Once again we had a great meal. The service was excellent and the atmosphere was very good. This was my birthday and could not have asked for a better meal. I would highly recommend this restaurant for anyone in the area looking for a comfortable meal where you can get a great selection in an authentic italian restaurant.

Convenient valet parking begins the evening followed by prompt respect for you reservation time.
The menu selections are classic with nightly specials; all are ample portions and reasonably price.
The staff is experienced, many having been there for years, and very attentive to your needs.
AN OVERALL GOOD CHOICE.

The food was terrific. Every single thing we ordered was exceptional, from the fried calamari to the veal chop with tomatoes and arugula, to the pan-fried yellow tail. Even the bread was something special.
The service was as good as the food; George was patient and knowledgeable, the food came quickly, and the recommended wines complemented the food beautifully. All four of us could not have been more pleased.

This was the first time we tried La Villetta Ristorante Italiano. We really enjoyed the experience. We had a terrific server Jeff, who was enthusiastic and attentive and helped us with our choices. The Bruschetta was complimentary and it went well with our glasses of wine. This food was delicious and we had shared prosciuto and melon, followed by a sliced sirloin fiorentina and a perfectly cooked cappellini which was one of their "go to" dishes.
I have heard that the restaurant might have been overpriced, but I didn't think so since the quality of all of our dishes and the size of our portions were plentiful. We loved the Italian Ricotta Cheesecake for dessert. I would go back there in a minute since the menu was so varied. We live in West Boca, but this trip East was well worth the commute.

We took our kids here for their grandpas birthday. We were welcomed and seated in a pleasant area. The food was delicious although my granddaughter and daughter in law have lots of food allergies and had a little trouble finding something for each that would meet their needs. However, in the end they did and were happy with their choices. Probably the only issue was occasional delays in the service which seemed odd in such an upscale restaurant. On the other hand we had a lovely evening together!

La Villetta Restorante Italiano is a true gem. The House Specialty is whole fish (trout) baked in sea salt and deboned table side is a must try. The wine list is as expected and the service is par excellence. Salvatore and Chef Maria treat everyone like family.
My husband and I were out with our friends from the area and we just keep coming back over and over again. This is a sign of a great restaurant. Enjoy, Repeat, Enjoy!!

I made reservations for Valentine's Day a month ahead of time. The restaurant confirmed it the week before. We were seated promptly. Our waiter and assistants were there in a flash. We were presented with the specials after our drink order was taken and delivered. We were not in a rush and service was appropriately timed. The bill was reasonable and a 20% tip was fully earned and deserved. We are looking forward to returning sooner rather than later. For now, it's back to the gym.

This is the first time to this restaurant and we will certainly go back. The food was excellent, the staff quite attentive. We found the atmosphere to be quite enjoyable. While we were dining a bit early(6pm) tables filled quickly as the night went on but never was the noise level too high nor was the staff stressed to not be attentive.

Excellent service makes you feel like a valued customer. House wine is a real bargain as well. Dinners come with a tossed salsa... reminiscent of days gone by. Dinners were veal parm, veal with scallions, and chicken with eggplant. Portions were large enough to make lunch the next day.

This is an upscale restaurant, and we made an Open Table reservation. We were met at the door and told we had a 'special table reserved'. Well that 'special table' was a booth in the bar area facing the door to the restrooms. We complained and were told by the owner that he had 'overbooked'. We took the table, but the meal was ruined from this seating.

In leaving, we found out that the real reason for our banishment to the 'leper colony', was that the owner was saving tables for his regulars in the main dining room. Since he did not know us he put us in the bar area. He said he could have put us somewhere in the dining room, but the meal would be rushd to make way for other guests.

The long and the short, excellent food, but if you are considering this on a Friday or Saturday night and have not been here before and have an Open Table reservation, be prepared to be treated like an intruder and placed at a table where the scenery is people going to the restrooms.

It was an awful experience that we have never experienced before. This was not a hamburger and fried place but an experience upscale dining establishment.

I have eaten in your restaurant many times and have loved the food and ambiance. This past Saturday night i decided to start my dinner with a shrimp cocktail. How disappointing to find only 3 shrimp for $16. They should have at least been prawns or at least 5 shrimp.
