“Chicken Scarpiello”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2012

My father insisted he take me to this restaurant to try the chicken scarp. Well, I'm glad he did! It was very good! We went for lunch, so the portion was half the size of a dinner. I didn't have the spaghetti with it because I didn't want the pasta. I tried the bread...I wish is was a little fresher. Overall, it was a good spot.

“Reliable choice with consistently good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 29, 2012

I have been coming to Pellicci's for years (around ten years, which is but a small portion of the number of the many decades it has been open). I never come away disappointed. The decor seems to date from the 1950s, it is true, but that is part of its charm. The food (Italian) is made on the premises and uniformly tasty -- not gourmet quality, but excellent comfort food. The eggplant entree is a special favorite, as is the seafood pizza. The prices are very fair.

Pellicci's is a family restaurant and you are likely to see many families there. They do an excellent job serving large groups. Go and fee comfortable and well taken care of!

“Best family run Italian spot - Hidden Gem, hands down”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2012

Order the chicken scarpariello. I promise you, you will not be disappointed! The hot antipasto is amazing too if you have a buc h of people to share with. Portions are generous, staff is wonderful, and willing to make any changes you request. They chicken scarp is the standard by which I judge all others... and so far, none have compared.

“Family Style Italian”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2012

I moved away from Stamford many many years ago. Pellici's was a main stay then and apparently still is today. This restaurant has survived generations despite the obvious decline of the neighborhood around it.

Back in the day you had Pellici's and across the street, the Brass Rail. Both served great italian and pizzas. Now only Pellici's remains and the food is just as good as I remember.

“Large Italian Portions”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2011 via mobile

The personal pizza could easily feed two people. Sandwiches are very filling and goid. We tried the sausage with peppers and the Italian sub.
