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.

We recently went there to celebrate my husband's 65th birthday. Food and service were both outstanding. We have been there many times and every time is a memorable experience. Strongly recommend if you love good food and service.

Great meal once again. Mushroom ravioli and chicken Alfredo were good. Tiramisu was delicious as was the frozen gelato covered in chocolate

Took my wife for a dinner date after returning from a business trip. Started with the antipasto platter with fresh meats, cheeses, olives and grilled veggies. Everything was fresh and tasty. For dinner my wife had fettuccine Bolognese and I had veal braciole with rigatoni. My wife loved her entree, barely stopping from eating to say how good it was. My dish reminded me of the braciole my mother made when I was a kid. I ate everything on my plate. Service was excellent throughout the meal. We shared a fresh cannoli for dessert over cappuccino and espresso. It was scrumptious. We will definitely be back soon!

Food was good. Service was worse than bad. Balloon popping during the clean up of a birthday party was not pleasant.

Burrata appetizer was delicious. They didn’t have the entree I ordered and didn’t let me know until after appetizer and soup but thankfully we weren’t in a hurry. Affogato dessert was also delicious.

Everything was so wonderful! The food, the service, and all special orders were easily handled.
The ambiance was cute- "old worldish" but a mild musty smell was present.

Good meal. Menu has lost of choices. The meal I chose was ok I will return to try something different. The poached sea bass was not flavorful but I don't blame them since poached usually isn't unless brine is used.

Jamie was our server and she was very attentive and nice. All four in my party enjoyed our food! Only thing that was awkward was the amount of things on the table setting. Made it a little crowded.

This was our third time here in as many weeks. Each time the food was delicious. Service was very good. We also like that you can hear the music being played. Most restaurants are much too noisy.

I believe our original waitress got held up by another table, so we were sitting there a little bit longer than we normally would have liked. They finally sent another waitress over to cover our table and she was great! Food as always was amazing and after that hiccup our service was perfect!

Came for a dinner with my grandparents and had one of the best experiences in my life. Our waiter, Brandon, was the greatest waiter I’ve ever had. He engaged in excellent conversation and constantly checked on us. Our three course meal was excellent, and the cappuccino was delicious. Highly recommend this place and definitely request Brandon.

I have been to La Casa Pasta on more than one occasion and have always been pleased. This past spring I hosted a 25th Anniversay for my children and was so pleased with the service, food, and room that was provided. I highly recommend this restaurant for lunch, dinner or celebrating an occasion.

Was first sat at corner table, and asked to move to different table. Only waited few minutes. Service was great, food was really good - meatballs and sauce appetizer was amazing but $3 a meatball was a bit much. Ambience was perfect : very nice dinner out overall. We will be back

Reserved a table for an anniversary dinner. Quiet setting. Great authentic Italian food with plenty of menu choices. Great wine selection as well. We paid less than $100 for dinner for two, a bottle of wine and specially requested Tiramisu for dessert. The server was very professional and also wished us a happy anniversary when dessert was brought out. The dessert was elegantly plated and delicious!

Another outstanding meal! Wonderful pre dinner drink at the bar with the friendly and knowledgeable bartender. Food was lovely and we really appreciated being asked if we wanted some time between appetizers and dinner. Dessert was scrumptious!! We live about 40 minutes away and it is totally worth the drive. We'll be back... again and again.
