Good food /odd service. All of our meals were good but the food and drinks came in waves. Between waves was up to a 10 min delay. Otherwise excellent food. Butternut squash, gnocchi, chicken, pasta w/meatballs all good.

My family and I returned for yet another meal while visiting our cadet at the CG Academy. Not to be disappointed we focused on the HUGE salads and delicious pizzas. The calamari ALWAYS is a serious hit as well. How do they do it? Service is fast, friendly, and they try and accommodate last minute reservations. We love the place!

Had a 6:00 pm dinner reservation for two. Was able to get right in...thinking we would have enough time to have dinner before attending an 8:15 pm theater show. Water delivered to the table immediately. Took a little time for waitress to come to table. Asked about the O'Neill Dinner Promotion that waitress was unaware of. She had to keep... More

My wife and I were headed to a different restaurant when we happened to drive down a street we never use. As we did, we saw ThRecovery Room and decided to try it. We are very happy that we made that decision. The owner greeted us and made us feel welcome immediately. Our server , Angela, was very engaging and... More

Favorite for salad, pizza, soup...everything here! and the bread they give you is addicting. You will not go wrong if you eat here. Be prepared for a wait on the weekends. They do take reservations. Make one!

After hearing from lots of people how good the food was, my wife and I tried it out. Great Pizza and that's coming from someone who used to eat all New Haven style pizza. Great Bar and the Asian Dumpling appetizer was good.

Since almost 2 years ago when this restaurant was purchased by a local man who used to be the football coach, it has become the #1 place for Italian food. The pizza are great, the salads are huge and delicious and the entrees can not get better. I have not had dessert because the appetizers, salads and entrees just fill... More

Went there once about 10 years ago. We ordered a mushroom pizza. When it came to the table, there was no cheese or sauce on it. HUH?? When I complained to the waitress, she said, "You didn't order it with cheese and sauce." Since when do you have to order cheese or sauce on a pizza?? I haven't been back... More

Although the pizza was very good (nice thin crust) the salads are excellent with large portions with a nice variety of combinations.
