Delicious Food

The food and service were excellent. The proprietor came over to our table to chat and made us feel we were the only ones in the restaurant. Sharon & Ernie G.

This is a small 8-table restaurant with rustic Italian food hidden in a Motel 6. My wife and I walked 6 blocks in the July heat just to get there and it was well worth all the sweat. Everything looked great on their menus and was very reasonably priced; however, if you only were allowed to order one thing, I... More

Restaurants in this area are limited unless you like Indian cuisine (which I don't) so we asked our hotel staff for ideas and they suggested Villella's just l/2 block away from hotel/casino. It is small and on the side/back of a hotel. It is very cute inside & the servers were very friendly and attentive. But I must tell you... More

My family of three ate at Villella's during an overnight stay in Niagara Falls. It's a tiny place--only 8 tables--and popular (with good reason), so we were lucky to get a table after about a 15-minute wait on a Thursday evening. My daughter ate every drop of her bean soup and made a good dent in the spaghetti (which she... More

Small restaurant with open kitchen producing excellent Italian Dishes. Stuffed Banana Peppers were excellent. Mushroom Brie soup was a especially good. Salads were fresh and crisp and sauses and Italian dinners were very good. Add good service and this feels like chef in Kitchen Speciality restaurant.

Very good authentic Italian food. They have good selection of pasta and seafood dishes. The only suggestion is too use a bit less salt, Mushroom soup and fried calamari were very salty but overall was very good experience.

My family went here for dinner. We got lucky that they had a table. Reservations are best. The food was incredible. We had rice balls and calamari for appetizer. House dressing on salad was very good. My son had fish fry, my husband had chicken parm, and I had ravioli. Everything was good. My husband said it was hands down... More

We arrived at Niagra and after having checked in the hotel decided to go out for dinner. As it was a Sunday most places were shut, so I asked a doorman where we could eat. So the suggestion was here. We walked to the restaurant and waited for the waitress to finishing writing out her check. She told us it... More

I'm very sorry about your wait time, I understand your anger and thank you for your remarks but I need to clarify one thing about the employee who walked out with gloves on but no employee comes back in with gloves on, we do care about safety and since the employee had a cut on her hand she didn't want...

Off the beaten path and very small dinning area but great food, service and reasonable prices. Recommend it.... We were told to visit this establishment from Richard the Inn owner of Hanover House Bed & Breakfast. We also highly recommend staying at the Hanover House
