    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!

    Worth a 125 mile drive

    First spaghetti and meat balls you can get any where so this is not the place if that's your taste. So let's start with the apps - fried asparagus, sauteed escarole or spinach, Mussels in red or white gravy - Main courses Veal Chop to die for, Lobster Francaise(sp?), and Chicken Sicilian just to name a few of our favorites; however the menu selection goes beyond these delights. Overall a great dining experience. Top it all off with a good Chianti and you have an meal to remember..

    It's Not Ralph's

    Stopped in Ralph's (my favorite) on a whim without a reservation. They were packed. My husband suggested VDR since he had been there before. We were seated right away on a Saturday night. The dining room was really bright and had zero atmosphere. (I love Ralph's upstairs dining room) They had no wine list and paper menu's with out any entree descriptions!! The waitress seemed "put off" when I asked about the different veal dishes that I was not familiar with. I did order a veal dish. It came with nothing. Just veal on a plate, so I ordered a side of spaghetti. (My dinner was good.) We started with mussels in red which were good. My husbands said his entree was very good. Overall, VDR was just OK.

Cash and checks only and not fancy but very inviting and the food was awesome! We will be back ! If you are in Little Italy try this place! Thanks Honey for your awesome service and making us laugh! :)

    Phenomenal food!

    The food is out of this world! I highly recommend the shrimp scampi appetizer and the baked rigatoni. It's just amazing. Some people wrote that it's bad service. Let me explain something. The waitresses are old school Italian ladies. If you aren't used to it, it might be weird, but that's just how it is.

    Save Your Money

    I was here MANY years ago and went again a few months ago hoping that the food had improved over the years.......forget it. The food is nothing to talk about and WAY overpriced for what you get and the flavor. Do yourself a favor, go somewhere else to get good food that's about the same price or a few dollars more.

    Best Chicken Parm in Philadelphia

    Hands down, Villa di Roma has the best Chicken Parm and Sauce in the Philadelphia area! My wife and I first visited the restaurant back in July and have been back at least once every two weeks since! Ok, so the atmosphere is a little dull and outdated. And the menus are paper; the waitresses seem to have a bit of an attitude. But it's about the food here, people! And the waitresses, my wife and I have grown to adore them! They greet us by our names with a huge welcoming smile when we walk in. They really make us feel like we're at home! If youre all about the food, this is the place for you!
