When the waitress threw the paper menus at us, I knew we were in trouble. The food was well below par and the waitress was not much better. I've had better Italian food just about everywhere else I've been. Very disappointing, no ambiance, the sauce was just okay, the pasta so so.

The asparagus appetizer is incredible. The eggplant parm is beyond delicious. It has a very old school south philly vibe, good pure cooking. I've been going here since I was a kid and I hate EVERYONE who comes to visit me there. It's excellent. No frills, perfect.

The food was fair. The Steamed Mussels in red sauce were great. The waitress we had was so rude and pushy. We will not return.

Villa has the BEST food and staff in the city. No one can come close to the clams in red! My 8 year old loves to dip her garlic bread, then she moves onto my Steak Villa or my husbands Veal Bella Buca. Everytime we leave, we look forward to the next time we can come back!

I chose the Villa for my birthday dinner because it was in the heart of the Italian market. What a huge disappointment. While the pasta and sauce was mediocre, the Italian sausage was rock hard and tasteless.

While researching Italian Restaurants in Phili I discovered "The Villa". I walked a great distance to get to this restaurant and every step was totally worth it. Other than my waitress being a little too quiet (the others were lively Italian mamas), the atmosphere is alive and happy. I had lasagne and vino di casa and both were very, very good. My plate was wiped clean when I left. I tip my hat to Pepe and staff.

I grew up in a very Italian neighborhood and can't go without my gravy. I have tried all the recipes of my friends parents growing up and they all have there own twist that stands out but Villa is one of a kind. My father brought me here as a child and I bring my family now to keep the tradition going. I would not go anywhere else for a classic pasta dish. You must try the Villa Salad and the chicken cacc. This is a must do in South Philly. Awesome.
