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

Finally got to try the new location. Food is still quite good, as is the service. The restaurant is much roomier, but even noisier than the old location.

MANGIA! MANGIA! FROM THE ISLE OF PONZA If you happen to find yourself in Stamford, CT as we did about ten days ago, then you need to pop into the Villa Italia located in the Hampton Inn at 26 Mill River Street. The restaurant, a staple in Stamford for 25 years decided they needed bigger digs and relocated but the... More

I've been going to Villia Italia for over 30 years and have always recommended this place. However the new location in the Hampton Hotel, while it looks great and is so much bigger than the strip mall location, has made it too big. The food was absolutely terrible. We went with another couple and all four of the dishes were... More

Have always been a fan of Villa Italia, but wasn't certain that would be the case after they moved. The restaurant is larger, service better, and the food still excellent.

Excellent Italian cuisine - the Villa Italia restaurant was located on East Main Street and is now on 26 Mill River Street in West Stamford off of West Main Street in the Hampton Inn. The food is traditional Italian but the staff always surprises us with their great specials of the day and standard menu fare. The pizzas are thin... More
