Dined there on a Monday (maybe that was the reason why the service was sub-par). Food was good, but service was not existent. We were seated by kitchen staff (probably due to lack of personnel). The guy tried / struggled with taking the order - but did his best (probably not his day-to-day job). Waited a while to get our... More

We had never visited this restaurant without checking tripadvisor. We had 1 beer, 1 coke, 1 espresso, 1x Spagetthi Cabonara, 1x Lobster Ravoli and 1 dessert. A salad or a soup was also included within our main course. The cabonara with the bacon was really good, but the lobster ravioli were amazing and the mushrooms were so tasty. in total... More

What a pleasant surprise to find this small but lovely restaurant close to the Seneca Casino. The food was authentic and absolutely delicious: the pasta was cooked to perfection. One can see the kitchen and I could hear them pounding the chicken to make chicken marsala. I would highly recommend Villella's without reservation; although, it can be crowded at dinner... More

This restaurant is more of a private dining room than a commercial establishiment. 8 tables..that's all. We were very lucky to get a table on a Saturday night in the midst of a major downpour...but we did and the food was absolutely awesome. The bruchetta was perfectly seasoned and presented. Each of our mains were great and kudos to the... More

Small, affordable, attached to a dumpy motel, in a tourist town, on the American side of the Falls. These are not the ingredients for good meal. And yet... This place is incredible. The food is fabulously delicious, all the flavors well thought out and well balanced, beautiful on the plate and served fresh from the kitchen. This looks like a... More

Villella's was recommended by our hotel staff. They recommended the fried rice balls as an appetizer and also recommended their desserts. The food did not disappoint. Their fried rice rolls were delicious and our meals were all very good. Where our visit did not meet our expectations was from the service we received. When asked what the soup de jur... More
