While in Conroe for a show at the Crighton Theater, we walked up to Villa Italia for a bite. We were pleasantly surprised, to say the least! I had the veal special, which was delicious. The veal was tender, as was the shrimp - in a delicious cream sauce. My husband had the Veal Parmigiana, which he also enjoyed thoroughly.... More

Our first visit to Villa Italia was marred by a new, inexperienced waitress who apparently didn't turn in our order. Main course was finally put in front of us 55 minutes after arrival time. Owner was clearly upset and apologized repeatedly. With the exception of tasteless salad dressing, the food was outstanding and served hot from the stove--which doesn't usually... More

Service was more than adequate, especially compared to some of the prior reviews. Dinner was inconsistent. Escargot appetizer was good, albeit different, as the shells were missing( my wife's favorite part!) The salad was pedestrian but featured a nicely flavored , light dressing. We both ordered the daily specials & 1 of 2 were good. My wife's filet had a... More

I was here before but at this time I invited to my fiancé and he said that was impress about the place and food ... He really loved it and he said that is the best restaurant in Conroe and so different of the rest. They play a piano on lunch time ¡amazing!

I visited Jose’s Villa Italia with my wife on 2/13/2016 for a Valentine’s weekend dinner, prior to seeing a show at The Crighton Theatre. I chose this restaurant because it appeared to be the only (or one of only a few) fine dining options in Conroe. The name (Jose’s Villa Italia) gave me some pause, but the TripAdvisor reviews and...

We've been meaning to come here for a while and were finally able to make it in, we were not disappointed! I like trying the basic dishes first to see if they have good sauce etc. so we got the spaghetti and meatballs and the lasagna. Their items are made from scratch and you can tell, both of our dishes... More

Jose's Villa Italia? Come on! Food was not that good. We ordered fried calamari which arrived in small pieces...so small that you all you could really taste was the batter. I ordered a Veal with Shrimp and white wine sauce. I got some thin veal strips in Alfredo sauce with some pasta and a few boiled shrimp thrown in. I... More

This is a small family restaurant across the street from the courthouse in Conroe, Texas. It is a converted house with each room cozy with antiques and art. The veal Dama Bianca is exceptional. Tender and covered with sautéed mushrooms in a brandy cream sauce. For starter try the calamari fritti with the marina sauce for dipping. Their house chianti... More
