Pasta Via has been celebrating its 20th anniversary during August. We stopped by this week to discuss their 20 years of doing business along Fayette Street. We learned a bunch of history and wanted to share it with you:
- Betty Stanley, the owner, worked originally in her family’s dress and bridal business in Havertown
- Pasta Via was originally located at 517 Fayette Street, which is now Sevan the Salon. It moved after five years to 824 Fayette Street
- The original location was the family home of Betty’s mother, Elizabeth Cianci
- Pasta Via was originally was focused on being a market and caterer, similar to Carlino’s
- The original location had the first open kitchen in Conshohocken
- If you have ever walked by Sevan the Salon and noticed the patio along the side of the building, that was Pasta Via’s outdoor dining patio
- Once Pasta Via moved, it expanded its dine-in/take-out/delivery menu, but continues to have a booming corporate and social catering business
- They have a herb and vegetable garden behind the restaurant (Betty is pictured in the garden above)
- On a weekly basis Pasta Via employs about a dozen people, including Betty and her husband Jeff
- Pasta Via is known for its Penne Pasta Via and Chicken TriColor
