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.

Our second meal here and we have been disappointed both times. While the food is great the service has always been lacking and yesterday was the same. On our first visit you could tell there were regulars that were taken care of, but our table was not. Yesterday was the same. They forgot our appetizer and the wine took ten... More

I don't know how we hadn't been to this restaurant before -- given how long it has been around and the great reviews. We went for an early dinner before a show at The Palace Theater and had a wonderful dinner! Our waiter (Klever Calderon) was incredibly attentive and offered several recommendations when we asked. We ordered the Burrata e... More
