Seek out this restaurant!
Arezzo was perfect for our family Sunday Lunch (brunch was officially starting up for the season the following week). Our family included 3 grand children, 2 grand parents (myself included) and 4 parents. My husband is on a special diet per Doctor's orders -- and they went out of their way to make a special dish of whole wheat pasta with marinara sauce. He had the ARLECCHINO for starters and loved it! I had the HALIBUT - one of the best I've had. The rest of our party had dishes that included MOZZARELLE TIEPIDA, AREZZO SALAD, FRUTTI DI MARE, and the CIOPPINO DI PESCE. One grandchild had a special pasta made to order -- the other two ordered from the menu and shared dishes. Delicious and well presented dishes :-)

We were very pleased with our choice of this riverside restaurant. The food was better than expected, the service extremely efficient and friendly, with the owner coming to chat twice. We were celebrating an anniversary and felt it was really special. Everything was homemade from the eggplant placed on our table with the bread to the delicious tiramisu. The lambchops, veal and soup were delicious. The calamari was lightly battered and the best ever. Even the house red wine was excellent. It wasn't cheap, but worth the price.

Our dinner was delicious.
Our dinner was delicious. We both had the branzino with escarole and roast potato on the side. A salad as a starter was fresh with the right amount of dressing and a complimentary caponata to start the meal was a nice touch. Service was excellent. There is an outdoor patio overlooking the river, but was too cool the night we went to enjoy outdoor dining. We went on a Sunday evening so the restaurant was not crowded and the noise level was low. We plan on returning to this little gem of a retaurant.

Worth the trip!
Great spot w/ great outdoor dining over the river. Friendly staff that goes out of their way to add to the experience, but careful not to interrupt the experience. Awesome food. Steak and fresh beat risotto special was awesome!

Meet your friends and watch river
Greeted warmly, led promptly to table, plenty of wait staff attention, owner(s) feel like old friends - just a great evening. Looking forward to warmer weather when the deck over the river will be open again.

Second time we were surprised to see a genuine difference. The calamari was very fresh. The pasta was prepared to order and served aldente. Veal passed the cut with a fork test. We will go back.

Right place, wrong night
Our family of four celebrated Mother's Day here Sunday evening. The restaurant was crowded and the wait staff had a little trouble keeping up with the demands of the diners. Food was terrific, chef actually suggested changing an order because he was unhappy with the quality of one of the fish dishes (very unusual and refreshing honesty). Definitely one of the best restaurants in town. I prefer a less harried wait staff. Probably a five on any other night.

Service was not great, but it was mother's day weekend, and they were very busy, so restaurant should not be judged on that basis, as it was our first visit.

Wonderful Celebration for our Grad.
We are from out of town and needed a restaurant that could take a 9-person reservation, with elderly grand parents at an early (6:15) dining hour. The table was waiting for us and away from too much noise or commotion. The food choices were perfect, appealing and different. Not too many places prepare oxtail and the oxtail ragu pasta was a hit! The waiter took his time to explain the vairous dishes and double checked my husband's drink order, which required a specific type of burbon. The food came out in a timely manner and everyone enjoyed their meal.

We enjoyed our first time in Westport at this fine restaurant. So glad that Open Table had good options in this small town

Great Food on the River
Overlooking the Saugatuck River we came to Arezzo for its wide range of appetizers and salads due to the low 90s temps. The scallop salad was a delight along with Beet and Goat cheese salad. Rita and the serving staff were excellent and kept our water glasses filled.

Great food and ambiance
We had a wonderful time, the food was outstanding. We also loved the specialty cocktails and limoncello. Reserve a table outside for an unforgettable evening along the Saugatuck River- truly a special spot. Everything on the menu is made with care and prepared with love, you won' t be disappointed. The service can be a little slow, but when you have such a great view- what's the hurry?

Great dinner. Where is everyone?
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!

Great night on the Saugatuck River
Indian Summer led us to this Italian restaurant on the Riverside Ave, the outdoor terrace and the excellent wait staff along the authentic well seasoned food. We could have been in Italy and the river could have been the Arno. We will be back
