Italian

If you like Italian this is the place to go! The food here is delicious and you don't walk away hungry. Centered in the middle of town if you are out for a stroll or window shopping you should stop in and try this place.

We made reservations for a Thursday night, then when we arrived our group of five (including three adults and two small kids) was shoved at a table against the door to the kitchen, where waitresses were coming in and out frequently. The restaurant had plenty of empty tables. We asked for a different table, pointing to one that was exactly... More

This is not a restaurant in which you see a lot of plate with your food. In fact, be prepared to take some home. We went with old friends of the restaurant and the hospitality made us felt valued, even though this was our first visit. I stayed with the specials. Pork/beef stuffed cherry peppers had "pop". And the Basil... More

Good Italian food at Billy's. The restaurant is busy so reservations are recommended. Service was attentive and we had a nice experience.

My husband and I celebrated our 28th anniversary with a dinner at Billy's. The food was beyond delicious as usual. The place was packed with people, and we saw many turned away because of the long wait (reservations, people!) but they should have taken whatever time was available to enjoy the superb food. We particularly loved the scallop and crab... More

The title pretty much says it all. I had to choose "August 2014" on the drop down menu for when we were here because it wouldn't allow me to go back further, so let me say up front that our experiences were several years ago. My husband and I have gone to Old Forge every year for fifteen years with... More

Spurr of the moment, trip to Old Forge, NY. Feeling the urge for a nice steak dinner...walk in to Billy's, not knowing a thing about the place. Received wonderful service. It was quick, and the staff was pleasant and happy. When we looked at the menus and saw it was an Italian place, because they were so friendly, we couldn't... More

My family of four were really pleased with our meal and the service provided. Upon entering there was a 1/2 hour wait, and Billy offered to take my cell phone number and call me when our table opened up. This allowed us to explore the neighboring shops and the kids stayed happy!!! The food was all very tasty! I would... More

This is truly a gem the food is really good the service is even better Billy himself walking around is so social he makes you feel like family. My husband's on a low carb diet so past is not always an option... More
