A taste of home

We enjoy the food here as being good Italian as we know it up north. They do most aspects of a meal very well, but put too much salt in their food, especially the red sauce. I enjoyed the chicken Francese and veal dishes.

We ate there a few nights ago. The veal was the best we have had outside of NY, fantastic. Not a great wine list but worth a visit.

My wife and I had a craving for some good Italian and LaVilla didn't dissapoint! The eggplant involtini were perfect! I enjoyed the lingini and clams and my wife had penne ala vodka. I was a little concerned that we were the only table in the place on a Friday night on a holiday weekend, but these thoughts were quickly... More

My family is down here for vacation and we were looking for some Italian. We found this place after Trip Advisor & Google had positive reviews. It didn't disappoint. Small, cozy inside with only 10-12 tables. Run by a husband/wife team from Jersey. She was very friendly and we had great service... you wait a little bit but everything is... More

We're from New Jersey, but have had a place in Murrells Inlet for 5 years now and go out for dinner 2 or 3 times a week when we are there. Used to go to Carrabbas & Old World Italian restaurants but were not thrilled. Found La Villa on TA and tried it. Nice, quiet atmosphere, good service, great Veal... More

I'm often skeptical of excellent reviews on Trip visor, but I'm very happy to say that visit was wonderful. Not only, was the service with Bernadette wonderful but the meal was even better! The meal was topped off with a visit with both, Alphonso and Bernadette which made the night perfect. Do yourself a favor and visit the next time... More

Just a wonderful experience! Alfonzo and Bernadette (the owners) made us feel like family immediately. It was simply the best Italian food we have had anywhere outside of the Northeast. Wonderful baked ziti and our incredibly picky son loved the spaghetti with meat sauce. And the tiramisu was perfect. Great food, great people. We could not have asked for anything... More

The best Italian food in South Carolina! We bring all of our guests to this family owned restaurant and they all love it. The chicken parm is fantastic but my favorite is the linguini with clams. Great food, fantastic chef and great service. You must try this little slice of Italy. You will be hooked!

Ate at this restaurant for the first time tonight. We had eggplant parm and spaghetti with meatballs. Gravy is delicious. Not heavy; just right. Staff was extremely friendly and attentive. Definitely making this one of our regular dining spots

The fra diavolo sauce tasted like spicy ketchup, and was too wet. On the upside, at least the pasta was al dente.
