“Delicious Food, Great Staff, Nice Ambience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013

Delicious food, Great staff, Nice ambience. This restaurant is a dynamo! Casual, comfortable, family owned. Clearly, the owners take pride in their business. The wait staff were friendly, knowledgable, polite and attentive. The food was delicious! The bread was fresh, the pasta marinara was piping hot and well prepared. The chicken rotolini was superb! Equally delicious were the veal piccata, Gorgonzola gnocchi and the eggplant rotolini! All entrees were served piping hot, were nice in presentation, and were of ample portions. They were moist, perfectly seasoned, and clearly homemade. Absolutely no complaints! Remember to be patient.... Entrees are made fresh in this restaurant so don't expect the kitchen to serve food like an assembly line or fast food joint. Good food takes time to prepare and This restaurant takes pride in its food preparation and it shows! The wait time was not overly lengthy. The ambience was nice, as well. Pleasant scenes painted onthe walls, lovely Italian music, and clean, well spaced tables. The restaurant was clean, the restrooms were clean and parking was more than ample. Family friendly. Casual but not sloppy. We shall DEFINATELY return to Villa Palma.

“Overpriced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

We ate here with friends for the first time Friday night. The food is ok, not the best in the area, and overpriced. Servers are top notch and the atmosphere is quite cosy and romantic. The bread and dipping sauce is great with the bread being flown in from CA. Chicken parm is greasy, no cheese. Salad was rabbit sized but with great balsamic vinaigrette dressing. Pasta came out lukewarm and stuck together. We had a long, long wait until our main courses were served to us. Bathrooms were out of order (yes, really) even before we entered the restaurant and we were there 2 hours for our meal, so we knew not to drink much. Considering there are so many truly great Italian restaurants in the area, I will not be going back to this place any time soon.

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

Wish I could eat here all the time! Everything is excellent. They make everything to order so it takes a little longer, but enjoy that time while they are freshly preparing your meal and slow down to relish in the fact that fast isn't always good! Everything is made fresh from the dipping oil for the bread to the salad dressing to your main entree. You will leave satisfied and full! Eggplant mozzarella appetizer was amazing. We bring gluten free pasta for our kids and they will prepare them anything they want. Love this place.

“Very good pasta”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

This is a very traditional Italian joint. Good soup, good salad, warm bread, and nice entrees. Veal and seafood are both good. I love the eggplant! Nice servers as well!
