Loved it!

After our visit to New Britain, we wanted a sit down meal. One of our group had the pierogi dish. He apologized to Mom because he liked these pierogies better than hers. They were not "doughy" and you could actually taste the potato inside. The portion was more than enough. Mom and I shared... read more

After hearing how great the Polish Food in New Britian is, we decided to visit and taste for ourselves. We chose Staropolska based on the reviews here. Sadly, our experience does not line up with the reviews here. The service & ambiance were fine, no problems at all, the biggest issues we found were with the food (quality & taste)... More

I had the braised pork shank with roasted root vegetables,cucumber salad & a bowl of tripe soup. (little too much salt in the soup this visit) I enjoyed dinner & always look forward to my visits to New Britain to hold me over until my next yearly trip to Poland.

Went here for authentic Polish food. Got what we all felt, was prepared, possibly frozen at one point and reheated. Very pricey for what we got.

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
