This is one of my favorite restaurants for lunch, although I am sure dinner is good as well. They have outdoor and indoor seating and a large menu.

My husband and I decided to try D'Amelios after having their catered food. You enter to a warm greeting, followed by excellent service. The giant meatball app was great! We both had pasta dishes which were seasoned beautifully, large portions, definite take home containers! The peach sangria was delicious. Definitely going back again.

Dined there years ago and decided to revisit. Made second seating reservations, specifically asking for a booth on the main level, but was seated upstairs next to the kitchen and restrooms. It was a busy Saturday night, so not a big deal. The server was young and inexperienced, not knowing much about the menu, but was pleasant and efficient taking... More

D'Amelios is one of the heavy hitters in Waterbury as far as good dining goes. It offers traditional Italian dining and great service.

"Let's go to D'Amelio's". That was my first choice when asked where I'd like to go for my birthday. And when my wife and I arrived I was happily surprised that she had invited my parents and my sister in law and friend Al. As we walked in, I received a warm welcome from the bartender, Chris Kane, who later... More

This restaurant offers a nice dining experience by offering two seatings. This means you are not rushed and your food is prepared to order. Nice variety of specials and classic Italian dishes.

Arrived at 6:30pm for a reservation at 6:30pm. Had to drive up and down the street to find a parking spot as there was no parking at the restaurant . Walked a short distance down a side street after parking the car. Walked into the restaurant and a few minutes later we were seated at a table right near the... More

The food is terrific, and the portions are enough to take home for another meal. The service is excellent, and the prices are quite reasonable.

We had Joey cater a repast after a funeral and I could not recommend them more highly!! Food was excellent, arrived hot, and people loved it. Meatballs, sausage and peppers, ziti, salad and cavatelli with broccoli, garlic and oil were delicious. They took care of all the details......serving utensils, plates, forks, knives, spoons, table covers, soft drinks, water bread butter,... More
