In the heart of downtown Stamford, Columbus Park is the destination for those who appreciate fine Italian cuisine. One of three family-owned restaurants in Fairfield County, Columbus Park was voted “Best Italian Restaurant in Stamford” and consistently receives high ratings from food critics. Known for its chicken Scarpariello, home made pastas, fine service and artwork, Columbus Park can accommodate private events with up to 65 people in its private dining room, overlooking the greenery of Columbus Park. An added benefit is the outdoor seating that allows “al fresco” dining. When in the mood for elegantly prepared Italian food with exceptional ingredients, visit Columbus Park. With an extensive wine list, warm service and beautiful décor, you’ll be assured of a wonderful dining experience.

What a perfect venue..

This restaurant is one of the best Italian restaurant in town (Top 3 in my opinion). Perfect for a night out with your partner, family or any special occasion. Or just for a business lunch. Also they have a private room upstairs that is large enough for at least 50 ppl or more I'd say. The... read more

We had the rehearsal dinner for our wedding upstairs. When creating the menu, there were many options to choose from and they had plenty of vegetarian dishes. The staff was wonderful and the food was delicious!

We ate outside with the cool summer weather. Our dinner was very good and the wait staff was attentive to our needs, even though we were the only ones sitting outside. My family enjoyed their dinner and my swordfish was very tasty.

Service was great, but the food was the superstar. We weren't impressed with the initial service but once we were settled the waitress introduced herself, brought the bread, and took our drink orders. She was prompt on getting back to us during the meal and the water glasses were constantly being refilled. The meal itself was fantastic, I ordered a... More

He asked about beverages and returned with an excellent Montepulciano...an excellent choice and generous serving. very good bread and olive oil followed while we decided what to eat. My wife chose the salmon, which she said was excellent. I had... More

The best way to screw your special day. I read all the family like treatment reviews and thought this is the place to celebrate your anniversary.

I recently scheduled a private event at Columbus Park Trattoria and not only was the food amazingly good, but it was presented nicely and the staff was extremely accommodating.

I can't help but order the rigatoni vodka every time. It's too good. My husband orders a variety of stuff which I always try, and it's always extremely good. And a very nice feel, great service. Make a reservation.
