SACRAMENTO – Assemblymember Cheryl R. Brown (D-San Bernardino) has selected La Pasta Italia as the 47th District’s Small Business of the Year. La Pasta Italia, located in Grand Terrace, is owned and operated by the current Grand Terrace mayor, Walt Stanckiewitz, and his wife, Monique Stanckiewitz.
“I’m so excited to acknowledge and select La Pasta Italia as my Small Business of the Year. La Pasta Italia has been providing quality food to the restaurant industry and the community for several years now. They have a statewide reach and an excellent reputation in my district. They’ve come so far and I’m so proud of them,” said Assemblymember Brown.
Prior to the establishment of their restaurant, the Stanckiewitzes developed a reputation for providing a variety of fine pasta products to upscale restaurants throughout the Inland Empire including Mario’s Place, New York Grill, Ciao Bella, Café Allegro, Lake Arrowhead Resort, and the iconic Mission Inn.
After 13 years of providing quality service to area restaurants, the Stanckiewitzes established La Pasta Italia, on Barton Road, in the city of Grand Terrace in June 2003. In keeping with Walt’s Italian roots, the Stanckiewitzes prepare each dish with love.
In honor of his mother, Walt’s signature sandwich is the Da Riccio. Inspired from her Naples background, the ingredients include: prosciutto, sopressata, parmesan cheese, red onion, pepperoncini, olive oil, and balsamic vinegar on an Italian roll.
The Stanckiewitzes will be honored at a ceremony in Sacramento on Monday, June 10.
Assemblymember Cheryl R. Brown represents the 47th Assembly District, which includes Colton, Fontana, Grand Terrace, Rialto, the southwest parts of San Bernardino, and the unincorporated communities of Bloomington and Muscoy.
