Authentic Italian food; reminds me of eating at my grandmother's who was from Naples. Have enjoyed everything I've eaten,,,,pasta dishes, veal dishes, seafood. Very good staff. A favorite place in Stamford!

Best Italian in stamford - period. Old school purveyors serve constantly great fare with unusual dishes as well. Be prepared to wait though.

I cannot say enough great things about this place. Definitely recommend the gnact gnact. You can also order the gnact gnact with whatever pasta was made fresh that day. HIGHLY recommend ordering whatever pasta is the freshest. Ask your server - they know best!

Extensive menu. Large selection of apps and entrees. Daily specials. Food was fantastic. Very attentive wait staff. It's always crowded because it's a great restaurant. Good wine selection. I highly recommend a visit.

I don’t think so...not for 2 on a Saturday. You might have a long wait, but, depending upon your patience, it will be worthwhile.
