A piece of Italy in Niagara Falls

Combine with the service, and we could not ask for a better experience. The owner made sure that everything was... read more

It is very easy to overlook this restaurant, but Villella's offers the best Italian cuisine in Niagara Falls, NY. Celebrated my brother Jimmy's birthday last night here. He had a combination mussels and clams appetizer and Chicken Marsala, while I had lobster bisque and... More

After visiting the frozen falls on our first night in town we found Villella's by chance and what a fun and rewarding experience it was for our taste buds. We had bruschetta for an appetizer and pizza for dinner. The pizza was outstanding and was one of the best I've ever eaten! The sauce was so flavorful. The owner stated... More

We saw this little place after leaving Niagra Falls and I am so glad we stopped! The pizza was authentic and absolutely delicious. The owner visited our table and made small talk. I highly recommend this restaurant! We are still talking about the meal.

Each time we have enjoyed this restaurant we have chosen to try a different dish and I think our choices this time were the best. I enjoyed the Chicken Fantasia with the brie and mushroom soup, my...
