La Villa Bistro and Pizzeria Ratings and Reviews
The service on this visit was very slow, e.g. over a half hour before the waitress even took our orders. This could be explained by the fact that we were a large party of 12 and the restaurant was quite crowded, but nonetheless it was a disappointment in relation to our many previous dining experiences at La Villa. The food was excellent as usual, so our only complaint was the rather unusual lack of timely service.
Our meal was Excellent!
It's not a super fancy atmosphere, but clean and nice, and comfortable. I guess I'm saying that because the food was so good you'd expect it to be over the top fancy and pricey...
The food was cooked to order and delicious. Had a great Margarita too!!
Service was horrible. Waited to long to place our order. Then waited way to long to just get our drinks. Which they forgot mine. Finally received an attitude when my cousin, who is vegan, had to send back his meal due to cheese being in it(which there is no mention of on the menu). Their response was "So do you want us to make you a new one?" How about "So sorry, we'll get you a new one right away".
Food, on the other hand, was very good. Salad was perfect and the Pizza was one of the best in the neighborhood.
The food was really good. The server was friendly, however, not very present. She was being overworked. She had too many tables. Our salad came out long after our pizza. It was definitely forgotten and we had to remind about 3 times. She did end up comping the salad because of how it kept getting forgotten and she was very nice. You could tell she was doing her best.
The chicken parm was very flavorful and spicy. The Shrimp with tomato and herb was not what I expected, but it was good. You could definitely taste the wine in the sauce. I would have preferred more garlic. I could not taste any. The calamari had sliced black olives, chopped tomatoes, hot peppers, with a drizzle of balsamic reduction. Tasted great. Service was very good, friendly, and helpful. Will definitely go again.
Good homestyle food. Better than expected. We ordered mussels, pizza, chicken w/vegetables and mushroom ravioli, also a salad. Overall, good quality. Try the gelato, it was delicious, we had the apple cider donut and apple pie (seasonal flavors). Both were great.
This is a good restaurant to take the family too. The decor is stuck in the early 90's, definitely not trendy. Doesn't have ambiance, but makes up for it in charm.
We have dined at La Villa several times in the last year in general the food is good, the service this last time was very good but then it was not very busy. They take their time preparing the food which we actually appreciate. I ordered the La Villa pizza, we have lots of good pizza places and I am not counting Uno in the mix. Their crust I really liked, it was thin and crispy but tender. I was disappointed in the topping, I could not tell the sausage from the meatball, the pepperoni was good. I brought it home and doctored up with some zucchini and mushrooms and mozzarella. My husband has had the fried xhicken several times and says it is absolutely excellent. Isn't that unique having fried chicken (Misty Knolls) with garlic mashed potatoes in an Italian restaurant? It is supposed to be some white and some dark meat, this time it was mostly white which my husband is not fond of but he said it was cooked so nicely he had no complaints.
The Tiramiso was not what I had expected and have had in several other restaurants, it was a good desert but to me it was not a lucious serving of one of my favorite deserts. The Tiramiso gelato was better..
We went with friends for my birthday. It had been two years since we last went. The restaurant was the same, quaint, romantic, friendly. We had the artichoke dip as an appetizer, which is still to die for. Everything, including the service was memorable. This restaurant is by far one of the best hidden gems in the Burlington area. We will definitely return.
We arrived an hour early for a 6:30 pm reservation with our party of 5 on a busy Mothers' Day. The hostess graciously welcomed us and was able to seat us immediately and without issue despite the crowded scene.
Food was very good with our table ranging from goat cheese and prosciutto pizza to eggplant parm with special requests and pasta carbonara. All but the eggplant were served together. Eggplant arrived almost 10 min later. Kitchen needs better planning to coordinate timing of baked dishes with pastas. Waitress was apologetic and cordial.
Gelato was excellent with a light creamy texture and was the perfect conclusion to this lovely meal. Our waitress was seen a bit less than we might have liked during the latter half of our visit but we can't fault her for that as we had arrived early and the restaurant was expectedly very full and busy.
Overall, this was a satisfying dining experience and we will not hesitate to return and to recommend to others.
A nice neighborhood restaurant, busy on a Monday evening. Family-friendly, attentive waitstaff, down-to-earth atmosphere. Nice wine but my dish (chicken ravioli) was not as tasty as I had hoped. Friend pleased with her salmon salad. Might be worth returning one day to sample other dishes.
The food was great, but one of the meals someone in my party chose was more fatty than meaty. They were a little disappointed. The meat they did have was delicious. My meal was amazing! Great flavors! The atmosphere was great and service was impeccable. We will be going back for sure!
My family has been going to La Villa for the past few years and we have really noticed that the quality of cuisine keeps getting better and the prices are remaining reasonable. This is a great place for a romantic dinner or a nice get together with friends. Please try it out for yourself as you will not be disappointed.
It is great to be able to have conversation and sharing with a friend without having to shout or feel that the table next to us is in our conversation. Atmosphere is lovely and relaxed at the same time. Our server was knowledgeable and friendly. Food is good and there are diverse options to meet all needs.
This is one of our favorite places for a date day lunch... but this time the food was not as good as it usually is. The Caesar Salad dressing was terribly watery and not very appealing. But the pasta was excellent and the truffle fries are amazing. Overall... this is a great little hidden gem for good pasta and pizza... but probably not a great idea for a salad! Looking forward to our next visit.
The pasta sauce was excellent without the overpowering taste of garlic which is present in many competitors sauces. Our server (Alexis) was very efficient and pleasant often commenting on the positive attributes of the meal choices that our foursome made. The meal was served in a timely manner but we did not feel rushed. Although the overall ambiance could be improved, I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone that wants to enjoy an Italian meal that is well prepared and at a fair price.
We were the last table seated on a very busy night, fair enough. Michael, the server was very efficient in light of the load of tables he was handling. Gorgonzola Flatbread was limp and rubbery. Shrimp with herbs pasta dish very bland. Large Toasted Blue Pizza was limp, bland and unappealing. Two bottles of Seghesio Zin at $45 each saved the meal experience. We dine here fairly regularly and went this time to turn family onto La Villa. Bummer.
Made a night of it to see a favorite local band (Deja-Nous) not knowing what to expect for dinner. We had a tough time deciding on a dish, as everything sounded so delicious. No one was disappointed! Salads were wonderful and creative, entrees were delicious and plenty to take home and enjoy the next day. The Brussel sprouts were the best ever. Great service, and of course the music was great too. Look forward to the next visit. Thank you.
In South Burlington to attend a wedding and Used Open Table app to locate a restaurant that could seat our party of 20. We all love Italian cuisine and were happy to see La Villa Bistro could take our Thursday night reservation. After arriving we were delighted to find ourselves seated in their private dining area. Lauren our server was a gem--very cheerful, patient and accommodating throughout the evening. The food was delicious, with everyone loving their choice of entrée and, after Lauren helped us take group photos, we left happy & contented. My wife and I look forward to our next visit so we can treat ourselves at La Villa!!!
