My top 5 restaurants of the week.

Colony Grill- A Stamford Classic Goes Franchise

Famous for its thin crust pizzas, this restaurant is an old one established way back in 1935 in its Irish neighborhood. They used to serve many food items earlier but now thin crust pizza is the only offering for the customers. You can have a wide variety of pizzas here from salad pizzas to breakfast pizzas. Run by a father son duo, this restaurant is the pride of Stanford.


If you are looking for new American cuisine on a budget, Olio is where you should head to.  You will love the ambiance and the quality of service. They serve their raw materials from local vendors and serve a unique mix of new and old American dishes. Customers love the freshness and the flavor of their recipes. In addition to lunch and dinner, Olio also has a brunch menu for those who get up late in the mornings. A winner fro Sprigdale!


This restaurant is a Stamford icon!  In 1947, the Pellicci family opened their restaurant in the “Heart of Stamford,” its West Side. By 1955, a loyal and expanding clientele made it necessary to enlarge their facilities and their menu, which featured a secret family recipe for baked chicken.  To this day Pellicci’s carries on their tradition of serving fresh and delicious, authentic Italian cuisine.  The service is excellent, the decor will transport you, and they will valet park your car with a smile.


Brasitas is the restaurant that is a perfect choice for those desirous of Spanish and Latin American dishes. Their margaritas, arepas con pollo, and sangria have become the talk of the town in a short span of time. The food is very flavorful here and it is also presented beautifully.  Under appreciated gem of a restaurant.

Casa Villa Restaurant

This restaurant is found on two locations in Stamford. If you are desirous of Mexican dishes, head straight to Casa Villa. In addition to serving delicious food for lunch and dinner, Casa Villa also provides take away service. Residents of Stamford love the nachos, tacos, and burritos served at Casa Villa.  Relaxed environment, authentic food and a killer guacamole!
