Authentic, homemade Italian favorites in Wilmington's Little Italy



The Renaissance began in Italy. Since opening in 1988, Luigi Vitrone's Pastabilities has been cited as “The Little Jewel of Little Italy.” One can savor the authentic regional Italian cuisine, that the name sake chef has made famous and available for all. In 2016 Chef Luigi Vitrone re-decorated and re-formatted the restaurant and menu. He wished to duplicate his maternal grandparents’ Tuscan Villa in Monteriggioni, post WWII. We can't wait for you to experience the endless Pastabilities!
