We found a new favorite Italian restaurant this past friday night in Waterbury. We went on a recommendation from my brother in law's cousin's wife! It's called Brass City Bistro and it's right around the corner from mall and it's on route 69 I believe. The place was beautiful inside. We were both surprised cause we thought it was going to be a dive. They brought bread to the table and the butter was molded into little rosettes! Have not seen that in ages. We started out with the fried calamari, it was the best we ever had. Very tender and not overcooked. My partner had the penne with vodka sauce and that was very good, nice and creamy and buttery. There had to be a pound of pasta in the dish! I had the veal parmagiana with a side of penne with their red sauce that was very good also. I got 3 meals out of that one meal. They had many specials that weren't cheap and it was stuff you don't see that often. One I remember was a stuffed filet mignon with either crab or lobster and that was around $50 or $60! They also had fried seafood platters. Everything that was coming out of the kitchen was huge. We will definitely go back for another try!
