Villa di Roma

Went to Philly with family. Wanted to experience the Italian Market. Parked in front of Villa and decided to give it a try. The garlic bread was melt in your mouth. The parm cheese was some of the best we have had. We ordered spaghetti and meatballs. Both the gravy and meatballs were mouth watering and we loved each bite!! We all agreed that the meatballs were the best we have had and we have traveled all over. We were all hungry and love Italian but it was really that good. We were there at lunch on Good Friday and were seated right away. The only surprise was that it was a cash only restaurant and I did not notice this as we entered. Luckily we had cash. We kicked ourselves all the way home for not buying some meatballs and sauce. They have them chilled and ready to grab as a take out item by the bar area. Definitely make the Villa a stop when you are in the area, you will NOT be disappointed.

Here in Philly for a conference and wanted to go where the "locals" go. Waitress seemed bored at first but warmed up as the meal progressed. Clams Casino were excellent! Meatballs were OK but had lots of filler in them. "Gravy" or sauce as I call it was better than most but not like homemade. When we asked them to call a cab, bartender was on the phone and didn't acknowledge that he had called or if he was going to. Finally went outside and hailed a cab. Overall, I think it was a good meal. Decor and atmosphere are a little tired.

Went on a Sunday evening..early. Place was not busy. Initial drinks came quickly as did the food. Took forever to get a refill on a glass of wine..twice. Get a carafe if you go. Food was excellent although a bit pricey ..it is only pasta. Wanted angel hair only have linguinne. Meatballs are first class. All in all it is a good Italian meal right in the middle of the Italian Market. This would be a great stop to finish a walk through the market.

This is the best Italian Restaurant in Philadelphia! I love the family oriented atmosphere and the veal is to die for! Friendly staff with an old fashioned authentic Italian style atmosphere! Even the bread is excellent! Delicious food all around.

Disregard any negative feedback you have read. The food there was excellent authentic italian cuisine. The staff was friendly and attentive and everything there was about food and good conversation. This is not chain restaurant italian. It was real italian food and it was awesome !!! Great desserts and coffee too !!
