In a strip mall you occasionally find a really good dining spot. This is the case with Villa Roma. We all enjoyed our meals, from the salad to the dessert! Good choice of Italian dishes, which are our favorite. Attentive service and nice place to take the family.

Outstanding selection from both cuisines, wonderful service, great atmosphere and music 4 times a week. It is a shopworn strip mall center but do not let that fool you. Inside the decor if first class, romantic and functional. We went there for lunch 2 days in a row, ordered completely different items and all were excellent. Had the antipasto, the... More

Just across from our Hotel was Villa Roma. From the moment we sat down it was like being with old friends. The staff was great, the food was excellent. The only thing wrong was that we only got to eat here the one time.

Make the drive up the 5 Freeway from Dana Point. The is the real deal, we will be back soon, the pizza's... More

The deli has the sort of atmosphere you find in Argentina, very friendly staff, delicious and authentic food. Owner is often in either the deli or the adjacent restaurant, he is a friendly guy who stops to check in on the customers. Lots of TV's for watching futbol/soccer. Recommend the milanesa with the garlic and parsley french fries, yum! The... More

I know they call themselves another style of food, but this old guy just sees interesting Italian when ordering. I have always been very happy with everything I have ordered. I love their salads - pasta - and lunch menu too.

If you are hungry, in need of a friendly place with superb service and also like wine, then check out Villa Roma's deli (next to the formal restaurant). The deli is laid back and the waiters are always willing to take time to learn the types of wine you like and they will recommend one. The cork fee is only... More

Lovely experience. Something you're sure to enjoy. They even have dancing. I prefer to watch than participate, but still fun.
