This guy goes on national TV, acts like a total jackass, and expects people to believe he didn't vandalise his own place? Not only does Sammy have no class, he's pretty spiteful, too.

Something doesn't quite pass the sniff test here. They supposedly found the damage on December 4th and are now bring charges? I'm not fan of the guy. Had a few touch points with him over the years. He is his biggest fan. I'm surprised nobody has blamed the Albanaian's yet.

He stole/kept deposits for parties that winter after folding up shop and not telling anyone. This guy deserves whatever they can throw at him.

Have the landlords received any interest from prospective tenants regarding taking over the space? Great spot and a shame for it to be empty.

His place in Cos Cob was gross, while in Stamford he was obnoxious to his customers all the time..just not when he was on that TV show, and his new pizza place in Riverside lasted oh about 6 months...heard he got kicked out for not paying his rent...This man is pure trash he should just throw in the towel!

Always blame it on the homeless men..there are plenty of vacant businesses around Stamford and you mean to tell me they chose his location to vandalize..doubt it. Then again, maybe he was rude to them :)

On a personal note, I went on a pity date with him in the beginning of the year - he's a sleazeball who thought dinner at a nice restaurant entitled him to more. Clearly he performs similarly in both his personal and professional dealings.
