We went there to meet and talk with old friends that we hadn't seen for many years. We had a wonderful time with them. We were so busy chatting that none of us bothered to order appetizers, nor to care that the service, although very cheerful, was pretty slow. So far, so good. This is one of those "Italian" restaurants... More

Chef Art's creations are delightfully tasteful, refreshing and perfectly portioned. Watch him do his magic through the large glass window while sipping a delicious wine or a perfect Martini. At the front of the house Art's wife Julia is a welcoming Hostess who makes you feel right at home. This unpretentious hidden gem in Ridgefield is the model of consistency,... More

This is a well recognized and appreciated restaurant that draws their clientele from other towns. Msurprising in that it's somewhat hidden in the back of a shopping plaza, but it's worth finding. Although very good Italian, more than the common choices, I enjoy their steaks too. It's worth looking up.

A tight little room that seems to be always packed, so reservations are a must. They also seem to have a regular clientele based on the familiarity and interaction we saw with the wait staff and the "regulars"; this is a good sign. Appy's included beet salad and calamari. Dinner was a fish bouillabaisse and the sea scallop special. Normally... More

We spent a very pleasant couple of hours with friends at Bartolo. Started with the antipasti, good selection and enough for 4 of us. I followed with the Pork Chop which was good, not spectacular. The other diners had Steak (excellent), sea bass (very good) and seafood pasta (very good). Good wine selection and great, friendly service. The restaurant is... More

Nice place with nice people. Good service. Food sounded great when our waitress read the specials. Too bad the food was mediocre. The chef did his best, but the ingredients are sub-par. Must be frozen lower quality food. Scallops tasted like that fake crab stuff. Restaurants selling dishes at a decent price should use grade A ingredients.

Impressed With breadth of the menu. It's spans comfort food to gourmet. Will surely come back soon with friends.

We've had generally positive experiences at this eatery over the years, commenting on freshly prepared dishes and competent service, but our latest visit was a near disaster! We waited nearly an hour for our shared appetizer - fried calamari - despite several reminders to our waitress. One guest complained about the saltiness of their dish - veal in a mushroom... More
