always a good meal - small location so need reservations - parking is tricky as it is downtown so its a busy spot. Good menu and nice selection - good service. Enjoyable meal whenever you go there.

I come to Stamford a few times a year for work. I always stop here for at least a dinner or two. The staff, owner, and customers are all incredibly friendly and it feels like a family meal when you dine. On top of the atmosphere, the food is top notch. As an Italian resident, I can honestly say this... More

Great for a Fine meal or to simply sit at the bar with a glass of wine and dine there. The Family ALWAYS treats you like Family! The food and the staff are as authentic as can be. Don't miss out on the Grilled Calamari or any of the great Handmade Pastas. Definitely don't forget to say hello to Telmo... More

Four of us ate most recently at the Columbus Park Trattoria this past weekend, and it was once again a delightful dining experience. The food, and especially the pasta, is excellent, service attentive and efficient. Ambience is pleasant, although given the space, tables are quite close together. The Trattoria is located in the heart of Stamford within easy walking distance... More

A terrific spot. Family owned and infused. Not trendy, but everything is fresh and well prepared. Fresh pasta made by the owners mother and aunt. Fresh fish. Breath pork and veal chops. Been going for 25 years, it has only gotten better.

My husband and I enjoyed a great meal at Columbus Park on a whim on a Saturday night with no reservation. We were surprised that we did not have to wait long for a table.

Each of us had an excellent meal. Salads and apps were also very good. Service was OK, but spotty. It almost seemed like nobody was assigned to our table. Food is worth the visit.
