Morelli's Pizza Now Open in Stamford, CT

As of yesterday afternoon, the new Morelli's Pizza spot is open on Broad St in Stamford (in the old ice cream shop location next to McDonald's)

I haven't had a chance to stop in, but talked to someone today who enjoyed their slice.

Looks like it'll be a nice quick lunch option for downtown workers and teens alike...

Has anyone else had a chance to stop in yet?

  1. Maybe if you're looking for by the slice. But very pedestrian.

    Heard on the grapevine that Sabatiello "Sammy" Settembre is involved, former owner of the late and not lamented Sabatiello's on Bedford (btw, called cafe Morelli before he ran it into the ground.) If so, not a good signature of quality or excellence.

    Anyone know the scoop on ownership?

      Have to agree Lou, been to Morelli's a couple of times now and it is "very pedestrian" -- certainly not a place I'd make a point of visiting.

      The best thing it has going for it is the price. It's $3 for a very large slice, which is a reasonable serving size for lunch.

      Not sure if Sabatiello is involved. The only thing I'd heard was that Luigi Morelli opened up the pizza shop specifically because he wanted something smaller & simpler than the old Cafe.

        The owner is Mr. Morelli. He used to own Cafe Morelli's where the old Sabietello's on Bedford was located.
