Great dinner! 7 of us just visited DeNovelli's this weekend for dinner. Appetizers, dinners and drinks were delicious! Large menu with traditional Italian food and most dinners come with salad and sometimes pasta. Our waitress was very friendly and attentive. Will return!

Denovellis has been in Rocky Hill for many years. It’s the place to go for real Italian food. For us it’s the place to go for dinner before a movie or play. We try to eat there at least once a month and have never...More
