Our party of four ate here on a Monday nite. The restaurant was busy but not packed. Fried calamari was excellent, eggplant parm appetizer was not the traditional recipe (no ricotta) but was tender and delicious. Spinach /cheese ravioli in butter sauce was excellent - although an entree portion is pretty rich. My wife had the trout which was very... More

Although its been around for almost 30 years, this downtown restaurant remains at the top of the list of restaurants in Stamford for good reason; they offer outstanding food. My wife and I stopped by one a Friday night around 8 pm (with a reservation) and had to wait a few minutes for a table. Since the noise level inside... More

We walked a minute around the corner to Columbus Park Trattoria. This is an excellent restaurant with first class Italian food. If you happen to be in Stamford the Pasta here is excellent

The loud could be due to a local restaurant special week, but it was packed last night...bump into your chair and step on your foot packed. Food was very good...though pretty rushed service - though friendly and courteous. Fish was excellent, fresh, light.

Located in the heart of Stamford, this restaurant has a well-merited reputation for excellence in its Italian cuisine. We ate here with another couple and found the food to be genuine and very well prepared. The service was very good. The restaurant is not large and the tables are somewhat close together (but like an Italian restaurant). The restaurant tends... More

Whenever there is a special occasion, this is a first choice. Only problem is it's rather small with close tables.

On July 23rd after work I decided to stop for dinner downtown, this turned into the worst experience in life, waiter yelled at me and the manager ignored the behavior which was totally racism. I ask everyone not to patronized this type of restaurant.

Liked the ambiance, quiet and small enough to have conversations. Food, especially the pasta, was delicious. They were out of three desserts, which seemed very odd. Service was very slow and we frequently had to flag down our server.

Two nights in a row last week. First night a large group in the restaurant made it very loud and uncomfortable; not true the following evening. Really special veal dish-it was delicious and certainly worth the cost. However, the brushcetta was extremely disappointing and certainly not worth the money for three little pieces of bread. The fried zucchini is always... More
