Great food!! One of the best Italian restaurants in New Haven Ct, not that there are many bad ones. This restaurant has everything you need. Good food, good wine, good deserts, friendly staff and great atmosphere. Call ahead as they are usually very busy! Enjoy🎈

Any restaurant sandwiched between Sally's APizza and Frank Pepe has to be good so we went, for the first time, to Consiglio's. We were a party of four with a reservation and were warmly greeted promptly seated when we arrived. The restaurant is well lit (no need to turn on my flashlight app) and warmly appointed so it felt very... More

It is rare these days for the food, ambiance and service to all be excellent! This was our first experience at Consiglio's but we will be back. I had a winter salad with fennel, radicchio and salmon. It had an excellent citrus based dressing. I am all about eating something different and this fit the bill. My husband, on the... More

Visited with two other individuals. All of our meals were rather standard fare – veal parmigiana, lasagna, and linguine with meatballs – but each was of exceptional quality. This restaurant has been in business for more than 70 years and it shows in very positive ways – excellent food, attentive service, and charming ambience. The spices chosen for the meatballs...

Stumbled upon this while waiting for a friend, promised to return after we had a wine at the bar. . Upon return weeks later stayed for a dinner in the bar and it was so fresh and perfect as described by our attentive server. Will definitely repeat ...

This was our first visit and we made reservations for a family birthday at a friend's recommendation. It did not disappoint! Homey, friendly, fabulous menu and the food was amazing. We'll be back :)

Consiglio's is next door to New Haven institution Frank Pepe's. Love the pizza there but the lines and noise are sometimes tough. I have eggplant panini. Very good perfect for lunch with a glass of chianti. Caesar salad with shrimp large a good as well. Very quiet and nice on a sunny Friday afternoon. Waitress was terrific as well.
