When our sons are home from college, this is their favorite spot for Italian dining. The portions are very generous - especially the chicken parm which is what they get every time we come here. The side of pasta is served with a vodka sauce which is amazing. The meal starts with fresh bread and foccacia with olive oil on... More

Haven't been there in awhile, but when we went, we went three times in a month or so. Why? Superb food and great comfort. Super staff and food your grandmother would ask for seconds of. Yeah. That good.

We recently had a party and needed some food so we went to our usual spot, DeNovellis in Rocky Hill. The calamari went quickly, and everyone loved it! The baked stuff shrimp were good, but a little small. The chicken francaise was also a solid choice. Price was reasonable.

We have dined often here. Food always very good. Menu selections and specials offer variety. Service always good but used to be slow. New location nice. More spacious. However, cheap shot of the day was when we saw the standard complimentary plate of roasted pepper slivers and cheese wedges sans olives (that always used to be there). And, the plate... More

The veal, macaroni and clams are my favorites and are always great. Prices are very reasonable. Nice menu with many options. Can't wait to visit their new location.

I and family members have been dining at DeNovellis for several years and always look forward to returning. I have to admit that we are "fussy" diners and have always had a wonderful meal there. Excellent staff, chefs, meals and wine! We discovered an off menu item "tableside pasta" which is simply outstanding. My wife frequently orders an off menu... More
