The setting was unique and very pleasant, the service was exceptional and the food was delicious. My wife and I had two versions of the veal marsala, our friends had two of the pasta dishes. They...

Was in Peoria for a collegiate event over the weekend and was searching for a restaurant for dinner for a group of friends. I could not have chosen more wisely! While Connected's location was a bit quirky once inside its a distant afterthought. From the young lady on the phone taking my reservation to our servers Chandler and Vanessa the... More

My husband and I had dinner at Connected this past Thursday, March the 30th. WOW! WOW! WOW! What a fabulous dinner. You walk into a darkened restaurant with small lights in the celing representing stars, and walk into the dining area which is like a street scene in Italy, with fresh flowers on the table and Tony Bennet singing in...

We had a nice dinner. We had the salad and the soup as starters. The salmon and the 4 cheese veal. They were all excellent in particular the mains. Reservations only by phone I think.

This intimate moonlit Italian restaurant is very interesting. Upscale taste of Italy in a great location off university. The food is also delicious and amazing. A great place to meet friends or celebrate a special occasion. Get Connected the next time your out on the town in Peoria.

My wife and I were blessed by a wedding gift card to Connected! We were pleasantly surprised by the quaint ambiance of Connected with its recreation of an Italian street walk inside. My wife had the Chicken Marsala while I had the special Boar's Sausage Rigatoni. Both meals came piping hot to our table which shows how prompt the service... More

Why did I wait so long to visit Connected. I had heard that it was very good, but never remembered it when considering restaurant choices. Went on a date, was impressed with everything. The servers were professionals. Some of the best I've had in the past decade. The food was incredible. Had a special Fish of the day. Very good.... More

My boyfriend brought me here for our anniversary. The minute we walked through the door I was impressed. Beautiful decorations, gorgeous water fountain.. we came on a Monday so it was very quiet (which was perfect for us). We had a lovely bottle of Italian wine and I got the lamb & polenta / he got risotto I believe. We... More
