I guess here they think pasta is the only Italian food that need to be served. My 7 year old child can make pasta, so nothing special. We were invited to dine here. We were with 6 people. It was busy, but we were seated quickly. The chicken and sausage is simply bad. Who prepares chicken in a batter and thereafter place it on a plate with a lot of juices? Not me and not a real Italian. This made the taste so bad. I had flower in my mouth. The others were not much better. Pizza was not touched, because it was very hard. The pasta was "so-so" and nothing special.
The service. It seems there are some frequent visitors and the staff was talking to them all the time, not paying attention to others. Guess that's what they call: "Family restaurant"? Not my family and regretfully I cannot recommend this place. The quality is bad, the quantity is huge. If it would have any taste, this could be a pleasant place, but now it is not.

A friend of us recommended this place and told us it was amazing and authentic. Well, I don't know if they were having an off day or what happened, but I was only able to take one bite and my husband 2. He had the meatball parm and I had the chicken. The tomato sauce tasted like they had microwaved a can of cheap tomato sauce and just poured it over the food. The waitress didn't really care that we didn't eat the food and left so fast. As we were leaving a very nice guy, I'm guessing he was the manager, asked us if everything was ok, at that point we just thanked him and left super hungry and with a stomachache. Would not recommend it.

The people are friendly when you walk in they greet you and if it's not a full house they seat you as soon as you come in. The food is always amazing from their pizza to their dinners. i have eaten there several times and the food is always amazingly delecious and they give very large servings.

My wife and I have been going here for years, place doesn't look like much from the outside but the food and hospitality inside are fabulous. They have very good prices especially on their lunch specials and pizza specials, their dinner menu is also priced resonably. We were intorduced to this place by my wife's friend and I don't mind telling you that I was skeptical at first but was soon to be blown away. New Owner George has just made it better with his refinements, he kept all that was good about La Villetta and improved on it . Well done George.

This place have been serving the area for so long, but recently changed ownership. The food is still good, and the new management seems very friendly and anxious to please. Several times I've enjoyed the spaghetti with white clam sauce- the clams are consistently juicy and fresh and still in the shells. The cavatelli with broccoli and chicken is usually very good, but last time was a little dry- but worth trying again. We've not been thrilled with the pizza, but we are spoiled. We recommend the ravioli or the veal parm. For a meal before the movie, this sure beats Applebees.
