Excellent Italian cuisine - the Villa Italia restaurant was located on East Main Street and is now on 26 Mill River Street in West Stamford off of West Main Street in the Hampton Inn. The food is traditional Italian but the staff always surprises us with their great specials of the day and standard menu fare. The pizzas are thin crust and the pasta dishes are all wonderful. We have been going there for years and we have many favorites. I love the Zuppa di Pesce which is so flavorful and loaded with fish, shrimps, scallops, mussels and clams in a delicious broth. In a recent visit, we had the Shrimp Scampi and Gnocchi in a Bolognese Sauce for the main course, Stuffed Chopped Clams in the shell for an appetizer and a special dessert which consisted of a meringue topped with caramel sauce, homemade ice cream with caramelized bananas - everything was cooked to perfection. I cannot say anything bad about Villa Italia - great food and great service - a family run business which has been in existence for 30+ years! Even the homemade Italian Bread Rolls and Foccicia is wonderful and comes with the meal. Yummy!!!
