    Love my Villa

    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!

    What a waitress!!

    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.

    Sauce to die for

    Delicious clams and mussels. The villa salad is also exceptional.

    Poor Service And Food, Overpriced

    So, listen - I understand that every restaurant can't be a gourmet extravaganza. I also understand that Italian food sometimes is best if you "keep it to the basics." But come on... First off, the service here sucks. The whole old-fashioned South Philly 'tude here rings especially true. Very rude, hardly look at you, and they treat you like they're doing you a favor when they come to the table. The bar looks like it hasn't been re-done in 40 years, and the liquor/wine/beer selections available were so sparse, it's hard to believe anyone drinks here (not to mention the awkward setup next to the dining room). I got the Linguine and Clams in white sauce. What came out was clearly canned clams, Acme-style pasta, and a plate full of soupy mess, which I guess was white sauce. Moreover, we were sat next to a dumb-waiter/elevator type of thing which kept jamming up, so our entire dinner was serenaded with the sounds of clanging plates and cursing back-of-the-house help. Oh, and we got wine, which clearly had been open for many, many moons. Which would've been bad, except that we paid an arm and a leg for the entire experience. All in all, I'd tell random strangers on the street NOT to go into this place. Go down the street to Monsu or, if you want classic pasta and gravy cuisine, to stick to Dante and Luigi.

    Great Food

    Stopped in for very late lunch on a weekday with the place a but empty. Waitress very courteous and helpful with menu. The fried asparagus appetizer was simply the best we have ever had, crispy, buttery and full of flavor. Same with my veal and wife's lobster franchais, she loved it. While a little pricy for the late lunch the experience overall was a 5.0 and we will certainly be going back!

    Laughing

    Live in the neighborhood and guess pre-baby we never paid attention to prices. What a shame they charge outrageous prices for simple things that have caused this local couple to vow to never return. $4 for a 12oz cola, $7 for house poured Chianti. Seriously? And the food is wonderful - such a shame!
