“Excellent food, lousy service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013 via mobile

The food was excellent but waiting 45 minutes for the entrees was unacceptable. We were disappointed and we might not be going back.

“Really authentic Italian food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2012 via mobile

That's what it says on the sign and they are not kidding. Delicious fresh homemade pasta, perfectly cooked risotto, delicate flavorful sauces. The chef and his wife are from Calabria, and they make everything to order and with love. They moved out of what used to be little Italy in Bridgeport four years ago, and we just discovered they are here. So glad we did, looking forward to coming back soon.

“We truly enjoyed a group dinner here!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2012

We were joined here by two other couples..good friends we see regularly and one an old girlfriend we had not seen in forty years! We were all in the mood for a fun evening and that is exactly what we had with friendly good servers, good food and the best company. We were most warmly greeted by hostess and seated right away. A nice bread basket and water were immediately provided. We each had an appetizer ..all good..two of the guys had two each. We had Gorgonzola stuffed figs wrapped in prosciutto (I highly recommend), salads, fried calamari, and caprece salad. For entrees two had the chicken cacciatore, one had the eggplant parm special, a veal parmigiana and a fruite de mare over linguini. They will make special dishes upon request if they have ingredients. I asked for a stack of veal and eggplant Parmesan..also very good. I do not know why more restaurants do not offer this dish regularly. Everyone enjoyed their food and the portions were quite large. We arrived at seven and the table was our for the evening. We were there over three hours of great fun, good company,conversation and laughter. A delightful evening for all and a spot we highly recommend.

“Home made taste”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2012

Have eaten here several times. You must get the home made pasta, the best on the menu. A little overpriced for the location and ambiance. Friendly service.

“Just ok”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2012

A cute, clean Italian restaurant in Shelton, CT. A bit overpriced with little personality. The homemade cavatelli and desserts were very good! There was a lack of personality for an advertised family restaurant. That said, average food, average atmosphere, with a fairly expensive bill. Nothing bad, but nothing great.
