Diner Reviews
  • "The monthly cabaret show is great. My friends and I will be back on Mondays. The food is so so. But what do you want for $20..."

  • "The service was great and excellent selection of food which can be ordered ala carte or complete dinner. Also, I have requested a round table for 6 which was great for us, this way we can chat with everyone. The price is very reasonable for seniors who are on fixed income and wished to go out once in awhile for fine dining or for a special occasion. Highly recommend this restaurant for young or old adults and also, families with kids."

  • "We had never been to Villa D' Este and decided to try it for Sunday brunch. We had a great time. Brunch includes a complimentary glass of sparkling wine. The restaurant has typical brunch entrees, and everything we tried was good. The décor is charming. Restaurant looks out onto a brick walkway bordered with flowers. Service was great. We will go back soon."

  • "I rarely write bad reviews but this meal was so disappointing for my entire family, that I feel obligated to warn others. I should not have ignored the bad reviews on YELP."

  • "very romantic place for valetime day dinner or anytime.special dinner menu for valetime.dInner, I had prime rib which was large and we also had chicken both very good.also had wine merlot from the bar.staff and owner very nice service was fast and we sat were we wanted."

  • "This was a very bad dining experience, especially for a supposedly special day (Valentine's Day). The prime rib prix fixe menu was soooo bad... 25% fat, rare instead of medium, and the side dish of pasta was like one prepared out of a bottle. Service was unbelievably slow, with too much wait time in bringing each course to the the table, and our agony was prolonged as it took a long time for our bill to be brought to us. Never again..."

  • "Villa d'Este is a great spot to experience old style full Italian dinners in an art deco dining room, with anti-pasta, soup, salad, pasta, entre, dessert, and coffee, all for around $19 to $25. There are many entre choices including fish, beef, veal, chicken, and pasta. Ala carte is also offered. The service is friendly and attentive and the place attracts many regulars. There is a full bar separated from the dining area. Check for nights when they offer live piano entertainment to accompany dinner. We eat here often and always have a good meal and a fun time."

  • "The atmosphere in this restaurant is a flashback to times gone by! The ornate details of the 1928 building have been retained, and are a hoot!"
