About a week ago my family and I ate dinner at Villa Ravenna. Everyone's food was excellent. I had the Ravioli alla Panna, my dad had Carbonara with scallops and my sister had the Spaghetti Bolognese. What was really impressive about the restaurant was how approachable our waiter was. None of my family members are savvy about food and wine,... More

I had the prosciutto wrapped scallops for an appetizer and they were excellent. I had a spinach salad with asparagus, black olives, tomato and white onions that was also very good. For my meal, I had planned to have pasta but I couldn't resist their special which was antelope medallions and they were delicious. There were so many appetizers and... More

Yum!! Go there. The Grilled Pear Gorgonzola keeps showing up in my dreams. Amazing gnocchi. And they make their own limocello for after dinner. This is my favorite Italian in Tulsa and is as close as you can get to the real thing!

This is a lovely, Ravenna, Italy-family-owned restaurant. The food is excellent, service is outstanding and being married to a NY Italian that thinks the food is exceptional is a high achievement here. A surprise find in Tulsa.

Sergio Orioli, the owner, has greeted me warmly each and every time I have visited Villa Ravenna. He has always been omnipresent, vigorously enforcing his (decidedly stiff and old-fashioned) ideals about service on his hard-working wait staff. Despite reviews on multiple web-sites declaring this the "finest Italian food ever" or "the best Italian food in Tulsa", this is NOT excellent... More

Dear Sir, Your review is appreciated. To clarify, Italian food since the 30s and 40s has change a great deal. During the two world wars in which Italy was a very involved in, food was extremely limited. Certain recipes that were eaten only during the holidays can now be appreciated almost every day. Our restaurant is lucky to be able... More

Owned and operated by an Italian family, you won't find better Italian cuisine in town. VR has a fairly large menu with typical Italian dishes. I like the linguine with clams. There is a good wine list and often a musician playing. It is a small restaurant and we like the atmosphere.
