“Italian Cooking Like Mama Used to Make”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2011

Villa Vespa, in Lake Placid, NY, used to be a mouth-watering Italian restaurant not too many years ago. Now it's a mouth-watering Italian takeout restaurant. Everything is prepared from scratch the old-fashioned way. Like Mama used to make. Kim Vespa and crew are superb cooks and warm-hearted people. Check it out!

“Great people, great pasta!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2011

Villa Vespa is a great place to pick up tasty, home-made, authentic italian food (delicious pasta, lasagne, eggplant parmesan, and soups!) that have been chilled or frozen for an easy meal later in the day/week. If you're staying in or around Lake Placid (and you have a kitchen for re-heating of food) there's no better place to go for an easy, delicious family meal.

“Great Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2011

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

“Get the lasagna or meat sauce, skip the meatballs”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2011

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 fed me all summer long! Love Italian - great take out!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2011

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!.
