The first time I went there they had a special of fried brussels sprouts with a lemon caper aoli sauce for dipping. The appetizer was huge and enough for sharing two, although I ate it all myself because it was so scrumptious and I never had anything like it before. i've had it several times since this it's after and...

This place was recommended by a family member, and 6 of us had a great dinner. Small spot right off Shelburne Road. You can see the fresh pasta hanging in the open kitchen area in the back. We all indulged, and it was delicious. Also had calamari, which is not always done correctly - they did a nice job. Friendly... More

A discount coupon led us to La Villa, and we will definitely go back. The décor is pretty much classic Italian restaurant, and seating offers both tables and booths. We settled into a booth and ordered drinks - iced tea and a glass of Chianti. Wines by the glass run $6-$9, and I would say there was something for every... More

Stopped today for lunch at this fabulous bistro and had a fantastic meal. The Villa pizza and the pancetta and tomato sandwich was great. You need to try the crispy brussel sprouts were delicious. Gelato for dessert put this bistro over the top. Waitress was friendly as well!

Located in a small, somewhat sleepy strip center is this ordinary looking restaurant. But we've enjoyed excellent food and very good service. Casual. Try the Gorgonzola and Pear salad or the Eggplant Parmesan entree - both excellent!

I had the carbonara and my wife had the steak both were excellent. I hadn't been in 5 years and I was very happy with my meal. I would definitely return.

We've enjoyed this restaurant for several years and find it consistently very good. At our latest visit we found a new server that we remember from another Shelburne restaurant and he was great. I love the smoked mozzarella pasta and my wife is very fond of the mussels. Haven't tried the attached gelato shop.

Intimate, warm and inviting. A great menu, some good wine selections, and wonderful dessert options. There are several vegetarian options, and this makes it a great place for us, since my wife is on a medical diet. We went with friends, and we all enjoyed several different offerings. The dipping oil that accompanies the bread is a real treat. Mixed... More

Dined with friends for an easy in/easy out lunch. Squash soup was flavorful and creamy. Just right on a cold day! Others had chicken parmigiano sandwich and the Brussel sprouts appetizer. Cleaned plates all around. Service attentive and friendly.
