We had a reservation for 7:30. Arrived on time and were seated and no one came near our table again. No water , no drinks, no menu. I tried to catch the servers eye but was totally ignored. After 25 min we got up and left and still received no attention. It was a Wed nite and the place was... More

They accommodated over 40 people for a surprise Birthday party and did not disappoint. Both the food and service were excellent. I would certainly recommend this restaurant. They did an incredible job.

We have been going to La Villetta for many years, and it the only restaurant I can say is down to earth with real good Italian food. It is small but with a real trattoria feel. The service is fantastic and the food is just great. The quality through the years has not changed! We will always go back there!

Whenever I want pasta I go here because it is consistently good. Nice quite restaurant and it easily accommodates just a few friends hanging out, or a large group. Authentic dishes from antipasto to mains, and bottles of wine are reasonably priced. Of course than there is expresso at the end of the dinner. I bet you can get grappa... More

I love that there is an option on eating with or without a TV. We chose without. Service was prompt. The room was pleasant. We enjoyed our dinners. These weren't the kind of meals you rave about. To me, they are a tad off brilliant. For the price, just slightly underperformed. Having said that, they were tasty and serving sizes... More

The service was pleasant, the restaurant was bright, the food was average or below. We had muscles and prawns for appies - they were excellent. The fresh baked bread that they brought to the table was also excellent. I ordered the gnucci in meat sauce and it had no flavour - I had to do something I never do: salt... More

Ordered one of my favorite dishes that I have not eaten in some years. Oso Buco. The one half of a very small roasted potato was barely warm, the tomato sauce which covered the two very small veal shanks was overpowering. The veal shanks themselves were very small not much meat on them and again the meat was barely warm.... More

I recently had dinner at this restaurant with family members. The service was friendly and generally pretty good, although we waited a long time to receive our bill. The ambiance was pleasant although I was surprised to see a large screen television on the wall. You don’t typically expect to see that except in sports bars, etc. Our meals were... More

My wife and I treated a girl friend to dinner at La Villetta on November 22nd. Although the restaurant is quite family orientated, our drinks, food and service were all "first class". Long time owner, Teo, dropped by to say "hello" as it had been years since we last paid a visit. We will return - Peter & Ann.
