Atmosphere was great, Service was good, Salads and side of dressing was very good. BUT the main Entrees were very Disappointing. Spouse ordered Gorgonzola Haddock, and I ordered the Seafood Ravioli. You could Smell the Nasty Fish Order as BOTH Entrees approached. As for we have never had these two Particular meals prepared this way We were not sure if... More

Great basic italian, nothing too fancy or innovative, but very good. Housed in an old bank at the center of town, lots of parking close by.

Love this place, awesome food, butternut squash ravilio's my favorite and the martini's are good. Outside is nice during the summer, a little loud with motorcycles but bearable.

We dined here with another couple last Sat night before the Symphony NH performance. While the atmosphere is nice and the people are friendly, we were truly disappointed in the service and food. We started at the bar while waiting for our friends to arrive, and that was fine - bartender was a bit overwhelmed, but drinks were good. We... More

We returned here last night after being away for about a year. Menu is a little pricey with many of the entrees containing cream sauces but we both found something we liked and especially enjoyed the dessert. We will go back..

First of all the staff here are all so friendly...The atmosphere here is not stuffy at all, very relaxed either in the dining area or the bar....we prefer the bar. After reading past reviews, I had to write.... The appetizers are all delicious, we've had all of them and never have any tasted so-so, and the bruschetta is to die... More

We have dined here several times before and always found the food to be good. The appetizers this time were so-so. The bruschetta looked like something a 12 year old would make and had very little flavor. The artichoke/gorgonzola app tasted like the frozen apps that we buy at the supermarket. The butternut squash/philo dough app was good.

The food here is terrible. For a place that calls itself a italian restaurant its a waste of time and money. Desserts are frozen- pasta and sauce are not homemade and food overall leaves a lot to be desired.

You cannot go wrong at Villa Banca. Everything on the menu is fantastic. The veal is a must. This is our go to restaurant when we eat downtown. You can eat in the bar area (casual) or in the dining area with a very nice presentation. You can also dine on the sidewalk in nice weather.

This restaurant is situated inside one of the former local banks of Nashua where the vault is still prominently featured in the dining room. The room is beautiful with lovely light fixtures and large windows to allow lots of natural light. The food is wonderful...no matter what you order and they go out of their way to accommodate special requests.... More
