“A Must Try!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2012

Columbus Park is one of those places that I will always happily return on any occasion. No matter what you order it will be amazing. The service is great and all members of stuff very helpful. The prices are on the higher end but it's worth every single penny. I think that along with Sienna Ristorante, Columbus Park has the best italian food in Stamford.

“A must for good Italian food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2012

I have been here a few times in the past. Always has been very good. This last time I was in a group of about 35 people. The staff handled it wonderfully. Appetizers were excellent, shrimp with avocado, a cured meat and cheese platter, calamari, all good. As an entree ii had a homemade pasta with fava beans, sausage and cherry peppers, wow! Everyone was quite pleased with their food order.

“Consistently great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2012

It's no secret Stamford has more than it's share of Italian Restaurants, and restaurants in general. Columbus Park Trattoria continues to be a standout for my wife and I. Regardless of the season, time of day, how busy the place is, or how many people are in your party, the food and service have been great. A month previous to my most recent visit, I mentioned how much I had enjoyed an oyster appetizer that was on the menu for new years eve. I was told to give a call before I come in next time, and the would make it up for me. Now I'm by NO means a regular here. Maybe once a month if I'm lucky. When I walked in last night the FIRST thing I was asked was "Hey, why didn't you call about the oyster?"

That type of treatment and service, coupled with their GREAT home made food will keep me coming back over, and over. I would recommend this place to anyone.

“Private Party”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2012

I was invited to a private party at this restaurant. We were in a room on the second floor that was perfect for our party of 24, lots of space to meet and greet. Excellent bar, excellent service, excellent food.
