Diner Reviews
  • "We have always enjoyed VR, but this meal was exceptional. Our waiter took time to describe each "featured" item not on the menu or the daily list of specials. We ordered both anti pasta and salad from that selection since they were sharing or family style for 4. Everyone enjoyed their entrees, whether something new or an old stand by."

  • "As a New York Italian, I did not expect to find good Italian food in Tulsa, but had enough steaks during my trip to the region and took chance. Villa Ravenna was outstanding. Our waiter, Jesse, stared the evening with a history of where the owners came from in Italy, how they made their way here, the type of food for which they are known, which was a really nice touch. My colleague and I each had the foot-long prawn special, and the prosciutto salad - both excellent. Al in all, a great night at an outstanding restaurant."

  • "I have always had a amazing visit to your restaurant. But this particular day wasn't as good. My son ordered soup and I ordered a simple pasta. It took forever for our lunch. A family came in that was obvious regular customers and they were completely served and were done with their meal before my son and I ever received a simple soup and pesto pasta. So I was disappointed. I don't relate well to favoritism. A good way to lose a new and valued customer. I just learned about your restaurant a month ago. And have already been there 5 times! And have brought new customers to you.. I will be back but I hope that doesn't happen again. Thank you. Terese Mullinax"

  • "My visit here was my first time to Villa Ravenna, and it won't be my last. It's the best Italian food I've had since I was in Italy itself. Our waiter recommended that my girlfriend upgrade her spaghetti bolognese to fettucini, and recommended I upgrade my fettucini alfredo to carbonara; both of these recommendations were spot on and an excellent idea. The tiramisu was legendary. The wait staff was attentive and all seemed very happy to be working there. I've been recommending this place to everyone!"

  • "First off, I want to single out our sever, Jerry. He did an outstanding job and provided some of the best service I've ever had. We shared the calamari appetizer which was tasty and not greasy. We both had a cup of the lobster soup (forgive me I forgot the exact name). It was creamy, a little sweet and went well with the garlic bread. My girlfriend had the black fettuccini w/shrimp, mussels, clams and calamari in an olive oil/garlic sauce. Very tasty! I had the veal Osso Bucco. The meat was incredibly tender, rich and flavorful. It was served with a creamy mushroom risotto. We paired with a bottle of Torro Sangiovese (forgive my spelling). Overall, it was one of the best meals I've had. We were truly impressed and will be back."

  • "Used to go here for years. One of the best Italian restaurants in town. Over the last four visits, the service level has progressively worsened up to yesterday. Yesterday's service was so bad, we will never go there again. While previously the prices were slightly above average, I felt like it was a steal with the excellent food and great service. Now, with the food quality slightly dropping and the atrocious service, I feel as if I am getting robbed. We have such good memories of the place that we have given it three chances. No more."

  • "My husband and I went to Villa Ravenna for dinner before going to 'Wicked' @ the PAC. It was our first trip there and was exactly what we were hoping for: Quiet, romantic, delicious. We ordered seasonal dates wrapped in prosciutto as an appetizer. Yum! We both had a soup, mine the creamy mushroom and his the one with lobster. (Which we both preferred). For an entrée he went with the classic lasagna which was great, filing, and inexpensive. I went with the 1/2 lb prawn with linguine which was delicious, but pretty expensive and somewhat awkward to eat. The linguine was simple but amazing! My favorite part of any meal is dessert and I wasn't disappointed with their amazing cannoli. Our server, Lee, was wonderful and we would return."

  • "We went for our anniversary and were not disappointed. The wild boar sausage appetizer was amazing. I had Yani's special which was clams, mussels and shrimp with linguini and red sauce. My wife had the best chicken parm she has had since we moved from NYC. We would eat there weekly if we didn't live in OKC."

  • "I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of food. I've been to Tulsa on business many times and am finally glad they have a real Italian restaurant. No reason to dine in any mediocre Italian chain restaurants. I enjoyed a good Cesar salad, excellent black fettuccine with perfectly cooked seafood. The creme brulee was also very good. One item that could be better would be the bread, but I am extremely hard to please when it comes to bread. "

  • "I feel like the food was over priced for the quality served. The presentation was just adequate. The Italian restaurant had run out of bread by the time we arrived at 7:30 PM which was a disappointment."

