“Excellent spot for quick lunch”
Reviewed 27 September 2013 via mobile

Went there for lunch. Great opportunity to sit indoors or outside. Noise level, a bit high, mostly because this place is good and gets busy. I really enjoyed the "porcini mushroom pappardelle", with a moderately expensive wine (the markup compared to retail stores is a bit on the high side). Cannoli to close, very tasty. Service was OK. I will certainly come back.

“A very Good Place to Eat!”
Reviewed 27 September 2013

Recently remodeled, now with better atmosphere and 'legroom', it still has it's great food and service. I've been there a dozen times or so and never been disappointed. Go for the Linguini Pescatore, and you won't be disappointed either!

“Quick dinner before a local show”
Reviewed 26 August 2013 via mobile

It had been a couple of years since I last dined at Quattro Pazzi in Fairield, so we went there before a musical performance at a local theater. The bar was new and inviting and the menu looked familiar with some new additions. The Caesar salad was excellent and the calamari appetizer was better than average. They have a small, but representative wine list with a good assortment of reasonably priced wines, mostly from Italy. We selected a Valpolicella that opened nicely and became more akin to an Amarone. Nice. Service was terrific, but still did not avoid our rush to the show and some quick wrapping up of to-go bags. My pasta was very good and I will go back. Next time when I have time to stay a while.

“Love the food!!!”
Reviewed 4 August 2013 via mobile

I had a great dinner the other night with two friends. We sat at the bar. This was a Thursday night and luck for us we were able to get seats. It took at least 15 min. for the one bartender to ask us for a drink and offer us the specials. Yet, she had two bar backs that couldn't take our drink orders. Very confusing. They should have two bartenders. That would be my only complaint of the night. The food was fabulous! The pasta is fresh and our bartender was a sweetheart! Indoor or outdoors or at the bar, you need to stop in!

“Delicious Italian Cuisine”
Reviewed 25 July 2013 via mobile

Celebrated our anniversary at Quattro Pazzi tonight and enjoyed an excellent dinner. Both of our pasta dishes were fresh and perfectly prepared. We shared a tasty tiramasu for dessert. The service was good and attentive. We live in Fairfield and have dined here several times without ever being disappointed. Decor is pleasing although it can be a little loud when crouded. One of the best Italian restaurants in the area.
