We live in the Lake George Area and have been looking for a GREAT Italian meal. We Found it! From the appetizers thru dessert it was the best we had. The service was impeccable as well. The menu also featured fantastic entrees beside Italian. If you live in the area or are visiting you MUST try this restaurant.

After finally surrendering to Villa Napoli's ubiquitous advertising within the local news scene, we succumbed on a Sunday in August to experience what we were hoping would be thoughtful, delicious, daring italian food in Bolton. We were greeted on arrival by the owner, who has a very welcoming and folky vibe. Seated immediately, without fanfare, in a large, open dining room, we were surprisingly comfortable smack in the middle of the room. Our server arrived within several minutes of seating and was a pleasant young man with a knowledge of the menu at an impressive level. Grea start to what was ultimately, a very mediocre, predictable and expensive meal. The food we ordered (an eggplant parm kind of thing with 4 cheeses and a sprinkling of spinach, a sausage on bread appetizer, side of broccolini and a very boring chicken entree) were all presented nicely, but lacked any interesting flavors and all could've been served much warmer. A very basic, anyone can do it medley of italian food smothered in cheeses and uninspired sauces was the result of this meal. Nothing terrible, just lots of typical fare on the hi end of the price scale. Our dinner for 2 with 2 drinks each, tax & tips approached $130 and for that tariff, I would expect a more interesting and flavorful dining experience.

This is one of our favorite restaurants in the region. We have dined here twice this summer. Just last night we had delicious grilled salmon over greens, veal parmigiana, and a calamari appetizer. The food is top notch and prices are reasonable. The staff is welcoming, friendly, attentive and accommodating. The atmosphere is "adirondack chic with a hint of Italy". Overall this is a great value and a nice alternative to the hustle/bustle of Lake George Village and Bolton Landing during the high season.

We dined at Villa Napoli last year, and the food was good, presentation was nice on their antipasto. However, we were there on Saturday, and I ordered the gnocchi, first let me say I took 6 bites and the dish was empty. The sauce tasted like they just used tomatoe paste and basile. The color was off and so was the taste! Its not that hard to saute garlic and oil then throw in the tomatoes??? not paste! yuck. Anyway, never again! My husband has the lasagna the portion size was ok, the taste was just ok. I don't know if it was an "off night" but please don't use just tomatoe paste!
