Small and crowded but comfortable, probably less than 20 tables. Fast initial service with drinks ordered and served. Small plastic glasses for water or soda. Salads came fast but the side salad was finely chopped....almost as fine as cole slaw. Balsamic dressing was watered down so was lighter on taste than expected. Veal parm was mostly breading and cheese with... More

Met warmly at the door and seated immediately. The server was very pleasant, professional and gracious. The meal was hot and delicious with the chicken parm and stuffed shells being our favorite. The icing on the cake was when the owner began to sing in Italian. Truly a gifted singer capping off a great dining experience.

Ate there last night. Excellent food, good portions and wonderful staff. I am a local and it is better then the higher priced restaurants. If the owner is there you might even get her to sing an aria she has a classically trained voice. I highly recommend this restaurant.

This restaurant has excellent Italian food choices for eating in or for take out. We ate in and really enjoyed what we ordered. We shared calamari and it was done just the way we like it- crispy, light batter over fresh, sweet calamari. We also shared steamed clams in white sauce and there were plenty of clams in the appetizer... More

This local restaurant is well worth a visit. The food is excellent, the staff very friendly. My wife and I enjoy dining here. This restaurant is well worth the price of the meal, In an area which caters to tourist summer business Villa Sorrento ranks high with us locals.

A favorite with the locals where you can escape from the usual touristy beach eateries that are all show and flash. Quite and warm atmosphere where one can enjoy good food, and feel at home during dinner or lunch. Try it, you'll like it!

We visited this place December 4, 2015. A cozy little place tucked away in a strip mall. We ordered the chopped antipasto as an appetizer. There are a lot of folks that apparently liked this dished chopped, but at this place, it is essentially pulverized. So much so that we couldn't tell which meats were which and the cheese was...

So we just ordered entrees. The do serve fresh bread and it was warm and delicious. I ordered Fettuccine Versuviano but I asked them to substitute the... More

We (8 adults) had dinner at this local Italian restaurant last evening. We started with a Fried Calamari appetizer that was one of the best we have ever had, tender not rubbery and was adequately sized for all of us to share. We ordered several veal entrees, Parmigiana, Marsala, Scallopini, a chicken Cacciatore, all priced $17 - $20, etc. All... More
