The food and atmosphere was perfect, the service was good (one appetizer order was wrong and it was quickly corrected!), and our bill was very reasonable! I even ordered a dinner to go for my husband because he didn't want to miss out... More

This is a very tiny restaurant not busy at all no music or anything playing so when we went we were the only ones in the room & I felt like our conversation was being shared with waiter and chef.

Truly authentic cuisine was enjoyable to sample. This is no chain restaurant. Setting is small but cozy. Definitely worth trying.

I love going to Villella's! The food is amazing. The rice balls, pizza, and chicken Parmesan are my personal favorites. It's definitely worth the visit!
