We chose Via Sforza for my mother's 75th birthday party. Wonderful food, wine and service, despite the fact that they had almost 40 guests to take care of. I would strongly recommend this restaurant for a traditional Italian gathering. The owners and staff are very warm people. Thanks! :)

Three of us dined at this restaurant, which has been around a long time -- first in Nearby Norwalk and now in Westport. I've had many tasty lunches but this was our first dinner there. We all loved the food and were particularly delighted with the low cost of the price-fixed dinner. Our out-of-town guest urged that we return when... More

Englishman and family slightly stranded in the area looking for dinner. We happened upon via sforZa entirely by accident. We thought it looked nice from the Ros and though we'd give it a go. Good call as Wayne might have said. The food was lovely. Fairly simple and classical Italian. Particular shouts out to my roasted artichoke starter although the... More

Highly recommended by friends, we finally got to try Via Sforza. Glad we did. The staff was very courteous and pleasant and let us take our time. The large menu was supplemented by nightly individual specials and by a three course $24.95 special menu which we all tried. We were all surprised by the generously sized portions of all three...

We had a very enjoyable dinner. The restaurant has both inside and outdoor seating. We decided to sit inside. The dining area is very pretty and comfortable too. They have a very nice menu- salads, appetizers, pasta, chicken, veal and fish dishes- served family and individual size. When we were seated the waiter gave us a basket of crusty bread... More

I had gone to this restaurant when it just opened a few years ago and the appetizer came out late and wasn't cooked properly, the service was spotty and all in all the place just wasn't a good experience. Fast forward, I now live in Westport and went back. I sat outside under the grape vine covered veranda for lunch... More

While on a trip up the East Coast recently we left route 95 and found Via Sforza. It was incredible! The restaurant has the ambience of an old european restaurant. The Italian food was absolutely delicious. The waitstaff was totally outstanding. We were delighted that we ventured off Rte. 95 for this jewel!

Four of us went to enjoy music and dinner. When the cannelloni came with what the kitchen identified as a long strand from a dish towel baked into it, the waiter was not surprised, and his manager was not particularly apologetic.

This is one of our favorite dining spots. Delicious Italian food - and one of the few places that offers cannelloni, It's family-friendly yet perfect for small groups specializing special occasions. Problem is: no reservations accepted. So you take your chances on getting a coveted table outside. My advice is to go early if al fresco dining is your pleasure.

Thank Susan S G
