Eggplant rollatini in CT

Looking for good eggplant rollatini in CT preferably in the western half of the state. I prefer it without prosciutto and maybe just stuffed with ricotta. I have had it recently at Molto in Fairfield which was good and Roseland in Derby which had the prosciutto in it. Thanks, Richie

  1. Not your neck of the woods, but in mine, I like it A LOT at Sammy's on Broad Street in Middletown.

    I don't remember prosciutto in it--just spinach and ricotta. The lunch portion is generous enough for me to get another meal out of it and their bread with sundried tomato dipping sauce is EXCELLENT!

    I used to like it very much at First & Last, too, but I haven't been in years and am not sure it's on their menu anymore.

    Oh, and believe it or not, Nardelli's makes respectable rollatini, too, despite what their detractors will say here.

    ETA: How did I forget Fiore II, downtown Middletown? Theirs is great! And having garlic knots to go with ain't too shabby, either.

    1. I like the rendition at Mancuso's in Fairfield - you can choose to have prosciiutto or mushrooms (or nothing) in it.

      1. Liana's in Fairfield, CT. or Quattro Pazzi in Fairfield, CT.

            possibly, sorry! but you're right, food is great.

              I love QP too. I see that they are expanding. This is one restaurant that has survived the economy.

          2. Not sure if you're looking this far north, but in Burlington (CT), Cassille's restaurant does a VERY decent ER.

            1. If you are looking to just buy eggplant rollatini whith ricotta and mozzarella, Sorrento's Importing on the corner of Main Street and Capitol Avenue makes them.

              1. I just had some good eggplant rollatini at a small Italian place in back of a strip mall on Wolcott rd in Waterbury. Called Aldo of Italy. It's been there for 25 years. It's in back of the Stop and Shop and Bob's strip mall, you enter by the Naugatuck Valley Bank and follow around to the back. It was filled with ham and ricotta cheese and very tasty! I will be going back there.

                  Also try Panino's on Main Street in Monroe. Simple, good.
