“AWESOME Restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

I love this little Italian Restaurant. The food is outstanding and you are given very generous portions. The staff is friendly and happy to help and answer questions. When we use to stay right down the road I would make it a point to eat at this restaurant. I would tell everybody I knew that if they were going to be staying in Stamford that they needed to eat here and that they wouldn't be disappointed and I know that you won't be disappointed either!

“Rather an Italian takeout place, than an eat-in restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

I can't say much good about it, it is a mediocre place that makes pizza, and mainly thrives on its delivery. The choice of food is average, same Italian food that can be found everywhere. Prices are not bad. So basically if you are on the run and want a cheaper bite, you can try it.
It has a diner sort of ambiance, only on Sunday night it had 5 people in it, + the staff.So pretty dead business, at least it looks like one.
On the upside, this restaurant offers many choices of coupons and discounts, so if you sign in for their list they will mail you some, to lure you back in. Otherwise, I am not sure if I would go back.

“CRAPPY Service and below average food!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

the place was packed and the staff was obnoxious , doing the diners a favor as they are racking up the $$$$$$
this is not dining it is a pizza place with an attitude... hey just a reminder this is STAMFORD Connecticut and not Italy or even New York. So your pizza and your food is just edible....
