we arrived in Stamford as a stopover night before hitting the big apple. we chose a hotel from an online site uncertain as to what our experience wild be like. We walked around the corner and found a street of great food options. Having chosen the Columbus park Trattoria we were very impressed by the quality of the service and food.This is a restaurant which is family own and has been in existence foe the past 25 years. The passion for food and connection with the patrons seemed obvious. We felt the price was reasonable for the quality we received. If we lived closer than Australia we would be back!
