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.
our server was Wanda who was great—competent, attentive, and friendly. we all enjoyed our food—lasagna, spaghetti & meatballs, branzino. very good. my first time in this restaurant and i will be back again!!
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.
Always a go to place for good food and good service!
Very friendly staff and tasty food.
Great food. Emily, our server, was the best. Had pleasant relaxing time. Would go again.
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.
One of our favorite places . Great food and service
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.
Great in all respects: menu variety, quality, taste, service, atmosphere, you name it.
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!
We both ordered the special of the night Mahi Mahi topped with crab imperial, and it was delicious.
The service was outstanding and the four of us had an excellent time. I would recommend the restaurant
to all parties.
Excellent as always
Used to go to restaurant. Food was more tasty and less costly.
We are long time patrons and the food and service are always consistent on the excellent side.
Best pasta I’ve had since I went to Italy. Everything tasted fresh and handmade with care. I highly recommend this place for whatever occasion be it a day you don’t feel like cooking to large celebrations. The quality of service is also impeccable and will not leave you wanting
For basic Italian dishes you will be pleased with selection.
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.
We had not been to La Casa pasta for quite a few years. It had not changed very much – still a very nice restaurant excellent service and food was still the same quality. Well worth the trip
It was my son’s graduation from UDel, on such a busy evening everything was fabulous.
What a beautiful end to a graduation day. The restaurant was busy with several celebrations. They did a great job. Great food, service, and drinks. Our party lived it. Also we have food allergies and we value the servers knowledge.
Was a special event was given a limited menu and choices. You come to dine you should be able to get what you would like to eat.
Food and service are always excellent. It’s our favorite restaurant for all occasions.
What a fabulous find. One step in La Casa Past and you forget you are in a shopping center location. Beautiful inside, extensive menu and tremendous service.
Disappointed with my dining experience. Limited menu due to graduation weekend. Wish I would’ve been informed prior to going. My pasta was dry and $10 more expensive than it was two weeks prior. The waitress didn’t even bring over the wine/liquor menu.
We’ve been coming to La Casa Pasta for over 25 years and the food is always utterly delicious! We’ve brought many friends and family members there over the years and they agree with us! Thank you for always keeping your standards high!
Excellent food and service. Tables for 4 are a little small.
Tasty dinner, professioal service and near private area for conversations. Enjoyable evening.
Met friends for dinner on a Friday evening. Very busy, hence a bit nosier, with graduation celebrations. Yet, service was prompt and food was excellent. We all had something different from the menu and we all were very satisfied. Adult beverages were also very good.
Reserved a table for Mother's Day. The place was busy, but our waiter took good care of us, keeping our glasses full and checking in on us. The food was very good. It was my first time in their establishment and I would definitely go there again.
This is my favorite restaurant. Friendly, and the food is so good. If you like Italian Food, it is the place to go.
Our server did not give us the appropriate attention needed for a party of 8, we saw that he spent more time with the party less than ours in another room. He did not check back to see how we liked the meal. We ordered salmon, Alfredo chicken, and pasta and vegetables. Our entrees arrived about 60 minutes after ordering. and some orders were not correct. The manager was polite and adjusted our meal accordingly.
I don't know if this was because it was Mother's day but that was not an experience I would recommend to a Friend.
1. The food was over priced based on what was given and the quality.
2. For an Italian Restaurant, the Sauce looks like it came from a can.
3. The service was marginal. The server forgot simple requests more than once while we were there. I had to remind her. On a couple occasion she put the food down on the table with force like it was burning her hands but it was not. The quality of the Veal was questionable.
I'm surprised the level from the last time I went there about over 10 years ago.
The food was good, not as good as it usually is. It was not really seasoned. The service was great but I could have gone elsewhere for Mother's Day.
Great food, great service, great atmosphere. Altogether, a great evening dining with friends.
Waiter was very helpful, polite, and attentive. Very good experience
