- Our Story -

Celebrating 10 Years of Service


Deborah Lepri, owner of Trattoria da Lepri, has taken the philosophical approach of producing fresh, gourmet food utilizing local grass-fed beef, fresh seafood, and seasonal, organic vegetables from both local farms and their very own garden. With these ingredients, our Chefs create spectacular, flavorful dishes, while also encouraging an environmentally conscious approach. We also pride ourselves on our expertly crafted cocktails, local brews, and extensive wine list.

Trattoria da Lepri offers gourmet Italian cuisine, fresh seafood, and exquisite beef in a relaxed atmosphere reminiscent of the classic Italian Trattoria.

“One of the best Italian restaurants in Connecticut.”

“Trattoria da Lepri has put the small town of Ellington on the map. This quaint little Trattoria is a gem.”

“Lepri likes to play around with fresh local ingredients, innovating but never stepping out of the classic Trattoria tradition she has chosen to follow for her restaurant.”
