To celebrate my birthday, my husband made a reservation at Birroteca. We were warmly greeted and given the table he requested on Open Table. Tim, our server, came right over. He was very friendly and attentive without being intrusive. My husband always enjoys a Rye Manhattan and Birroteca makes a really good one. We were surprised that they could not make a Southern Comfort Old Fashion as they did not have Southern Comfort on the bar. Not a problem, we ordered a bottle of Pinot Grigio by La Feria from Veneto. We told Tim we were not in a rush. We were slightly surprised when they brought our appetizers and salad at the same time. Our most favorite appetizer is the Burrata Cheese Bruschetta which has melted grape tomatoes and basil on top of the bruschetta. Our only disappointment was the bruschetta was not toasted well – it was limp. The Kale salad was fresh with beets, hazelnuts, and burrata cheese dressed with a white balsamic vinaigrette and lemon-honey drizzle.

While we were still enjoying our appetizers and salad, they brought out my husband’s dinner entree. We requested that they take it back as we were not ready for our main courses. For our main courses, my husband had the Homemade Pappardelle with Wild Boar Bolognese and Parmesan. I really like the Duck Duck Goose – a very interesting pizza topped with Duck Confit, Fig-Onion Jam, Balsamic, Fontina & Asiago, and a Duck Egg. We were both thrilled with our main courses. For my birthday, the restaurant treated me to an Italian Kit Kat (with a lighted candle), which was a really decadent dessert with dark chocolate crunch, chocolate truffle, hazelnut mouse, sea salt, and caramel. Oh my, I was in heaven! My husband is a lover of ice cream, and he thoroughly enjoyed the Taharka Brothers Chocolate Love.

Food overall was delicious. Our server was fine. The only thing I could honestly say is the food took forever. We waited a really long time. No apology was ever given. Just I’ll check the kitchen. It was a little disappointing.

Always an excellent place with excellent food but the bar area is not like it use to be. It has become very dull and boring looking. During the holidays you hope to have a bit more decorating to make it more of a festive experience but the decorations were minimal and not given much thought.
Chalkboard is blank, no Christmas tree, it use to be a much more festive looking environment.

Food is always pretty good and consistent here. The service was spotty. Appetizers came out pretty late. Water wasn't filled, even though we asked several times. Main courses came out before the appetizer plates were cleared, so there was no room to put everything. I have never had a bad experience here before and have been many times. It just wasn't what it should have been which is odd, as it was a Saturday night and there weren't that many people there. Apart form the inconsistent service, a good meal though, so I would still definitely recommend!

Perfect place to dine in Hamden! Great food, reasonably priced, and extra bonus, a parking lot.

I can’t wait to go again.

Had lunch here before a 2PM Everyman show. Arugula salad was delicious as were the 2 pizzas (mushroom and spicy sausage) we ordered. Took about 10 minutes to get downtown. a perfect pre-theater spot with easy parking.

Disappointing.....appetizers forgotten or who knows what happened...main courses removed to serve apps. We were told main courses would be remade. When served they were lukewarm..really? Remade, I don’t think so. Waitress was overwhelmed, but seemed to do her best considering what we assessed as loosy goosy management of front, bar and food.
That said we are good friends and good company can make almost anything fun.
We probably wouldn’t recommend.

The food was delicious and our server was quick to offer suggestions when asked about the menu. Definitely coming back. If you haven’t had the handmade fettuccine carbonara you have to try and the mussels in the white wine sauce were amazing!

Very large helpings of Brussel sprouts, caesar salad, and mussels. Delicious, too. Charcuterie was good but would like option of more cheese and less meat. Very affordable for a fine meal.

Unpretentious. Humble. Impressive food including the spicy chickpeas, arugula salad, and handmade pappardelle. Creative desserts that surprised and delighted. Homemade limoncello. I drank a vinho verde, which I almost never see on a menu, and my friends all raved about their cocktails. EXCELLENT SERVICE.

Happy Hour here is not a deal. Prices are reduced but so is the amount of food served so in essence there isn't really any special pricing. The menu lists the same appetizers at Happy Hour as at dinner. Also food was alittle over salted.

Evening was fun. A celebration. Waiter was excellent. drinks were great Pizzas and apps were very good,esp the chick peas appetizer; stick with those. Mushroom risotto was under-cooked and pasta was way over salted. Not enough to ruin our evening but worth noting. Overall, a fun night, would go back.
