Very enjoyable, waiter was very personable, noise level too high, food was excellent, SUNDAY GRAVY exceptional
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.
No one at front. Couldn’t find reservation. Finally did. Table didn’t seem to have a waiter. Drink came after salad after we told busboy we never got drink or water or bread.
Food was terrific. Serve was also. Just a little noisy but we could still have conversations
Excellent food, consistently great food.
Authentic Italian cuisine. Everything made from scratch. Food is outstanding and service is top notch.
Have been going to this restaurant for three years on special occasions. Have never been disappointed by the food or the service. Everyone is very friendly and go out of their way to make you feel welcome.
Very nice. Service excellent. Food fabulous
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!
First timers! Highly recommended by friends ... and we will go again.
From the greeting to the goodnight, the evening was perfect.
Best!!!! Service and good are simply the best!
Hands down the best Boca has to offer in all categories
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.
The food is excellent and the veal recipes are unique. However you certainly pay for the experience.
We were late. Maitre d' seated us although they were fully booked. Nice menu. Great wine list.
Excellent food. Great service from our waiter, Gene.
A wonderful find and an outstanding neighborhood place.
Service was wonderful, very professional. The special whole yellowtail snapper was fabulous, de-boned at the table.
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.
Wonderful restaurant ,delicious food and great host,good service and consistently pleasant atmosphere.
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.
Great food and service.
It was delicious with nice ambiance. Will eat there again!
Fabulous Boca Raton, FL restaurant. Authentic Italian and been in business a long time. Extremely consistent and very friendly. Easy valet parking.
Always excellent. Authentic Italian. Table service and wine recommendations enhance a perfect meal.
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.
As usual, wonderful food and service. Sal makes you feel special.
Always a favorite. Good food, good drinks, good service. Can’t miss
Excellent service here. House wine is an unbelievable value. Bread basket is great! Salads are included with dinners. Our entrees were lasagna, a Saturday special, and veal Pavarotti. Delicious!
Great food, excellent service. This was our first time here even though it has been in business a long time. I'm glad we finally dined here. We will be back.
Always great!!! Especially love their signature fish but other dishes are wonderful too.
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!
Table ready when we arrived - good and service great
As always, service and food were exceptional. You know w when you recommend this restaurant, everything will be just so as you experienced it.
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
Sal and Marie run the best Italian in Boca. Quite and relaxing, always good food, prices not bad either. We go there at least once per month. service is always a Ten and so is the food. Great desserts as well.
The food is savory and superb like Mamma made. I had the lemon/caper fish with mushrooms. It was beyond great. My husband from Milan had the home made pasta. It was the Real deal- Best pasta in Boca!!! The dessert is a cart selection but the ricotta cheesecake is to die for.!!!!OMG!!!!The dining room is quiet and great for real conversation with friends. This is a go to place for a great meal every time. It requires a reservation. Wonderful service.
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.
The food was great and the wait staff very professional. I've been there a few times and so far every experience have been excellent!
Waited 20 minutes for a wait staff, wine we ordered was not what was described on the wine list, my roasted peppers were swimming in oil, chicken dish my friend had was over cooked
