This is my first time in Connecticut and I have never had authentic Italian food. This food was amazing as well as the service I will return with my family from Texas.

Irene's is the closest Pizza place to me. I would like to say I love their food but find it average for the most part. The Pizza is good but inconsistent. Sometimes it will be swimming in sauce and not edible, other times it will be spot on (we usually order with light sauce). Their grinders and other food are... More

On a busy Friday night as we were passing through Norwich, we stopped here for our dinner. When a Gyro Plate with Spanakopita was spotted on the menu, my guess that we were at a Greek Restaurant. Waitress was very friendly as since most of the patrons had left; she was very engaging as we were waiting for our meal.... More

Needed food to be delivered after a wake. (We live 60 miles away) Found Irene's on trip advisor. They faxed the catering menu over to me. I phoned the order 48 hours ahead of time. Very helpful on the phone, they explained everything. Delivered and set up on time, ready for the immediate family after the wake. Food was awesome... More

The food and service never vary. It's hot or cold and filling. More than you should eat and not a dish to be washed in sight. Pasta, pizza, grinders and a decent fried fish. Its a good spot for the meal after a sports event or to take mom & dad for their early dinner to be certain they'll have... More

Probably some of the best ziti I've had. They seem to really excel at the baked Italian dishes. Pizza so so.

Was on business in this area and looking for some local flavor.Started driving through town and saw this place. It seemed to be very busy with local traffic. Went in and found a very large menu. After a few i chose a pizza. It was fantastic. I will eat here next time im in that area.
