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.

We don't visit this downtown Stamford restaurant too often and it's a shame because the food is delicious. Family owned and run for many years, you always get great food, great service and a good value for your money. The only problem is that so many people know about it, it's often difficult to get a table. Now that summer's... More

What a wonderful gem in downtown Stamford. Our family had a great experience here. My wife enjoyed the Penne Vodka dish which was the best we've ever had. Our oldest daughter had spaghetti with clams which was tasty. Our youngest stayed traditional with spaghetti with red sauce--a light, fresh dish with excellent flavor. I had the homemade ravioli with lobster... More

My husband and I have been customers for years..... always great food, always great service, always friendly atmosphere, always welcoming. The prices are high, on the par with everything in downtown Stamford. Overall Columbus Park Trattoria, in my opinion, is The Best Italian Restaurant in Stamford.
