My family and I visit here often. The food is fantastic! Many choices of pastas, breads, desserts, and sides. They can even make special requests if you call ahead! The only negatives to this place are that they close at 6:00, so you cannot pick up dinner last minute, and it is extremely pricy. I spend $20 on average per... More

Stopped and picked up stuffed eggplant for dinner. Was so pleased that I went back the next day and purchased three meals to bring home. Also got a tiramisu which was excellent.

We rented a house... so, we were lucky enough to have access to an oven... yes... that's how good the food is here. We 'cooked' on our vacation!!! It took 'bout 20 minutes to heat everything up... and we were just in heaven. Great sauce. Great pasta.

Villa Vespa is great - the staff and owner could not be more friendly! The food is moderately priced and a very authentic. We will usually get the large family sized lasagna and freeze half, saving it for a later dinner option. A Very Good rating because it is not a sit down restaurant. However, they will heat up your...

The women who helped us choose our dinner were sincerely nice and friendly... and passionate about their food! They guaranteed we would like our dinner and they were right. I found it a bit on the pricey side for ready made take out but I guess that's Lake Placid for ya. I would recommend to friends and return.

Have tried regular lasagna, seafood lasagna, homemade pasta sauce and more and it has all been great! The owner/chef is very friendly and the take-out setting is convenient. They have several options in the refrigerator and the freezer so you can choose to either heat something up for dinner that night or save it in the freezer for a day... More

After hiking we hit Villa Vespa to stock up on a dinner we could warm up at our leisure at our accommodation. We were amazed and pleased at the variety of foods available to take out and warm up. Our group of four included two vegetarians, one pescatarian and a meat-lover and we were able to find delicious food to... More

Wow! We felt like we were at a relative's house. The owner (a wonderful lady) helped us out and made sure we had everything needed for our dinner later that night. We tried the Lasagna and also the Ziti. That way we could split the two and enjoy the best of both. We were so impressed when we ate these... More

Villa Vespa, in Lake Placid, NY, used to be a mouth-watering Italian restaurant not too many years ago. Now it's a mouth-watering Italian takeout restaurant. Everything is prepared from scratch the old-fashioned way. Like Mama used to make. Kim Vespa and crew are superb cooks and warm-hearted people. Check it out!
