My husband and I went there with another couple. The staff was so warm and attentive. The menu offered a wide selection with good prices and generous portions. We a lovely meal. The pasta dishes were excellent. It's clearly a family restaurant with a nice mellow vibe. We'll happily return.

Two of us including me had the veal parmesan , I would highly recommend. It also was one of our friends birthday and the server and owner came over with a cannoli with a... More

We shared a large cheese the other night and it was delicious. It was perfect after a long day of traveling. If we lived nearby I would definitely have it again!

Had a Roma pizza and the special pizza of arugula, figs, prosciutto, goat cheese and Pino Niur wine. The crust is light, crispy, and overall delicious. Add a little olive oil and it is so like the pizza in Sicily!! Friendly staff/owners, good service. Would have had tiaramisu but they were out :*(

Recently are here and got terribly sick! I had ordered the Caesar salad with salmon well done. Once the salad came the salmon was basically raw so I had asked the waiter if he could heat it up more. Well all I could say is he did. The salmon was basically burnt and completely black, took a few bites of... More

John the Baker is a Stamford institution 65 years and still going and still family owned. Its pizza is a local institution as well - I've lived 8miles away for nearly 30 years and local friends remover their first pizza from John's. It's good in a neighborhood of good pizza, i.e. Coal house puzza across the way at bull's head.... More

JTB has been a staple in the Bull's Head section of Stamford for decades. Good, solid Italian food in a relaxed, casual environment. Nothing fancy, just good food that will make you feel good. The whole family is there too. Get the "Mama's Special", chicken cutlet Panini with broccoli rabe and mozzarella (pronounced moots-a-rel by real Italians).....yummmmmy. Really good pizza,... More

It hurts me to write this review but today was th final straw.  I have been going to this place for years and have noticed that their slices have been getting more and more subpar lately.  Anyway today I ordered a fettuccine Alfredo with chicken which was subpar at best with its wet soggy Alfredo sauce and pasta and chicken...

Ordered a Cheese Pizza, Meatball Parm Sandwich and zeppoles. Everything was available for pick up within 15 minutes. Friendly people on the phone and counter. The food itself wasn't that great. The pizza was a little flavorless, the Meatball Parm Sandwich was dry (not enough sauce) and the zeppoles barely had any powdered sugar (see pics). Overall a decent but... More

All the food on their menu seem really good! They have many options so there is something for everyone. I've had the seafood soup. This one you can have on its own or over linguini. It is a big portion... So you might want to share. The tomato sauce is delicious. I've also had shrimps in tomato sauce over linguini.... More
