We want to like it but......

We used to be regulars here but visits in the last year or so have been disappointing. The food is generally good, but nothing special. Where they have fallen down now the last few times is in the poor service. This last visit we were ignored for 15-20 minutes and had to ask if we could get... read more

This was our second time to La Villa and we will return. Service and food are excellent. They are always busy because it's popular with families, couples, friends or small parties. They have a very good dessert menu but the gelato isn't on the menu. It's fresh so leave room if you can. Great menu, many selections. We love this... More

Good service. This was late lunch. Very nice after a trip to the Museum up the street. Many flavors of Gelato.

This restaurant had been recommended to us. Since we were in the area we made reservations. The service was good, the food was average. We noticed that food was delivered several times to the wrong tables and at least once someone complained their food was cold.

My partner and I are locals and stopped in here for a quick bite to eat. The establishment looked well put-together and inviting but what we encountered was anything but. We essentially stood in the reception area for 10 minutes listening to a waitress casually converse with a patron (the only one visibly present at the time). We politely attempted... More

Hi Justin, I have just spoken with the bartender on duty the evening you and your partner came to our restaurant. It seems she tried to be as helpful as possible with you and did in fact speak with you when you arrived for your reservation. You did not wait twenty minutes without service or a personal greeting. An apology... More

We went to La Villa Bistro for the first time tonight. Friends had been recommending it so we finally went, and we live just up the road. Calm, peaceful atmosphere, several tables but not crowded, nice bar, and awesome food. We were recently in Venice so this was a good test and we were so impressed with the pasta dishes.... More

We love dining out in Vermont. We predominantly eat out in Burlington, although this place is right down the street from our house. We decided to try it after seeing a movie. Unlike most places in BTV: We showed up at 9 and were seated right away, had some of the best cocktails around (an amazing Old Fashioned), great Caesar... More

Just revisited this great little Italian bistro at the end of September. I first ate there 2 years ago with my sister. My husband and I were staying close by and I could not wait to take him there also. There is no glamorous decor just a simple and clean restaurant. The food is delicious and the service was great....

I HATE writing negative reviews, but I think this is worthy. Stopped in for lunch and had a terrible Pizza. I ordered it well done, dark crust, crispy. I got it doughy, as if cooked in a 300 degree oven. The sausage was diced. Diced. How totally unappetizing, as if it had come straight from a plastic bag. Awful sauce,... More

Geez, Tom. That was particularly rough. I'm truly sorry you had a bad experience here. Our pizza is cooked on slate at 550 degrees and the sausage is imported Italian cooked fresh in the same ovens. We use low moisture-part skim mozzarella to avoid that pile of oil found on some pizzas, and it usually stands right up on your... More

Excellent service, quality food, in a neat restaurant setting . The Smoked Alfredo was a creative experience in sensory food taste. And the chocolate decadent slice of pure chocolate was out of sight. Go there and enjoy a great Italian foodie dinner
