Great Sunday Brunch

We wanted a place to meet in Westport for a family meal and we were not disappointed with our choice. the food was very good and a nice selection of home made dishes from scratch, not a massive food choice of canned and processed foods you can see at other Sunday Brunches. The atmosphere was that... read 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

About a year ago a friend from business suggested I try this restaurant while traveling in Connecticut. She said that she and her family eat there often, I can see why. I am an extremely hard food critic, not professionally, just picky, because I can really cook, and I love Italian food. This food was among the best I have... More

I ate mussels recently at this restaurant and I came down with vicious food poisoning for three days. I only ate a few because they tasted horrid but that was enough. The ambiance of the restaurant is so unappealing, my husband and I felt like running out. It was very bright and the air conditioning was on high on a... More
