      An excellent choice. You can also try Vazzy's.

        I have a friend up there who swears by Testo's. 920 Madison Ave, Bridgeport 203-367-4298.

        I've never been there but I trust my friends judgement 150%. Let me know what you think

      3. No place better than Tuscany on Madison Ave. Far and away the best Italian in Fairfield Cty.

        1. Check out the Tristate board for Bridgeport rather than New England- - Taberna (Spanish/Italian), Epernay Bistro--search for posts on them. Viale for Italian.

            Went to Taberna last night for dinner and drinks. We ended up just having 2 apps,wine, and then left. The fried calamari was really awful. We should have just sent and back! Came out cold and way overdone, it was either old or just sat out for 10 minutes before they brought it to us however the piquillo peppers were good.

              I went to Taberna several weeks ago. I started with excellent boquerones. We had seafood paella for the main course.The food and service were outstanding. The owners seem to really care about what they're doing. Everyone was very gracious and accomodating. I would definitely go back. Sorry you didn't have a good experience, Rich.

          2. Sorry; I just realized this is an incredibly old thread.
