Celebrate Via Sforza’s 20th in Style! Westport, CT

18 Jan

From Via Sforza

Who doesn’t love some Italian food?  God knows we have plenty of choices here in CT, but if we’re looking for really good food that warms the heart, there aren’t as many.  Usually, you find a restaurant that is good at one particular thing such as their pastas, their meats, or their antipasti.  But, there are some rare breeds such as Madonia, Columbus Park Trattoria, and Via Sforza Trattoria that excel no matter the menu item. 

From Via Sforza

If you’ve never had the pleasure of trying out Via Sforza, now’s a great time.  They are celebrating their 20th year in business this year.  Well, where’s the party?  Come on, ya know Italians do it right!   First off, listen to an Italian guitarist, plucking at your heart strings, while you wine and dine on February 2 + 23.  Also, there will be a special Valentine’s Day menu and they are even taking reservations for Opera Night on February 6.  Don’t forget they have Sunday brunch too, paesan.  Just $19.95 for adults, $9.95 for kids.

From Via Sforza

So, why Via Sforza?  We’ve eaten there twice and both times were amazing.  The main reason we came back was due to Kristien’s addiction to Bucatini alla Amatricciana.  See, this is where Kristien discovered her second great love–I’m the first, btw.  Thick round ropes of pasta smothered in a tomato sauce with bits of pancetta all over.  Yeah.  Damn good.  Although this is off the menu now, there are plenty of great pasta dishes, salads, pizzas, and more to choose from.  Some of the recipes come from Sforza family recipes or have evolved from Dino Sforza (co-owner) and Executive Chef Chris Malagise working together over the years.  You can taste the love.  So,when we head back, this will force us to branch out and try new dishes. ;)

Just note that Via Sforza gets pretty packed because it’s no secret how good the food is.  The Valentine’s Day dinner and the music nights are first come, first serve.  You can make reservations for Opera Night and their brunches, though.

Ciao, Omnomivori!

    One of my most favorite restaurants…actually, could be my most favorite!

    Great service, exquisite food and the best dining atmosphere…always great to see reviews that honestly match what I’ve experienced — and that reminds me, time to book in for Feb 6th Opera Night!!! Bravo.
