We tried many places for dinner in the area but I was alway curious about this place especially that the reviews have been favorable. We were a party of 5 for a 5:30pm Sunday dinner and they were not busy. So here is my opinion. The place is small, maybe 30 tables. The greeting was friendly. The service was ok... More

We ate here for the first time last week and had a great experience. The dining room is small, but nicely decorated and comfortable. The place was packed on a Friday night and the staff was running at full speed. Despite that, our server was attentive and got every appetizer and entree exactly right for our group without writing anything... More

This was our first visit and we plan to return. The food was excellent and the service was welcoming, friendly and helpful. For 6 adults and a child the bill came to 280. With drinks and dessert the bill was reasonable. Calamari was good, salad was okay, chicken and eggplant were really good. The Irish coffee was a pleasant conclusion... More

Avellino's is our favorite restaurant! Always excellent food, attentive service, and a pleasure to go there. Prices are very fair. A gem in Fairfield! This is a small family owned business and they try to make all their patrons happy. Veal dishes are very good along with fish. Their desserts a delicious.

A revisit to Avellino's confirmed that they are still on their game. Very good Italian food, reasonable prices and friendly staff. Basically all the elements you want on your night out. The friendliness of Pete (the owner) seems to have been passed down and instilled in their wait staff. You might want to try a small shrimp scampi pizza as... More

This is a welcoming restaurant with nice atmosphere. We enjoyed our pasta dishes but would have preferred more choices of pasta. We really wanted pasta that evening and were disappointed that there was not more of a selection. We were there on a Sunday evening and have no idea why service was incredibly slow. They were very quick, however, to... More

I made a big screw up booking this restaurant on Open Table, selecting a table for 4 rather than 6 on a Saturday night...we got there and the hostess was not very happy but she managed to seat us (very quickly despite the packed restaurant). We had a lovely waitress (yes you "Italian" lady from Brooklyn) and generally great service.... More

We frequented Avellino's many years ago when it was a new restaurant in Fairfield. It hasn't changed. We stopped going to this restaurant becaeu the menu just did not have enough choices for me. While there are a lot of offerings, there's not much to distinguish one from the other. I had Tilapia over a bed of risotto mixed with... More
