“Very convienent option for a family”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

Villa Vespa is great - the staff and owner could not be more friendly! The food is moderately priced and a very authentic. We will usually get the large family sized lasagna and freeze half, saving it for a later dinner option.
A Very Good rating because it is not a sit down restaurant. However, they will heat up your food and have it ready for pickup if you call ahead. Excellent lunch sized portions and easy accessibility right off Saranac Avenue.
Highly recommended!

“Friendly folk, great lasagna!”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

The women who helped us choose our dinner were sincerely nice and friendly... and passionate about their food! They guaranteed we would like our dinner and they were right.
I found it a bit on the pricey side for ready made take out but I guess that's Lake Placid for ya.
I would recommend to friends and return.

“Great Italian Food- To Go!”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

Have tried regular lasagna, seafood lasagna, homemade pasta sauce and more and it has all been great! The owner/chef is very friendly and the take-out setting is convenient. They have several options in the refrigerator and the freezer so you can choose to either heat something up for dinner that night or save it in the freezer for a day when you don't feel like cooking!

“Why eat out? Villa Vespa has it all!”
Reviewed November 17, 2012 via mobile

After hiking we hit Villa Vespa to stock up on a dinner we could warm up at our leisure at our accommodation. We were amazed and pleased at the variety of foods available to take out and warm up. Our group of four included two vegetarians, one pescatarian and a meat-lover and we were able to find delicious food to please everyone. Our list included spring rolls, empanadas, a fresh garden salad with balsamic vinaigrette, garlic bread with cheese, eggplant parmigiana, chicken parmigiana, seafood lasagna and sautéed spinach with garlic and mushrooms. The heating directions were included with every dish and we found everything to be absolutely delicious! It was lovely to have such tasty food without having to go out to a restaurant. Special kudos to our "front woman" who enthusiastically explained each dish and even offered taste tests. If you are looking for a delicious alternative to restaurant dining, you can't go wrong with Villa Vespa.

“Outstanding 'to go' food and ultra friendly owner”
Reviewed June 30, 2012

Wow! We felt like we were at a relative's house. The owner (a wonderful lady) helped us out and made sure we had everything needed for our dinner later that night. We tried the Lasagna and also the Ziti. That way we could split the two and enjoy the best of both. We were so impressed when we ate these dinners. Just superb Italian. The flavors, consistency, just everything was near perfection. We also tried the Creme Brulee for dessert and it was also superb! We rate this 'take out' food as high as possible. Thank you for the wonderful quality. Highly recommended!
