A word from Villetta Brentwood
Villetta is located in a charming historic building on the border of Santa Monica and Brentwood. Wrought iron gates open into a courtyard where the villettas within are being lovingly restored with careful attention paid to the original detailing. Built and occupied by renowned architect John Byers, this landmarked gem has previously been the home to two successful restaurants.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Another lovely night at Villetta, except for a group of 3 women patrons who were so noisy and inconsiderate that we had to move our table. It was a chilly night. We decided to dine in the bar. Unfortunately, 3 unattractive, very loud women came in about 15 minutes after we sat down for our meal. We could not stand it and moved back outside. Lynn our regular server was just as delightful as always. Franco, the bartender provided very interesting discussion of drinks and wine. The cuisine was spot on. A great time marred by some ugly guests, but we will, of course go back often."

  • "From the bruschetta amuse-bouche, to the funghi pizza starter to the linguine fruitti mare main (even to the bartender chatting in Italian), this place has the feel of a genuine Italian restaurant. Excellent food and good service."

  • "The ambiance was romantic, the service over the top wonderful... but the food left much to be desired, especially for the hefty prices we paid. The beet and endive salad came out without endives, and we had to search for the artichokes in the artichoke salad. The pasta bolognese was delicious--absolutely wonderful--but the ribs (recommended by the water) were tender but tasteless (served with bland mashed potatoes and boiled carrots). The wine was good, the waiter was amazingly sweet and attentive (giving us a free chocolate mousse for the lack of endives in my salad), and the manager attended to all the customers. The outdoor dining was beautiful, private, romantic, and fresh. If they work on the cuisine, I'll go back."

  • "Though we usually don't like dining out on Valentine's Day, Villetta changed that experience. There was nothing rushed about the evening, the food and service were outstanding. We love this restaurant."

  • "Our evening at Villetta was wonderful. We had a fabulous server named Pietro, and the maitre d' was most accommodating to our wishes for a private area where the ten of us could wander around before dinner and enjoy the room after dinner too. The food was spectacular. It was a lovely New Year's Eve. Many thanks to the staff at Villetta."

  • "Everything seemed to be overpriced. The wine per glass was outrageous. We didn't feel that we got value for our money. Very attentive staff and nice ambiance but it didn't measure up. Definitely won't be returning there."

  • "The service and food were excellent. The last time that I dined at Villetta it was for a Girls Night Out Christmas event and the staff went out of their way to make sure it was an enjoyable night, even helping us carry in our gift bags!"

  • "My husband, mother and I dined here for my birthday. It was delicious food and excellent service. The chef sent out a little appetizer as soon as we sat down. We love when restaurants do that! Such a nice touch! The owner is there to greet you with a smile when you walk in. He is buzzing around the restaurant to be sure everyone is happy. He knows the business and I believe this is a neighborhood restaurant that will be here to stay."

  • "We had a wonderful time. Giorgio was so patient and kind in explaining the specials and wine. He allowed us to "taste" before deciding on our vino! The attention to detail and personal attention was outstanding. The ambience incredible as we were set right before a gorgeous burning fire! I would say this is one of the BEST places I have ever been. The food, wine and service! Total 10! The squash ravioli was a melt in your mouth....delight! Best!"

  • "This restaurant creates an atmosphere that takes one to the Amalfi Coast. You don't feel that you are in L.A. The food is top notch and the service is impeccable. It is a bit expensive, but worth it overall."

  • "This is in a great location - I am not crazy about how they remodeled the space. I liked the old world charm of the previous restaurant given all of the patios with vines on the walls. The indoor bar area is nice. The food is okay - nothing special - very expensive. Pastas seem to all be over $25. I had a pasta with sausage and mushroom and the sausage was very chewy. Salad of artichoke and arugula again okay but not worth the $15 or so they charged for it."
