Went for Easter Brunch - would
Went for Easter Brunch - would have liked the option of coffee or champagne rather than just champagne since only one in our party drinks alcohol. Wished there were more vegetarian options or would have liked to order from the regular Sunday Brunch menu. Large party made restaurant very noisy - happy we were almost finished when they arrived!

Staff was professional and friendly. Food was delicious. I had chicken and my husband had the veal. Price is reasonable for all the food that is served. Bread is served warm...Yummy!

A pleasant surprise, Great ambiance
Villa D'Este was a pleasant surprise. From reading reviews on other sites, I had very low expectations, but after heading there with my family over the weekend, I'm convinced this is a solid home-style Italian restaurant. It is family owned and operated, so you can't expect the food to be spot on every single time. But, the decor in the room, the service are all things you would expect from a family owned business. The menu items are the same every night; with exception to a nightly special which changes.
For the price, service and selection of Italian cuisine items, I considered this between average and above average.

I appreciate the host person, very kind and always reviewing the service. Chicken was good although I would like a little bigger portion. Coffee was great. Good for the price. Thank you!

We made a last minute Mother's Day dinner reservation for 6:00 for a party of 10. We had never been to this place before. They were able to accommodate us without problem. Food and service were excellent. We would like to go back again and try their standard menu.

I made a reservation online at noon for a party of 8 for a 5:15pm same day meal. We arrived an hour early and they seated us right away without a problem. The owner was very gracious and checked in us periodically. The staff was very responsive and helpful throughout the meal. The food was very good and the ambience was nice and subdued. I would recommend this place for large groups.

Great place for a quiet dinner
We had a very positive experience at Villa D'Este. The food was delicious and the service was great. It was very quiet and we sat next to the window. Overall -- a wonderful time. Thank you, Villa D'Este !

This Italian restaurant has been around for many years. The art deco interior is fun and they have live dinner music on weekends.
Great for couples or groups with a good menu and wine list.

Quiet and Relaxed Atmosphere
We celebrated a family birthday celebration here on a Sunday evening. The service was friendly and the atmosphere was quiet and relaxing. We could easily have conversations without the need to shout or strain to hear.

Family Italian Dining At It's Best
One of the few remaining Italian restaurants where you can get a full course meal of anti-pasta, soup, salad, pasta, entrée, dessert, and coffee -- all for around $20. The food is excellent and the owner is extremely welcoming. I highly recommend Villa d-Este for anyone who wants to experience family Italian dinners as they were experienced in the 50's and 60's in an art deco setting. Be sure to ask Ramon, the owner and bartender, for recommendations of a fine Chianti, as he stocks a great selection.

Celebrated a birthday here on a Sunday evening. The restaurant was not very crowded but that was ok by me. The service was very
good. The waiter and his assistant were very attentive --even providing my 2 vegetarian children with meatless pasta. The ambiance was nice. i imagine that when they have the piano player it is even better. The food was great--all four courses. Drinks were very reasonable as well. All in all, it was a lovely evening!

Good food, great music, and parking
Stopped in to this restaurant in the neighborhood for Sunday night dinner - and found a wonderful live jazz group (Charged Particles) there too! Good food at a very reasonable price, great music, a retro setting in the neighborhood - and easy parking! A winning combination.

This time we enjoyed a delicious brunch which started off with champagne. The owner's granddaughter served us, took our order and was very nice. This is a wonderful family owned and run restaurant. I have been dining here for the past 30+ years and have enjoyed everything. When you dine here you fee like we werel part of the family.
There omelettes are delicious and they are very generous.
