There is no "sign-in" for seating, and clearly no method for seating waiting customers. When we questioned the owner as to the seating method, he yelled at us; not just spoke crossly, I mean, YELLED at us. We left. We will not even try to eat there again.

I dined here about six years back. I liked Billy's then, and I liked it even better this time. Menu selections are good. Ingredients and preparation are first-rate. The server brought our tasty entrees just as we were finishing our rolls and salads. Perfect timing. The average Trip Advisor review is just 1/2 star short of 5. I have decided... More

This is a small restorante, but overflowing with good food at reasonable prices. I had a great piece of fish and it was enough for 2, and was tasty. The wine selection is good and served by the bottle or generous glass. I will be going back to try some other entrees.

Billy's has great Italian food. It's a small place, make a reservation if you're there on a weekend like we were. Service was excellent.

My husband and I had a very good dinner here. The meals come with a nice salad with romaine lettuce which I appreciate much more than iceberg. The only dressing is oil and vinegar which was OK for my husband but I like other choices. I had the lobster ravioli and my husband had the linguini with white clam sauce.... More

On our visit to Billy's, the service was terrific, the food pleased everyone in our party (several doggie bags--ample servings), and the cozy dining room accommodated our party of 5 nicely. In addition to typical Italian choices, the menu included broiled fish and broccoli with garlic which was a fabulous lower calorie/carb meal. We will definitely return there when next... More

We six all enjoyed our meals, solid 7.5/8s of 10. Nice selections, reasonably priced with friendly, attentive waitstaff. Not pretentious, just nice, honest Italian food.

Last minute decision, called for reservation at 4:30 for 5:30, good thing as it filled quickly and by the time we left at 6:30 there were customers waiting. Make a res! Food was excellent, one server and she hustled. She managed to cover all the tables and make it look easy. This is a great spot for great Italian food.

Came to this restaurant on the recommendation of a local person. It was a very nice find indeed. The entrée was good fresh and original and came with a wonderful dinner salad. A smaller restaurant with a very helpful it attentive staff. The owner introduced to himself and came back to check on the vaulting. I would absolutely recommend this... More

Excellent gluten free pasta dishes. Everyone enjoyed their meals. All meals came with fresh bread and salads. Very generous portions and excellent service. Looking forward to stopping by here again!
