If the location is as great as touted in the article - then how come the restaurant folded?

I can't imagine how a mere restaurant can make enough money to cover a $100,000 triple net lease. The menu would be so expensive such a restaurant would go out of business. QED.

Sammie opened his little pizza place in Riverside on the Post Road, a few doors up from St Catherine's church next to the chinese food venue.

I saw Sammie in Stop-n-Shop/Peoples Bank on West Main St in Stamford yesterday afternoon. He doesnt seem to have a care in the world.

"Is that you Sammy shilling for your new place? Just remember no matter how good the food is nobody wants to be bothered by a blabbering blowhard while they're ordering food under the guise of "just doing my job." A dim witted ape like you should take the mortadella out of your 4ss, stick it in your mouth and STFU. IDIOTA!!!"
I can't help but laugh at this highly ignorant comment. Clearly this being doesn't know Sammy, or the situation he is in. I've been a loyal customer since he came to Connecticut and Sammy has done nothing but try and make a living selling the best Italian food in the county. Everyone needs to stop spreading false rumors about him and let him keep doing what he does. He's had some run ins with crooked landlords who have treated him unfairly making him move out without even letting him honor his holiday parties. Don't go pointing the figure when you don't know the truth. Im anxiously awaiting the opening of a new establishment so that my family and I can once again enjoy an evening out at a family style restaurant we can rely on and enjoy!

I agree. After watching him (for the first time tonight-rerun), I am not surprised to see the news on this guy's failure. He blames others for making himself look bad while he is acting like a total jack-___! The only person he has to blame is himself. Too bad, so sad... for your family. They must really be proud to have you represent them. Grow up.

Sammy should have sold it. After. Ramsey came in. His head is too big causing failure

Sammy was a ripoff in Cos Cobb. He is famous for saying "Try this and putting it on your plate" (table) Then it shows up on your bill.
Pretends to be a Big GUMBA.(NOT) Be sure to watch Ramseys Kitchen Nightmares for Sabatiello's (Not his real name)
