“I was pleasantly surprised”
Reviewed June 9, 2012

We were greeted warmly and immediately shown to our table.
The restaurant was noticeably clean. A basket of delicious warm rosemary focaccia bread was promptly delivered with olive oil. We ordered two gorgonzola salads to share amongst four people and, despite the fact they were excellent, we couldn't finish them because they were so large. The pasta entrees were fresh and flavorful and the pasta was cooked perfectly al dente. The sausage pizza, to which we added mozzarella cheese, was also excellent. The staff was genuinely friendly and worked well together. The molten lava cake was satisfying for the chocolate lovers in our group. We are happy to have discovered this gem of a restaurant in our back yard.

“best food in New London”
Reviewed June 5, 2012 via mobile

ate with friends in this local watering hole last night. The pasta dishes are perfect. The salads were world class and the staff was friendly and very attentive. Great variety of dishes include veal, fresh seafood, and white and red pizzas. Portions are enormous so show up hungry or take half of the delightful fare home for later.

“Best Salad Around”
Reviewed May 25, 2012

Pizza, bread, sandwiches - great; salad is fantastic. Hard to find good salads but this place has them - tasty and large. Crowded and fun. Have never been there when all did not enjoy their food.

“Where Everybody Knows Your Name”
Reviewed May 1, 2012

Our go-to place for a quick week night dinner for a "before the movie" dinner on weekend. Luigi is a fabulous chef, and he sources his ingredients carefully. The owner knows you if you've been in a few times.... the waitress know you as well. Many dinner choices. Have also been there for lunch, and they do a beautiful job on something as simple as a sandwich. We've been going there for 28 years under two different owners, and our lives would be much the poorer without the Recovery Room.

“Amazing food for eating in or taking out”
Reviewed April 26, 2012

No matter if you are in the mood for Pizza, Pasta or Salad, you can't go wrong at The Recovery Room! We eat their food regularly (twice in the last week) and always have a tough time making a choice because all their dishes are delectable. Some of our favorites are the Calamari, the Asian dumplings, the Spinach and Gorgonzola Pizza, Ed's BBQ Chicken Pizza, the chopped salad, the Cesar Salad with blackened shrimp, the Chilean Sea Bass, the Chicken Parmesan....well, the whole menu! Excllent service and your food will be on the table in no time! The owner is in the kitchen, so this is a very well run restaurant! This is a must if you are in the area!
