restaurants in Springdale section of Stamford

I am going to meet a friend next week for lunch. Any suggestions for Springdale or Glenbrook (not a diner). thanks

  1. i haven't been myself, but have heard very good things from many people about Olio (in the spot that used to be Bella Luna). Seems a little pricey, but more of a downtown-esque menu. hope this helps!

    1. I've been to Olio twice and have loved it each time. bbqlover is right, though, it is on the $$$ side. But it's probably the best restaurant in Springdale.

      For something a little more economical, I'm a big fan of Hope Pizza. Greek pizza place, but they have plenty of other choices there. Try the gorgonzola salad with souvlaki chicken added!

      Across from Hope Pizza is Enzo's, a quiet Italian deli that you don't hear much about, but they make great sandwiches.

      Another place to try is Trips. I'm probably in the minority to recommend it, most people find it very average, but I've never had a bad meal there. Their Shrimp Maren is my standard go to dish.

        +1 for Olio. Have never had lunch there, but I've had dinner more than a dozen times. Always very good, sometimes outstanding.
