This restaurant has been on our radar for at least two years now. We finally had an opportunity to try it and were pleasantly surprised. It's nice to live in an area of Connecticut where there aren't a lot of chain Italian restaurants. The family...owned version always gets my loyalty. From the moment our party of four arrived to the moment we left, the service was attentive and timely. The menu offered a variety of soups, salads, appetizers and entrees. The highlights for the starters were the burrata appetizer and imperatore salad with a superb balsamic dressing. Everyone ordered a different entree and the stars were the Bucatini Carbonara and the sauteed chicken dish with hot cherry peppers. The dessert menu had many options and the tiramisu was the hit -- light and flavorful. Our thanks to Andre and Mary for an excellent meal. We will be back and will recommend this gem to others.More

A memorable lunch this June to celebrate my husband’s birthday. The chef knows what he’s doing. Everything about the meal was outstanding — the bread basket was special, fresh green salad with sweet tomatoes. Cod in a luscious sauce with green beans and roasted potatoes....Grilled veal medallions over fresh baby spinach with lemon and a side of pasta aglio e olio. Everything was cooked to perfection. Attentive service. Nice wine list and reasonably priced. Shared the house made ricotta cheese cake for dessert - savored it! Owner Andre was warm and friendly. Can’t wait to return! Highly recommend.More

Stumbled upon this wonderful Italian restaurant today while in Westport. As an Italian I can say without hesitation that this cuisine is the “real deal.” Enjoyed the authenticity immensely and will definitely make the 45 minute drive from Bergen County very soon. Bravo!

The pasta fagioli was excellent. Lasagna very good. Bucatini dish out of this world. Good cappuccino. Disappointed that the cheesecake was not available. Andre was our server. He can still do it!!

The service and food were wonderful; reservations appear to be necessary since it is a small establishment and they are rather busy.

The wait staff were off their game. One waiter kept leaning into me in a half filled restaurant, to reach another table. The food was average, not great. I got the veal with fresh mozzarella, which was good, but the veg was brussel sprouts, which...I don;t eat. The best thing about the meal was the tiramisu for dessert. Overall it was very disappointing. This was our second time, and I don't think we'll be back.More

Maybe 10 tables in a warm welcoming setting, maybe only 30 lucky patrons seated. SO you get that small intimate feeling, with the owners and excellent staff enhancing your experience. Excellent food quality, and you will certainly not leave hungry. Make a reservation for a...weekend night. We have been there a few times and will be back, never soon enough. They have there own small parking area and there is plenty of parking nearby- call them to ask where if you are not sure.More

Always a great meal. Came here before a performance at the playhouse. OMG. Really terrific meal tonight. My husband had the Zuppetta, which has cod, clams, mussels and shrimp. He has this type of dish often, and really enjoyed this take on it. The Farcito,...stuffed chicken,was also top notch. The service tonight was very good. We need to come here more often.More
