There is only one Arezzo.
It’s in Westport. Since opening nearly 2 years ago at the corner of the Post Road and Riverside Avenue — a location that over the years had seen many restaurants come and go — the Italian place with a killer patio out back has become one of our town’s most popular spots.
The caponata earns raves. The sauces are fantastic.
For 15 years — at his Arezzo Ristorante & Bar in New York, then at his New Canaan restaurant — customers have asked Ceballos to package his signature items.
But he worried about quality control. Now — assured of full control over the ingredients, preparation and production — he’s good to go.
In addition to the caponata and sauces (garden tomato, classic marinara and fra diavolo), Arezzo Authentic Fine Foods will include biscotti and lemon sauce (great for salads, vegetables and fish).
Westporters who know restaurants know Arezzo. Soon, the rest of the country — at least, those who love fine Italian food — will know it too.
