Tasty Tuesday: La Fortuna

Posted: Updated:

A new Italian restaurant hopes to bring a taste of traditional pasta to Stratford.

La Fortuna opened its doors in late November but this story starts more than a decade ago, in Rome.

Aleks Gjeka says that's when his wife Phyllis fell in love with pasta.

Now, as the owner of La Fortuna, she's sharing her passion with Fairfield County diners.

Gjeka says everything is made from scratch and that the business is family owned.
