Just a quick update note on this place. I've been going here about once a year or so for the past seven years. It seems to get decent (though mixed) reviews on this board, but I've always been happy with my meals. I usually get the homemade pasta with duck ragu (generally wide papardelli-like noodles). It's the perfect dish for a cold night.
I went again the other night. We didn't have a reservation, and it was Saturday night around 7:30, but still were seated within about 20 minutes. We were going to a dessert party afterwards so I just ordered an entree and my wife ordered pasta and a salad. No other antipastas or appetizers. But I just had to say that my meal - pan roasted chicken with sausage - was great. In fact, it was the first time in a few months that I haven't left a sit-down restaurant disappointed. The chicken was cut into big pieces, and bone in (a big plus). It was perfectly cooked - very, very moist and flavorful. The sausage came cut into 1-inch chunks with a nicely seared char to the outside. The chicken and sausage came with braised greens that were also excellent. My meal was wonderful.
My wife's meal was good, if unremarkable. I can't remember exactly what it was... a pasta with a fresh tomato sauce, cheese and something else. Frankly, I didn't really pay any attention because mine was so much more interesting.
The place can get a little noisy inside when it's really busy, but it's got a nice interior. The service is fine (for me... I'm not picky). It's not as expensive as some places in Stamford, but still not cheap. My entree was $25 and my wife's was $18 (I think).
