Make a reservation or risk not getting in! Fantastic unassuming spot at 31 & 131. Fresh homemade Italian food with excellent service. We had a fabulous meal! Try the veal saltimboca or the ravioli. A bit pricey but worth it!

I was there with a large party, food was ok, bit over priced but nothing to complain about. The bill comes and higher than normal "large party" tip was included. Nothing outrageous just higher than you normally see when it's added to your bill. One of the members who couldn't be more mild mannered questioned the gratuity and that's when... More

Pretty nice atmosphere, but the price of food is a bit high compared to some of the high end Italian places that I have been to. A meal for two and two glasses of wine cost $85with tip.

Went on a Wednesday night kind of late (8 pm) and when i was being seated, i could see this was a very authentic italian restaurant. Lots of wine neatly stored in visible wine racks and just a very warm italian feel to the dining room. Dinner choices were abundant ranging from the obvious pasta dishes to meat, seafood and... More

My daughter and I had a great dinner! We each had a beautiful salad and split the gnocchi . The bread and bread sticks with dips were yummy too! Dessert a delight.

Great authentic Italian Food in Petoskey. Quaint and quiet with excellent service. Great place for business or with that significant other. The food was great, I generally order Chicken Parm when I travel and theirs' would match up to some of the best. I will return agian.

I have been coming to petoskey for three summers and never went to the villa because of its outward appearance - strip mall location and generally bad vibe. I went last night because my husband is in the hospital right across the street and thought I would give it a try. It was surprisingly delightful. So good in fact I... More
