Well, perhaps we just got the JV team for the wait staff, but no matter, being ignored, having to ask for water 3 times, having the food arrive in shifts so that some are finished eating before the food arrives, and having your plate dropped in your lap while they are clearing, does not warrant a 4 or 5 star...

While visiting my 30ish nephews we stopped here for dinner. Had a bit of a wait but well worth it. The Napolitano pizza is DOC or made exactly like in Naples. Very thin crust baked in a super hot wood fired oven. The crust poofs up and everything is melted amd sizzly. Absolutely the best pizza i ever had. And... More

Yes, the pizza was fabulous - hey, it's NY. So was the spaghetti Vongole Bianco. But Dessert Calzone? Filled with sweet ricotta cheese and Nutella and powdered sugar on top??!!? It should be illegal it's so good.

We came to dinner here recently and had a pretty good experience. The bread they gave to us in the beginning was flavorful. Our appetizers were very good. Salads are very flavorful and not bland here! The shrimp parm had been cooked well as well as all the pasta. The chicken parm is a very good dish to get! It... More

A bustling friendly Brooklyn Pizzeria and Italian restaurant . We had the wood fired Martguerita pizza which was delicious but portions are huge! However, favorite of the night were the calamari all'Arrabbita-tossed in spicy marinara sauce . Definitely worth returning for alone!

The Vegetale is delicious and full of taste. One of the better vegetarian pizzas in NYC. Very fresh and high quality ingredients. The 'small' wood fired pizza is big enough for two people. A nice restaurant with a lot of space, nice staff and good service. Menu has a lot of options, more than the usual Italian restaurants. Nice background... More

As a tourist, I have not had many bad or even mediocre meals in NYC. There are so many restaurants that the bad ones seem to fail quickly. We visited La Villa yesterday. The 4 of us shared a really, really good Caesar salad with shaved Parmesan, and the perfect amount of dressing, a thin crust Magarita, and a thick... More

La Villa was my 14-year-old nephew's choice to celebrate his 8th grade graduation. I'm so glad my brother let him pick the restaurant!!!!The food here was amazing!!!! Everything was delicious!!! It was some of the best Italian food I've had outside of NYC's Little Italy! The Baked Clams Oreganata was SCRUMPTIOUS! We ordered a dozen for a party of 7... More
