Dinner in Waterbury CT
Carmen Anthony's is wonderful but not a restuarant you want to hurry through dinner to go to a show. Carmen's should be your destination for the evening. It is also pretty far from the theatre. I second the recommendations for D'Orori's or Dreschers, pretty close by and great food.
Carmen Anthony's steakhouse is supposed to be the best steakhouse in CT. I believe this is the original one too. It's on Chase Ave. I have been to Circa Bistro and have had a good meal there and I hear Diorios downtown is also very good. Enjoy,Richie
Although I haven't eaten there in a while I would highly recommend Drescher's Restaurant on Leavenworth St. which is near the Palace Theatre (which I am assuming is where you are going...gorgeous renovation by the way). Check out the link below for information and their menu.
