Bistro Mediterranean & Tapas Bar

Reviewed By Joyce C - Hamden, Connecticut

They have a $15 lunch special which is a great value. It included an appetizer, entree and dessert. All choices were off the regular menu. Several sea food dishes which my friends really enjoyed. Portions were very generous. Our waiter, Miguel, was attentive and very professional.My only complaint would be that the music was a little to loud.
Although we asked them to turn it down, it went back up shortly after. Otherwise a very nice place. We will go back again soon.

Jennifer's Ice Cream

Reviewed By WaiPRUSA - San Juan, Puerto Rico

Very friendly people and very good ice cream. They have good choices of ice cream flavors, with tons of flurry combinations and a few flzvors of italizn ice. You can purchase ice cream cakes of different sizes and shapes. Thry also sell pre-packaged ice cream and cones. While my wife and I shared a Cherry Vanilla, Pumpkin and Coconut Pineapple ice cream Banana Boat with whip cream, pineapples, strawberries, cherries, peanuts, toasted coconuts and of course bananas. It was very good! My kids had small blueberry Italian ice and another small cookies & cream, plus vanilla ice cream cups. We paid a total of $12.00 which I think was pretty good value. We'll be back soon!

I enjoyed the pizza, but I don't really understand the hype. It's like most brick oven pizza I've had before. It's good, but not overly special.

Zuppardi's Apizza

Reviewed By bruce c - Bethlehem, New Hampshire

typical of the New Haven area, they had excellent pizza. Despite being busy on a saturday night, they got our (many) pizzas out timely and with really good service. They were extremely accommodating to our large party, even on a busy night. Drinks were reasonably priced, and options were good. Def a good, casual place to go for good pizza.

Petonito's Pastry Shop

Reviewed By Providence_RITom - New Haven, Connecticut

This place is near my father's place, so I stopped by and bought a couple of their cannolis to bring to my dad. The shell was crisp and light, and the cream was tasty. I've been back once, but haven't tried anything but their cannolis, which are probably the best cannolis I've had in the New Haven area.

Sandpiper Restaurant

Reviewed By Koreen G

The family use to love this place but after they redecorated their portion sizes got smaller and their prices went up. They use to make a great Rhode Island Clam Chowder but the last 3 times I had all you could taste was pepper. We use to leave this place full with doggie bags. Lately not so full and only the grandkids have doggie bags.

Caseus

Reviewed By didr - Connecticut

We had a wonderful meal for a family gathering. Excellent menu and wine list. The environment is crowded but, in its own way, quite romantic. The service was efficient. Lots of choices for small, medium, or large meals. Prices are on the high side, but the quality of the cheeses supports charging more. Reservations looked to be an absolute necessity.

Stowe's Seafood

347 Beach Street West Haven, CT 06516(203) 934-1991

Reviewed By broseman - Northford, Connecticut

Finally stopped for dinner after too many years of driving by without stopping. So glad we stopped. Across the street from the beach and has the beach/pirate feel to it. I had the lobster grilled cheese. Loaded with lobster and absolutely delicious. My wife had the fried scallops and said some of the best she's had. My daughter had the fried shrimp and loved them (as did I who helped eat them). Typical fries and slaw but the seafood was excellent. They also serve fresh seafood to go. We will go back again and again.
