Great service. The staff and manager worked well together to assure every detail was attended. The food was delicious and cooked well. Every though we were outside and the temperatures were dropping, the staff made constant checks on the heaters to keep everyone comfortable and cozy. Highly recommended for a night out with friends or family!!

Went to take advantage of restaurant week since I hadn’t been in awhile. A great reminder of how nice the ambiance and food are! Had the mussels and the pasta special - both excellent.

Went there for restaurant week. Price was higher than on website and it was cheaper to be a la carte than menu! Food was ok. Fish tasted more like cod than branzino...

I went there for restaurant week and it was so good. The fresh made pasta dishes were amazing. The fish special was sea bass and it was so fresh. The owner was so accommodating. We wanted to arrange our table so we can sit between the heaters and he allowed us to do that and also helped his staff with it. I just can’t believe I’ve never been there before.

Staff was able to accommodate a large party (10 people) and was very attentive once in the restaurant. Food was excellent while portions are smaller than most restaurants that serve pasta. Not small, just not the enormous portions one may be used to.

This was our first visit to Via Sforza. We ate in the "indoor/outdoor" section of the restaurant. This section has a warm ambiance. This is a good way to start a dinner.
They have an exceptional wait staff, efficient and courteous.
The menu has a nice mix of choices per each menu section.
Our appetizer and entrees very good; fresh ingredients and seasoned well.
The dessert was exceptional as was the cappuccini.
We recommend this restaurant.

Everything was perfect as always. The food is spectacular and the staff is friendly and helpful. I have a shellfish allergy and they always ensure that I have nothing to worry about and plenty of delicious options on their menu. I’ve been a fan since I moved to Connecticut in 1996 and of all the great restaurants in the area this is still my favorite.

The food was excellent but I was shocked by a $1.00/ entree split sharing. I could understand charging someone if they only had only one entree but to charge when there were two full meals and no notice of the charge is inappropriate and dare I say tacky.

Via Sforza
Responded on September 13, 2021

We apologize for any frustration our split-order policy caused you, Sheryl. We can assure you it is common practice, however we understand that not everybody is willing to pay the extra fee, which is why it is noted on our menu for full transparency. We truly appreciate your feedback.
