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.

If you want something alittle off the main roads, try this Italian restaurant. It's a personalized experience, one on one with nice atmosphere and good food. We love the lemon dressing they put on salads and my favorite is eggplant.

It's my second time in 2 years and the Chicken Parmigiana is the stuff I will dream about until our next visit. Tiramisu was awesome as well!!

Friends took us to La Villa on a Saturday evening, and we are converts. This small family-owned and run Italian restaurant offers authentic Italian home cooking and a wonderful ambience. The food was the best we'd had since leaving DC, and comparable to the best Italian food I've ever eaten, all for a very reasonable cost. The Head Chef is... More

Family run... and I mean family... husband in the kitchen, wife out serving. Been at this location some 8-years. They serve a simple and robust Italian menu. Cloth table cloth and napkins, demure surroundings with oil paintings, decent house wine by the glass $5/glass for Cabs and $7/glass for the Chianti. Bread is piping hot out of the oven, with...

2nd time eating there. Absolutely fabulous. Food is delicious. I'm assuming the waitress was the owner. She was so accommodating & sweet.

There were 4 of us, my brother had the lobster ravioli and I had the 3 cheese ravioli, both were light and freshly made. My husband and teenage son had the chicken parm and... More

Our favorite place around the corner was busy so we gave this place a shot. Atmosphere was plain. A large group was finishing up and very loud. We were not noticed for 10 minutes. The waitress was friendly and competent, but overwhelmed as she was finishing up with the large party. Hostess was no help. We waited over an hour... More
