We were in town visiting old friends. They knew this place from it's previous location, frequented it often so made reservations for our dinner for 6 of us. It's in a Hampton Inn, very spacious and well lit, and it was full of travelers and locals enjoying dinner. We were happy to be able to meet one of the owners.... More

Ive celebrated many life events at the old location ever since I stumbled across this hidden gem 5 years ago. Last night, I went there for dessert. My cannoli was brought to me with a birthday candle and two staff members singing Happy Birthday. How sweet that was! It was the Perfect way to end my birthday celebration. I left... More

I thought that this hidden gem once they relocated in town would have suffered a set back, but not the case. The entire staff along with the new additions have transitioned very well. Good food, nice atmosphere, always friendly staff good for lunch and dinners. You really need to try this place

We visit family every year and always stay at the Hampton Inn which is very comfortable. I tend just to ignore hotel restaurants, but friends in Stamford knew this restaurant from its old location and we tried it for drinks one night and then for lunch. Very light and pretty inside, not the usual dark or rustic Italian restaurant decor.... More

Same owners as before they moved. Same great food, same great value. The new place is bigger as well as comfortable. The staff is cheerful and friendly. The service is good. This place gets busy so try to get there early

I am pleased to report that although they have moved the food is as grand as ever. Their new location is about three times as large as their old one and all newly decorated. Four of us had a lovely meal here. The food is extremely good, fresh ingredients, well-prepared and well presented. As I noted in my previous review,... More

I wanted to have a different kind of birthday party--not a sit-down dinner but one where we could mingle and enjoy good food; Villa Italia was so accommodating -- and the new location is wonderful! The appetizers, antipasta and amazing pizza were great -- everyone had a good time and there's so much space. The owners want to please, and... More

I ordered deliveries many times before and dined in once. My experience with this restaurant has always been pleasant. Deliveries arrive on time and the delivery man is polite and nice. My dine in experience is good as well, comfortable and relaxing. Compared with my recent awful experience with another local restaurant, this one definitely deserves a thumb up!

My husband and I used to visit Villa Italia on a regular basis. Shortly after the move to their new location we had dinner there and were somewhat disappointed although we put this down to change of venue. Tonight we went again....for the last time. The food was not up to standard; our traditional mussels were half the previous portions... More
