Everyone has a restaurant that they visit because of its atmosphere.
Winter or summer we all have our favorite places. Whether it's a restaurant with a roaring fire in the winter, or a flower bedecked patio in the summer. We all go to them for reasons beyond the food.
I have one special restaurant in particular that I love to visit because of its location on the Saugatuck River. It's the Arezzo Ristorante in Westport Connecticut. Their beautiful patio overlooking the river offers amazing views and a special waterfront ambiance. The atmosphere is relaxing and casually elegant.

The restaurant features a menu highlighting Chef / Owner Vinicio Llanos' favorite regional Italian dishes in a Tuscan-style atmosphere.
I was recently invited to a media dinner at Arezzo and it was one of those balmy warm nights this summer perfect for dining al fresco. Besides the great atmosphere, I also was able to meet a wonderful social media influencer from New York, Irene, who publishes I on The Valley, featuring great places and events from the Hudson Valley, and New York's Westchester County to Connecticut's Fairfield County.
Great conversation with friends, both old and new, over dinner always makes for a great dining experience!
We started with some cocktails and I went with a summery Limoncello Martini! Nice and crisp and with strong lemon flavor that I loved.
We then sampled some starters, a savory tomato bruschetta and a delicious eggplant crostini.
We were then seated where we began our wonderful dining experience over a fabulous charcuterie board before moving on to more appetizers and dinner selections.
For our appetizers we sampled a salmon tartare, watermelon salad, and a three-pasta combination platter.

Gnocchi with cherry tomato marinara and shaved cheese, and a hearty seafood risotto
Next we moved on to our entrees, some great seafood and chops!

For dessert we enjoyed a Tiramisu while the lights twinkled across the river...
...and over coffee we concluded our dinner with a beautiful moonlit night in Westport Connecticut at Arezzo Ristorante!
