First time here with friends- definitely a nice time with very good food and service. We went early on a Sunday evening and it was not crowded, which made it very quiet and pleasant.Our server was very professional and understanding- there was a problem with the tonic dispenser (serving soda instead) and after two tries and their going out to get a tonic bottle, everything was fine- definitely went the extra mile!.
We'll be back!

Being a native New Yorker and Italian American who has traveled in Italy, I have a very high standard as to my expectations of Italian food. As a new resident of Connecticut, I’ve found that most of the restaurants I’ve sampled were OK, but not at the level I’ve grown accustomed to until I discovered Arezzo.

Simply put, the food is exquisite and the service is warm, professional and very attentive without being hovering. The ambiance is mellow and relaxing, great for a romantic dinner or large gathering. The outdoor space on the water looks wonderful (alas, weather was not conducive to outdoor dining at the time).

I can’t wait to go back, and now believe I’ve finally found my favorite Italian spot! I can’t imagine anyone being disappointed. This restaurant is also great for vegetarians and folks with gluten intolerance.

- Buona Mangia!

The restaurant is easy to find and parking is good. The servers were patient and understanding. The ambience whether inside or outside ( on the river) was great. Saturday night, service was a bit slow but the restaurant was busy. I would highly recommend this restaurant for any occasion.

My husband and I can't say no to Italian food, and Arezzo did not disappoint. With a great outdoor patio on the water we enjoyed a date night on Friday that was complimented by a hearty bottle of wine. The burrata as a starter was absolutely delicious and I can't say enough about the Paparadelle and Ragout.

Service was excellent, enjoyed the ambience, nice presentation, but people go to restaurants primarily for the food. Considering it is an Italian restaurant, the chef needs a cookbook.

Great food and location (that offers dining right on the river), but very disappointed by the service. We were a party of 4, and 2 of us received our meals 10 minutes before the others. To make matters worse, we watched meals get delivered to 3 neighboring tables as we waited. This is unacceptable at a high end restaurant.

I am in town working and so have been reading up on various restaurants and trying them out. I read very good reviews of Arezzo and the menu looked tasty to me. It is on the water and sitting outside on a lovely early evening was just beautiful. The service was mostly really good (my main waiter was not particularly friendly or helpful but everyone else was great). I would say the food is good but, for the price, the quality and caliber is not high enough. The ideas are good but not perfectly executed for the cost. Ingredients could be better, fresher. I ordered a watermelon salad to begin with. It was a special appetizer. Marvelous idea with cucumber, pistachios and dry ricotta. However, the watermelon was mealy, the temperature of the salad was warmish (not pleasant - it should have been cold and refreshing)) there was no dressing or whatever there was had no impact, etc. I will make it at home because the ingredients were a good combo (I usually use tomatoes not cucumbers but that is a nice addition) but mine will be better because I will use ripe and firm watermelon and balsamic of some kind and it will be cold. The homemade fettuccine (with funghi) was really good but the sauce, while good and filled with mushrooms and redolent of fresh thyme and the truffle oil it was advertised with, was quite over salted. This seems an egregious error, amateurish, masking the otherwise tasty flavors. After a few bites I felt such a sodium rush that I took the rest home. It is still in the fridge... I know I am sounding like a total food snob but it was reasonably expensive so I expected better. I can imagine someone having a different experience than mine. Perhaps I just ordered wrong. I think if you want nice pasta you could be pleased and the menu offers many other options besides pasta. However, for myself, I would not go back. I'll try one of the other highly recommended restaurants in the area. Westport and surrounds sure has a lot of them!

I am a regular customer here. Food is always good, service is just mediocre. Friday night I had the Halibut special and it was excellent. It came with a side of mashed potatoes which unfortunately were cold. We ordered desert for the table and coffee. They brought out the 3 coffees but forgot my tea. It is these little mix ups that prevent me from giving this restaurant an excellent rating. Funny thing is, I have never noticed a manager or anyone in charge walking around. Nobody has ever stopped by my table to ask how everything is. One other item I wish they would address. For parties of 4 they use these cheap folding tables outdoors. On 2 sides the folding legs protrude and don't allow you to sit close enough. By the end of the night you leave with a sore back.

Went with friends, three couples altogether. My husband ordered veal saltinboca (not sure of spelling) was suppose to have prosciutto- it didn't. Also, his dinner came out a good 7 minutes after the other 5. The veal was very tough. Our drinks also came at different times before dinner.
We ordered coffee and ask to see a dessert menu but instead he rattled off a few choices and walked away. We never had a chance to order dessert! The three ladies didn't finish so we ask for a take home bag. They arrived at the table with one bag and everything in it. We ask them to please separate then when the bags came we each got the wrong one.

I normally love Arezzo and have been many times. The food and atmosphere were great as always. Out waiter was not pleasant or attentive in any way. I wish I said something to the manager but we were taking my in-laws out for their anniversary and I had my kids with me. I was also shocked that they charged $20 for two half orders of plain penne. Makes no sense. I was really shocked by the service though.

We go to Arezzo often as we enjoy dining outside. Overall we enjoy the experience. Little disappointed this time w/ the food as it was very salty. Also it would be a much better experience if the owners invested in real tables outside — as opposed to the aluminum folding tables they are using. Finally, it would be wonderful if the owners retiled the outdoor dining area. The tiles outside now are very uneven and potentially dangerous.

This was our first visit to Arezzo. We were seated outside as requested. The food is good. Nice size portions and not overly priced for the area. The problem begins when you have only a few head waiters and a lot of helpers. We wait awhile to place our order and then I was amazed to see our waiter also making our drinks and bartending while there was a lot of staff hanging around. We would probably go back and give it another whirl.

Food was really good but it took us 20 min. To get seated due to a slow moving line at the hostess station (there were plenty of open tables). Once we ordered it took 1 hour 15 min. To get our appetizers. SO SLOW! We asked for olive oil for our bread but the bus boy couldn’t help us because he didn’t speak English. Waiter had way too many tables. Despite excellent food & ambience, I won’t be going back any time soon.

Drinks were not good and waiter told us we were wrong and did not replace them. After he finally took our order, he told us all the veal was gone - we had a 7:30 Reservation. The chicken dishes we were forced to order were dried out and tasteless. My side of pasta was incorrect and a replacement was not brought until I was finished with my main dish. Coffee was provided sparingly. We had friends from out of town and all six of us were totally underwhelmed by the waiter, the service, and the food. A fun night ruined by the poor experience at the restaurant which had been highly recommended. Extremely disappointed!
