If your looking for pizza, grinders, or pasta dishes they are all great... my favorite pasta dish is Irene's pasta

I can't recommend the buffalo chicken sandwich with sweet potato fries enough. It's delicious. They offer you a solid bun to go along with some spicy chicken. Definitely prefer Irene's over Vocatura's sandwiches.

I have not dined in but frequent their take out menu. Their stuffed eggplant is to die for! And it is huge- enough for two meals. I have never been disappointed by any dish I have had. The dining area is not much or special but you can't go wrong with the take out.

I ordered this as a to go dinner after a long day at work and cardio work out. The pasta was raw and oily with no flavor (No, that is not al dente!) I was so hungry that I could eat the salad, bread and what little meat they put on top of the horribleness that was the pasta. For... More

This is my first time in Connecticut and I have never had authentic Italian food. This food was amazing as well as the service I will return with my family from Texas.

Irene's is the closest Pizza place to me. I would like to say I love their food but find it average for the most part. The Pizza is good but inconsistent. Sometimes it will be swimming in sauce and not edible, other times it will be spot on (we usually order with light sauce). Their grinders and other food are... More

On a busy Friday night as we were passing through Norwich, we stopped here for our dinner. When a Gyro Plate with Spanakopita was spotted on the menu, my guess that we were at a Greek Restaurant. Waitress was very friendly as since most of the patrons had left; she was very engaging as we were waiting for our meal.... More

Needed food to be delivered after a wake. (We live 60 miles away) Found Irene's on trip advisor. They faxed the catering menu over to me. I phoned the order 48 hours ahead of time. Very helpful on the phone, they explained everything. Delivered and set up on time, ready for the immediate family after the wake. Food was awesome... More
