The pasta, chicken Milanese and short rib entrees were incredible meals for each of us. The misto fritto, frisee, and Brussel sprout appetizers also we’re great and the service and timing was perfect.
always consistently great food and service. happy to recommend.
Friendly, attentive service,
Seasonal specials included a fettuccini with lobster in a creamy tomato sauce that was scrumptious!
This was our first time here and we brought friends. Everyone cleaned their plates! It is so quaint and the view is amazing overlooking a stream with cute ducks! Loved it and will be back!
Delicious brunch and wonderful service and atmosphere. Baldanza could not be more charming. The owner came to our table and chatted, so nice. The view of the Norwalk river is so beautiful. Can’t wait to go back. We are going to have them cater a party for us too.
So happy to have such am awesome restaurant back in the Schoolhouse!
The best gem that combines great service, incredible food, and wonderful cocktails. You don’t make places like this anymore! And the staff is first rate all around.
Went back for the first time since the new owners took over. The ambience was still very nice and the food was outstanding. Back at the top of our list of go to restaurants
Had an excellent meal and experience at Baldanza for my wife’s Birthday— felt special and memorable !
I particularly loved the beet salad—
It’s always wonderful...The food and the staff!
Thought it was over priced for what it was
We are coming back! So nice to see this old favorite thriving under new ownership. Our book club had a great Sunday brunch meeting and we want to come back for dinner.
It is always an outstanding experience ! The food, staff and ambience are A+
Everything we ordered was simply delicious and the staff was incredibly welcoming and attentive. We will definitely return with friends.
Beautiful & cozy setting for a delicious meal and food that was prepared with excellence & love. Also, a great experience with the staff. So, kind, gracious and even remade my drink when it didn't come out right. We loved the warm brussel sprout salad. The papparedelle bolognese was so tasty. Desserts, drinks were fantastic too. You should definitely try this place for a romantic date or family special celebration.
A wonderful experience. I look forward to returning.
Terrific brunch in a lovely setting!
Excellent service, not rushed, and nice atmosphere. Food was terrific and adequate options on wines.
It was A + all around!! Food, service, ambience were all great.
EXCELLENT food, service and presentation as usual! Always a pleasure.
One of the best restaurants around! Staff and owner are delightful. Food is consistently delicious.
Great experience from start to finish! Looking forward to going again, fantastic menu!
Fantastic. Loved it.
Everything was amazing, especially the homemade pastas!
Great to see a frequently evolving menu. Great service as always.
Great new menu looking forward to our next visit.
It’s a very intimate space with great food. Service was excellent. This is for people looking to eat over a long dinner and not a place where you feel rushed.
Great night with friends, good food, attentive service in a small, cozy setting.
Pleasantly surprised. Food outstanding Service attentive
It is a small space and restaurant was full so it was noisy. Food was good, service was good and we had a great time with friends.
The owner was convivial and attentive, the food tasty and creative and the setting charming. We started with a delightful tuna crudo followed by a lemon shrimp pasta dish that was light but filling. We will return again soon.
Wonderful food and atmosphere. Would recommend to anyone
The standard Baldanza affair (like their New Canaan cafe) in the nice Schoolhouse setting that we miss. We are very happy to see the our favorite old Schoolhouse waiter. Unfortunately the shock came when the bill showed a $9 espresso! We had two…is inflation so bad or am I missing something.
Food was amazing, excellent presentation. Staff is super friendly and we follow Lauro recommendations and we were not dissapointed
Ambience is really nice
The BALDANZA at the Schoolhouse team continues to offer amazing food, incredible service in a beautiful Classic New England setting . We had the special fish of the day rainbow brook trout, which was perfectly prepared and a n amazing New York strip steak. Hard to find better!!
Night before Thanksgiving -- so it's possible they were understaffed. Apps were great. Entrees were very slow to arrive -- at least 45 mins after appetizers. Every entree (duck special, pork chop, halibut) but one (butternut squash ravioli) were overdone and slightly cold. Tasty preparation, but overcooked. Wait staff didn't really keep us informed as to the delays, bring any bread to tide us over, or offer a drink. Usually love this place, but tonight it was just OK.
Lovely location and ambience. Food was tasty and service was great
We had a wonderful date night meal for my husband’s birthday! A hidden local gem. Delicious fresh ingredients, homemade pasta, and the cheesecake was unreal! 10/10 recommend!
Wonderful. Great food. Lovely service.
