Went there for a family party and had a nice dinner. Service seemed a little off. It was still quite acceptable. The food was good all the way around. Chicken Scarpiello was not what I was accustomed to. It came with a dark brown sauce. No potatoes or peppers and onions, no sausage. Some of the dinners were ravioli which... More

This is great little trendy Italian restaurant right on Main street in Stamford, CT. The staff was cordial and very accommodating. My son had the Veal Chop, my wife had the lamb, and I had the Chicken Sorrentino. We all felt this was some of the best prepared, tasty Italian food we have ever had. All dishes were prepared perfectly... More

I chose this restaurant because of the high rating on tripadvisor and boy oh boy it did not disappoint. We sat at the bar because we wanted to watch some of the game. Not that this is a sports bar in any way shape or form but we just wanted to see some of a game. We started with a... More

Came to dinner with a business convention, went back because it was excellent. Had the Swordfish for dinner and it was incredible! Went back for the Rigatoni Vodka because I had heard such good things and was not disappointed. At first glance it seems pricy, but the food and service is definitely worth it!

Zucchini was amazing but the fettuccine w/ shrimp was heavily salted and impossible to finish. Others had marvelous squid grilled and plated whole. The Friday nite noise level in this tiny restaurant made speech impossible unless you were lucky enough to have the corner table in the front of the restaurant

Columbus Park over the years has been one of my favorite spots in Stamford, but I was quite disappointed the last time I dined there in August 2014. The service was slow and the food was mediocre. The appetizers were better than the entree. I am encouraged by some of the more recent reviews and I hope the management has... More
