“Great food!!!”
Reviewed 19 December 2010

We went here last night because it was ranked so high on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed. The food was great and the service was excellent. The father is the cook. The mother is a hostess. One daughter is the waitress and the other was the bartender. When you leave, you feel like one of the family.

“Excellent Time”
Reviewed 30 October 2010

My husband and went with friends and had a great time. The real plus for my friend was that they offer gluten free pasta...talk about a happy girl! We will be making this restaurant one of our regulars.

“amato esso!”
Reviewed 1 September 2010

We were driving through from Newport, RI to Woodstock, NY before returning to Chicago... I searched for an authentic restaurant in the area and found La Scogliera. What a find! Absolutely LOVED this place. I lived in Italia for almost 4 years and the food at La Scogliera was absolutely authentic, and delicious. Our table ordered the gnocchi, with pesto sauce, linquine with clams and red sauce, and the Mezzelune Di Spinaci e Ricotta Con Creme Al vodka... a side of sauteed spinach and chianti. All dishes were very, very delicious! Stop by and visit Carmelo & Carmelina's restaurant!

“Excellent Experience at La Scolgliera”
Reviewed 23 May 2010

Great first time at this restaurant last night. Bobby, our server, was excellent and the food was superb. The special dessert the owner made for us as first-timers was incredible. Some friends had strongly recommended it and they were right! We will be back soon!
Happy in Trumbull
