I've been to Villa di Roma twice and will be going again this evening to celebrate my wife's 60th birthday. Our 4 sons are coming in from Florida and we couldn't think of a better, more authentic, place for a good, old fashioned Italian feast, than Villa di Roma's. Family run, waitresses that have been with the restaurant for years, a bar with true Philly fans and a bartender that loves what he does -- it doesn't get any better. And, did I mention, the food's great -- and don't forget to finish it off with a canoli from nearby 1904 bakery, Isgros. Better order it when you sit down, though, since they sometimes run out.

I remember having lunch there with a buddy of mine. As we drove back to Jersey we thought about what we were gonna do at night. We decided to come back and have dinner too. I've taken countless people there and everyone has loved it. People complain about the prices... really? I could understand if the portions were small but they're not. The food is all good, everyone's friendly, it's a relaxed atmosphere and I can't wait to go back again. My only complaint is I need more elbow room at the bar on a busy night. Too bad it's a 45 minute drive.

My family and I were in town for a graduation. We went down to the Market during the Italian Festival, and decided to have lunch here. 10 of us had a variety of dishes, from the mussels, to the meatball subs, to the eggplant parm and sausage and peppers. Everything was delish! Great service, and hope to be back.

Reading reviews, a friend and I decided to go to Villa di Roma. When I walked in I immediately remembered, I ate here about ten years ago. Yep, -it's "Souf Phillwyy". But the prices? They come from Society Hill. Really. Pasta with gravy for $14,99? Meatballs are extra? Didn't hate it but don't recommend it and this time, I'll remember the place and avoid it.

My first trip to Philadelphia and I'm looking around thinking where is all the good stuff? I wanted the local, the unique, and the whole experience! Stumbling upon this restaurant was the best part of my trip. Walking down 9th street seeing all the bakeries and butchers was awesome and then my friend and I walked into Villa di Roma. The staff? Incredible, lovely, warm, and FAMILY. The food? To die for. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who appreciates authentic Italian food.

I have been to this restaurant several times and have never been disappointed. The food is great. Pasta cooked to perfection and for the first in my life, I never had to add seasoning to an Italian dish. I will continue to eat here as long as they don't stop what they are doing. I love this place!

Went for dinner Saturday night. 16 of us and everyone enjoyed their dinners...especially the asparagus and the mussels. Our waitress was Theresa..she was fantastic....very helpful and patient. The owners came to say hello...nice touch. All and all a great experience. We will go back again and again and again.
