New Haven favorite Sally’s Apizza bursts onto Stamford’s food scene ‘like something out of a movie’

STAMFORD — Just before the hour, the line wrapped around the block. Louis Armstrong crooned from the speakers. Every so often, someone stepped out of the queue and peered at the neon red sign above the door, anxious because time moves more slowly when you’re excited.

Then, right at 3 p.m., general manager Jonathan Bara stepped out the door. “The moment has arrived,” he said to the lucky few standing nearby. Sally’s Apizza in Stamford was officially open.

After months of construction, design and waiting, the pristine glass doors parted, and people began to stream steadily in. Some eager eaters had already pulled on Sally’s Apizza T-shirts over their everyday clothes, a testament to the excitement from the crowd.
