This restaurant is one of the best in Stamford. If you are looking for a great Italian meal head down to Aria. The staff makes you feel like family.

“The best Italian in Fairfield County”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2012

The owner worked as a chef in Capri, Italy for 15 years. Also in New York.
The food is great, the ambiance great, desserts great. Everything is organic and prepared on the premises...

I have lived in Stamford for 15 years - "Italian food" is mostly Albanians or Greeks tricking the public to buy ketchup and pasta... Or the owners are using bright lights / trendy music to sell Apple-tinis / Mojitos at $15 to drunken corporate people - hoping the alcohol dims the poor taste of the overpriced food...., and sell them high profit margin pasta (see most places in downtown Stamford)

Most of my friends are Italian (from Westchester or Bronx), and would only eat home cooked food, and love the food here.
REAL Italian people would NEVER eat out at an ITALIAN restaurant.
But, I told my friends to try for the heck of it, and everything is cooked perfectly - from the risotto to the broccoli rab.
We have been multiple times, and for Fairfield County, it is simply the best Italian out there.

“Good regional Italian with flair”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2012

Located a short walk from the Zero Degrees hotel, this family run Italian restaurant has all the usual suspects on the menu but they are excellently presented. But what you should go here for are the specials. We had fabulous stuffed zucchini flowers and the grilled fish was to die for - so fresh and clean tasting. Also good desserts.

“YUM YUM and MORE YUM”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2012

We went here for Valentines day and have been back 4 times. Love this place. Has its own parking in the back. The Atmosphere here is fantastically rustic and the pasta is all home made and sauces that are unbelievably delicious... great wine list and the desert is always fantastic. Coffee too. In my opinion The BEST Northern Italian in Stamford. I will return. Maybe tomorrow. :)
