About La Villetta Ristorante Italiano

Dining Italian Style is not just for sustenance, it"s the coming together of family & friends. At La Villetta, the meals prepared by Chef Maria are Old World recipes and her own creations prepared and served to her family and friends for over 25 years. From Caserta, Italy, she learned her culinary art under the tutelage of Chef Angelo Mirra. Maria with Angelo moved to Montreal, Canada via Basil, Switzerland where they worked as a team for eight years at the Hotel Simblone. In Montreal, the first of three 4-star restaurants opened and introduced Maria's style of Italian cuisine. Under the management of Maria's son & daughter, these restaurants still serve the people of Montreal Casa Cacciatore. In 1985 SALVATORE SELLITTO and MARIA COSTANZA opened Casa Cacciatore in Pompano Beach Florida. For 7 years their patrons from Boca Raton demanded they bring to Boca their real sense of Italian hospitality. CUCINA - RICERCATA E GENUINA BUON APPETITO

Very authentic Southern Italian cuisine. Excellent service. Extremely attentive and knowledgeable server. Hand-made fettuccini noodles with vine ripened fresh tomatoes was cooked to perfection. Tortellini in broth was fantastic. Chicken Suprema was supremely tasty. Jumbo shrimp cocktail was mouth watering delicious. House salad with vinigerette dressing was fresh and tasty. Flourless chocolate cake was delicious. Chocolate eclair was exceptional. Overall excellent dining experience. Fantastico! Brava!

Food good. Coffee much to strong. Would not switch out sides. Example. The dish I wanted had risotto and I wanted a potato instead no reason they couldn’t do that as all the other meals came with a potato very rigid restaurant

We’ve been to La Villetta many times and it was one of my favorites. I ordered the swordfish and was extremely disappointed. It was not what I would expect a restaurant of this quality to serve. Skinny and tasteless. Salad was also a zero. Our server was very nice... he even warned me!

This is such a wonderful place. This is not a tourist stop but t home to regulars and they treat everyone like you are a regular.
Coco our regular waiter is un believable always attentive and great memory . I have dined here many times and never a disappointment. Try it and you will be a regular also . Try to house specialty whole baked fish it's amazing or go on Sundays for the Su day gravey and you will never be disappointed any day you go.

i was a bit disappointed in La Valletta. The appetizer of poblano pepper stuffed with cheese was good. the waiter sliced it into 4 portions because we were 4 people. Very accommodating. Mu husband had a veal dish with eggplant. He said it was tasty but not enough on the plate. I had my all time favorite dish of Chicken Scarpiello. There was a taste of it being prepared many hours before and reheated. not what you would expect from a highly respected restaurant. The wait staff was always attentive.

Cannot beat Maria's home made pastas. Loved the cheese ravioli appetizer... Crowned by the sea-salted snapper - which is a gift from heaven !! Hard to order anything else. Accompanied by green veggie and potatoes. Perfection !!

Really nice surprise. Trying new restaurants and thought the food was excellent, presentation and service was outstanding. True representation of Italian cuisine. They even have a tiered dessert cart that looked amazing. We were so full to try. We will have to come back.

I was not pleased with my dinner, but others in our group of 4 thought theirs were good. Waiter was extremely slow, maybe had too many tables to tend to. It was noisy, had to lean in to be hear others talking. Not planning on returning.
