Villa Paul, in an old Main St. house which has added to, has been a steady Hampton Bays' Italian restaurant for many, many years. The interior dining rooms have been redecorated and the menu expanded but all the classic American-Italian style dishes are still there as well as newer farm-to-table appetizers, entrees and desserts. Steaks, chicken, fish, shellfish, pastas, soups,... More

We went to Villa Paul's for my husband's 65th birthday. The manager and staff were very nice. However, the food was terrible. I started with the Manhattan clam chowder. It was good but had just a few clam bits in it. At $6,50 for a very small cup, I should have totally skipped it. Then I had the veal caprina.... More

We have been dining at the Villa Paul for years! In fact, we held my sister's small wedding there in 1967, as well as our rehearsal dinner, and many other family celebrations. The food is excellent, as is the staff. The decor is charming, old-world style with a splash of modern, very clean, and very welcoming!

Villa Paul has been a local favorite for generations. You will find a predictable menu of classics. The food is consistently good, and the atmosphere is friendly. You can rent a room for events, sit at a favorite spot, near the fireplace or a quiet window. Make this place your own.

A group of my colleagues and our wives went out for a pre-holiday party at Villa Paul recently. I had never been there before and was pleasantly surprised. The food, service, and ambience was well above average. I especially enjoyed the Veal Parmagiana which is usually the dish a order when going to an unfamiliar Italian restaurant. If its prepared...

First, beautiful relaxing atmosphere- Nice fireplace and wood work- Excellent wait staff- makes you feel like you are part of the family! The food is worth a trip! I'm lucky as I just moved here! My husband is Brooklyn Italian and he loved it! Order the Eggplant tower, baked clams, veal Parm, and shrimp parm. Have the butter brickle cream... More

Visited this restaurant on 11/21/2015 for my aunt's birthday. We had a party of six and we called to make reservations the previous night. Fast service, excellent food, and an overall great experience! Would definitely return and recommend to anyone looking for a great meal in the Hampton Bays area.

My friend and I decided last minute to have dinner at the Villa Paul italian restaurant for dinner this past weekend. We had a great experience. I had the pasta bolognese and she had the linguini alfredo. Mine was delicious. I really liked the homemade bolognese sause. We loved the decor of the inn. The restaurant is a converted home....

Thank you so much for your wonderful review! We appreciate your comments and your patronage. (sorry about the spotty service-we were short handed that night as one of our servers called late in the day with an illness) More

We have eaten at Villa Paul for 40 years and enjoyed three generations of Penzas. This event was a party of 30 for dinner. The service was excellent. The food was good but not up to Villa Paul standards. It is difficult to serve perfect dinners for 30 while also serving a very busy restaurant. Still, I would do this... More

Went to Villa Paul while spending a few days in the Hamptons. I have been going there since it has opened and still think it is one of the best in the Hamptons! Food is always good, the staff is friendly and helpful. It is always good to walk in, as you know what you will be getting! Good drinks,... More
