Fantastic Place - Special Occasion
We went there for a special occasion and this restaurant far exceeded our expectations - which is a testament because our expectations were pretty high to begin with! We absolutely loved it! Fantastic food and even better service...they made us feel like we were the only people in the restaurant! Definitely ask to be seated in the wine cellar if you want a unique experience! Would definitely recommend this restaurant!

My family and I dined here for the first time this past Mother's Day, and we were truly impressed with the delicious food and great service. Our waiter was not only knowledgeable about every item on the menu, but he was incredibly personable as well. Each dish ordered was delicious, from the veal chop to the stuffed filet mignon, among others. We were given a complimentary plate of linguine with truffle sauce, which was so fragrant and delightful. That instantly became my favorite dish of the night. They were able to make adjustments to my grandmother's order and she raved about how tasty the sauce was (old school Italian family with discerning tastes, and we loved everything). Definitely will be back in the near future.

Service well below average.
Food was excellent, but the service left a lot to be desired. Had to request our menus. They forgot one salad we had ordered. After ordering wine, we had to find the waiter after waiting 15 minutes for him to bring it to the table, Waiter never asked if we wanted tea or coffee after our meal even though we had ordered a cake for an anniversary.
Not sure I would return based upon the service as this is a pricey restaurant.

Dined at the advice of my daughter who was there recently. Did not disappoint in any area. Since it was a Monday night service was extremely attentive. My veal castagnie dish was as good as I have ever experienced. More like steak than veal.. Would recommend the tuna tartare as an appetizer. Everything extremely satisfying right down to the coffee. Will return for all special occasions.

Pricey but worth it
Valbella, CT is at the top end of top restaurants but it's worth it. The food is excellent and portions are large. The service was perfect; excellent attention from Maitre D', waiters and bus boys. Lovely cheerful (white with small lights) ambience. Definitely a "go to" for a night out with friends or a special occasion.

Excellent top notch service & food. Has always been on the money on every visit

A Beautiful Spot
Valbella is one of those restaurants we reserve for special occasions - this time it was to share some good news with two close friends. I had blue point oysters (delicious) followed by pasta with sausage and broccoli rabe, my wife had a shrimp cocktail and a chicken dish she raved about, our friends had steak. the only nitpick is - as expected - the prices. I asked for a fruit-forward red and was offered a $150 bottle of wine - I asked for something less pricey and was given a $120 bottle. (Which when I looked it up on the internet later cost $60 - a 100 percent markup.) Jeeze! other than that - a great meal in a beautiful setting.

From the complimentary charcuterie and cheese to the dessert, the service, food, ambiance and wine was spectacular, as always. I had my usual, the Chilean sea bass, and it was amazing. We had a great bottle of wine from Cakebread. My date had a beef dish, I don't remember exactly what it was, but I tasted it and it was cooked to perfection.
The service is some of the finest around.
I always leave there impressed.

The interior of the restaurant
The interior of the restaurant was lovely and well maintained. My sister and I shared a special salad and had pastas for entrees. Hers was a seafood and mine was a filet mignon. Both were excellent. Service was somewhat slow, but overall I would give this a 4.5. Good for a special occasion.

Service for a charming night
A lovely setting with excellent service. Staff is attentive and thoughtful. Generous portions and fine setting. All made for a charming evening at Valbella!

How much do we pay for good food
While this restaurant certainly is top notch the prices are way out of line. Gnocchi delicious but a half order (10) for $20. Are u kidding me.

We went there for the first time (Just settled in Stamford) and can sum up the experience as: Perfect! everything is outstanding: the food and wine, the ambiance and the professional, warm and smooth service, with personal attention to every detail and desire. No need to look for top italian restaurant in Manhattan, the best is here and it's name is: Valbella.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is my wife's favorite restaurant and it's certainly in my top ten. Consistently wonderful food and service. I'll be back many times.

Yummy Anniversary Dinner
We had a great time celebrating our anniversary at Valbella's. Food is exceptional, very high end Italian and seafood/steaks. Service is attentive but not overbearing and courses were served slightly too quickly for such a high end restaurant, seemed that we should have had a more leisurely experience . Prices are out of this world but for a special occasion it is worth it. My only question is why do they need to have two exclamation points on the name of the restaurant? Otherwise, Fantastico!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (see, you don't need that many !'s)

The wine cellar is a special place for a special party...
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Me and my wife have been going to Valbella's for years...and we are never disappointed. The food is always good, we always leave wanting to come back again.
Upstairs is a little noisy, if you want quiet ask to sit in the wine cellar...very nice and cozy, and very quiet.

ALWAYS THE BEST
ALWAYS THE BEST from start to finsih. From the Valet parking to the host Nicky and Lino that greet you when you walk in, all the way to the best desserts anywhere. By far the best Napolean I've ever had. After 15 years of dining at this great place, it is still my favorite above any of the other retaurants in Greenwich, Westchester and N.Y.C.

Charmed I'm sure
Great experience ! The staff were professional, yet warm and accommodating.

From the greeting at the door
From the greeting at the door to the valet at the end of the night, everything was excellent. Food, wine, service and atmosphere were just perfect.

Truly wonderful always consistent, never disappoints.

Requested seating downstairs
Requested seating downstairs in wine cellar because upstairs is very lively and can get noisy. Wine cellar has a more intimate and cozy ambience. We were surrounded by their extensive selection of wines. Fireplace lit. Quiet and conducive to conversation. The 4 of us leisurely celebrated a birthday and an anniversary. Food was excellent. Service attentive but not overbearing or rushed. We've dined here several times but our experience last Sat night was exceptional.

A luncheon oasis
Although I am not the type of woman to revel in being called"belle" or "princess" the warmth was well intentioned, the service excellent and the food very very good. You feel transported far away from the nearby walgreen's into a gentler, more genteel world.

As always the food was spectacular.
As always the food was spectacular. Linguine in truffle sauce with shaved white truffles. Veal. The service and wine were equally wonderful. A very memorable evening.
