“Great Italian food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

Lunch with business associates was perfect. The service is the best you will experience. The waitstaff is extremely attentive. They seem to know exactly what you need before asking. Presentation and quality of food is second to none. Expensive but well worth the experience. I give this restaurant my top recommendation. Expect the best! If you are not familiar with the area, I suggest you call ahead for directions to a parking lot near by. Reservations are suggested as the dining area is small.

“The Best Italian Food in Stamford”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

This family owned restaurant has been serving the best Italian food in Stamford for decades. Located in the downtown area, it offers an array of dishes, each with home-made pasta. Although a bit pricy, once you taste the food, you'll agree it's worth the price. Service is attentive. Parking is tight, but there's a nearby municipal parking garage.

“Pleasantly surprised”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

We had not been to Columbus Park in many years, but it is very convenient for dinner after the movies at the Majestic Theatre. We decided to give it a try with two other couples. We had a nice table by the window in front. The only problem was that the waiter had put two of the appetizers into the computer incorrectly. It was quickly remedied and the waiter was apologetic. The service was very good, water glasses were filled often, and the food was excellent. My friend and I shares a wonderful Tricolore salad and two entrees, a trout and chicken dish. Both were very good. A nice cappucino topped off my meal. No real complaints and would go back again.

“Planning giving up your wallet at the door”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

This restaurant is really not as good as it reputation around town. This is an example of poor service and just working off it reputation. I was dinning with a friend and we had to keep chasing down the waiter. I had the veal and it was tough and dry. The sauce was not and the pasta was okay but $85 for dinner (that was for my part of the meal), not worth it . The entire check was close to $200. They think they are in Manhattan, but they haven't realized they are not. My friend had the lasagna and he said that the he had better at the Olive Garden and that wasn't that good.
