After years of success in historic SONO, this place is no longer open. The former owner will be opening a new spot in the neighborhood soon so keep your eyes on the site for update.

This place has become a South Norwalk institution as it's been there forever. The food is delicious...plain and simple. But as in almost all cases very good food is not cheap. Pasta Nostra is expensive but I feel you get what you pay for. It's...More

Here is what we've found: 1> The hours of operation are odd. 2> The owner is absolutely arrogant and rude. I has the elitist attitude and needs to be brought down a couple pegs. Sadly, he didn't know that I could buy his restaurant with...More

14 of us went for a milestone birthday of a beloved brother and everything was outstanding! I've never had linguine with white clam sauce like that. The bread was like none that I've ever had.

Longstanding restaurant on Washington Street in SoNo, that has withstood the test of time. No surprise - the restaurant is outstanding in all categories. The food is outstanding - we tried the vegetarian lasagna, which is prepared a little differently with a fine lasagna noodle,...More

Well, I can't say much that others before me haven't, but I do want to let the public know that while the food, for the most part was very good, and the service was very good, it was certainly NOT worth what we paid, especially...More

Despite hearing all the horror stories about how difficult the owner is, it is all worth it. Without a doubt the finest pasta in fairfield county. Even his gluten free pasta was amazing. If you are looking to be treated special, sit in the hip...More
