My mother in law wanted to take to a nice place for our 4 year anniversary. Restaurant was very cozy. Food was good. Pretty pricy for Ellington in my opinion but we had good service and a nice time. Don't know if I'll come here again but good over all.

For a small town this restaurant has a big city flavor.The menu is not your everyday run of the mill Italian but rather a departure from the very predictable boring list of common well known items that so many Italian restaurants offer. All in all it has pleased my wife and myself consistently over the course of several years.

My cousin recommended this restaurant to us, and we finally ventured there (about a 35 minute drive). It was 100% worth it. The food was awesome - so fresh and so tasty. The service was wonderful - very professional and knowledgable. Although the restaurant lacks appeal from the exterior appearance, the inside is quite nice. They had good music playing... More

You would not expect such a high quality meal in a strip mall in Ellington, Connecticut....but let me assure you that it is one of the best meals I have ever had. From the warm greeting to the generous desserts, all aspects of this dining experience were outstanding. The fried calamari were perfectly cooked, nicely seasoned and lightly breaded. The... More

You truly don't expect this level of service, quality and atmosphere in a strip mall! Yet, here in Ellington you'll find it at Trattoria de Lepri! Wonderfully creative food and some of the best service you'll find anywhere! Great place and a go to for that romantic special dinner experience.
