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.

Attractive restaurant. Service good but not great - didn't seem attentive of needs during meal. Great menu and specials. Decent wine list and full service bar. Roasted beets app, roasted artichoke heart app, veal parm and seafood risotto all excellent. Parking on site and at adjacent office. Great value. Rare to find special list without prices in excess of those... More

Always wanted to try this restaurant so went there for our Anniversary. The food and wine were very good and we sat at a table near the window. The wait staff was nice and making reservations was not a problem during the week.

Great food, great value, and the friendliest people to be found in Westport ! We have never tried anything on the menu that we didn't really like or love. My daughter gets penne vodka, and now we are all addicted to it. Fish (branzino, salmon), chicken (scarpariello) and pasta (cavatelli nonna) -- love them all. If I try hard, I... More

Via Sforza is a consistent excellent Italian restaurant. It never fails to deliver. The food is delectable. Portions are wonderfully on the larger side, not the NYC minuscule sizes. Our favorites are the pasta & fagioli, parpardelle il forno, and capellini alle vongole. High arched interior ceilings, with subdued lighting. Service was good. Desserts excellent. We are never disappointed. Definitely... More
