Visited this eatery back in mid-October 2013 and was quite impressed with all: food, service and ambiance. Reservations are suggested since the restaurant is quite small- about seven or so tables. Though small, the seating is comfortable and not loud at all, which was very nice! We were seated promptly and met with an extremely knowledgeable staff. We ordered the... More

Charming and intimate Italian restaurant that is a lovely dining experience. Had a fabulous Penne with Porcini and Portobello mushrooms. Friends has the pasta with figs and pears. Yum, Yum! Calamari with zucchini delicious starter. Beautifully presented Gelato desserts. Again a double YUM! Owner is charming and service was great. Love this place. Our favorite Italian restaurant.

Emme has become one of our go to restaurants! We have dinner there several times a month or whenever the yen for the best home made italian food overtakes us. The food is marvelous, the atmosphere warm and friendly and the service is terrific. It's not inexpensive but very reasonable for the quality of the meals.

I've been to Tuscany and other parts of Italy, but truly this lasagna made by the chef/owner was pure heaven....none of the traditional "rubber" pasta lasagna that we see so often in the U.S. Everything is fresh and made from scratch, even the mozzarella. This restaurant is truly an undiscovered gem, but if you want to try this lasagna, you... More

Needed a place to eat after a concert. Very pricy with small portions. Food was average. Everything was ala cart.

I am an Italian, living in Stamford for many years. I've eaten in almost all the restaurants in the area so I can certainly offer a local's perspective. Emme is truly a wonderful restaurant with delicious authentic Italian food. Please pay no attention to the poor reviews. Those are written by people who go to restaurants with an attitude looking...

This place is small, with quite pleasant decor. We all ordered different things, and everything from appetizer salads (hearts of palm, in particular) to chicken to gnocchi were all prepared very nicely. We will return, but hope that the waiter (owner?) will be in a better mood. He never made eye contact, and his grouchiness did take away (slightly) from... More
