Good rustic Italian food. Service is nice and drinks are good. Nice decor, and building is large. They have a main dining room, a separate bar, and even separate party room for private functions.


Busy place. Like the food and everything

Lucy Delorenzo

Always phenomenal! Tastiest version of whatever you choose on the menu. Ribeye steaks, pasta, their house salad, and you're in for a treat with the scallops over spinach. Our very favorite place!

I attended a surprise birthday party. The room was beautiful . the servers we had were very good,non stop and very friendly. The food was served family style. We were entertained by aMariachi International Jiquilpan group leader Jose Silva which was very nice. A beautiful dessert table was lovenly handmade by myself with help of a dear friend. Birthday cake from Costco (New York area). All had a great evening.

nathalie petersen

Reminds me of a restaurant on kitchwn nightmares pre-gordon ramsey

Joseph Marchio

Food was great service on the down side.

larry evans

Their steaks are from the same place as Peter Luger's....and it's what you would expect from a NY style steakhouse. Prices are reflective of the same. I actually had the lamb chops....which are always good. The bone in rib eyes are a favorite as well. My colleagues always order a side order of bacon...which is delish.

Spider Jerson

Nice place to hang out with ur family...Good food with decent people.

kenneth beasley

Great place

Jonathan Stevens

Food OK but here with a buddy and they are playing love songs on a Saturday night. Ask waiter twice to change music and then the third time asked for a manager. A forth time I said if a manager does not come to my table I will never eat here again. No manager came. Terrible customer service. They act like they are doing you a favor.

Cristina Lima

Food is great, definitely a great place to celebrate something special.

Brian Schaefer

Famous name in Bridgeport but our last visit showed some flaws. Bread was day old diner rolls toasted. We were told they ran out when they replaced it with fresh bread. One patrons diner was bitter they offered to remove the charges.

Marc Kaufman

always great food especially for large partys

Frank Sturchio


Mur Young

Nice place

the nsxsurgeon

Horrible service. We were a party of six and given a table that should have been for 4. Hardly any room for plates. My wife ordered chicken parm and the waiter insisted that she ordered veal parm and was giving her an argument. I had to tell him to stop arguing and give her what she ordered. When they brought the bread it was placed right in front of me instead of the middle of the table and the waitress dropped butter tabs on my left shoulder. The waiter later tried to hand my wife hot coffee while he was holding it by the handle and expecting her to grab the hot cup with her hand instead of placing it on the table himself. The staff would interrupt conversations and reach over you. Why dine out for poor service?

Tim Keogh

Not a fan of family style service for events. Packed 10 to a table that should fit 8 it's a little crowded.

Danny Dicks

I real enjoyed it.And the food and waiter was excellent went there for cynthia BIRTHDAY

Clasate McDonald

Wonderful all day training and the food service was phenomenon!!

Michelle Byrd

My family had my sister’s 80th surprise birthday celebration catered at the restaurant. The. 5 course meal was delicious. Our entire family of 34 guests raved over the amount of food & how well it was prepared. Service was very timely & excellent. Manger Matt was very helpful planning this event since we, planner, lived out of state. Thank you making this a memorable occasion. Hats off to the entire staff at Testo’s Restaurant. You all deserve 10 stars

Over all it was a beautiful banquet hall and the servers were very attentive. The food was "okay" but not great. I had pasta, sausage woth sauce. The sauce in particular was not the greatest.

Bernard M Webb

Fine dining at it best. Attending a party. Very nice atmosphere

Had a nice bottle of wine he had a porter house steak.i had veal marsala and we had a gorganzola salad.What a great place, old school Italian. I live 10 minutes from there and don't there enough, but it has become my new "go to" place. The food was amazing, the service was friendly and fantastic, and the portions were amazing, also very affordable.

Linda Novak

Great food, great atmosphere. Great time. Easy to get to.

Diego Muriel

I have been many times on testos ans Always the bread is so cold

Benigno Fronsaglia

Always good for a drink, smoke and if course delicious food! Never disappoints! Sometimes can be your neighborhood bar or restaurant or a great place to bring business, family and friends!

McIntyre Viands

High quality American-Italian food, good service, and ok prices. The crowd seemed like regulars, judging by their conversation. Both dishes we tried (manicotti and calamari marinara) were very good, and the two desserts we're above average. That plus one Caesar salad (which was great) ran just over seventy dollars, including gratuity.

Jesse Evans

Our office went to lunch here for the holiday. The interior was decorated nicely for the holidays. The service on the phone was terrific and recommendations were made on how to make the event the best time spent. The reservation was ready on time and the service was terrific. Everyone loved the dishes.

