Diner Reviews
  • "Had a lovely quiet lunch on a perfect sunny, summer day. Service was friendly but not overbearing. Complimentary pizza was simple and paired well with wine selections. Yummy yellow tomato gazpacho with cold, crisp veggies. Perfectly cooked striped bass for me and seafood risotto for my husband which captured the mood and feel of a Mediterranean afternoon. Lovely chilled limoncello to finish while we watched the paddle boarders glide up and down the Saugatuck. A very pleasant find in Westport."

  • "A small group of us sat outside on a beautiful summer night and hoped for a wonderful meal. In spite of our waiter's best efforts, the service level suffered from poor management and organization. We waited about 30 minutes for a glass of wine and then were served our salads immediately. We never got our bread basket, though we received some nice little complimentary mini pizza appetizers. We guessed that was in place of the bread basket, though we noticed some tables had bread. Our food had some flavor, but the salads weren't cold and the pastas weren't hot. Sadly, we left feeling like the kitchen and overall management was being run by amateurs. Could be such a great place if they could get their act together."

  • "This is an outstanding restaurant that serves high quality food with excellent personal service. The new outdoor dining patio overlooking the river is a sophisticated addition to the Westport area. The new pizza oven is a great addition and revised menu is more approachable."

  • "We had an overall enjoyable dinner here, but while the food was good, the service was clueless. Over the course of the evening we ordered still water and got carbonated, had to ask for fresh pepper, ordered wine that took forever to be brought to the table, asked for cream (for coffee) that never arrived and ordered a double espresso that came as a single. When we asked for our check, after finishing dessert, the waiter suddenly remembered that it was a special occasion for us and brought us another dessert with candle. The wait staff was very very friendly and welcoming, which is a positive, but at these prices the service should be more polished. We'd probably return for a quick meal or pizza, but I can't envision returning for dinner."

  • "Made reservations for a Sat. night & requested to sit outside-we're taken to our table-they took us to a table that was with a poor view & slightly claustrophobic so I asked for a different table & they were very accommodating. When our food was delivered it-the servers had no idea who ordered what-we had to tell them-I noticed that occurred at other tables as well.Food was good and enjoyable-after our dinner dishes were removed,we didn't see our waiter for 1/2 hour-we were never offered dessert or coffee-other tables were disgusted as well with long wait times for dinner-service & training is lacking and need huge improvement"

  • "I don't know how this restaurant stays open. Floor vibrated everytime someone walked by, our 4 wine glasses on the table used for serving water were dirty when we sat down (glasses were mismatched & replacement glasses were 2 beer glasses & 2 wine stems! Come on....We ordered white wine and 20 minutes after, we were told it was unavailable. The replacement white wine was served unchilled & warm. The chicken scarpiello was missing the sausage, one salmon was cooked properly, the other was raw & after 2 attempts to cook it to my liking, it looked hacked & unappetizing. A new piece, cooked properly should have been offered. Totally not worth the effort or cost. Too bad because of its location on the river. Spend your $ elsewhere in Westport."

  • "Went on Mothers day so we expected service to be a bit slow but it was really subpar. Took a long time to be waited on and a long time for the food, then the waiter (who didn't write anything down) also forgot our salad and he was never around to ask about it. Then we waited for our check and then had to ask for it again because he forgot.The diver scallop appetizer and two out of the three main entrees (both halibut and snapper) were very good. The Risotto with filet mignon, truffle oil and mushrooms, which the waiter highly recommended, was not. The weather was fantastic so sitting outside by the river made up for a lot. I would go again."

  • "The kitchen knows what they're doing. In my large party, every one remarked on how well prepared and tasty things were, other than the salmon and branzino being served cold ... because they had waited to bring the whole table's entrees ... and the chicken scarp was taking a long time apparently because it was bone-in ... and then oops forgot to put the lamb order in ... etc In truth all the staff was very nice, but missed even simple things like spending 30 minutes before anyone took our order, not a single water refill for the 2.5 hours we were there, never a waiter in sight. It's a shame because the food was superb but bad service will be our standout memory of this place."

  • "We had a 5:45 reservation and arrived on time. We were told that a big party was getting up and that we would be seated momentarily. We waited in the lounge area and, after 10 minutes checked again--still waiting for that big party to leave. No apologies, no complimentary drinks, nothing. We waited another 10 minutes, same answer. Still no apology or drink. Finally, after a few more minutes, we were seated. No one came to welcome us (or apologize for the wait) for at least another 10 minutes. Finally, a busboy gave us some water, but we had to wait longer for a server. Other tables that were seated after us were greeted, but still no love. The delivery and take-away of our food was abysmally slow. The food was fine, but not worth it. SKIP!"

