Excellent service, ambiance, and Food. Never disappointing.
Great good! Good service. Would definitely go back again
a wonderful italian restaurant with great food as usual
Excellent food and service!
Always a good meal at Diorio’s
Food was prepared in a flavorful healthy way, not loaded with creamy sauces and unnecessary butter etc. very good!
this used to be my go to restaurant it has gone down hill , their wine list is limited where it used to be extensive and the martinis were undrinkable the service was pleasant but i won't be returning
Based on the reviews, I was expecting more. The rolls were dry and stale. The dressing on my caesar salad, other than tasting mildly fishy, was tasteless. The rest was fine but not remarkable. For $90 for two people, one of whom was 3 years old, that seemed steep.
Delicious food. Our server was polite and helpful with food suggestions.
I grew up on Diorio's food and I haven't been in years. My wife and I are originally from the Waterbury area and throughout our teens, twenties, and so on Diorio's was the place to go. However this time we ordered the Cod special and it was totally taste less. The calamari appetizer was good but the salad and desserts were just blah. It's safe to say we were disappointed.
Great fast service...Excellent food and I mean every single time...Excellent restaurant!

Again, we had a great experience at Diorio’s! Our Server Erin was excellent! We will return for sure!
The food was outstanding, as the flavor was bursting from each of the items, from appetizers to desserts. I would highly recommend going and we will be sure to visit again!
Really delicious and nice people
food is outstanding! Old fashioned, fine dining!!
Great spot for meeting with friends for dinner. Our waitress was very attentive, accommodated my request for a gluten free, vegan pasta meal that was not part of the menu, but that was executed beautifully.
great food, professional service, with an atmosphere that is not available in local Ct restaurants.
A great dining experience-a varied menu for the different dietary restrictions on our group.
We have been coming to Diorrio's off and on for a long time. It's always been a special place for us and we've always had a good experience. This was not one of those times. Although the food was yummy, we had many mishaps with our order. Our drinks were tiny, and wrong, our silverware didn't come out with our food, our courses came out at odd and rushed times. Not to mention we are there on NYE and there were people there in jeans and T-shirts, kids in gym shorts! When we walked out the door we were sad to say to each other that we think that's the last time we're going. esp. considering the price.
Outstanding service and every item we ordered was excellent. Food hot and drinks cold!
I got stuck on the highway with traffic called the restaurant to hold my reservation. It was amazing the food was amazing, everything and service just an amazing restaurant. Go Go Go there!!!
Absolutely great! Drinks, Apps, Main Course and Dessert! Great food, Great Value! Will be returning!
All the food was amazing
Nothing really wowed us besides the crab cakes. The rest of the food was somewhat bland, but solidly good. We would go back, but just not out of our way to get there.....
Best meal out ever!! Food was delicious service was very good
I returned to this restaurant after many years. Over-rated and over-priced!!!
After getting our salad and our appetizer, we had to ask for bread and was given
one roll each.....I mean really????
Ordered dessert. We had a piece of cheesecake and a piece of chocolate cake, which
was $24 for the two pieces!!!!!! Had I known how much that would be, I would've told them to keep it!!
NEVER will I return there!!
Basically everything was perfect, except in my opinion I believe the Caesar salad dressing had way too much anchovy which overpowered it.
The servers were not attentive at all. Bread was forgotten. Water glasses weren’t refilled. It was as though they were too busy to attend to tables.
Food just OK, nothing great, menu small, Brussels Sprouts disappointing. Salmon fair, Veal just ok... won’t be back for awhile....
Excellent food and service we will definitely go back for dinner , desserts were delicious and dinner was excellent
Really good food but I would prefer a booth in the bar to any other seating spot. Will request this next time.
Great atmosphere and excellent food. Service is good too. Would highly recommend it -
Food was fantastic. Service was excellent. Nice ambience
Definitely convenient for the area as there are not many like restaurants. I feel it may be a bit pricey but the service and accommodations for special requests and alterations to the menu made it worthwhile. I had the fillet cooked medium probably will ask M Rare next time only if you really like it that red.
Certainly will come back.
Courteous , friendly service; great ambiance .
The food is first rate...great ingredients, beautifully prepared.
The service was excellent as was the food. We will be going back soon.
My food was good but my business associates food was not so great; spinach was bitter, marsala sauce was not as expected; the waiter also forgot to bring my drink and when we reminded him he asked me what I ordered rather than checking his order for us.
The food was delicious and the service, spectacular. I would definitely go again soon.
