We sat down and fist water was dripping on my head. They moved us to another table. We sat for 1/2 hour before anyone came over to our table. We ordered drinks. One martini was not the right one. I had to take it to the bar myself and have the bar tender make the right one for. The service was awful. I will not ever go back

It turns me off when the waiter doesn’t tell you the prices of the specials. So we ordered one and then found out when we got the tab that it cost $56 or almost double many entrees on the menu. I don’t think that is right.

We went to Arezzo for dinner pre-theatre. They were extremely observant of the time so we weren't rushed and had plenty of time to make it to the show on time. We sat outside on the patio by the water, which was incredible for early October. The food and service were great. I would highly recommend Arezzo to others.

They were nice to try to give us the table we wanted. But then we sat there, with no wine list and no service. We waited a long time before our server came over. We had to ask for a wine list. We were sharing some items and they brought our appetizer, bread and entre all at the same time. Pizza was excellent. The shaved artichoke salad used canned artichokes so that was a cheat and uninteresting. Still, I do like this place. Possibly they were short staffed. There was a huge party on the patio....

Took my elderly mother to Arezzo for a birthday brunch on Sunday and we were not disappointed. Although we sat inside, the large windows were open so we felt like we were outside and had a great view of the river. The wait staff were wonderful and made my mother feel special. The food was better than I expected (although I like it there this was really memorable food) and the restaurant surprised us by bringing a cake with candle and singing to my mother based on my reservation as I didn't ask them to do this! All in all a delightful and special lunch, although a bit pricey due to the specials that we ordered.

well, it took them 1/2 hour(28 minutes) to figure out after they seated us outside that we didn't have a waiter. but that was only after we finally flagged down a waiter and he said "your waiter is working inside and is just really busy and probably won't get to you". So we said, can someone else wait on us or do we need to go somewhere else????? After that they were very attentive but the food was just not great - it was fine - just nothing spectacular. We had been here before with no problems. It was a Saturday night and it was half empty so it makes you wonder if its going downhill.

We were seated promptly at a table outside, as requested, located not far from the scenic river. We had several people attempt to tend to our table (only 3 of us), so it was unclear who our server was. Our first order (a plain pizza for an 8 year old) came out wrong, even though we specifically asked if a plain cheese pizza was feasible. Therefore, we ended up having to purchase an additional meal. The other food ordered was good, although I though the special salad was over priced ($18), especially since it lacked protein. Sans the confusion regarding service, and the meal mix-up, it was overall okay.

Very disappointing. I've been here 3-4 times over the past couple of years. It's a beautiful setting on the water. The food has been good to average and this night it was OK but way overpriced.

When we were told the specials by our waiter, he didn't tell us the prices so I asked. We then ordered two of the specials (even though I thought they were pricey_ and when the bill came they overcharged us by 20% of the already overpriced specials which we subsequently had reversed by the manager.

I would not go back. There have been a bunch of restaurants in this location. The location deserves better fare.

Top Shelf experience on the Saugatuck Riverfront.
I returned the next night and gracious waiter, Hesus, approached with:
"Good Evening, Tito's Martini again, Sir?"
A hint of tasteful Classic Italian music in the background...
Love this place.

Been several times. Love the outdoor seating on summer evenings. The service is very good. Our waiter was attentive and prompt. Ordered the seafood special. Was excellent. And the risotto also excellent.

The entree prices were on the high side. $37 for a fish entree is excessive. While delicious, just too expensive.

Over $200 for three with bottle of Proseco.

We have been there many times. This was for my wife's b'day. Food was very good as usual. Ambiance is what you go for, sitting outside by the river. Where they fail is service. Lot's of staff who are totally disorganized and not attentive. You never know who's your waiter or bus staff. Prices are on the high end and are definitely competing with NYC. A better bet are Tarantino or Via Sorza both in Westport

On a weeknight we enjoyed a quiet atmosphere, attentive service and excellent food. It was perfect for a friends' get-together. We were not hurried and were able to carry on a quiet conversation. While it was too hot to sit outside, the river view was great.

The location and outdoor patio are what brought us here. I love to eat outside on a nice summer day. The food was mediocre with the exception of the pizza, which was the highlight. The seafood salad was tasteless. One of our pasta dishes was over cooked (mushy). The Sauces on the pasta dishes were just okay. This was our second visit this month. Even with the patio I am not sure I will go back.

Food was fresh and good Italian - with fish and veal/meat options.

Wine selection and various price points also good.

Nice to sit outside and look over river.

BUT - what is with wait service these days?! We sat for at least 15 minutes before anyone asked us about a drink order...and then much more time before app/dinner order was placed. After food was finally delivered to our table - our waiter disappeared - and we had to find/request someone to get dessert - and then our check. People if you are going to be in the service industry - try delivering SOME service. There are many dining options in Fairfield county - service makes a difference!