Marlene Recchia

Always a delish meal and great service.

Stevie Builder

Great food really great people beautiful establishment

Craig Kydes

Eat their several times consistently great.

Maria Kozloski

My cousin and I had dinner at Testo's, we each ate less than half of our meal since the portions are quite large and took the rest of our meal home. Imagine my surprise when I got home and opened the bag with my leftovers and I had the WRONG dinner. The bus boy switched our meals around. I guess from now on I will always check my doggy bag before I leave the restaurant. So since my cousin and I live 10 miles apart I called Testo's to tell them what happened. I was put on hold for 5 long minutes while the girl checked with the manager. Finally she got back on the line and informed me that the manager said we could not be compensated because they had no way of knowing how much of the meal we actually took home. I was told to just switch meals with my cousin. Well now its 10pm and we live 10 miles apart, why should we be inconvenienced because their employees are not trained properly. It wasn't even crowded that evening. Anyway they have seen the last of us. Apparently the customer is not always right!! Also while the food was good, it is VERY OVERPRICED.

Karen Clarke

Friendly place. Very good food. If you like Fred Flintstone size portions, this is the place. Great staff and a great bartender. We ate in the bar room tonight. Soft lighting. Quiet dining experience.

Jackie Vega

It was awsome , great people

Virginia Maiocco-Cabeleira

My Favorite is the Hot Antipasto. Always great food and friendly staff

Tammy Jack

We had a delicious dinner. The service was great.

Peter Patterson

If have eaten at Peter Luger's, or The Pen & Pencil, or Smith & Wollensky then Joseph's is that club type atmosphere.Male wait staff, wainscotting walls,and al a carte priciing. A house salad with a steakhouse dressing to die for , thick steaks and chops grilled to perfection .

Tia Williams

Was there for a party.. absolutely wonderful!.. but for me the food was a little under seasoned. I'll be back!


Great pasta. Love this place.

Claudio Munizaga

Branden Scoggin

“Best Kept Treasure” We visit Joseph's every time we are visiting family and we are NEVER disappointed! Friendly staff, Great food, kind to the grandkids and the Steaks with a side of BACON!! A real meal in a small town!! Must go!!!

Arlene Kundert

, I'm not going to tell anybody I hated the place I love the place the food is excellent and if you ever need to do a small or large event special like a Acura a funeral or a wake bat is the place to go

Sam Raidley

Very good food! Prices great when you see the quantity. (You literally get two full meals every time) The pizzeria on Suburban Ave in Fairfield is a more relaxed atmosphere for a fun Friday night out but if you're looking for a more formal setting but not crazy fancy, this place is great!!

Richard Collazo

Very good spot

Suprena Shuler

The food is delicious as usual. I really enjoyed the customer service as well.

Reasonable prices for perhaps the most outstanding chicken dish I've ever eaten. Did I mention great staff

Big Vinnie

An old standby in Bridgeport the food is always like your mother's cooking we had a great waiter

carole jolicoeur

We ordered catering for our church's 40th Anniversary. Mat was there every step of the way to answer my many questions and to make some recommendations. The food was ready to be picked up on time and was delicious! I would definitely order from them again.

That was before I came here. The bread with honey butter, I couldn't get enough! The bread was amazing. The appetizer, Steak tidbits were cooked to perfection.. they were like butter and oh so tasty! We've also had the spicy, it was the best color ever had it was so tender and flavorful. The prime rib dinner with the swirled...

Ronald Darbisi

Food is always good. Service was good for Birthday banquet family style.

Justine Stabile

I've been to both. This time I was at the Madison Ave restaurant for a bridal shower. Plenty of delicious food at the buffett. Friendly professional servers.

Kiisa Kennedy

I was the four a private party so didn't get the full experience to know better. For the party, things were rushed. They were taking plates and food way too soon. Some guests didn't get to eat much if anything at all.

Lynn Narvaez

Very nice for gatherings/parties. Food is ok. Some dishes are bland but salt & butter can be used to resolve the issue.

Antonio monica

Rude and very under trained staff.... Valet guy was a joke speeding with people's cars. The food was ok at best.

Brian Havanich

Very large portions. Almost family style like. Really great though.

Aaron Johnson

Food and service was outstanding. One of the best Penne alla Vodka as I've ever had. The meal was served in a traditional Italian fashion four or five courses. The decor was a little dated but still very comfortable for corporate events and there's plenty of parking outside.

Michael Seagren

Good food great service friendly staff good prices

david flint

The best two waiters, Paul and Daniel will serve the best freshest seafood you can find.


