STYLE

Romantic Italian tucked in the center of town, serving fresh-made dishes and coal-fired pizza with ingredients imported from Italy. 

THE SCOOP

Brothers Anthony and Vincent Esposito Jr. opened Via Sposito in 2019, bringing the flavors of their ancestral Ercolano—a town within the boundaries of metropolitan Naples—to New Jersey.  

THE MENU

Pastas and mozzarella are made in-house fresh daily. The mozzarella caprese is served with fresh tomato, basil and extra virgin olive oil. The antipasto rustico couples the mozz with artichoke hearts, roasted peppers, mushrooms, provolone and olives. Pastas include linguine alle vongole with fresh littleneck clams in a light white-wine sauce or richer red wine sauce. Among the coal-fired pizzas is the Biancaneve, topped with mozzarella, ricotta, sharp Pecorino Romano and extra virgin olive oil. For extra flavor and richness, add prosciutto for $4.

HEADS UP

When warm weather arrives, enjoy the shady patio (to which your leashed pup is also invited). The website offers $10 when you sign up for the rewards program.
