I made a big screw up booking this restaurant on Open Table, selecting a table for 4 rather than 6 on a Saturday night...we got there and the hostess was not very happy but she managed to seat us (very quickly despite the packed restaurant). We had a lovely waitress (yes you "Italian" lady from Brooklyn) and generally great service.... More

We frequented Avellino's many years ago when it was a new restaurant in Fairfield. It hasn't changed. We stopped going to this restaurant becaeu the menu just did not have enough choices for me. While there are a lot of offerings, there's not much to distinguish one from the other. I had Tilapia over a bed of risotto mixed with... More

We have ordered carry out dinners a few times to take to a cabaret style theater we attend. The food is well prepared, nicely packaged and much fresher than one would expect in a carry out meal. We have also had dinner in the restaurant a few times and have always enjoyed the food. The service staff is friendly and... More

The food was pretty good and the place was pretty nice. They took us on time and the owner was quite nice. I would go there again except the prices were too high for this restaurant.

Had a reservation for four and had to wait 35 mins, the food was very good but it. Was very noisy,very hard to have a conversation. The tables are to close together which makes it rather uncomfortable. The service was ok.

We made reservations 5 days in advance for Mother's Day and received numerous confirmations of the reservation. Upon arrival at restaurant we were told no reservations were under our name even though I showed a VERY rude hostess the confirmation email in my phone. Instead of apologizing, we were met with hostility not only from hosted, but also the owner... More

YOUR ISSUE IS WITH OPENTABLE AND NOT AVELLINO'S!!!!!! Only after apologizing and trying to explain numerous times we did not receive or confirm your reservation and we had block that date. At a certain point I owe my crew and guess their right to enjoy a comfortable and non combative atmosphere. I have to admit I am very surprised at... More

As soon as you walk in the door you can sense that this is an Italian restaurant owned by an Italian family and serve to you by Italians. There are many nice choices on the menu to satisfy many different kinds of tastes we were both very happy with our choices and the cocktails that we had pre- dinner were... More

Had a reservation for four at seven. Arrived on time and told it would be a few minutes. Fifty minutes later we were seated. Being Saturday we waited it out. While waiting a waiter asked if we would like a drink (no bar) which we ordered (two beers and a glass of wine). The four of us thought this was... More

I admit is must be hard to be objective in the review of a restaurant we have patronized over and over and over again over a 15+ year period. We have just returned this day for the summer from our winter home. What is the first thing we think to do?; dinner at Avellino. I tend to order from the... More

My favorite is the eggplant rollatini, my husband's is the gnocchi. We always have a great meal, good service, and the owner, Pete, always comes out to greet each table.
