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.

Great service and delicious food.
Excellent experience! Service was extremely timely and we never felt rushed. Food is consistently delicious.
Great place for a delicious dinner and good conversation without the music being too loud... just nice background music
I just love walking into this beautiful restaurant! I always get the blackened salmon, while my husband loves every Italian dish on the menu! We've brought many friends with us to La Casa Pasta over the past years. The atmosphere is just wonderful and the food is great!
Typically have a great experience but this time the server and staff were rude. Service extreamly slow. Food was great.
We really enjoyed our meal and it was a very relaxing atmosphere. The waitress was great!
We were a few minutes late for our reservation (senior dog issues) but arrived and were seated promptly. Jamie was our server and made the stress of our tardiness disappear! She efficiently told us about the specials and recommendations. Each of our courses came out hot and appropriately spaced out. The portions are good sized so we both ended up taking half of our meals home and ordered dessert to go! We'll definitely return
If you like Italian food, this is the place to go. The pasta was fresh, the bread was perfect! Clams Casino are a must if you like that. We can't wait to go back! Delicious food, friendly staff, quick service. We drove 45 minutes...it was worth the drive.
Exceptional as always. Food is always fresh and top quality. Service was impeccable.
Fabulous food and service!! Looking forward to going back soon!
Absolutely amazing food and amazing service. The food is amazing. Great portion size and pairings. Our waitress Chris was knowledgeable and amazing.
Been there a few times . Love the food
Service and food were outstanding as usual. Thank you for a wonderful New Years Eve! We will be back!
Our favorite local place. Food is so good. Never disappoints.
Food was fantastic and Casey our bartender was very attentive and made some great cocktails. The owner opening and presenting our bottle wine was a nice touch. Certainly will be back.
One of the best Italian restaurants in New Castle county. Food was excellent however extremely disappointed that they do not (according to our server) serve anchovies on their Caesar salad. Otherwise food and service were great!
Very clean. Staff was helpful and courteous. Food was delicious but ridiculously small portions for the price. No soup or salad is included with entree, everything is extra. You could tell the restaurant is doing their best to accommodate the pandemic.
Noise level was quite high, would not recommend if you’re looking for a quiet dinner.
Terrific meal & service.
Amazing service and cuisine! Celebrating with some friends and we all raved about the food.
The food and staff are always great!
Excellent food and service.
Hands down the Santa Maria pasta was the best I have ever had. It was homemade. Definitely one of the best Italian restaurants around!!
The food and service were great. Wonderful experience
I haven’t been here in at least a decade. The food was amazing! The service from Camille was outstanding! She is a wonderful server & we would come back specifically for her. The ambience was perfect as well.
La Casa Pasta never disappoints, amazing food, service and atmosphere!
Always an excellent meal...very consistent with courteous and respectful staff!
As always La Casa Pasta delivers excellent food and excellent service. In today’s difficult times tables were very spread apart and service was impeccable. We will never hesitate to go back.
Great restaurant. Great food. Different menu, same amazing people.
Had a great time, couldn't ask for anything better.
I took my wife, daughter, son and his girlfriend and sister in law for my wife’s birthday, everything from getting seated through dessert was excellent, would recommend to anyone, thanks to the entire staff for a great evening!!!
Food was really good, staff was super nice, would definitely go back!
Food always excellent. Choices diversified and daily choices make up a never ending way to enjoy classic Italian cuisine.
Always like going to La Casa Pasta before Covid 19 & still do. Only have ate inside 2 times so far but they do a great job spacing out everyone & the food is still delicious like always. Our Waiter Alex we've had the 2 times this year is great !
Service was excellent and prompt. Food was delicious!
Let’s start with Jaime. She was attentive and knew her menu. We treated our friends to dinner because Covid has kept us apart. Their veal and pasta dishes were so good, only one had leftovers to bring home. The strappy guys licked their plates clean. The Burrata chess was a huge hit as well as the sautéed calamari. Bread basket with olive oil to dip. Hungry yet? After dinner coffee. One with Baileys , the other with amaretto. We will def be back!!!!
Great restaurant and service. Had the calamari, gnocchi, and lobster ravioli. I would definitely recommend
Great experience. Really good food here and service was wonderful. Very clean and has a very nice atmosphere. This was our first time here and we are so glad that we discovered this amazing gem of a restaurant. We will be back.
We are moving out of the area but made sure to make another stop at La Casa Pasta. Even in these difficult times, they did not disappoint. The prices have gone up but I fully understand. I want them to make it!
We come here a lot and love the food and the environment. Our waiter, Brandon, was awesome and was very attentive, always made sure we had bread, drinks, extra napkins, etc. we have been coming here for years and will continue to do so!!!!
