  Critics, upstate: More than 31 years has cemented Giuseppe and Anna Martuscelli’s La Casa Pasta as a legend of Italian cuisine in Delaware. The husband and wife’s passion for flavorful, homemade coastal Italian cuisine has seduced generations of diners. Who can resist marveling at marble floors and stone statues while eating the hearty sopressata, seafood cannelloni or the famous paccheri alla Giuseppe, which combines extra-wide rigatoni, monkfish, shrimp, cannelloni, Collina tomatoes and marinara sauce?