  • "We have dined here a number of times and have never been disappointed in the meal or the service. They have a very extensive menu and now have added a pizza oven and renovated the bar area. The food is outstanding. The staff is polite and very accommodating. I like a restaurant where the menu is so good, it takes a while to narrow it down to 3-4 choices."

  • "I picked this place for a group reservation of 9 the food was very good and we were the only ones there on a Friday night at 9pm. There were a couple little incidents with silverware falling off the plates while they were being cleared from the table. One instance the fork actually broke a water glass and water got all over someone's pants, but it dried... It was just water. I will go back again, I think we all would."

  • "My husband, young son and I booked an early dinner (best for toddler dining). Service was excellent, my only reason in giving 4 instead of 5 stars was that the main courses were served when my husband and son were not seated at the table. Otherwise, stellar service: wine selected for us was perfect; attentive, friendly staff; and a lovely Valentine flower brought to me upon exiting. Food was very good and prepared to our requests."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "The service was beyond bad. Waiter didn't know what had dairy and what didn't, what they were out of and ordered an incorrect meal. We all ate at separate times. The food is good, but obviously there is a lack of communication between the kitchen and the servers to the point where it felt like we were being retaliated against. They pretty much ruined our valentines dinner."

  • "Stay away. Prebreaded and frozen calamari were gross. Chicken scarpariello was like a brown gravy. Valentines day fail. Server was upset when I realized he was only left 18% gratuity. Save your money don't eat there"

  • "Went for my mom's 70th birthday dinner celebration. From start to finish the meal was perfection. The staff incredibly attentive, the cocktails and wine list superb. And the food was excellent. Just amazing. I had the fresh fish of the day which was cooked to perfection with a side fish of truffle mashed potatoes and green beans. Simply divine. Appetizers we also excellent; mini meatballs and the fried calamari and zucchini mix! Dessert was behind. We had a little if everything for everyone at the table. We were there for three and a half hours and the tkme flew by."

  • "Service was very friendly but still polite and attentive. Food was exceptional. Everything cooked to a T. The night we were there I had a vegetable soup which was delightfully fresh tasting, as well as very pretty and visually appealing (which is saying something for a soup!). My partner's scallops for the main melted in her mouth. I had a steak and enjoyed it very much. This was our first time (we went on Christmas Day), but definitely won't be our last."

  • "We had a dinner for 6 at Christmas Eve, with 3 generations. The service was attentive, friendly and stayed ahead of us. Very thoughtful. The food was excellent although I would not recommend the Veal saltimbocca (hard, salty, a layer of cheese topping). But the steaks were extremely good, as were the fish dishes and the risotto. Decent, well priced wine list. Great view of the town from the deck, weather permitting."

  • "I had been to the location previously in different incarnations, but this was my first visit to Arezzo, It was dinner on. Thursday night, so I expected the restaurant to be a bit crowded: it wasn't. But it should have been. A terrific location with a patio overlooking for the river and downtown Westport, a terrific menu with some great specials, and a very attentive wait staff: this is a place that should be very popular, even in Westport. I started with a Caesar salad and ordered the Taglioni Limonati (lemon-flavored Tagliolini with zucchini & shrimp) for my main course. My dinner companion elected specials for her first and main courses, including a spectacular risotto with burrata. Our sever Orlando was outstanding. Arezzo is worth it!"

  • "After getting to our table, we waited 15 minutes before anyone came to take our order. He toke our food order but didn't ask if we wanted drinks? 20 minutes later, the appetizers came!! Well, My husband got his but my was not what I ordered! So another 10 minutes go by, before I got mine! After that we waited again about 20 minutes for our Main course to come! When it came my husband's salmon looked nothing like salmon. I had the grilled chicken that was ok. While we had our dinner we asked for a check and then had to ask again! The service is terrible! The food is far from good! We will never go back there! It is too bad because with the right chef and better service this outdoor dinning could be a good spot!"

  • "This restaurant was nice but pricey. Food was good but 3 of us ordered the $35 filet mignon dinner and we each wanted it cooked differently from medium rare to medium to medium well. we asked the waiter how they would be able to tell the dishes apart and was told the chef would identify them. But don't you know my steak was well done when it should have been the medium one! Our steaks were mixed up.Figures..."
