Sometimes things happen for a reason. After my not so warm welcome at Cafe' Sylvium I chose to try Columbus Park as my colleague originally suggested. Nice, quaint place, warm and friendly welcome with a bar for a person on business to enjoy a nice meal and some red wine. The menu had several great choices from pasta to a... More

I went with a group of 8 ladies for a bachelorette party in the private dining room upstairs where we took a cooking class with Maria. I wasn't sure at first if this would be entertaining enough for such an event, but it was FANTASTIC! We all really enjoyed it! Maria was so sweet with us (a group of 30-somethings,... More

The food is wonderful. Classic good Italian with Osso Bucco being a favorite. They also do a super job with the fish.

Stopped for dinner. The place was very loud so we sat outside. Service was very good. Both of our dinner were disappointing. The meat ravioli of the day was bland. The clams in olive oil and garlic were severely lacking in the garlic. All I could taste was olive oil. Salad was delicious.

Had a quiet table in the back of the restaurant. Food is very good to excellent. Prices fair. Service excellent. Daily specials add to the menu choices. Reservations needed. Street parking is tight; might have to use a garage. In short, you won't go wrong eating there.

I've been to Columbus Park many times. This is a classic, upper scale east coast Italian restaurant. You can order off the menu or ask for something custom. They will fall over backwards to try and honor your request. Case in point: they did not have gnocchi on the menu even though many nights they do. We asked about the... More

We've been here many times and we keep on coming back because the food, atmosphere and service are fantastic. Yes, due to its location downtown-ish not everyone appreciates that this place is a nicer and a little more formal but that doesn't take away from what makes this place worth the visit. Food: Tuna tartar is great, wine recommendations are... More

I visited this restaurant with my former chairman some years ago and found the food to be fantastic. I've since been back several times over the past year and honestly don't understand the allure.

We had a lovely celebration for 8 on a Wednesday evening. They waited for us and we enjoyed delicious specials - salmon, lobster ravioli, clams, fried calamari, to name a few items. Best Italian restaurant in Stamford. but hard to find street parking.
