Small, quiet, delicious

Many Italian meals under my belt from all over North America and this little unassuming slice of heaven blew my mind. Despite being in a hotel across the hall from the pool the food is top notch. I will return soon!

This restaurant was sort of like a hidden gem! My boyfriend and I were on a mini getaway and stumbled upon this restaurant along the way and absolutely loved it! We haven't been able to find a place near us similar. The staff was great as well and they had a wine that we simply cannot find anywhere else which... More

The food was outstanding. I had calamari fra diavalo. The calamari was so fresh and tender and the dish was perfectly seasoned. The restaurant is small with only 7 tables so call for a reservation. I highly recommend this place.

My daughter and I walked to Villella's from our hotel after a recommendation from the front desk clerk. To this day (Nov. 2015) it is still the best lasagna we have ever had! Ohhhh, and the garlic rolls....TO DIE FOR! If ever back in Buffalo, we will make a stop here again.

Small Italian restaurant inside an average hotel. There are only 7 or 8 tables. Reservations are a good idea. The view of the hotel indoor pool from the restaurant is not appealing. Food was good, not great. Service was pretty good. For appetizers, the warm salad and bean soup were surprisingly good. Main entrees, the pasta dinners were not prepared... More

Our lovely desk clerk at the Red Coach Inn called to make reservations for us. The restaurant is tiny (7 tables only) and attached to a motel on Rainbow Blvd. You overlook the motel indoor pool but, oh boy, is the food ever good. Everything homemade and delicious! Service was fast and friendly. If these guys ever moved to a... More

Looks much larger from the outside, but it's a restaurant inside of a small quaint hotel. Seven tables and a nice dark welcoming environment are what you can expect when you walk in. Quite a few items on the menu to choose from, everything I had was good.

Recommended by our hotel. And a good recommendation. The place has eight tables and was heaving. The service was a bit stretched but the food was great.

Great food, prepared to order. You would never think that this place would be that good (located in a cheap hotel) but it's some of the finest Italian food we've ever had. Make a reservation though, they fill up fast. Nothing bad on the menu, so suggestions are meaningless. Everything is great!
