The Italia Restaurant is located in a strip mall along Route 7 in Norwalk between the Parkway and I95. Parking can be a bit tight as it is a popular restaurant and the businesses in there can be busy (you can park at the car wash next door after hours).
Décor is decent, nothing fancy. Dining room is rather spacious and they can accommodate private parties for you. Food is traditional Italian. That means very tasty, good value. You won’t break the bank eating at this restaurant. Pasta dishes are consistently good. Veal Marsala is one of my favorites. Baked pasta dishes such as lasagna, etc. are dependably very good.
They do offer specials which are usually very good. Sometimes they miss my expectations but I’ve never had anything that would be below a point scale of 6 on a 1-10 scale. The warm bread served with meals is excellent. The gorgonzola salad is delicious. You can also order pizza and sandwiches anytime of the day. Pizza is available for take-out.
Wines are fairly priced. They serve cocktails. Desserts come from Angela Mia in Norwalk which is a well-known Italian bakery. The staff is friendly, means well, but when they are busy, there can be short delays. When things get a bit confusing, it is probably because they’re very busy and probably a bit short handed. The good thing is that you will not be rushed through your dinner.
