Best Italian take-out in the area.

This store is run by the same people who used to have a restaurant by the same name at the site where RiteAid is now. Meticulous attention to quality of their food. A lot of their products are frozen, so it's convenient for local residents or visitors who have facilities for defrosting and heating... read more

The owners are super nice and the food is just exquisite! Felt like my grandma's Italian cooking! We told them that our hotel didn't have a microwave and they kindly offered to heat up the food for us! We'll come back for sure! Unfortunately we didn't take any pictures. ... we jumped right onto the food! ;)

When you are too tired to go out to dinner but want delicious food Villa Vespa is the place to go. If you call ahead (before noon) you can order chicken piccata and other offerings but if you don't then you take what they have. Last night it was chicken alfredo and chicken parmesan with a frozen loaf of bread... More

I have several times gotten prepared food from here, chicken and eggplant parmigiana. All food and homemade fettuccine is great. Well worth the money. Also, the biscotti is the best.

What a gem.....during the lacrosse tournament we had adults eating late , kids early. Always saw the sign ...so stopped. So accommodating. Take out was packaged in micro wave containers for the hotel. Food was AMAZING ! So good we went back the next night. If you want something you can warm in your microwave at the hotel and maybe...

We ordered a tray spaghetti and meatballs for dinner and it was soooo good that we went back 2 days later and ordered a tray of the lasagna! I must say that growing up in an Italian home with home made tomato sauce every weekend did not compare to Villa Vespa sauce! Shhhhh! Don't tell my parents!!! I am planning... More

No time to fix dinner but not in the mood to dine out? No worry, stop by Villa Vespas for the best Italian takeout anywhere! All homemade from spaghetti sauce, jams, bread or complete meals; you will never be disappointed.

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.
