Perfect gin and tonic. Delicious baby spinach salad with candied walnuts and strawberry vinegret. Amazing salmon piccata. Fixed menu for restaurant week but great choices for an excellent value. Also had tiramisu for dessert which was wonderful but not part of the fixed menu. Crowded but very friendly wait staff and everything served in a timely manor. Would definitely recommend... More

We booked at Columbus Park an old favorite for my daughter's birthday last night. Service was slow with a medium size crowd which could be a staffing issue. We needed to prompt or track down a server to order drinks, refill water glasses and secure final bill. Shout out for bringing the bday girl a Tiramisu w/candle and singing though... More

One night out of five I choose to eat a bit more fancy so decided to visit this Italian place. I have been traveling for the last 20 years and this was one of the most disappointing dinners I have ever had. Service was almost non-existent, really had to twist an arm to serve a beer or take my order.... More

Really nice and efficient customer service, decent american italian food, slightly to much olive oil on everything, but good. Had a trout and it tasted well. Classical cosy interior. But take care its not cheap

This trattoria has a cozy atmosphere, great service and good Italian Food. I ordered a pasta dish and it was good, as was the salad. One concern, the pasta was swimming in olive oil, something that some people might like-if you like it a bit lighter it would be worth asking.

Had eaten here before and enjoyed it so we decided to go back. The restaurant is small, the noise level was ridiculous and even though they seemed to have an adequate amount of help the service was horrible. Very slow, extremely inattentive, almost like we weren't there. Thinking this might have been our last visit which is sad because the... More

This restaurant is located in downtown Stamford, in an area comprised mainly of Pubs, sports bars and similar establishments. That is not a negative, it's just that it is a large cut above its neighbors when it comes to food. For the most part, the menu features traditional pasta dishes, as well as well-prepared fish, chicken and meat entrees. On... More

We've eaten at their restaurants for over 30 years. They have superb Italian food with a family touch. The mother still makes the pasta by hand. Never been disappointed. Weekends require reservations.
