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.

I come to Stamford a few times a year for work. I always stop here for at least a dinner or two. The staff, owner, and customers are all incredibly friendly and it feels like a family meal when you dine. On top of the atmosphere, the food is top notch. As an Italian resident, I can honestly say this... More

Great for a Fine meal or to simply sit at the bar with a glass of wine and dine there. The Family ALWAYS treats you like Family! The food and the staff are as authentic as can be. Don't miss out on the Grilled Calamari or any of the great Handmade Pastas. Definitely don't forget to say hello to Telmo... More

Four of us ate most recently at the Columbus Park Trattoria this past weekend, and it was once again a delightful dining experience. The food, and especially the pasta, is excellent, service attentive and efficient. Ambience is pleasant, although given the space, tables are quite close together. The Trattoria is located in the heart of Stamford within easy walking distance... More

A terrific spot. Family owned and infused. Not trendy, but everything is fresh and well prepared. Fresh pasta made by the owners mother and aunt. Fresh fish. Breath pork and veal chops. Been going for 25 years, it has only gotten better.

My husband and I enjoyed a great meal at Columbus Park on a whim on a Saturday night with no reservation. We were surprised that we did not have to wait long for a table.

Each of us had an excellent meal. Salads and apps were also very good. Service was OK, but spotty. It almost seemed like nobody was assigned to our table. Food is worth the visit.

We were so impressed that they opened on a Sunday for Mother's Day. They were very accommodating to our large party. Food was very good and the wine choices were great. Servers were friendly and helpful.

We tried to come here last year when we were in town and it was closed for a private event. No trouble this year; we arrived early, a little after 5, no trouble seating at that hour for a party of two. I was disappointed in the bread they brought to the table; it seemed kind of dry and flavorles.... More
