After hearing many positive things, my husband and I decided to give Villella's a try, and boy are we glad we did! Very small and quaint- we each started with a very generous glass of Lambrusco, followed by fresh bread with a delicious bean and onion oil to dip. From appetizer, to soup (mushroom Brie soup was creamy and flavorful...... More

I ordered the fruiti de mare and it was excellent. We were with a group of 4, and everyone loved the food. Mark was great, and added some great personality.

Read Yelp reviews and decided to give it a try. Seems like a local favorite. Seating is limited here and we had to wait for a bit before we got a table. The server is the one who would be your chef and they are good at both. Although the service is a little slow, the food was worth the... More

I came here before and everything was delicious this time every thing was amazing tried something different. The black ink pasta it was different and definitely worth the try! This place hasn't let me down yet!

The rice ball appetizer was the best, pizza was delicious...if not the best, then close. Meat sauce was crazy good. Very small place and we watched lots get turned away, make a reservation. Had stains on plates and fruit flies that we had to battle away, but the food was worth it. If not for that, it would be perfect!

That I was the only diner is telling. First I was instructed by the chef--apparently the only employee present--told to sit anywhere. That's when I noted the dirty cloths. Food spills on the overhangs, so it sits on your clothes. Yuk! No lunch menu, only dinner with comparable prices. The red sauce is thin, and very garlic-y. Maybe the plan... More

...but I always end up getting the same thing that I love! There are so many tasty sounding options on the menu that I want to try, but the "salmon alla herbe" is just so good I can't resist! I have been to Villellas several times and enjoyed the experiences tremendously. First off, this cozy space feels so relaxed and... More

I continue to go back to Villella's, this time with two girlfriends. We had a great time. 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. The food was very high priced for what we got. Olive garden is cheaper & so much better puts this... More
