Quaint, traditional Italian restaurant

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... read 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 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.

When we want a nice, classy Italian meal but don't wish to spend $50/person, this is where we head. No matter what we've ordered here, it is always one of the best of that item we've had.

Foods great, service great, people great and price reasonable. They did not take reservations for a table of 6 people on a Friday night. But we arrived at 6:30 pm and had any table we wanted. Filled up as the evening dinner crowd arrived. Parking is no problem and the stone building is beautiful. I'll be back, the next time... More

It was my second time dining at Via Sforza; the first time was very good - no issues at all and the food was tasty. This time I was very disappointed. I ordered the lasagna and when it arrived, it was scorching hot. I couldn't take a bite for 10 minutes (and it was still pretty hot). On my second... More
