This will be your go to regular weekly restaurant!

If you are looking for a warm, friendly, family environment and delicious food, try Villa Italia at their new location in Stamford. Regulars know how good the food is and has been here for years. The fish, pasta, specials are always delicious and the pizza dough bread is to die for! You will feel... read more

I came to Villa Italia because it was conveniently located to the Hampton Inn. The staff was friendly and welcoming. I got a seat right away (on a Wednesday night). I had Veal Saltenbocca, which was pretty tasty, but the veal may have been a bit overdone and tough. There was a ton of cheese on it, which was a... More

I've eaten here twice since it moved across to the Hampton Inn location. My hubby's family used to eat here often over the years at the other location, but I had not tried it when it was there. Both times I've eaten at Villa Italia I was nauseous after. The food is not very good and taste a little too... More

We had a group dinner eat villa italia, the food was disappointing. Especially the pasta dish with sausages and garlic and olive oil sauce, there was no sauce, the pasta was under cooked while the sausages were in an almost watery texture as those with fake meat. The dish was bland, tasteless.

Been going to this restaurant for years. Family run restaurant where everyone knows you. Best dishes are chicken milanese, lasagna, penne vodka, chicken piccata, chicken scarpialla, linguini with clams and mussels, pizza, and of course, the bread basket! Pricing is a bit off: appetizers and desserts are over priced. Entrees avg. $19-$22.

I stayed on business for 10 days in Stamford and used the bar and restaurant on numerous occasions. The bar is great, staff fantastic and friendly and the food magnificent. The spicy sausage and chicken was so good I had it two nights from the 6. Thank you to all the staff who made me feel very welcome even allowing... More

How many ways to fail. 1. Slooooowww service. Our reservation was at 7:45. Every step of the service took a long time. Good thing I'd had a light snack before I came. The server was pleasant, but... were they understaffed? Slow cook? I couldn't figure it out. 2. Lobster ravioli was fishy and shredded something... but I"m not sure it... More

I always come here, they changed the menu a bit and removed some of the food content. But I love it here, great enviornment, love the bar now. Although bartenders a very slow and take forever to make you a drink.

This restaurant has moved from one side of Stamford to another. What an improvement! It is larger, the tables further apart and it has the same wonderful, down-home cooking, and the same reasonable prices. We like it so much we've been there twice in the last month! This is a family owned restaurant and they truly care about their customers.... More
