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

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
