OpenTable Diner (New York Area)

Good for what it is - a neighborhood Italian restaurant. Nothing fancy, but good variety, good food, pleasant service and reasonably priced. And the attached gelato store is always tempting.

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.

The pizza here is the best I've had in the area and I am from NJ, where we have pizza on every corner. I love the appetizers I have had, especially the mussels. The gelato is a great dessert option there, too.

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!!

Quality of food is very good. Really enjoyed the Gorgonzola flatbread appetizer - the added roasted garlic was a nice surprise. And love the fact they serve Switchback beer!

Ok for a quick bite, nothing at all special here. There are plenty of other places in the area that are better.

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.

Food was very good. Service was attentive and the kitchen was very accommodating to any special requests (e.g. Leave onions off, etc.). Food is very reasonably priced and parking is ample making it a good stress free choice for dining out

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..

From starting to end. Waitress was very nice and was able to answer all our questions. The food was actually hot, not Luke warm like other places.

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.

Hav been here many times, and keep returning. Waitstaff are friendly and prompt, food quality is good. I especially like that they use some local produce in their menu. Always an easy place to get an early supper after a day shopping in town.
