Very small but quaint eatery. Food was very good! Family friendly. Get a reservation or go early/late - fills up quickly. Great service!

So saddened to see the decline in service and food quality at one of my favorite local restaurants. The restaurant was staffed by only the chef and 1 waiter and despite the fact that it was Monday night, the small restaurant was full and there were people waiting in the hallway. Thank goodness we called for reservations for our group... More

This is a very small place with eight tables two men running it. They weren't really cheerful. I can't say how the food is because we never got any. We did get our drinks and a salad that wasn't too fresh. The waiter came back after about twenty minutes and asked us what we had ordered. He lost our order... More

This little place is tucked unassumingly in a small motel. It has a classic menu - way advanced beyond "red sauce or white sauce" but comfort food all the same. For those who like to leave their cars parked, it is actually a pleasant walk from the cluster of Falls hotels. The entrees are somewhat conventional, but there is some... More

Nice quaint place and food was great. Portions were a little small for price but other than that service was excellent.

I feel we had a rather strange experience when we had dinner here. Other reviews sound quite favorable and our experience was anything but. Our waiter was abrupt, indifferent and seemed to have no sense of being hospitable. I ordered lasagne and was surprised when it was set in front of me as it looked like a bowl of tomato... More

Outstanding food! This Italiano family highly recommends Villella's. The bruchetta was perfect. We enjoyed the ravioli, the Alfredo and tiramisu.

Wow this place was a hidden gem that a friend told me about. Great authentic Italian food. Love the veal marmalade and stuffed hot peppers. Reasonably priced....will be back.

At first glance, you may find yourself questioning whether you should dine here or not. It's physically located inside a worn out, and inexpensive hotel. And, it's directly across from the hotel's indoor pool. And it has only seven tables. And it looks pretty stark. But, by all means enjoy dinner here, because you will be blown away at how... More

Small place, service okay. Waitress on phone texting instead of clearing table. Food was good, good portion size.
