Quattro Pazzi Cafe, Fairfield, CT-Review

My husband and I have dined here twice and I have been meaning to write a review about this restaurant. It is located on the Post Rd in Fairfield. It is a tiny restaurant with maybe 20 tables. It's very nicely decorated in a colorful jester theme. Both of the times we dined in this restaurant it was a Saturday night and very crowded. The restaurant does not take reservations so the wait seems to be between 45-60 minutes. They have a bar in the back room which tends to be very crowded, but they do make good martinis (I've had a pear martini there that I thought was wonderful). One word of warning-I don't know if it's because of the crowd or the kitchen, but this restaurant gets very warm-dress in layers that you can remove. The restaurant is also pretty noisy-really not the place for a real intimate, romantic dinner. Now on to the food which is really the reason to go to Quattro Pazzi Cafe. Both times I've dined here I've started with the pasta e fagiole. It is wonderful but be sure to order a small because the regular size is enormous! For entrees we've always stuck with the pastas and they have really been fantastic! The first time I had the fettucine alla Mitty which was fettucine with chopped scallops, shrimp and crabmeat in a pink sauce-delicious. The last time I had a rigatoni with sausage, peas and ricotta in a pink sauce which is also wonderful. The portions are large and it would be easy to share and entree. They have a large dessert menu with many gelatos. I would really reccomend this restaurant.
