“Absolutely awesome!!”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

I was dreading going to CT for work. First of all, CT is a beautiful state and the people are nice. This restaurant has loads of charm. The food is probably the best I've ever had. Olive Garden doesn't know what Italian food really is. I've never heard of a long hot before but make sure to try it. Long peppers stuffed with italian sausage drizzled with olive oil. The Gemelli was to die for. Be sure to get dessert, I had the Benoffee pie, which must have been sin on a plate disguised. The service was as good as the food. I hope I come back in the near future.

“Consistently good Italian food”
Reviewed June 2, 2013 via mobile

Consistently good Italian food . Tables are not jammed together but room can be noisy. Not inexpensive but portions are large and shareable .

“Wonderful Dinner”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

Had dinner there after a long drive and it was wonderful and relaxing. We had a drink at the bar first to relax after 11 hours in the car. Moved on to a booth and had a fantastic meal. It was not on the menu but I requested lobster ravioli with vodka sauce that I had last year and they were able to do it. Fresh bread made dipping in the sauce sinful. Hubby had fra diablo tuttimare and he could not stop eating. Service was excellent. Look forward to our next visit.

“Good, but way overpriced”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

No complaints about the service or food, but the price for what you get is obscene. There are better places in Waterbury that are much more reasonable. Try LaTavola for a better meal and better price.
