Tomo 68

Reviewed By Weselly - Naugatuck, Connecticut

Had my fourth visit to Tomo's and every time the food had been delicious. I have never eaten this kind of food, but my wife loves it so we tried it. I have tried several different plates and have enjoyed each one. We will be back.

Nardelli's Grinder Shoppe

Reviewed By tanaw0226 - Brookhaven, Mississippi

I discovered Nardelli's the same day I arrived to CT... And never looked back. Their grinders are FABULOUS and a craving for me (being pregnant). I also enjoy the fact that they have delivery services for when you don't want to drag your kids out.

66 Church Gastro Pub

Reviewed By Lou B

Have been to 66 Church a couple of times and have not been disappointed at all. The drinks are unique and creative. The food was excellent. Some classic bar food, but made with creativity. A great place for a family or a group of friends.

American Pie Pizza & Restaurant

Reviewed By marybeth203 - Naugatuck, Connecticut

This is a tried and true eatery. Pizzas, grinders, and pasta are all good options. The decor is not fancy, is clean, and the staff and atmosphere are pleasant. The margherita pizza is outstanding and especially good when accompanied by a sumptuous salad. The restaurant is easy to find and conveniently located. It is definitely worth a try!

Wen's Asian Fusion

Reviewed By Joe M - Naugatuck, Connecticut

This restaurant is by far the best Chinese, Thai, sushi place in the Naugatuck/Waterbury region. A good way to judge a frequented restaurant is the amount of the staff. They seem to almost always be busy, and they always have more than enough staff to handle the orders coming in. That strikes me that they have good management.

The owner takes pride in the presentation of the food, and the cleanliness of her establishment. These are important things to me, and I hope they are to you too.

Everything was FANTASTIC!
Had a group of 30 in the rear dining room.

Kim was one of our servers who went above and beyond to accommodate our party.

Food was served perfectly. The food was delicious! It was complimented by all who attended. We had beef, chicken and sole and meatballs buffet style.

Everyone enjoyed the atmosphere, it was one of the best Christmas parties we’ve had!

Chiangmai Thai Naugatuck CT

Reviewed By YerTizUS - Port Charlotte, Florida

In the downtown area of the coastal town of Naugatuck, CT., is a very unassuming little Thai Restaurant called Chiangmai Thai. Inside is a bit strange with pink and blue fluorescent lights, the folded napkins add a nice touch as does the paper covering from the straws being turned into roses.

Then comes the best part, the food. I ordered a shrimp dish which was amazing. My partner had a chicken dish which was just as wonderful. The dishes we had wasn't spicy at all and quite flavorful.

To end your meal, they give you an orange in the orange peel cut up. Nice ending to a fantastic meal.

If you live in, near or visit the area, this restaurant is a must try.

Al's Hot Dog Stand

Reviewed By Fred S - Naugatuck, Connecticut

This roadside stand has been a staple in Naugatuck for many years.

The hotdogs are great with tantalizing relishes.

They also have the prerequisite hamburgers fries and specials. The only thing missing is unsweetened ice tea.

Nothing fancy here, located on a busy and noise intersection.

Great for a quick meal or take home.

This is one of those out-of the way places you have to search for. Home style cooking with generous portions; a cute dining room; good table wine; and friendly owners. Very peaceful - take your time and reasonable prices.
