I went here with my boyfriend on Wednesday April 8th and really enjoyed everything. Started out at the bar and was greeted by an outgoing bartender who was very knowledgeable on the wine and food. She recommended a very good red, but I cant remember the name. Then for an appetizer as per her recommendation we tried the mussels which were delicious. We then moved to a table and had a waiter who approached us right away and was very on point. We tried the pork chop and pasta bolognases which we both enjoyed. This restaurant is a must try!

I went to Casa Brusco on March 24, 2009 for dinner. I very much enjoyed the food and a delightful surprise in thin pizza bread with light tomato sauce on top. Our waitress brought this pizza bread to our table as soon as we arrived and was very friendly. I'm from Southern Connecticut but the trip is worth it - I will return with friends often. It is gorgeously decorated, and am planning on having several parties/get-togethers at the restaurant over the next few months. Much more reasonable price then restaurants in Greenwich, CT and the best Italian food nearby.

Pros: Decor, great menu: gnocci bolognese, pizza, prosciutto

Cons: Travel time

I came here wanting some pasta and left wanting some more. If you like Italian food then this is the place for you.

I came by after someone at work MENTIONED i should give it a shot. I took a seat at the bar and ordered a pizza carnivora with the bartender . There were only 2 other tables with customers eating so i assumed my order would be done quickly. After 10 mins of sitting at the bar without being acknowledged by neither of the 2 bartenders behind the bar who were chit chatting and pouring each other glasses of beer. One of them finally came by and asked if i wanted something to drink while i waited. I really did want a glass of nice red wine but their lack of customer service irked me so i said no thank you.
Over the next 30 mins, the bartenders were mingling around and drinking beer behind the bar with my order nowhere in sight. I called one bartender and asked what happened..she asked me if i had placed an order... I was shocked.. who was i talking with? i said that i placed an oder with her 20 minutes before. she went in the back and , within 1 minute he came out with my order. I guess my order was sitting there waiting for someone to bring it out and give it to me. As i break apart the pizza, i put my hand under the bottom of the pizza and it wasn't hot nor lukewarm. This confirmed to me that my order just sat there for a long time. I, for one do not like eating room temperature pizza that was just bought, but eating pizza that was in the fridge the next day is a different story.
Also, way way overpriced and totally lame i just wanted to get out of there. I asked the check, took my pizza to go and will never go back.....
words cannot express my disappointment, but as what i heard talking about at work the next day, this place is getting worst and worst day after day...

My husband forgot to call and make reservations for New Years eve somewhere...so I called and asked the manager Luigi if our party of four could have reservations for 9pm. He puts me on hold. Disconnected. I call back . "Ummmm... " He is flipping pages in a book. "Lemme a see aaaa .." Disconnected again! This is ridiculous. I call again and am mad. " Hello? Is there a reservation for 9 or not?? " I ask. Again Luigi says, " Ahh..I ama sorry ah eeef aah you wanna cumma eeena aahhhhh mebeeee earlier....aahhhh" and hangs up again.
I am never calling there again. I don't know who this Luigi is but what a retard.

One: Not sophisticated at all. So much cheesy "harvest type" plants you'd think you were entering a Hallmark Store.
Two: Unprofessional bartenders who are clueless about how to mix a drink or even mildly entertain the guests. Forget a buyback.
Three: A greeting might have been nice when we walked in. No idea who the Maitre'D or Manager was.
Four: I understand that owners want to make money so they take every single reservation possible here. But I'm not interested in waiting a half hour for my reserved table so I'm forced to buy drinks at the bar. Nice Try.
Five: Waiter was laughable. I couldn't understand one word of what he was saying for the specials and then he TORE the menus from us with such an attitude we should have left.
Six: Long long time for the food to arrive and when it did it wasn't worth the wait.
