The food is fabulous here!!!! It's an old neighborhood restaurant that moved from the East side of Stamford over to more spacious quarters in the West End. You'll know you hit a home run as soon as the bread basket comes out, filled with delicious, homemade, doughy knots of bread that you could eat all day. But don't fill up,... More

We didn't expect to find a quality Italian restaurant attached to a Hampton Inn, but we did. Tried it mainly out of convenience and were surprised with an interesting menu, pleasantly attentive service, nice ambiance, and some very good food. I had eggplant rollatini, which I love, but don't see often. The eggplant was tender and not bitter, filled generously... More

A friend in Stamford used to eat at Villa Italia when it was a stand-alone restaurant and was eager to try it in its location at the Hampton Inn building. She loved the food at the former site and wondered if it would be as good at the Hampton Inn--it was! We met for an early dinner and noticed the... More

Usually restaurants attached to smallish hotels (Hampton Inn) are mediocre, but Villa Italia was a restaurant that could stand on its own. The entrance through a noisy bar was not encouraging, but the dining room was large and very nice with views out over the river park. Harvest Lasagna was delicious and too large to finish. Caesar salad and steamed... More

I eat there frequently. The food is always excellent and very consistent. The service is first class and the ambiance is very pleasant. The bar is quite active and there is live music on certain nights. It is family run with close attention to detail. I recommend it highly but I hope too many don't flock there making it difficult...

Nine of us had lunch recently. The service was wonderful and the food delicious and very reasonable. The décor is lovely and it is very convenient in Stamford. All nine guests raved about their entre which ran from sandwich wraps to hot chicken and veal dishes. Parking is in the attached Hampton Inn hotel with a short walk to the... More
