Pasta Vita

Pasta Vita began in 1996 as a wholesale pasta company in Old Saybrook, Connecticut.  Co-founded by Rich Cersosimo, a retired IBM marketing manager, and Lou Castanho, a distinguished chef and graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, Pasta Vita is Connecticut’s leading Gourmet-to-Go retail business.

In April 2015, Mohegan Holding Company entered into a multi-unit agreement with Pasta Vita to open franchise locations throughout New England. In August of the same year, the first franchise location opened inside Mohegan Sun with several more in development. The Mohegan Sun location features over 100 of Pasta Vita’s freshly prepared entrees, salads, soups, sauces, breads, vegetarian options, desserts and their famous specialty-striped ravioli.  

Mohegan Holding Company currently co-owns and operates Pasta Vita in:
  • Mohegan Sun
