    Amazing food. Everything here is delicious. Danilo and Rosanna prepare and offer the most amazing food. Focus is on authenticity and quality with most of their ingredients imported directly from Italy. They are wonderful people too. Go here asap.

    A great spot in Downtown Milford with a friendly and helpful staff. This was my second visit, and for each I found the music too loud for such a small place.

    Their menu is limited for entrees but what we ordered was delicious. We had Tuna (TARTARE DI TONNO) which was very flavorful, we also had a Margarita pizza which was very close to pizza we had in Naples Italy. Very good. For entrees I had Lasagna Al Pesto and my husband had the Gnocchi both were served in a small crock you would normally get French Onion Soup in. Both were delicious. We had a Tito's martini which were on the smaller side (charged as $9.00 for Tito's and $3.00 for martini??). All in all, we would go back.

    Lovely addition to the downtown Milford restaurant scene. Good menu choices and delicious food. However, my friend and I found the music too loud for such a small restaurant and asked the staff if the volume could be lowered. They willingly accommodated our request.

    Waitress was lovely and attentive. Nice job explaining drink and food options. Food was very good. Price was expensive. I know costs are high but the cod for $25 should have come with a little pasta or veggie. I would definitely come back to try other things. The octopus was great.

    We tried 4 of the pizza selections and they were all awesome and authentic Napoli style pizza. The entrées and appetizers were also delicious and very authentic. Felt like I was back in Campania. For the more traditional Italian American palates suggest starting with the pizza and exploring the appetizers.

    This restaurant is a high end pizza restaurant. Before I knew that, I ordered cod. That’s all I got, no vegetables, rice or mashed potatoes. The cod was tasty but for $25 I think I should get a side with it. There were only 6 entrees, 3 where a pasta dish, and many more choices for pizza. I would not return to this restaurant.

    We were looking for a special dining experience for Anniversary. Portions small and expensive. Only four or five Entrees on menu and they were out of my husband's first choice. Second choice a veggie lasagna was heavy,bland & disagreed with my husband. My cod in a tomato sauce was good, but small and came with no vegetables, potatoes or salad. No bread before the meal was offered. The the pizza being served to others looked good.

    My husband and I had an enjoyable date night dinner at Stega in mid-February. We arrived at the time of our reservation and were seated immediately. The room is open and inviting and lighting was dim but appropriate. We were informed that the pizzaiola was not there so only 1/2 of the menu was available - a real bummer! We really enjoyed our appetizers, the misto platter and the pane cotto. Both were beautifully presented and tasted great! Our entrees, the gnocchi and cannelloni, were decent. Actually, the cannelloni was delicious and an interestingly light flavor profile. The gnocchi were a bit heavy, but I know better than to order gnocchi out when I can make them at home. Our waiter was delightful and made the experience for us. We'll be back, for another app and to try the pizza for sure! A great addition to downtown Milford.
