My son has an allergy to wheat and it can be challenging to find places to eat when you are travelling. Villa Vespa had a variety of wheat-free pasta selections and they prepared a delicious meal for my son. The food was terrific and we went back every night we were in Lake Placid. Everyone there was extremely helpful and accommodating. I strongly recommend Villa Vespa

Lovely people and delicious food. Was nice to get prepared dinners to make in our hotel suite - affordable and romantic. Lasagna was some of the best i've ever had, same with the meat sauce. The meatballs were a mis-step - skip those but definitely give the rest of their menu a try. You won't be dissapointed!

Villa Vespa is a takeout establishment that previously was a very popular restaurant in Lake Placid. Fresh daily entrees; homemade sauces (by the jar as well) and fresh made pastas. Can't beat it for the price. They fed me July, August, September.....Love them!.

We were visiting Lake Placid and drove by the establishment. They have 2 little tables for eating there but their primary purpose is to have you take their delicious freshly prepared food home to heat up and eat. In our case, we took it back to our hotel and heated it in the microwave. The food was exceptionally good. I am gluten intolerant and they had a selection of gluten-free pastas and were happy to prepare a special linguine and meat sauce for me. The salad was as fresh as could be and delicious. Loved their homemade dressing. Will definitely go back.

We were not impressed with our restaurant experiences in Lake Placid, so we decided to try this place and finally had a good meal.

Unfortunately we didn't have a proper stove in our motel room, just 2 burners and a microwave. Because of this we missed out on what seemed to be some wonderful meals choices.

We opted for a mushroom sauce as well as cheese raviolis. Both tasted home made and were very good. We also tried a pestachio ice cream dessert with chocolate that was also very good.

Some people will be very satisfied with a jar of rago spaghetti sauce and scoff at paying 3x the price for a home made sauce. But we though it was worth it.
