Excellent establishment! This was my go to restaurant in Stamford and I had to stop in while I was home. Everything was just as good as I remembered and the wine list left nothing to be desired. Excellent as always!
I love this place. Great menu and excellent food and service. I went on date night but I am going to rent the second floor for a business event / dinner.
Good atmosphere, good food. My local favorite.
Loud and if you like cold pizza you'll love it...food was cold and service was only okay. wouldn't go back.
Lobster shrimp ravioli not so great! My friend said the wild salmon was excellent -- I should've ordered the pizza 😢
Fantastic waitstaff and fabulous food. Outstanding
Food was great. Service was a little slow, but friendly. Great happy hour!
Had a great meal here. Love the space and the food is very good. A little pricey for some items (e.g. $12 for a tiny serving of meatballs) but very fair for others like pasta and the kids pastas. Also nice that on Sunday night they do half off bottles of wine, although it took them time to track down the bottle we ordered. Our server was great though and more than made up for it.
Went for Mother's Day, resturant ambience was really nice I would go back for drinks and apps
Great Resturant, great servers and staff. Very accommodating. We will be back.
Keep up the good work.
I am not a fan of the new menu! More expensive less food
Excellent food and service for a reasonable price. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a great restaurant in Stamford.
Great food and overall positive experience. They messed up our appetizer and gave it to another table by accident so the table next to us got their food before us though we ordered first. Beside that, the bruchetta was great and the orchiette was perfect. I would eat there again. My husband loved the special which was a clam and spaghetti dish. The food quality and taste is superb. We would eat there again.
Everything was delicious! The short rib tacos are a must!
The food was better than I expected it to be -- I started with the shrimp and risotto and it was perfect -- the rice was tender and flavorful and the shrimp was well-seasoned. I had the salmon entree and it was also excellent -- very tender, nice serving. The asparagus was a bit tough (they were very large stalks). I would go back and would likely order the same thing.
The only reason this isnt all 5 stars was the slowness of service on Valentine's Day where the waitstaff seemed overwhelmed and the kitchen running behind. The amazing food made up for it when it came out at perfect temperature and taste (but then we were also starving, with an hour between ordering and being served). I put cozy and low noise but the tables are close together so you will be eavesdropping on the date beside you and vice versa. That kept us entertained actually, ha!
It was Valentine's Day, so the crowd and wait was anticipated, but was. or expecting that long of a wait for even drinks. No bread was offered while waiting 40 minutes for apps; main dishes weren't cooked correctly and served lukewarm
Service slow,food could be better
Great food. Can't leave without having the nutella pizza
Chose this restaurant because of the brick oven because we were traveling with a child. The pizzas were great and the rest of the menu is superb. Went back a second time to try additional meals.
go there a lot.. usually service great and can get in and out in an hour.. yesterday I was there w/ 1 other person.. we ordered right away and an hour later our food hadn't arrived
My colleagues rang in the Holiday Season at lunch. Our waiter was terrific - very friendly, good service. The food was delightful.
First time here. We ordered three appetizers to share which were more than satisfying for dinner, though the mussels, flavorful as they were, seemed a bit overcooked. We wished there were more vegetarian/pescatarian options as it seemed like many dishes included meat or bacon. It was comfortable, service was good, and we chose this restaurant for its convenience to the Avon Theatre.
The atmosphere was very lively. The staff was very attentive and provided wonderful service. The Branzino dish was beautifully presented and tasted delicious. The red sangria was perfectly made. Overall I had a wonderful time.
relaxed dining - great for a quick meal and drink in a casual setting
very disappointed in experience. Highly rated on Yelp and not sure why
We had dinner on a Saturday night with friends - the food was excellent, drinks well crafted, and service wonderful. The ambiance is more typical of a popular bar rather than a fine dining establishment and it got pretty loud which made conversation difficult.
Excellent service, terrific food, & pleasant atmosphere. Great place for a business lunch or an informal get together.
This was a good meal and I would recommend the restaurant with caveats. We reserved through Open Table and that was terrific. Parking right across the street $5 was fine. The noise level inside was too high for comfortable eating and conversation. There was a small room to the side which had 5-10 tables and was quiet. It was not attractive for dinner but it suited the purpose. There were 4 diners and perhaps due to a party upstairs in the main restaurant (source of the noise?) the service was noticeably slow. However, the waiter(s) apologized profusely and on balance we felt there was an attention to our concerns. The food was prepared with care and was very good-the desserts especially so. The only down side was the caesar salad which was disappointing. I would recommend this restaurant provided the dinnertime encompasses the above.
The food was very inconsistent, not sure we will be back.
We came for a quiet anniversary dinner and enjoyed ourselves immensely... Our server was such a nice individual... My wife left her purse on a chair, and the waiter ran down the street to find us... A really nice place!!!
What a surprise to find! I enjoyed the beet and almond salad with truffle cheese, and the lamb chop appetizers. My date had the bronzino. Very attentive service. Well priced. Agree with other reviewers that the TVs are not a welcome distraction. Sunday is half price wine night but we didn't know this until after the dinner 😣
I had eaten here once for Stamford restaurant week and I will not be returning because of the service. We were the only party in the restaurant at the time, about 8 people or so, maybe some people were at the bar? When we ordered our drinks the server brought out only half of the drinks, then after 15/20 minutes brought out the remaining. When we had some questions on the menu about what certain dishes contained he was unable to answer any of them and did not know what the ingredients were. Lastly, when we had finished a bottle of wine and requested another (we were still the only party in the restaurant) it took about 20 minutes to get. I would not complain if Bar Rosso was crazy busy and it was a super hectic night, but the fact that we received this kind of service on a slow night was disappointing.
Overall the food was great, but the service... not so much.
We shared specialty pizza and salad with wine and was fantastic. Service very friendly. Great before Avon movie!
Each time we come back service and food is worse and worse. This time the waitress brought us a small pizza instead of the large one we ordered. She apologized and brought us another small pizza . When the bill came she charged us for two small pizzas which were more expansive than one large. When I complained she told me that what we actually ate. Won't be going back anytime soon.
Nice dinner served by friendly wait staff. Limited menu items, but, what they did have was very well prepared and tasted great. Good atmosphere in a vibrant part of town.
they should have told us when we made reservation FOR OUTDOOR SEATING that the place was having a corporate cocktail so we were put at a bar table and it was way too noisy and not good for a nice quiet dinner with ambiance
Excellent Service and delicious meal
, knowledgeable, waitress. Loved the food but we had to leave because the noise the .
