As you open the doors to La Casa Pasta, your senses will be stimulated with the aromas of freshly-pressed pasta, delicately made sauces and warm, baked breads fill the air. Critics will agree that the tastes are even more satisfying.

Chef and Owner Giuseppe Martuscelli's roots and knowledge of fine foods and wines originated in the town of Santa Maria Di Castellabate near Salerno, Italy. Giuseppe came to America with the Italian Navy in 1967 and returned to stay in 1973, settling in Newark, Delaware to open La Casa Pasta in 1978.
Since then, he has made it his goal to serve only the most authentic Northern and Southern Italian foods. Each year, he travels back to his homeland and beyond to learn new recipes and import ingredients not to be found in the states.

    The food at La Casa Pasta is very good, we dine there often and have never been disappointed with the quality of the food. Sometimes the restaurant is under staffed and we experience long waits between courses and for our check at the end of the meal. The air conditioning system was on FULL BLAST on a recent evening, making the long dining session uncomfortable. Bring a sweater in summer!

    Our reserved table was not set up upon our arrival. Waited about 10 minutes to be seated, even though the restaurant was not crowded.I suspect they were short-staffed, even though it was a Saturday evening. As usual, good service and good food.

    Service, bread, salad, starter and desert were great. Entree, Veal Saltimbocca, was chewy, tough, not "melt in your mouth" as described on the menu. I will probably never return. I prepare it a home much better.

    It was a very good meal but it was way too cold in the restaurant. You shouldn’t need a coat on inside when it’s 88 degrees outside.

    We decided to go out to dinner with some family who live out of state. They loved the food and everything about the restaurant. We were slightly disappointed by the limited menu, but completely understood due to graduation weekend. We will definitely be back.

    We have been enjoying La Casa Pasta for over 30 years. Within the past couple of years, 2 of the dishes I regularly ordered were removed from the menu. We visited on an evening when there was a limited menu. The food was good, but I requested Penne Santa Maria instead of the Fusili Santa Maria and they could not accommodate that. Apparently, when there is a limited menu, there are no substitutions. I understand, but in an Italian restaurant, it's difficult to understand why they could not switch out a type of pasta. I have to add that the house salad and dressing are always amazing.

    La Casa Pasta was amazing! It was my daughter’s graduation day and they made it extra special. The food was absolutely delicious but it is the people that made the difference. We had a long 2 days navigating Graduation ceremonies and weather-when we were ready to celebrate-they took care of us and made the day complete. Thank you for your excellent care to a tired and happy family!

    The bread was delicious. The calamari lovely. I was surprised that the bolognaise was NOT ..it was cream sauce with penne and chopped meat..not flavored. The waitress did not tell us any specials. I heard a different waitress tell the table next to us THE SPECIALS, I would have tried 1 of them. It was good enough but not special liked I expected it to be. 1 and done.

    It was fairly empty when we dined here, the service was super slow despite there being lots of servers on the floor and few diners, they were setting up for a larger party for the next day and moving all sort of furniture, stacks of chairs, directly through the part of the dining room where people were eating [could've have been done much more discreetly without a single extra step]. Food was ok when it finally arrived. Nothing was unpleasant, but it wouldn't be a place to which I'd return. Honestly it felt like everyone was particularly inexperienced - maybe it was a bad night, not sure why it would be though!

    We enjoy lunch at LaCasa Pasta a couple of times a year. It is a good half-way point for us from Philadelphia suburbs and our friend outside of Baltimore. We always get a private table in a quiet alcove where we enjoy good food and friendly service.

    We dined here on a Sunday evening (5pm reservation). Hostess seated us promptly and we were greeted by a very friendly server who was quick to get bread to the table, and put in our starters. We got the Pasta Fagioli, Caesar salad, and a Margherita pizza to start. Everything arrived quickly and were delicious! Pizza wasn’t a brick oven pizza or anything, but still decent. For entrees, we got Vitello Saltimbocca and cannelloni di mare. Veal was great though the Marsala wine was strong (not reduced enough) and the cannelloni was fresh, delicious, the filling full of flavor! It was basically crab cakes in log form inside fresh pasta caves. For dessert, we got the Exotic Bomba and the Molten Chocolate Cake. Server was amazing with helping us pick items off the menu knowing my partner and I love a good dining experience as foodies!! Would definitely come back and request the same server (Kai) because she made it such a fun night!!!

    Menu has been significantly reduced. Some old favorites are no longer available. Naked fish Sicilian is still first rate . Silly little upcharges like extra for anchovies on Caesar salad make you feel nickel and dimed , but overall a reliably good meal .
