We were very surprised and very impressed with the food here. It started with the warm crusty bread to die for!! I shared caprese salad (big mistake..should have taken the entire portion). The mozzarella was freshly made...the tomatoes big and beefsteak supreme. For my main course I had the veal margarita. It was very well pounded, almost flat, with a... More

I live in Boca and have never eaten here before, but decided to try it. It was really great. My food was wonderful as was my husband's. Attentive service. I understand it is very busy during "snowbird season" so a reservation is a must. Tartuffe was excellent.

Wonderful, fabulous authentic Italian food, I love the homemade sausage and pepper appetizer. Claudio our waiter was very attentive and when he recommends the specials they are fantastic. They have a very nice wine list. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

This expensive Boca Italian eatery has been around for decades and needs some help. It's obvious from the lackluster bread served with pats of wrapped butter that one can find in a diner that this place needs help. The mains are served with broccoli and potatoes that no real Italian would insult a diner with. Time for a change.

Nice service and pretty decor. The portions are small and very expensive. Service was fine and valet parking available. We had saute calamari and hot peppers to start and they were okay. The entree was a special pasta that was really just lasagna and chicken Villetta and both disappointed. Wine list was good. Dessert, Ricotta cheesecake was okay but too... More

We arrived for our reservation a little early and were seated right away by the owner. We had a booth next to the bar in a quieter part of the restaurant. This really made the experience nice for an anniversary dinner. Service was good and the waiter informed us of the specials. The bread was fantastic!! Real Italian and Sicilian... More

This restaurant came highly recommended. We were a party of 4, and were all disappointed. The restaurant was dark and very noisy. The service felt rushed...wanted us to finish so they could seat another group. We did not order any liquor drinks...and we felt like the tables that did , got more attentive service. Food was fair.

Just dined last night. We hadn't been there in a few years, and were very pleased with our meal. My yellow tail snapper was wonderful, and so was my husband's veal. Will definitely return again soon. Our friends were also pleased.

Dining Italian Style is not just for sustenance, it"s the coming together of family & friends. At La Villetta, the meals prepared by Chef Maria are Old World recipes and her own creations prepared and served to her family and friends for over 25 years. From Caserta, Italy, she learned her culinary art under the tutelage of Chef Angelo Mirra. Maria with Angelo moved to Montreal, Canada via Basil, Switzerland where they worked as a team for eight years at the Hotel Simblone. In Montreal, the first of three 4-star restaurants opened and introduced Maria's style of Italian cuisine.

Under the management of Maria's son & daughter, these restaurants still serve the people of Montreal Casa Cacciatore.

In 1985 SALVATORE SELLITTO and MARIA COSTANZA opened Casa Cacciatore in Pompano Beach Florida. For 7 years their patrons from Boca Raton demanded they bring to Boca their real sense of Italian hospitality. CUCINA - RICERCATA E GENUINA BUON APPETITO
