I'm really starting to like this place which is right next door to Quattro Pazzi in downtown Fairfield. The owner, Madeline, is always there and chatting with the customers. On our last visit she went out of her way to be nice to our kids which I appreciate. We had the fresh ricotta with roasted tomatoes which was amazing and when we asked her where she got the ricotta she offered to get it for us and gave us her home phone #. The menu has a nice variety, offering small plates, salads etc. It is very casual and you feel like you could sit around with a glass of wine or have a 3 course meal and either way it would be fine with her. She also has homemade gelato which is delicious. She makes pizza or pasta for the kids. You just don't see this kind of place very often and it's quickly becoming one of my local favorites!
