    We have tried to support ‘A Vucchella mostly out of appreciation for Pasquale the owner and the fact that it is such charming place in downtown Bridgeport. The place has been struggling during the pandemic as many have. The menu has become stagnant and the food inconsistent at best. We recently tried again and unfortunately have decided that our patience and support are exhausted. No one wants to go out to dinner and watch grossly overburdened staff desperately struggling to serve patrons. Unfortunately, this is not a rare occurrence. Last night when we arrived we found one waitress, greeting customers, tending bar, taking orders, serving tables for about 35 people with more coming in. One bus person was doing their best to help. Miraculously, Our order was taken fairly promptly and was prepared quickly. Unfortunately, I would say that our two dinners were completely unacceptable. We just didn’t have the heart to send them back. I had ordered a chicken franchise, thinking that it was simple and wouldn’t be challenging for the kitchen on a busy evening. I received a generous portion of the toughest pounded chicken breast I have ever encountered. Completely overcooked. My date ordered a spaghetti dish described as containing zucchini. Whatever had been done to the zucchini rendered it unrecognizable as a vegetable. Literally, no recognizable structure or color other than a brown bitter mess mixed with spaghetti. We actually sent it back, convinced that we had received the wrong order but we were assured it was correct. We did not argue but didn’t eat it either. So Pasquale, we tried but we’ve just feel that it’s time to wish you and your family the best of luck.

    We went in for pizza and really enjoyed the entire experience. The food was delicious as was their homemade pannecotta and tiramisu. The owner was very friendly and there was a nice ambiance throughout the restaurant. We loved it and are looking forward to going back.

    My family of 7 and I went there to eat after my graduation, and it was the absolute perfect place to celebrate with food and drinks. Our seating was filled with bright natural lighting, our food was SO GOOD, and our waiter (for most of our time there) Pasquale had the charisma, respectability, and energy for anyone to feel welcomed and warm while dining there. 11/10

    We had an amazingly good meal at Trattoria 'A Vucchella last week! The housemade foccaccia, delicious eggplant parmesan appetizer, beet salad and fresh made, personal pizzas were fantastic. The service was excellent and the staff were very kind and accomodating since we were in a rush to get to the ferry! Would recommend to anyone who enjoys excellent, authentic Italian food.

    Given our past experiences at the restaurant we were a little disappointed, we were seated quickly and greeted by the owner, orders were taken promptly. We waited a little longer than usual but the restaurant was full. One dish came out incorrect and one cool, both issues were corrected quickly and we finished our dinner without any further issues. Like most restaurants I think they are experiencing reopening issues post Covid. Will definitely return because the food is excellent

    This used to be a lovely restaurant before the pandemic. Alas, not anymore. We dined on a Friday night. They were out of a number of items on the menu. Even though the dining room was less than half full, we waited over an hour for the entrees (two pastas and a pizza), the explanation being that there was a large takeout order and the oven only makes two pizzas at a time. Once it arrived, the pizza was so underbaked as to be inedible. The clams appetizer was too salty. Sadly, we will not return.

    My wife wanted the sole franchise the waitress said the new chef does not make that anymore even though it was still on the menu he made a lemon sauce with no coating on it the fish did not taste fresh to her. I ordered the clams with white sauce very on flavorful was not happy for the price.

    Just a bunch of guys having beer and pasta before the show across the street at the Bistro. Really friendly staff, good beer and martinis. The charcuterie de casa was a nice starter and included some crunchy good bruschetta. Fresh pasta with meatballs was simple and good. Y friend loved his seafood pasta with clams and mussels. I’ll definitely go back.
