    Everything was 5 stars. Except for the dinning area. They squeezed to many tables together. Making it hard to maneuver around the tables. Even the staff seemed to have problems moving around. I understand about maximizing. But this was way over maximizing. The handicapp will and did have a hard time moving around. Because there were to many tables in a small area. The noise level was to high. It made it difficult to have a pleasant conversation with the person I was with.

    I love the familiar, yet distinguished, atmosphere this restaurant evokes. The wine flowed, multiple appetizers with prosciutto- the menu varied enough to satisfy each palate. So delicious we each ordered a separate dessert. Recommendations: pear gorgonzola appetizer, the pear or avocado salads, linguini carbonara, and the lemoncello cake. From Sergio's greeting to final digestif...another fabulous meal.

    A true Italian gem in the center of Tulsa, of all places. Both the linquine, with house sauce, and the risotto were al dente. I had the osso buco from wild boar shank; the preparation was delicious. An enjoyable evening!

    Dined on 8/15/2014
    Using opentable to make reservation online was convenient but had one HUGE downfall. After making dinner reservations for a party of four we get to the restaurant and find out we're sitting at a table that is seated for 8 due to not having enough tables. This will be avoided next time by calling the restaraunt directly to make reservations so that both couples can seat properly. Thanks, but no thanks, opentable.....

    We have dined at Villa Ravenna many times and always find it to be exceptionally good. Menu choices, wait staff, service and ambiance are always spot on. The occasional couple will bring small children in, which would be fine if they were well behaved, but sometimes they detract from the romantic feel of it. Other than that, we can find no fault with VR. Delicious!

    My husband and I made reservations here for our birthday (we share the same birthday). We had never been here before, so we were looking forward to the experience. The food was wonderful. However, after being served our appetizer, my husband looked upset. He leaned over and told me that the wait staff had bumped into his arm and side walking by about 3 or 4 times and never said "excuse me" or "I'm sorry" and told us we wouldn't be back. I was extremely disappointed in this level of service, and it ruined our birthday. We will not be back.

    I tried the roasted peers with gorgonzola and they were excellent. The homemade gnocchi was soft and tasted like potatoes (rather than flour), just like they are supposed to. The white sauce was tasty, but very rich. The tiramisu was great. The portions were not oversized, which I always appreciate. Nice environment, good service. My other three guests also liked it a lot. We intend to return.

    Villa Ravenna offers what no conglomerate can in terms of quality, style, and uniqueness. The food quality is with a taste and presentation which bursts of detail and care from a kitchen truly attempting to share with each item. The atmosphere is quaint but extremely inviting produced by a man in the front of house, owner and visionary, who truely cares for each individual's experience with a genuine concern for hospitality. I leave this place with a feeling I have been offered a glimpse into a person's cultural upbringing through a dinning experience. One leaves not a restaurant, but an intimate glimpse into a man's charished memories of home.

    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.
