Home Cooking in "Little Poland!"

Excellent Polish food in New Britain's "Little Poland" neighborhood. Service is prompt and food is prepared fresh. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a simple, modest atmosphere but gourmet Polish food. Reasonably priced food and drinks.

Staropolska outshines the other 2 Polish restaurants in a 5 mile radius. We've eaten at all 3 restaurants and Staropolska is our new favorite! We first visited a more humble ["diner style"] Polish restaurant nearby, and felt the food was bland. Staropolska's food is flavorful! I had the Polish platter and it was worth the price: a wonderful blend of... More

Food was good and plenty. Barley soup was delicious. My wife had the Polish Platter and took half of it home as she could not eat it all. I had the Pork Cutlet ala Gdansk. It was stuffed with mushrooms and great gravy. Would not hesitate to dine here in the future.

Growing up eating authentic Polish food, I love Staropolska for its authentic Polish food! Soups are amazing, and everything i have had there is tasty, spiced perfectly and served by friendly staff. The establishment is clean, easy parking, and right in the middle of Little Poland. Their alcoholic beverage selection is huge and their Polish beer is very good. Nothing... More

Fantastic food if you can get in. Limited seating and slightly harried service but worth the wait for real food.

Genuine, homemade, Polski żywwność. Doskonałe domowe jedzenie. Portions were just the right size (large for my Polish appetite!) and cost was reasonable too. Even though was bloodline is 100% Polish, I've never been to Polska (3rd generation Pole in American - Polak w Ameryce), but what I understand from pictures and those from Polska, the decor and atmosphere is genuine...

What a fun Polish version of a diner. The place is smallish and packed. The quality of the polish food [and Polish beer and other drinks] and the modest prices explain why. The fast, friendly, competent service just makes it all a real treat. The Pierogi Special consists of a cup of soup [definitely homemade] and 8 [yes, really!] pierogis.... More

If the NY Times said it was "very good", who's the argue. Polish "comfort food" in a warm, neighborhood restaurant with great service. The hot borscht was great. So too the perogie and potatoe pancakes.
