The Norwalk Health Department has announced its Seventh Annual Top Lighthouse Ratings Awards. This year, 189 of 412 eligible establishments received this distinction. Lighthouse ratings are based on Health Department inspections of establishments and their compliance with public health code safety and sanitary guidelines. Top Lighthouse Ratings are awarded to establishments that received consecutive excellent inspection grades in the previous year. To publicly recognize the commitment of these top-rated establishments to the public health code safety and sanitary guidelines, the Health Department presents them with certificates that they can display publicly.
Each year, the Health Department and the Mayor recognize one Award winner by presenting them with their certificate at a public ceremony. On April 15, Mayor Harry Rilling and Norwalk Director of Health Tim Callahan presented a Top Lighthouse Rating certificate at Pasquale’s Osteria on Main Street in Norwalk. Pasquale’s consistently receives excellent inspection grades. In fact, Pasquale’s is one of only 35 restaurants that have received a Top Lighthouse Rating Award every year since the ratings were launched in 2008.
