This was our second visit to Villa Italia in as many months and as always the food was exceptional and the service excellent. The four cheese pasta is great but this time I had the scaloppini de mailable (pork). it was just as good as veal scaloppini which is hard to find .

This is our go to restaurant for an enjoyable always good meal at a reasonable price. The mushroom appetizer with cheese is great. My wife likes the pasta dishes and I love the veal dishes. Friends that I took there for fish raved about it too. A comfortable fun environment

Once again, rave reviews from people made me go there for a quick lunch, especially since I was looking forward to a carbonara. I requested one with tagliatele instead of spaghetti, and they said they only had the green variety. I said OK, then thought better of it and changed that to spaghettin while the waiter was still with us.... More

I have been to this restaurant many times here in Merida, Yucatan, Mexico. Great service, great atmosphere, absolutely delicious food, and not too pricey at all. Well worth the visit. Try the salads too. Easy to find, lots of parking. One of my favorite Italian restaurants in Merida of the 20 or so that exist.

A sweet restaurant. Plenty of seating options including a private dining room. A good place for any size group. Great waiters. Very attentive. Lots of choices on the menu. My puttanesca was excellent. I loved the spinach ravioli that my wife had. Salad was a bit small but tasty. The fish got rave reviews at our table. I would try... More

Let your self go with the recomendations, the "champiniones a los 4 quesos" or "la s verduras con queso de cabra" for starters are great, the pasta is very good olso, but you have to try the steaks and fishes, good wine and desserts
