Beautiful ambience!

Lovely, small and intimate dining area. Also outside seating. Food was very good and the service was excellent. Had an enjoyable evening with friends. The food was very well prepared. Would definitely go there again.

This restaurant is a pretty stone building with a great atmosphere. The staff is very attentive. Food was delicious and arrived very quickly.

I had dinner with my husband and 2 children (11 and 8) on a Saturday night. It was busy, but they were very accommodating and gave us a nice table without a reservation. The wait staff was very nice and attentive. The kitchen was happy to make a dish for my husband that was not on the menu (spaghetti puttanesca)... More

We haven't been there for some time and just dropped in. Maria greeted us like long lost relatives. We had the mussels appetizer and they were delightful. The entrees were equally good. And service by Carlos was excellent. It was not as crowded as we've experienced in the past, so outside dining service was good. A very nice evening meal.

On our first visit to Via Sforza Trattoria, my husband and I were skeptical. Outdoor dining next to the parking lot? Moments later, we were swept away by the fantastic service, then the delicious food. We even loved the arbor that was next to the parking lot, but didn't feel like it, once inside. We had linguine with seafood, salads,... More

We enjoyed a birthday celebration as a result of a good friend that celebrates all her family occasions here. The food was delicious, the portions were huge and we were all very satisfied with our orders. The fried calamari was prepared perfectly and the beans and escarole appetizer came with shrimp which really topped it off just right. The service... More

We had our daughters confirmation reception at Via Sforza. There Sunday brunch has a great verity, is very tasty and is well priced. The service is personal and friendly. We couldn't have been happier. I would highly recommend Via Sforza

Have been going to Via Sforza for approximately 20 years. We used to go much more often in their previous location in Norwalk. When they moved to Westport they raised their prices, and so eating there became a treat we indulged in less often. Not that Via Sforza is not worth it, I think their food and service are very...

We dined with family friends- this is not an ideal date night place- the seating is close and lighting bright. However, I would recommend for a group and family- the placed is packed so get there early to be seated. The service is fabulous and the food is delicious. We started with Mozz and tomatoes salad and artichokes- all good-... More

This was a Christmas luncheon for 20. For some reason, it took a while to start service (maybe they were confused about the start time or thought everybody just wanted to talk even though we asked that they start service). But once service started everything was terrific. The food was excellent and service was very attentive.
