  • "Il Sogno never disappoints, from their pastas, soups, salads & fish/meat dishes, you cannot have a bad meal here. I am a huge fan of Il Sogno and consider it one of the absolute best restaurants in the Westchester/Fairfield area. Keep on doing what you do so well Jimmy!"

  • "The appetizers were very good - especially the calamari. The pasta entrees were also good but we found them a bit salty for our taste."

  • "After being seated promptly, it took at least 6 or 7 minutes before someone came over and hand us menus. The restaurant was not busy. It was the manager (owner?) who finally told us the specials and gave us menus. After that everything went smoothly. It was a long list of specials. We had a tough time deciding what to choose. We split the eggplant lasagna (no noodles) as an appetizer. It was very good. Nice layers of eggplant, cheese and a flavorful sauce. Our entrees were just as good. I had a nice size bone-in tender pork chop smothered with peppers, onions and mushrooms. Yum. Husband had homemade pasta with veal ragu. He enjoyed it but would have liked more pasta. We are looking forward to visiting Il Sogno very soon. "

  • "Had eaten here several times before and liked the food, while the price was reasonable. However, they only offered a special "Mother's Day menu" on that day and it was extremely overpriced. Disappointed with that!"

  • "We've been here 3 times now and it is always excellent. Great service, delicious food. You have to try their special white truffle pasta. We split one portion 4 ways as a pasta appetizer, it is amazing! Enjoy..."

  • "Best Italian food you could hope for outside of flying to Italy for a terrific meal. If you like eggplant, try their eggplant lasagna; like soups? All of their soups are wonderful, as are their salads. And all their pastas, especially the one with the truffle sauce! Yum."

  • "We were so impressed with our visit on a Sunday during restaurant week that we returned the nextSaturday. We began with the pear gorgonzola salad and it was very good. I ordered flat pasta with shrimp and small scallops. It was delivered with a small portion of the pasta and ten baby scallops - no shrimp. I brought it to the attention of our waiter who did not return to our table until the end of the mear. He apologized and said the must have made a mistake in the kitchen, but that was it, so I paid a hefty price for a scant meal that was not consistent with the description on the menu. I was very disappointed and frankly, if not for this incident, Il Sogno would have been our new favorite restaurant."

  • "It would be very easy to drive right past this amazing restaurant, and it would be a very big mistake. The staff is as professional as any of the best restaurants in NYC, and the food is over-the-top delicious. The menu is creative and the chef clearly knows how to cook, and must love his job, because this si some of the best food I've ever eaten. Do yourself a favor and go eat here...now!"

  • "although it doesn't look that great from the outside the food is very good and seasoned well, not to mention that the waiter was very polite and honest . the short ribs are to die for so was the salad. ."

  • "This is my favorite restaurant for lunch or dinner. Whatever you choose from their extensive menu it will make you happy you did....nothing has ever disappointed. Salads, soups, pastas, esp. Eggplant lasagna....finest Italian in Fairfield and Westchester County!"
    Dined on 3/18/2014
  • "A fabulous neighborhood, hidden gem, in a part of town no one expects such superb food! Their menu is sensational and the food never disappoints. Jimmy knows everything you order in his head, and if he recommends something, have it, excellent chef and place."
    Dined on 3/18/2014
  • "We decided to return to Il Sogno because it's Restaurant Week, and ordinarily the price range is a little beyond our budget. We had an extremely satisfying experience. The food was excellent! I hope that Restaurant Week brought and rewarded many new diners because, frankly, another reason we have avoided Il Sogno is that no one ever seems to be there. Maybe being nestled among Dunkin Donuts, MacDonald's, Burger King, and gas stations is not the most propitious location for an upscale Northern Italian style restaurant."

  • "I love Italian food and a few years ago, my girlfriends 60th was held here. I was so glad to be introduced to this Italian gem. I grew up in this area and had driven past it a million times but never eaten here. What a delightful surprise. Probably the best Italian food outside of Italy! And I worked for Gourmet magazine, so I know good food! This is great, and you must have their eggplant lasagna: out of this world. And their soups too. And everything else! Lol."
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "This was 2nd time at Il Sogno. I've only had lunch there, but the food is excellent and the service is very attentive. There were only about 4 tables of people in the restaurant, so I don't know how the service would be if it had been very busy, but I loved it!"
    Dined on 3/12/2014
  • "Best Italian food in Westchester County. No contest. When it comes to soups, salads, main courses, you name it, this kitchen turns out the best Italian food in the county, night after night, day after day. Their eggplant lasagna is my favorite dish here, and I never tire of it....their soups are first rate and they add extra touches at the start of your meal and to end your meal that are delicious and first rate."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "The specials always sound & taste so good, you don't even need to look at the menu! Their veal martini is the best in the county! You can't go wrong no matter what you order."

