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.

The risotto was slightly undercooked. 1 had a veal chop which was very good. My wife had cavatelli bolognase which she truly... More

Recently dined at Columbus Park celebrating my wife's Cousin's Birthday with her family. Appetizers & entrees were delicious & served hot - my wife loved her Mediterranean Sea Bass & I enjoyed home made ravioli.

The service and Food were excellent! I couldn't decide what to order, the server was very helpful and flexible. My husband let the server know what I was in the mood for and they created the most delicious meal for me. I ate every last morsel! The homemade Cavatelli and Gnocchi were A+! Everything was perfect from beginning to end,... More

Had dinner here with my husband and two adult children. We did not have reservations (which I highly recommend due to the small size of the restaurant). Nonetheless, we were greeted warmly and quickly accommodated. The service was wonderful and the food was great! You'll pay a little more but it's well worth it. My daughter and I had two... More
