Aloi in New Canaan - Jfood thinks it should be more popular

Jfood had yet another great meal at Aloi last night. Yet there were only three tables that had two turns, and the restaurant was not as full as the price-point to quality should dictate.

Jfood ordered the pasta with white ragu for an appetizer and the bronzino special for an entree.

The pasta with ragu is easily the best ragu around (jfood has ordered a half a dozen times) and the pasta is homemade and perfectly cooked.

The bronzino was perfectly prepared, moist and boneless on the plate. The side of potato wedges were crispy on the outside and moist inside. A nice topping of tomato and garlic accompanied as well.

The restaurant also has incredible breads and foccacio while when you first arrive. The wait staff is friendly and knowledgeable and the owner has installed sound deafeners to assist in the previous complaints about a loudness to the room. Jfood also saw several tables BYOB with no corkage.

Entrees are in the low to mid 20's (althoughthe bronzino special was 35) and appetizers in the low to mid teens.

With all of this going for the restaurant jfood scratches his head on why it is not more popular.
