“Nestled away from North Main Street is this hidden gem of Italian food. Their marinara sauce is delicious and their portions are just right. It can be a little noisy but it's a good dinner spot for the area ( even if it may take a minute to find parking don't let that deter you.)Parking: Not a lot of parking but worth the effort.“

“This was our first time here and it did not disappoint. We went on a Saturday and it was very busy - reservations are recommended on the weekend. Parking can be challenging. Bigger than it looks and the decor is very nice and upscale, though there are still TVs with games on and a lot of people ordered pizza, so a nice mix of casual as well. For a starter, the fried calamari was large, with two sauces, crispy and very good. I ordered zuppa di pesce fra diavolo from the specials, and it was flavorful but not overly hot, with generous portions of shrimp, clams, calamari, and scallops over linguini. The chicken piccata was just right as well, and they had a nice cocktail menu with some unique drinks. Forgot to take photos, so thumbs down to me, but thumbs up to Doma.“

Gnocchi

“Came down to watch the game and have some food. I love the fresh made gnocchi colognes, fantastic! My buddy had the gnocchi Della casa with added calamari, OUTSTANDING!!. Price has a bearing. But there is no room for discussion about the freshness or quality of food. For posting purposes, $20 is very inexpensive for the quality here. Totally recommend this place“

“Dead a**, might be the best pizza in CT. I've tried the best spots in New Haven, Stamford, Norwalk, and I'm not going to pretend that I've tried the majority of pizzerias in CT, but this is the best I've had in the two years I've lived here. Strongly recommend this spot to all my fellow displaced New Yorkers.“

“While visiting from Florida, we got UberEats from this restaurant and all our food was good but the pesto gnocchi will haunt my dreams forever. It was the best pasta dish I’ve ever had and am so sad I can’t get it again. I’ve been chasing that gnocchi dragon since, but everywhere else pales in comparison.“
