WESTPORT, Conn. – For 28 years in the restaurant business, Dino and Maria Sforza shared brunch with family and friends while they cleaned their restaurant. Now the Sforza family will offer a weekly brunch to the public at Via Sforza Trattoria, located at 243 Post Road West.
Reservations are strongly recommended.
Brunch served 11 a.m. thru 3 p.m.
Now the family “cleaning day” will consist of guests cleaning their plates without cleaning their wallets. Via Sforza offers competitive prices for brunch: $25.95 for adults and $13.95 for kids, complimentary mimosa, and unlimited coffee.The buffet-style menu will have brunch favorites, as well as owner and head chef Dino’s egg pizza with assorted meat toppings, frittatas, a carving station, the family’s homemade desserts, and much more.
“It will be a traditional brunch with Italian flair,” said Maria, co-owner and Dino’s wife, in the front seating area of their restaurant, surrounded by homemade décor and Italian music that reverberates off of the brick and stucco walls.“Customers are always making recommendations on things they want to see us do and we take them up on it. Brunch is one of them.” “To a lot of people, we are their neighborhood place,” he said. “We have a loyal following and we want to give them something outside the box.”
He is thinking as far out of the box as Bari, Italy, where he learned old-fashioned homemade recipes growing up. Dino and Maria say they think customers will be excited to see them do something new. “We live in Norwalk and Westport, so we know the area,” Maria said.
Via Sforza is continuously looking to improve the dining experience of their customers. They offer private parties, a catering menu, a recently updated take-out menu, 14 new specialty pizzas from their brick and conventional ovens, five daily specials, and an Opera night every other month. They are pleased to announce they received a permit to do outside dining, which is coming soon.