  • "Very good food (all 4 of us ordered specials) in a nice dining room. Friendly, helpful service. On site parking. Not crowded at dinner except on weekends."

  • "From the outside, you would pass right by this spot - but you will regret not giving it a try! While it looks like a converted drive-thru restaurant (and its roots probably date back to something like that given overall area), this is a true local gem. Food specials of the night - from a broccoli rabe soup with a potato base (no cream) to the linguini with truffle sauce that we shared at our table, to the special veal milanese chop (pounded and prepared deliciously; enough to feed 4!), everything was delicious. Service was great, including the menu offerings outlined by the owner at the outset. We did not even need to open our menus. At we were given a great suggestion for an Italian red wine that was decanted at our table!"

  • "Am regularly dining here on a weekly basis as I think their food is the best in Westchester/Fairfield County for Italian. Staff is great too .service excellent! Their eggplant lasagna is one of the greatest Dishes ever!"
    Dined on 1/29/2014
  • "The food was just so-so. The eggplant lasagna appetizer was the best thing we had. The waiter speedily named about 15 specials -- 2 soups, 2 salads, 2 other appetizers, 3 meat entrees, 3 pasta entrees, 3 fish entrees, etc. and THEN hands you the menu. It's too much, too quickly! The staff is efficient but not friendly. The atmosphere is "traditional Italian" and a bit tired. Overall, not a great dinner. Won't be back."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "Casual dinner here January 25. Very light crowd for a Friday night, restaurant probably half-full and almost nobody at the bar. Location probably works against it, because although it's in a great spot as far as vehicle traffic, it shares an intersection with a McDonald's and Dunkin' Donuts so perhaps many folks don't take it seriously and give it a try. Our waiter real golf so many appetizers and entrées specials that we almost couldn't keep up, but suffice it to say that there something for anyone's preference. From our greeting at the door to the martinis at the bar, to the casual atmosphere, solid attentive service, and varied menu... We would definitely recommend this gem in Port Chester."
    Dined on 1/24/2014
  • "This is one of our favorite local restaurants. Each time we come there are more than a dozen specials, recited with great detail by the very competent waiters. There is a variety of pasta, meat, poultry and fish dishes from which to choose. I highly recommend!"

  • "Love their menu and my favorite Italian dish ever: eggplant lasagna. The best. Their salads are great as are their dishes with pasta, meat and/or fish. One of my fave places!!"
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "chose this restaurant because the reviews were all very good. Was surprised that the place was quite empty on a Friday night - maybe due to the holiday weekend. The wait staff was attentive. Extremely long list of specials - would have been better if there were printed and left at the table - too many to remember. Our friends got there early and sat at the bar for a drink - no wine by the glass at the bar, yet we were able to order wine by the glass at the table. That doesn't make sense to me. We all had salads and fish - very pleased with our meal. I would go back if I wanted a very quiet place to dine."
    Dined on 1/17/2014
  • "The pasta with truffle cream and veal shank were outstanding and the sole excellent. Lovely waitstaff. Not very popular on a wintery Friday - perhaps due to the odd location on the Post Road strip. Look forward to exploring the menu on return visits."
    Dined on 1/10/2014
  • "The food at this local gem is outstanding. Eggplant parm is out of this world, as are their soups, salads, fish dishes, to say nothing of the pasta dishes. Love this place and the guys who tend to you at your table are wonderful. First rate!!"

  • "We came across Westchester county to have dinner at Il Sogno because it meant an easy trip for our Connecticut friends. We weren't disappointed. The dining room is small but feels a bit larger because it's a perfect square. The servers were informal but helpful, our server being an outstanding exception...he knew the menu inside out, made recommendations which turned out really well, and was not intrusive (never even told us his name, we had to ask!) We had a couple of great appetizers on the specials list: pasta-less eggplant lasagna, which melted in your mouth, a composed salad of cannellini beans, tomato, onion, cucumber which arrived molded as if in aspic but blessedly NOT. The kitchen made risotto "any way you want it.""

Our server knew the menu perfectly and he was so attentive to my allergies. He was truly above and beyond. The burrata appetizer and stuffed mushrooms were delicious as well as the tuna carpacio, so fresh. Pasta with truffle oil was amazing and the oso buco special was great. We will definitely be going back and bringing more friends with us."

What we especially liked was when we arrived they served our drinks and did not rush us with the menus. I would recommend this restaurant highly."
