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

Located in a small strip mall setting, La Villa would be easy to miss. generally there is an 'Open' flag on Route 7 and an 'Open' neon light in the window. Informal dining with good food. Is often full. Fast service of mostly Italian flair. Small bar. Good value.

The waited had us in a nf out within 30 minutes. It seemed a little too fast and there wasn't much interaction. The food was good and the restaurant had a romantic feel. Good for a date and pizza.

The ravioli of the day was very good. My wife's shrimp and angel hair pasta was also great. The service was helpful and prompt yet not too overbearing.

I love the decor of this cute little bistro and we found it the perfect place for a girls night out. If it were not for the heavy hand on the salt, it would have been outstanding. Unfortunately, every dish ordered was over salted. If I had not had a $75 restaurant.com gift card, I would have sent everything back.... More

We dine out a lot. We like Italian food. We tried La Villa with a Jump On It deal. Our martini's at $6.50 each were pretty good. My wife had the fettucine bolognese at $18. It was ok. The saving grace for the dish was the home made pasta; it was very delicate. However, the sauce was a tad sour;... More

We eat at the Villa at least once per month and have always found it good food and service. They have somewhat unusual dishes as well as the old favorites. A good wine and local beer list. Service has always been good.

Went by tonight thinking a simple Pizza or Pasta Dish. Enjoyed a crispy fresh salad and then a featured dish of the day. Locally foraged pheasant-back mushrooms with fresh peas, sundried tomatoes and crispy proscuitto in marsala cream sauce over delicious fresh fettucine. Paired with a deliciously ripe Syrah, this made my weekend. I was so excited I congratulated the... More
