It's surprising but I've lived in Sunnyvale for most of my life but I hadn't been to Pezzella's before. We enjoyed our meal. I had cheese ravioli with Carmine's spicy red sauce. The pasta was thicker than all other ravioli that I've had and I...liked it. The sauce was very good. It was quite thick with a nice tang. My husband had the linguine misto. The waiter informed him when he ordered that they were out of crab legs and fresh claims but he would get more shrimp and canned clams. My husband loves shrimp so this was ok with him. He said it was good but would have been better with the crab and fresh clams. The linguine was fresh and perfectly cooked. He liked that the dish wasn't overly sauced.More

If you are looking for a restaurant with good food and an old Italian atmosphere, this is the place for you and your family or you and your date. Family owned and operated, this place is quaint and cozy. Service is top notch, owners meet...and greet you. Once they seat you the real service begins. You are waited on by people who love what they do. Whether it's your first time visiting or you are a repeat customer, you feel appreciated. Good, I mean above average food and healthy portions make this restaurant a keeper. So if you want to take the family to a place where you feel like your at home or you want a nice quiet place to take a date, you have arrived. Pezzella's Villa Napoli takes you back to a taste of Italy.More

I recently went for lunch at the VIlla Naploi with about a dozen friends, and was amazed at the lasagna. Lasagna is one of my very favorite dishes. They make it with ground round (like my family does) instead of chopped up sausage (like many...restaurants) which is usually to spicy. It was nice and cheesy. The portion was large (like my family serves) and the sauce was fantastic--not thin and not over spiced. This was the best restaurant lasagna I ever had--just like home. My friends (several of whom are also Italian) enjoyed their meals as well. The villa has been operating for about 40 years and looks like that. It is rather non-descript and looking old. However, as far as I am concerned the taste, quality and size of the dish is what counts. The waitress was very friendly and helpful. I am returning with my family and have friends. I really regret not having known about Villa Napoli for so long.More

I was at this place some 30 years ago and believe it or not: nothing has changed. The interior looks a little older and dustier, but the food is still the same. True Italian cuisine at its best. The Lasagne I had was delicious. Prices...are very reasonable and the wine offering is adequate. If you want to have a feeling of how it was in Silicon Valley in the 90’s, just step into the villa and you won’t be diappointed.More

Overall, good food and pleasant staff. Not outstanding and they really could have turned the heat on. It was frigid when we first arrived. I am sure the evening atmosphere is much better than when we went in the afternoon.

We took an out town guest to a restaurant that has been in business 61 years, how can you go wrong? It did. With the service that is. We ordered a pizza appetizer, a fettuccini Alfredo, a italian sausage sandwich with fries and a chicken...Marsala. A couple of minutes after the appetizer was served the entrees arrived. I’d have thought that this restaurant by now would know-how to pace the dishes but, obviously I was wrong. So we explained to the server the obvious, so he took them back. When we finished the appetizer, the entrees were served: yep you guessed: cold. The chicken was ice cold, the French fries that came with the sandwich were inedible. We asked the server if the chicken could be put in a microwave ( anything to warmed it up), we don’t have a microwave oven was the answer. Place it under the hot lights: no answer. The fettuccini, well you get the picture. To his credit, the server brought a dish of piping hot fries. The pizza appetizer was delicious, so was the cannoli. I don’t think we will be back.More

We dined here with friends and each ordered a different entree from the voluminous menu. The general consensus was that the food was adequate but nothing to shout about. The cheesecake was particularly soulless.

I recently ate here. I travel extensively for my work, eat out often, and have been here several times. It was also one of my dad’s favorite places. The food is decent On my last and final visit, I ordered the “special”, no drinks or...extras, drank water. After tax and tip it came to 65$. Just me, by myself, 65$! Holy Cow! Even yelp shows prices 11-30$ I own that I did not ask the price, this is my fault. I spoke to the “manager” to ask why the special was 2-3 times the cost of a typical menu item and express my displeasure. She did not offer up any explanation. I received a response that an entry level McDonalds employee could top. “I’m sorry you feel that way”. Really? Actually, what could she say? I don’t understand how gauging a customer once would translate into future success.More

You just can't get me to like an Italian place to go out unless it is really good and this place has earned my both thumbs up now no matter how many times my husband and I have gone here they still have the best...Italian food other then my own home.. I don't care if you are just getting a pizza it's very good and the service has always been great. Family friendly, handicap friendly, very good wine list. It's a must try if you are around Sunnyvale and want to have Italian. Also has a sports bar like bar area and has been around many years here in Sunnyvale..More

This is an old family Italian restaurant that has so much potential, unfortunately you walk into a terrible smell and an unfriendly hostess. The food was delicious once you became acclimated to the odor. Hope to visit again t better circumstances

We were a group of 8 that went for dinner. Made a reservation, and the table was ready. Food was excellent - from the pizza, to the lasagna, the cannelloni and the sea bass. We all had something different and each enjoyed it very much....Service was very good, and the servers were friendly and helpful with the small changes in orders. Was crowded for a Saturday at 6PM, but otherwise was nice atmosphere.More
