In Danbury for a family weekend, my wife and I arrived on Thursday, and used TA to find a restaurant for dinner. In somewhat of a dichotomy, our hotel’s info sheet indicated that the dress code here was casual, yet the TA description portrayed it...as an elegant, high end restaurant. Both were true. The restaurant was gorgeous, a throwback to an old style Italian restaurant in NYC. Two maitre d’s in suits, all the waiters in white shirts, ties, and suspenders, yet half the patrons in very casual dress, a couple even wearing shorts. But the bottom line, the food was fabulous. I’ve had a 40 year love affair with Carpaccio, theirs was delicious. My wife’s salad was presented as a mound, greens, pecans, cranberries, parmigiano, balsamic dressing, encased in thinly sliced pears. My wife had one of the evening’s specials, salmon baked in parchment paper with herbs, capers, tomatoes. It was great. I went light, a simple sautéed veal dish which was also great. We shared a pineapple topped, rum soaked almond cake for dessert. Everything, decor, food, service were wonderful.More

We loved our special Valentine dinner tonight. Everything was top notch from the beautiful decorations on the way in and roses on each table, to the friendly maître d, to the excellent wait staff. Our meals were so good. We started with a beet salad...with goat cheese and a special homemade carbonara pasta dish. I had the potato crusted halibut with a Dijon mustard sauce and my hubby had o Osso Bucco with risotto. Dinner was finished off with raspberry soufflé for me and chocolate soufflé for my husband. If you're looking to be treated, this is the place!More

Lovely formal atmosphere, great menu and fast, attentive service. As others have noted it is quite pricey. All of the food we ordered was delicious. We had a 5pm reservation and were seated promptly. Tables are not too close together. However, by the time we...left the bar was crowded and it was quite noisy in the restaurant. If that doesn’t suit you, I’d recommend getting an early reservation.More

The Christmas decor was lovely and the service excellent. I had a warm mozzeralla appetizer with roasted red peppers and tomatos that was to die for. The other thing, that may not seem important to some is the staff actually followed instructions. My husband has...a food allergy and often garnishes sneak onto the plate that make us send the plate back. They gave us exactly what we asked for. The only thing is that it is a bit loud.More

I preface this review by saying we did arrive at 5:00 PM on a Sunday, so my review might not hold fast were it for a later time slot. In any case, we were seated at the perfect table, large enough for comfort and small...enough for good conversing. The service was excellent, as was the ambiance. Now to the food: I ordered the fish special of the night, a red snapper prepared piccata. It was excellent, even the next night via doggy bag. A bit pricey, at $39. but definitely worth it if spread over two meals! My dining companions enjoyed their meals as well--veal, duck and a combo of appetizers, which looked delicious on their own. I had heard the place gets very noisy but that wasn't our experience, given our early arrival. Will definitely return. But bring your wallet!More

My husband and I had dinner at Rraci's and I was blown away by the food and the service. The food was so delicious and the presentation was beautiful. We ordered three appetizers: lobster cocktail, mushroom ravioli and spiedino. Even though we ordered three apps...they were light and satisfying and left me excited for my main course. We each had an entree, I had the bronzino and my husband went with the rack of lamb. The fish was so fresh and the sauce on it was so good. I ate every single thing on my plate! My husband said his lamb was the best he's ever had. We also had dessert, I ordered the apple tart and my husband ordered the gelato. It was so good we almost licked the plates and bowls. If you are looking for good food this is definitely the place! Now, let me talk about the service. We didn't just have one waiter, there were many of them. It almost felt like each had a job, one filled waters, one took orders, one cleared the table. Someone always had an eye on our table. When our drinks were low someone was there within seconds to ask if we needed anything else. Every single person we interacted with was extremely polite and so professional. We are definitely going back!More

My wife and i came here for our Anniversary. Though it was a Sunday eve the place was very busy. the owner actually seated us at an outside table and the waiter Endrit was outstanding. Not only does he answer ever question politely and fully...but he never uses a pen and paper and is always bringing us the correct things! He made sure everything was the way we expected and never did our water glass or our wine glass go empty. Our food was delicious and never did we feel rushed. We enjoyed the starry sky and a meal that was memorable!More

This is a truly great Italian restaurant, owned and operated by Albanians. We went with our daughter and her family, and everyone had a fantastic dinner. We started with a cold seafood tower - all shellfish. Lobster, clams, oysters, scallops, calamari. It was a feast...for all six of us. For dinner I had the Linguini Vongole, which was excellent. Lots of clams and great flavor. Everyone had a great meal, great service, and a very acceptable wine list. Can't wait to go back!More

We came here for a special dinner with our family, The place does not disappoint! The food is delicious, service was fine, and they have a vast wine menu. The only caveat are the high prices for the portions served. This, however, is fine dining,...so do not expect the traditionally larger portions served at Italian restaurants. Expect excellent food and higher prices. They are busy, so make a reservation.More

I have no idea how others rated this 4 or 5. The food arrive room temperature or cooler. Orders were incomplete or incorrect. The desserts were near-sugarless. The staff was polite but the prices were fine dining, which did NOT match anyone's meal, and there...were 6 of us. The two good things I can say about the evening was the ambiance was friendly and inviting, and the cocktails. We won't be back.More

Restaurant has a great atmosphere, excellent menu and great wine list. Service initially was good but then had to instigate everything after waiting too long. 1) needed to ask for wine list and menu after 10 minutes seated 2) took 5 minutes to replace a...menu with 2 appetizer pages (no entrees) 3) needed to fill our own wine glasses entire meal 4) wine ordered never appeared but was on bill. Regardless of issues, dinner was fantastic. Could be magical if service issues were fixed. Will be back for sureMore
