Great experience, fantastic food!

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... read 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.

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
