Best of the Old World
CRITICS, UPSTATE | La Casa Pasta
Four Seasons Shopping Center, Newark, 738-9935
Led by Giuseppe and Anna Martuscelli, 32-year-old La Casa Pasta is all about flavorful, homemade coastal Italian cuisine. (Giuseppe is a former fisherman and Navy cook.) The large menu is made up of delicious homemade pasta, fresh seafood and veal. The chef’s famous seafood-pasta explosion, paccheri alla Giuseppe, is famous, as is the daily “naked fish” selection. A fire in May might have set La Casa back a bit, but here’s looking forward to a glorious return.
CRITICS, DOWNSTATE | Roma Italian Ristorante
3 President Drive, Dover, 678-1041
Roma used to be Dover’s favorite pizza shop—until it got dressed up and became a full-fledged restaurant. For years now, it has offered the best Old World cuisine downstate. Why? Chef Joey Garramone Jr. uses his father Guiseppe’s recipes, which are about as deliciously old-school Italian as it gets. Classics include veal scallopini, chicken Parmigiana and veal saltimbocca.