Just a good Italian restaurant. The food and service is always good. One of my few go-to places in that area.

Love the food and service... Great place...

Jhonny Rocha

The food here is always lovely. The overall vibe of the restaurant is quite friendly and upbeat which is great. The workers here are very polite and patient and the pricing is reasonable. This place is a nice one to go out with a group of friends or with family.

Wendy Jones

The environment is beautiful, staff could pick up their pace and attention span. Food definitely could taste better.

Patti T

We had our father's reception at Testo's after his funeral mass. Matt made everything so easy when we reserved the banquet room. We didn't have a firm head count for Matt until our funeral director called in an estimate from the church. The tables were set and there was plenty of food for the 125 people that showed up. The food was excellent, especially the penne with vodka sauce, and service was very professional. Many of the guests praised Testo's when they were leaving the restaurant and when I spoke to people for the next few days they mentioned how good it everything was at the restaurant. After we booked the event, I became concerned while reading some of the reviews on the internet. I don't usually write reviews, but wanted to share our positive experience for people when they are considering Testo's. I wouldn't hesitate to have another event there.

Pamela Moultrie


Pat Robarge

Great projects and roast beef sandwiches

Dawn Scinto

Been going to testo for years never had a complaint about the food it's excellent. Pasta is awesome

Diahann Phillips

I ALWAYS have a great time at Testo's! The food IS as good as it smells. The staff is super friendly. The music is at a conversation level. I know even going solo for an event, my car & I are safe AND I usually bump into people I know. I ALWAYS recommend Testo's for everthing from popping "The BIG QUESTION", to "The Stag", to "The BIG DAY", to "The Baby Shower"... ALL of "Life's BIG DAYS"... I've had the pleasure of enjoying the memory at Testo's on upper Madison Ave Bridgeport!

Lee Letourneau

Marina Senft

Rich Harris

Good food good atmosphere

Kat Bakes

Absolutely horrible experience. I recently had my bridal shower at Testos. Matt (who truly was absolutely great, sincere, and very patient) helped us plan the layout and menu. On the day of the shower, everything that could go wrong did go wrong. To begin, the party started at 12pm, and the staff had not finished setting up the tables yet. The staff was a set of two teenagers; one waiter and one waitress. The guests were arriving, and the tables were not ready. How embarrassing. Second, several mistakes were made with the menu and the execution of the menu. For starters, t he appetizers came out 45 MINUTES LATE, and only two ladies were able to enjoy them; to this day, we wonder where the 300 quiches--that we paid HIGHLY for--went. Lunch was not served on time. We were served the wrong type of pasta--we paid for pasta vodka, and this was NOT what was served. The refills of the food trays was incredibly slow, (picture our guests waiting in line for 20 minutes for a salmon refill!) and the waitress and waiter were unprofessional and rude. The waiters knew--both by the manager, and by my family, that they had to pour the alcohol in our "signature drink"--and this did not happen until our guests started complaining, half way through the bridal shower, that there was no alcohol in their drink. When asking the waitress for help in calling our guests to the buffet, she suggested that my "sister direct the guests." Unprofessional and unacceptable. To make matters worse, the pitchers of "Sprite" on each table were really just seltzer water, and the audio/microphone system had 1) no living batteries 2) generally not working. When I asked for new batteries for the microphone (while I was opening up my bridal shower gifts,) this request was met 45 minutes later. When asked to cure the clearly lack of properly executed contract, the owners refused to. I am beyond disappointed and will no longer be having my wedding rehearsal dinner party here. Do not waste your time planning your next shower, wedding, or event here; you will be met with unprofessional staff, unapologetic owners, and many, many mistakes in execution and preparation.

sherry mancini

I was performing yesterday at Testo's in the lounge for the first time. What a beautiful restaurant. Our waiter was funny and personable, the food was fantastic. I am very particular with my sauce when ordering a pasta dish at restaurants and I have to say the Chicken Parm and pasta were delicious. Our duo "Class Act" are really hoping to be playing there again and enjoying a fantastic evening. Thank you to the entire staff for their wonderful service.

Joe DiCocco

The steak and mushrooms, stuffed shrimp are simple the best and cooked to perfection.

Helena Sliva

Unfortunately I have to give a star to be able to leave a review. Went to baby shower at Testo's and service was poor.. no butter at the table or at the buffet ( I asked the lady with glasses she said sure and NEVER brought the butter), for dessert NO spoons/forks or knife's to cut cake(s). Not sure how this place runs its business or how it's even in business. HORRIBLE!!

Kate Klein

Delicious!! Staff was attentive and food was scrumptious. Will def be back!
