Emme, anytime

Emme of Capri, 277 Summer Street, 353-0626, must be a secret that only the most savy stamford restaurant goers must know about. Wanna know how I know this? Well, cause that's where I dined this week at lunchtime. It's a small space: Only a handful of tables, and cozy. Decor was fitting and set the "Italian" mood. A painted mural that spanned the whole wall and colorful Italian tiles depicting Capri where all around. It wasn't hard to find the perfect spot, which was a window next to the sidewalk . Perfect for people watching during the afternoon lunch hustle-bustle. Not a crowded place. Benefit being, that it was such a pleasure to be able to have nice conversation with the person I was sitting with, instead of having to make-believe I could hear him. (you know, it gets annoying after the tenth time I have to say "What did you say, I can't hear you...." during an hour long lunch) We had a nice chat with the owner, Massimo, with his sultry authentic Italian accent, who I could listen, with no problem, to whatever he would share. He was busy checking the "wine" pages for some future selections. Not knowing much about wine, the conversation was short, but I wished him luck and was pretty sure he didn't need it to pick out the perfect wines for the menu. Needless to say, my lunch was served to perfection: Tasty linguine and clams from New Zeeland.(sic). My friend had the freshest fish recommended, which I can't remember the name right now, but I know it was the first entree on the menu. As we left Massimo to head back to the office, we quietly validated our choice to one another as being right on mark for a nice, quiet restaurant close to the office, but best of all, excellent Italian fare.

Sounds romantic. Small intimate restaurants are getting harder to find with all the chains popping up everywhere.
