“It's Small - But Great !”
Reviewed July 25, 2014

Villa Roma is a small and cozy restaurant, and the homemade food is outstanding. We enjoyed the Veal Parmesan and Eggplant Parmesan - both of which were incredible and perhaps the best veal and eggplant that we've ever had. Both melted in our mouths. Portions are gigantic. We ate at the bar which is our favorite location in any restaurant. Jason the bartender was great - he makes an excellent drink. Can't wait to return and try other menu items.

“Small, Intimate, and Delicious (and not for kids)”
Reviewed July 4, 2014

There are twelve tables in Villa Roma plus three or four taller bar tables, so don't be surprised if you have to wait. Hint: get there early. While I usually like to see restaurants that accommodate children (since I have twin grandchildren who frequently dine with us), it was nice to have a private, quiet meal with my wife that was also delicious--about as good as Italian food can be. (There is a sign on the outside that politely warns about Villa Roma not having children's seating or a menu.) The few tables are so close that you may have other diners much closer than usual, but, hey, you might make some new friends. The restaurant has a nice wine list and a full bar. Deserts are good--I had a Captain Morgan chocolate cake which I would get again. The restaurant is in an old small Cape house--not so lovely on the outside but nicely done in the interior. Our older server was wonderful. I hope to return next time we are out on the Cape.

“A worthwhile return”
Reviewed June 22, 2014

Last year four of us had dinner at the Villa Roma restaurant for the first time and the experience was so positive that we returned again this year. This year the result was similar. Our waitress was attentive and helpful. The meals were excellent: pasta with meatballs, sausage and peppers, and two had Bolognese over Capellini. It really was eight meals because each of us had enough leftovers to take home for another meal. This year our stay on the Cape was before the busy summer season and, arriving a little after 6:30PM, there were still a couple of available tables. Last year, near the end of the summer, we arrived about the same time and had to wait almost an hour before a table became available.
If you’re looking for delicious Italian food, you won’t go wrong with Villa Roma.

“Very Good Food and Service”
Reviewed June 12, 2014

We try to get to the Villa Roma at least once a month. It is very good Italian food and the portions are quite large. My wife usually gets the Chicken Piccata and says it one of the best she has had. She likes it because it is not thick and heavy with the sauce, but light and quite flavorful.

I either have the Lasagna or the Chicken parm, but usually end up getting the Lasagna, only because it is one of the best I have had. It is so good I usually end up eating the whole thing and should be taking some home. It is a huge portion, trust me.

The service is terrific and friendly every time we go and the atmosphere is well, quaint considering it is an old, converted home. We go early to avoid the "rush" and having to wait. They must be doing something right because they are always busy.

If you go between Sunday and Thursday (no holidays), be sure to print out the $5 off coupon for each entree. You can find it on their website.
