Went here with a co-worker because it looked so inviting and we were so disappointed. My colleague ordered a chicken Parmesan sandwich. The chicken was like leather. It was dry and hard and the cheese wasn't melted. I ordered the vegetable stack and it was mushy and lacked flavor. The service was just ok. On the plus side when we... More

For third year this sidewalk spot sandwiched between Lucky Burger and Tigen's has been our go to place on Bedford Street. Sitting on the ever expanding cafe-row watching the scene and eating well prepaird food ant super prices is as magnetic as the ambiance on a good day. The service is usually good, even when busy (usually is).

A great choice for Italian food especially after "normal" dinner hours because they are open late! There is a great patio with plenty of seating, and it always seems to be busy. Now I know why! Inexpensive but delicious food and fast service. The only (small) disappointment is that I ordered a margherita pizza, thinking it would have fresh mozzarella... More

Outdoor cafe in downtown Stamford. Menu is mostly salads and pizzas ,nothing special to eat at this place. In the evening, it is very dark, could hardly see the menu or the food i was eating. Service was ok until the bill came. I was overcharged for items in which we did not ask for. A $65 bill became $111.... More

We stopped in last week for a nightcap under the stars! We told waiter we were not eating this time, just drinks, and he still gave us the best outside seating, under the heat lamps by the street! It was awesome...we people watched, cuddled and enjoyed our warm Irish coffee! But we have eaten there, and everything we ever ordered... More

We had a very enjoyable lunch. They have a large menu- salads, soups, panini sandwiches, pasta, and pizzas. We started off with a full Caesar salad- large enough to share. It was very fresh and tasty. Then we both ordered panini sandwiches- I had the vegetarian and my husband had grilled chicken parm. We also shared a Margherita pizza. All... More

We go here often, and have never been disappointed. The salads are especially good, with a wide variety. Wonderful desserts. The outdoor cafe is excellent in summer. The cafe is located in the heart of downtown Stamford, across the street from the famous Avon Theater. Mike L.

Wonderful place to sit outside and people watch while you dine. Favorite are their Panini's and white-wine Sangria, although their pasta dishes are very good as well.

Great pizza, salads, and pasta. Very reasonable prices, especially enjoyable in Summer when many outdoor tables are set up. This is the heart of the restaurant scene downtown. Right across the street from the Avon theater - art movie house - so very convenient for a movie night.