  • "My husband and I have always loved this restaurant for its delicious food. However, they are clearly understaffed. It was not our waiter's fault that the service was bad, but it would have been impossible for him to provide good service with the number of tables he was assigned to. We never got a 2nd glass of wine, my salad came out missing a couple of ingredients and we waited so long for our dessert that by the time they brought it out, it had clearly been sitting for awhile, as the bread pudding was cold and the ice cream was melted. Also they crammed too many tables in. The tables were so close together you couldn't walk through and it made it very noisy, ruining the quaint ambience the restaurant suggests."

  • "This is our second time to eat at Villa Ravenna and enjoyed it very much. Their menu is diverse as I had antelope for the first time and it was great. The food and service are very good. We will eat there again for sure :)."

  • "We read the reviews saying it was loud and when we arrived (5:30 pm) we were happily surprised - they had lovely Italian music playing quietly. It was perfect! Then loud piano playing began. My husband described it as a 3rd grade piano recital (nice if it your own child) - it echoed loudly and was enhanced by the speakers set up all around. Then the diners had to shout to be heard so the whole place was LOUD (and not in a FUN, VIBRANT way). We still give it 4 stars because the food was tremendous, the service awesome, the atmosphere physically was lovely. I hope they read the reviews and take into consideration what the diners say, because this restaurant could be perfect. It feels like a special place, but they need to get the mood right."

  • "I have been here with a friend at least four times and have been very pleased each time! I wish it were less noisy, it is difficult for me to hear the person with whom I am dining. That is my only criticism. I love the food and the service is excellent."

  • "Outstanding menu. I ordered the sea bass, which came with a seafood risotto containing clams, mussels, shrimp, and squid. The fish was cooked to perfection and had a very light, but very tasty crust. The risotto was the perfect texture and complex with all the additions. The waitstaff was very friendly and attentive, they got everything right. I was disappointed that the restaurant seated everyone (6 parties in all) in one corner, practically on top of each other. I did not understand their decision to do that as it is a small establishment and made to seem even more cramped with this arrangement. We had to listen to conversations at other tables and hear the specials over and over. It would have been nice to spread the diners around a bit."

  • "We had a party of seven on a Saturday night. The restaurant was packed and very noisy. Our service was slow, but the food was well worth the wait. The menu was extensive. We had several different selections at our table and all of them were wonderful. They accommodated gluten free and were knowledgable about selections. I would recommend reservations. We will deffinitely be going back."

  • "This is a wonderful neighborhood restaurant. One of a kind both in atmosphere and food. Perhaps the best Italian food I've ever had. The lemon cello martinis were marvelous as our waiter told us the restaurant makes it's own lemon cello. Service is wonderful and attentive without hovering. I only mentioned the noise level as our table was next to a large group of 20 or so. The decor is beautiful, but I wish the acoustics could be enhanced to absorb more noise. Nothing that would keep my away, that's for sure!"

  • "Our party had varying dishes at Villa Ravenna. Most were pretty good and some were just mediocre. My spaghetti and meatballs had meatballs that had the same texture and taste as the ones that we get frozen from the grocery store but the sauce was good. Since some of the other's dishes were good, I will try it again and get something else. Maybe they just ran out of meatballs....."

  • "VR provided good ambience and atmosphere. Staff was very knowledgeable about the menu, specials, wine paring recommendations as well as the interesting history of the family of this family owned restaurant (ask them about it!)/ . Food was prepared as ordered with great flavor. Only negative was that we were briefly unattended to by our waiter but, to be fair, he had received several tables at one time. Overall an excellent dining experience and would recommend for dates, special gatherings, friendly affair or a night out. Will return."

  • "I came with 7 friends to eat a pre-race pasta dinner the night before the Route 66 Marathon. We all ordered different items from the menu and everything was consistently fresh and delicious. The service was excellent. We loved the attention. :) Prices were very reasonable, given the quality of the food and service. I loved my pasta fagioli soup and lobster ravioli. All of my friends enjoyed their meals, too, and thanked me for organizing such a great dinner!"
