My wife, daughter and I ate here the night before Thanksgiving and enjoyed an excellent meal. Portions were large, even for dishes like Osso Bucco and Short Ribs over Risotto, and the quality was terrific. We each had the house wines which were very reasonably priced and good [but not great]. We'll probably order a bottle next time. Fortunately we... More

This is an excellent traditional Italian Resturant in Stamford. The only problem is the wait. Because it is so popular there is always a 30-45 minute wait time. But I have to say it is worth it!

Local Shippan gem, packed most nights. Usually stick to the daily specials. Generous wine by the glass pours. Even good for takeout treat.

No pretense. Simple dishes, done well at an affordable price. The fried baby artichokes were a homerun. I will get that everytime I return. Get them. Amazing. Simple. Beautiful. And a very good rustic dish. Chicken on the bone with sweet cheery peppers. Polletto Scarpariello. $ 18. Just a perfect dish. Save room for dessert

The restaurant is such a great find, no reservations unless you have a party of six or more. They have a little waiting area and offer you a glass of wine! The mini meatball appetizer is delicious!!! You could probably eat two. All of the pasta and sauce is home ade, the seafood is fresh! Definitely try to go and... More

I had the best mussels,salad and the most delicious chicken with mushrooms and artichokes. My friend who was born in Italy can't seem to find a good Italian restaurant until I took him here. He said the food was really delicious and the desserts to die for!! Anyone in Stamford should not miss a chance to eat lunch or dinner.
