Small family owned place with truly enjoyable Italian cuisine. A "must stop" place for me anytime I'm in the Stamford area. Upscale but relaxed atmosphere with wonderful service and very good food. Owner Chef Stefano is very friendly and enjoyable to visit with. Be sure to try the Pasta Fagoli soup, it's exceptional !!

Great quality for beyond reasonable prices. The appetizer portions were generous (burrata and tomato was fabulous) and they have a delicious selection of breads. Great pasta and seafood dishes but the dessert was absolutely the hi light of our meal. The creama tiramisu was the best I've ever had- so decadent! Would absolutely recommend this restaurant, and will be coming... More

Excellent meal. Accompanied local friends to their favorite restaurant. Very attentive staff. Nice wine list with good choices of American and European wines. Best veal Parmesan I have ever had. Secret cheese from Sicily instead of mozzarella . Tasty desserts.

My out of town friend thought the food was great as did my wife and I. The veal chops were especially good as was the pasta. Although we all wanted wine we had drinks instead as the wine prices were way too high...about 3 times retail. It will keep us from going back too often as the wine price were... More

The food was good and so was the service. It was a very leisurely meal although the restaurant wasn't full. It was a pleasant experience and we would return. There is parking but the entrance is hard to spot. The restaurant is slightly off the beaten track but certainly worth the visit?

This place is not very crowded - but eat around the bar and you will have most wonderful evening. It's family owned and run - warm, including - the food is very tasty.

My husband and I were stuck in traffic on I95 Oct. 9th traveling up the coast and jumped off to eat and wait out the traffic. Aria, is an absolute GEM! Stefano, the chef/owner, made a dish for me that was not on the menu and was out of this world!! It’s family owned and operated, and we felt like... More

Went on Christmas Eve with my family. Reservations for 7 pm. Told if we arrive over 5 minutes late - they won't hold our table. Arrived 6:45 to an empty restaurant. Five minutes after receiving menus we were asked to order. Feeling rushed, we quickly chose 2 cold appetizers & 1 fried Calamari along with 2 bottles of wine. The... More

The staff is excellent at this restaurant and the owner is attentive. They are a fun and lively group. The food is solid across the board. You are likely leaving this place saying the food was good but I had a great experience because of the staff.
