“Visiting with friends”
Reviewed August 24, 2014

We were in town visiting old friends. They knew this place from it's previous location, frequented it often so made reservations for our dinner for 6 of us. It's in a Hampton Inn, very spacious and well lit, and it was full of travelers and locals enjoying dinner. We were happy to be able to meet one of the owners. Every app and entree' was good to the last bite. We finished off a bottle of wine and a great time visiting, no rush here. Friendly, fast service. Do yourself a favor when in Stamford and try this place.

“A Must if You Love Italian Cuisine”
Reviewed August 22, 2014

Ive celebrated many life events at the old location ever since I stumbled across this hidden gem 5 years ago. Last night, I went there for dessert. My cannoli was brought to me with a birthday candle and two staff members singing Happy Birthday. How sweet that was! It was the Perfect way to end my birthday celebration. I left planning my next trip to Villa Italia; my wedding anniversary next week!

“Consistent”
Reviewed August 14, 2014

I thought that this hidden gem once they relocated in town would have suffered a set back, but not the case. The entire staff along with the new additions have transitioned very well.

Good food, nice atmosphere, always friendly staff good for lunch and dinners.

You really need to try this place

“Gluten-free handled, very good bar, lovely room for lunch”
Reviewed August 2, 2014

We visit family every year and always stay at the Hampton Inn which is very comfortable. I tend just to ignore hotel restaurants, but friends in Stamford knew this restaurant from its old location and we tried it for drinks one night and then for lunch. Very light and pretty inside, not the usual dark or rustic Italian restaurant decor. We had drinks in the bar one night, lively and very good drinks, very comfortable, very friendly. Lunch was also very good. We will definitely be coming here on future visits. Handled gluten-free but could do better at that - limited choices.

Same owners as before they moved. Same great food, same great value. The new place is bigger as well as comfortable. The staff is cheerful and friendly. The service is good. This place gets busy so try to get there early
