We enjoyed our evening at Trattoria da Lepri. We had the special Prix Fix menu and were amazed at the quality and variety. Food was delicious, wine was good, service was friendly and welcoming. A hidden gem located in a strip mall.

My wife and I went here many years ago soon after it opened. We had an acceptable meal, but I was turned off by one of the accompanying items. We've "forgotten" about it since, but returned for dinner on a cold, blustery night. Boy, have we missed out. Since we were last there the seating area has been expanded to... More

My wife and I have been to Lepri several times and it is always excellent! The food rivals the best Italian restaurants in New Haven and Little Italy. The menu is somewhat limited, but each dish is carefully selected and crafted. The homemade pasta and ravioli are fresh and creative. You would never know it would be so good from... More

It is very good. We have been there several times and always enjoyed excellent meals. It is quite pricey--everything is a la carte and it can easily cost $50+ per person for full meals. They offer unique combinations of ingredients and are not very willing to accept special orders, but the cook's creativity leads to delicious selections. It is a... More

Again, we made our monthly trek to this wonderful restaurant and again we were not disappointed. It wasn't crowded when we arrived but as the night wore on, more customers arrived and we could tell they were regulars by the way they were treated. We began with a goat cheese and roasted beet salad which my wife just loves. I... More

My mother in law wanted to take to a nice place for our 4 year anniversary. Restaurant was very cozy. Food was good. Pretty pricy for Ellington in my opinion but we had good service and a nice time. Don't know if I'll come here again but good over all.

For a small town this restaurant has a big city flavor.The menu is not your everyday run of the mill Italian but rather a departure from the very predictable boring list of common well known items that so many Italian restaurants offer. All in all it has pleased my wife and myself consistently over the course of several years.
