Cruisin' Connecticut

 
 
 
 

Bella' Gio Ristorante, Cheshire

The music was romantic, ranging from "Besame Mucho" to "Mambo Italiano" to "La Vie en Rose." Our servers — Esmeralda one night, Korab another — were personable and attentive. Wines were priced fairly ($7-$9, $24-$70), like our heady, tannic 2012 Casa Lapostolle Carmenère, Rapel Valley, Chile ($25).
