I visited solo for a relaxing meal, and that's exactly what I found here. Upon entering, the lively bar is on the right, and the peaceful restaurant to the left. I did not hear any noise from the bar where I was seated, and enjoyed...the italian background music. There is a water feature which for some reason is partially obstructed with tables topped with wine bottles. The staff was pleasant, and prompt to greet, serve, and follow up throughout the meal. I had a tropical martini which was not overly sweet, and oysters on the half shell appetizer special. Three small slices of some sort of flatbread were served with olive oil on the side, which was dusted with something - perhaps finely grated cheese but no hint of garlic or seasoning. The server suggested several of the top selling entrees, but I chose one she didn't mention: Zuppa di pesce with garlic and olive oil. It was okay, but needed more garlic and perhaps a bit of fresh basil. The plate was loaded with large calimari rings, not tough but bland, several muscles in shell, a few clams in the shell, and one shrimp. I enjoyed the meal but should have selected one of the entrees the server recommended. I'll be back, and next time will take the advice.More

Last night's dinner was ruined by loud, obnoxious, disco music coming from Modelo's. Why management thought it was fine to subject its dinner guests to that, I have no idea. Why they don't have a door or some barrier to keep the blasting noise from...disrupting dinner guests, again, no idea. So if you're looking for a quiet and relaxing meal, think twice. Food and service was fine.More

Horrible Smell Very Disappointed Made reservations 3 days in advance for 8 people. Upon entering we encountered a weird chemical smell. The staff must be immune to it because they claimed they didn’t smell anything. But all 8 of us smelled it and had to...leave.More

I know we are from NYS, but pretty sure CT has a mask policy as well? Half the people were walking around with no mask, or they were down their chin. And the customers would get up and walk around with no mask, yet the...owner and staff say nothing? The pizza was great. I had a steak dinner that should have been priced around 12.99, but it was $20. No free refills on soda. They waitress was great, friendly, attentive. But No I wouldn't go back second time. How's the mask mandate going?More

I ordered the house salad, penne bolognese and a connoli to go. The salad was very good and quite large even for the small. The penne bolognese was also very good and piping hot. The only improvement would be to add a little more sauce....The connoli was good but not the best I have ever had. I would love to return here and try some of their other food items.More

I stopped by for a takeout during the virus social distancing. Food was delicious! Magical! We had Penne Primavera and Salmon Dijon Asparagus. I couldn’t be more impressed.

The gentleman serving behind the bar could have been more friendly. Most often the “standard” taste of the food goes down better with a smile/conversation from the service staff. No one at the front desk to greet patrons. The “Italian” offerings from the menu were...like warm. The Caesar salad was fine but very small portion. The focaccia served with the meal.. outstanding. I suggest having pizza if you visit for dinner. Convinced you won’t be disappointed as it comes from the brick oven.More

We always enjoy a delicious meal at Bella Fiore. Service and food are excellent. We also love the zabaglione dessert made table side. Always a special treat!

The service, appetizers and service were excellent. Nice atmosphere, very old school. My main course was not very good. Tough veal and a watery sauce.

I would have rated BellaFiore 4☆, but the service was outstanding. Where great service is forgotten today, that is what made my visit stand above other eateries. Good Italian food, good wine selection, full bar WITH decent prices. I look forward to eating there again-next...time I'll bring friends.More

I'm not a huge Italian food person, but the chicken parm was excellent. We met here for dinner with another couple. The food all the way around the table was very good. Wait staff was very attentive. Inside the restaurant was beautiful. It's one of...those places to bring people to.Unlike other restaurants you get treated like "adults". Cloth table cloths, multiple forks, and water glasses, nice wine list and good beverage selection. All at a VERY reasonable cost. The part we liked the best was we were able to talk without having to yell, and we could hear each other....The place was not packed, from what my friend was telling it never is. I'm surprised it's not. A true hidden gem. I almost didn't want to review itso nobody would find out about this place because I will be going back often now that I know about it. It would have been five stars if the staff had offered the dessert cart to us. Three of us had the special, so dessert was inclueded. I found out about the cart as we were leaving. I would have paid extra for something other than a cannoli.More
