Villa Italia Ristorante, Oil City, PA

The hoagies are still good. Small place with a small staff, so get there when there is no crowd. Very limited parking. Note that you need cash.

For a restaurant that has been a favorite of ours over many years, our latest visit was a huge disappointment. Sam, the longtime owner, was friendly as always. But in the 25 minutes we sat at our table, he was the only human being that came by. The two overworked waitresses completely ignored us. No water, no nothing. So we... More

Come here often as it is close to home. Every time the meals are excellent, the service is good as well. You won't find many authentic Italian places, let alone open 24 hours. No matter the time of day the staff is ready to serve and they have a large menu to choose from. They also have a kids menu... More

We had just loaded a U-Haul Box to be shipped and were treating our help to lunch. This place was recommended by the person at the U-Haul place. As others have stated, the decor needs updating and the fact they only accept cash is a bummer. But the service!!!! OMG! If the waitress had smiled or said a kind word... More

Open 24 hours a day, every day of the year! A great place for pizza, subs, pasta, beer and wine. There are always a few soups and pies of the day on the menu too. And the milkshakes are delish!

Whenever anyone comes back to Oil City one of the stops must be, "The Villa!" Sam always has a smile and a kind word. The food is the same as it has always been, excellent!

The deluxe sub on their bread is still the best I think. The shakes and fries are good too. It is always well staffed with good service. Oil City tap water remains some of the tastiest anywhere and drinks are served in glass, not plastic. The building remains unchanged which adds to the nostalgia along with all the warmth of... More

The Villa is the place to be in Oil City. It's been around forever. It has iconic status, and that is probably why everyone who visits overlooks the mediocre service and the ever rising prices. people just expect it to be that way and roll with it... We took an out of town relative, and they were appalled... It's all... More

I have eaten at the Villa for years and yes, as other reviewers note the decor needs updated. It is indeed what I remember from the late '60's. The food is good but not better. Well known in the area for their subs and the dressing on them. Portions are getting smaller and you do have to pay extra for... More
