    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!

    It's Villa

    Ive been eating at Villa for over 35 years. The people that reviewed the waitresses as being "this or that" don't understand South Philly. That's what its suppose to be! Basil, Frankie and Pip are the best, they learned from Dominick, may he rest in peace. Go, eat and enjoy true south Philly Italian!

    Dinner was Ok

    Met friends in Philly after a day of touring the city. Our friends said that this place was great as I asked for somewhere casual. I did not want to get dressed up. It is not a fancy place but it was definitely busy. We went and were seated without too much of a wait. The menus are paper and while there were no descriptions of the dishes, the waitress did offer explanations. My friends ordered a salad to share that never arrived and overall the food was ok. I might try them again if I am in that neighborhood but I am not sure I would go out of my way to eat there. Overall my experience here was average.

    not worth it

    Went to dinner with my friend, the decor is old, my waitress seemed annoyed by our questions, the food was over priced and the entrees came with nothing but 3 pieces of asparagus. The menu said you could get spaghetti on the side for 3 dollars extra, but only in a red sauce. Are you kidding me, you can't add some olive oil and garlic? And only spaghetti, no capellini? Our eight dollar salad had russian dressing that tasted like it came from a bottle. I would never go back, there are so many other restaurants cheaper and have a better atmosphere and better tasting food. I felt like I was so ripped off when I left.

    Definitely a +++++! Worth the trip.

    We decided on VDR from a friends recommendation and it didn't disappoint. Who cares about fancy decorations when the food and service are tops. You can't get any closer to the source than in the Italian Market. We shared are dishes family style and the asparagus appetizer was so good I could of eaten it as a main dish! This will definitely be one of our top choices whenever we get back to Philly.

    Warning....Not worth it!!

    Out for my wife's B-Day and decided to stop in. We decided to eat at the bar and did not expect the best service but WOW! Bartender seemed indifferent, and able to carry out only one task at a time. Water took two promptings to arrive and the place only had 5 people at the bar including us. The villa salad was drenched in store-bought salad dressing. The ravioli was overcooked to the point of waterlogged...if it was homemade I know it can not be al dente...but this was mushy. The sauce was OK, the meatballs....let's just say there are two places in center city with better meatballs...one place with "sandwich board" in the name of the restaurant and the other with "meatball" in the name. For two glasses of house wine, one mixed cocktail, one entree salad, and one pasta entree...total $50....passs!
