We have eaten there for more than five years. It's like going with an extended family function. The staff works hard to make everyone enjoy his/her holiday and the food is second to the camaraderie of the extended family who joins us. No complaints about the food (it's typical Thanksgiving fare) with a vast desert bar. I look forward to... More

We went there because we had a Groupon discount coupon. If readers of this review are headed to this restaurant, make sure you ask if there is an event going on in the next room. The noise level, especially the excruciatingly loud, thumping music, from the wedding party in the next room (really just the same room separated by a... More

Slow, food not that tasty. I ordered chicken parmesan and the meat want even flattened, barely cooked. Not much cheese, sauce had no flavor. Maybe I just ordered the wrong type of food. My friend wasn't thrilled wirh her meal either ans we'll never go back.

We eat here often. It is very clean, good food, and friendly people. You can eat in the bar or the dinning room. The bathrooms are newly renovated and kept spotless. The wine dinners are the best. This is one of our favorite places any day of the week.

We were warmly greeted by someone at the door and given a choice to were we wanted to sit. The restaurant was decorated nicely and seemed to be very clean. There were many choice to... More

Best service ever! We just moved to Ludlow and everyone recommended the place. The owner and chef came to the table to ask for feedback, ask for Celena, the waitress, very nice lady! And the food was excellent, we had mussels as appetizer and steak for dinner. My only complain would be the music, needs a little updating :) def... More

I will defiantly be back!! Tony and his entire crew did such an amazing job, the service was fantastic. My dinner could not have been cooked better, and it's just a fun place to go to. My desert was probably the greatest desert I ever had. It was a lava cake that melted in my mouth. I will recommend the... More

The Villa Rose was our venue for my grandmother's 98th birthday this weekend. They did an amazing job! 30 of us in the party, service was amazing, food served promptly and everything was delicious! Tony and his crew know how to make a special night one to remember!

Everyone here is extremely friendly and professional. I've been here several times to dine and always have a spectacular meal. It's a diverse restaurant, the dining room is great for accommodating the whole family and the bar is friendly, inviting and I've caught many live musicians putting on great shows. The food is always fresh; you can get everything from... More
