The restaurant has been totally transformed, sporting a dramatic two story high central dining area surrounded overhead on two sides buy a dining mezzanine overlooking the main dining area and on a third by a private dining room softened behind shaded glass. A dramatic bar of stainless steel set against a backdrop of exposed stone runs the length of the room and leads the eye to the real focus of the place: the imposing steel surround of the woodburning beehive oven. Rustic wood ceilings and exposed stone walls set against high energy glass and steel combine the old and new at Bar Rosso, setting the tone, reflecting the soul of the restaurant. Featuring glorious Italian cheeses and charcuterie, small plate specialties, mix and match bites off a large antipasto menu, wood oven thin crust pizza, homemade pasta and Italian inspired entrees, Bar Rosso is intended as a tour of the Italian culinary scene complemented by a full Italian wine list and cocktails inspired by the authenticity.

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.

Lobster shrimp ravioli not so great! My friend said the wild salmon was excellent -- I should've ordered the pizza 😢

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.

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.
