The food was really good and reasonably priced. A bit too open between the kitchen and dining room, Good service. All in all, a good experience.

Proper food, cooked to order. Anywhere else it would just be another little Italian but here its a really find. Lovely restaurant, very small, great staff good, inexpensive food. What more can you ask for for in Niagara Falls?

The two of us came here for dinner with no reservations at about 20:30 on a Friday night. We were seated immediately. There were two other tables filled, and there five tables empty. This is small venue. The kitchen is visible from the dining area, and while there are table linens, this is not what one would call a fancy... More

Our party of 10 was thoroughly impressed with our meal. After spending the day walking all over we were too tired to go far for dinner. A semi-local recommended Villella's and he was spot on. The tiny restaurant filled quickly with only about 5 tables. The food was delicious - and it would have need awesome to hear the chef... More

We ate dinner at Villella's last week on our visit to Niagara Falls on a recommendation for our hotel. Villella's is small but quaint and the food was delicious. The chef was preparing the meals and then bringing your food out to your table as it was ready. It's located directly across the street from the now closed plant where... More

This is an old time Italian restaurant with great food. Very small, quiet and quaint inside. Nothing like American chain store Italian restaurants. The food is high quality and served fast. Wait staff are excellent. This is the real deal! Eat here and then you will know what an authentic Italian restaurant really is.

We tried Villella's based on the reviews and proximity to our accommodation. The place was full when we arrived, and waited briefly for the tables to be cleared. The restaurant is very small, with only about 10 tables or so. We had the ravioli and lasagna. My husband had a mushroom soup and I had the house salad. Everything was... More

We went close to 10:00pm on Thursday , walking distance from our hotel. It is small and located on the first floor of a hotel. If you want ambiance, it is not the place. But we were pleasantly surprised with the food. We had eggplant Parmesan as an appetizer which could also be had as an entree. All of our... More

The food was good and decently priced. The beautiful waitress Tamara is extremely generous and hard working. I did not have to ask once for an refill because she was on top of her job even with a full restaurant. She is great with communicating with customers and making them feel welcome. Her help Stefan was a very hard working... More

After the nightmare to find parking anywhere near here, we found ourselves glad we didn't give up on going in to eat. Although it was late, and we ordered a lot of food for just the two of us because everything sounded so good, the waitress and staff were very accommodating and friendly. We even got to meet the owner... More
