Had a wonderful meal at this dinner meeting. Food was tasty and the service was great. Had an outstanding sliced beef dish that I would certainly Oder again.

We have had lunch here nearly annually over the past twenty years on trips to NY and NJ. Last week we visited again and had an enjoyable lunch, although the service was slow and irregular. We had a few of the blackboard specials, which we normally do and which are always prepared well. Both white sauce and red sauce dishes... More

Cinzano's has been a Fairfield landmark for many years, based on the quality of the food, as well as the attentive, relaxed service. When you go to Cinzano's, be prepared to have a nice, relaxing time - they definitely don't rush you there. I have been there many times over the years - with family, with friends, on dates, with...

What a gem this once was. I'm so sad to write this, but I feel that my former review is misleading people. While the food is good as always, the interior has become shabby, the service is lackluster at best (some of the staff is just NOT nice), and the party that we had planned there for weeks was forgotten...

For real Italian food the best restaurant by far is Cinzano's on Black Rock Turnpike in Fairfield. I had the honor of working with Patsy Santangeli many years ago in a machine shop in Milford. He also worked at Real Estate at the same time. He was also a wonderful family man who sent one of his son's that I... More

Went there for a midday Sunday birthday dinner for my 87-year-old mother-in-law. We were 4: my husband, mother-in-law, grown daughter and me. Walked in and there was just one table of diners, but we could see they were preparing for a private party in an adjacent room. They seated us, brought us water and took our drink orders. Then nothing.... More

Went here for the comedy night, to be totally disappointed with the process of this dinner/show. We were told to arrive at 7ish (which we did) and ordered drinks...fine...so far so good. Well, the buffet style dinner did not come out until well after 8:30, which was when the show was supposed to start, so all of the other people... More

Honestly had better hopes for this place. For the prices I would have expected better quality ingredients in the food. I just don't know how else to put it. For the prices I would have expected a bit better. Probably won't return.

When I am in the area, Cinzano's is my "go to" location for meeting up with friends for lunch or dinner. During my most recent trip, there was a huge rainstorm. We were sitting by the window and I noticed huge puddles of water against the brick and seeping into the dining area all along the length of the window.... More

First discovered this restaurant on a friend's recommendation about 10 years ago and were fortunate enough to be in the area again tonight. It's as good as we remembered - wonderful warm bread basket with both oil and butter options (meets both our preferences!), choice of salad or pasta, and delicious entrees. Good house wines. The modest exterior (next to... More
