights, and the price and food quality is excellent.
