Took my wife for a special occasion. Poor experience. Service was poor, very rushed- we felt like it was all about turning notables as fast as possible. Food very average- do not think we will be going back.

Went to the Madonia to celebrate a 40th Wedding Anniversary on a Saturday night. Waited a long time to be seated at the table followed by an even longer time to be waited upon. Choice of menu was good but the food that came out was not up to the expected standard. I had the chard skirt steak which came... More

Had eaten here once back in April and remembered it as being a pleasant experience. Not so much this time. Service was abysmal, food was mediocre at best – not what one would expect paying the prices they charge. Hostess making her rounds to ask if everything was okay reminded us more of a drill sergeant – wouldn’t have dared... More

Was driving up the highway and found this place for lunch. Food was excellent, and you really need to check out their menu to see. Roasted chicken sandwich was yummy and my wife really enjoyed her Eggplant Piadina. Service was also good. If you are in the area, you should stop by for either lunch or dinner!

We took in Madonia Restaurant because it is a long standing favorite of locals in the Stamford CT area, not far for the heart of the town and theater. Service was pleasant and attentive. Menu selections provided a nice range of italian pastas, seafood and beef.There were six in our party and everyone was quite with their selection. Two kinds... More

We stopped here on our way home from Gettysburg for an early dinner. The restaurant was easy to reach from the Merritt Parkway. We ate outdoors, on a nice patio. The waiter was very friendly and helpful. The food was excellent. Two of us ordered from the new tasting menu; the eggplant parmesan was excellent. I had the branzino fish,... More

This is a great restaurant to meet friends or business associates. They have a nice private outdoor patio and the food is very good. It is a bit pricey and the drinks are expensive so be prepared to drop about $200 for 2 people.

I has been awhile since I went to this restaurant, but a recent trip truly surprised me. The food was excellent. We had spaghetti alla chitarra with a wild boar sauce. For appetizer we had their special crab cakes. Pollo alla Milanese was also excellent. The prices are reasonable and the wine list is very good. Many reasonably priced bottles.... More

We were driving to Caramoor and decided to have lunch before the concert. I heard a lot about the place but have never been there. So. We walked in. Nobody upfront. The restaurant is almost empty. After waiting for 5 minutes, I just started walking around in hope to find somebody to seat us. Mind you, this reataurant is listed... More
