Italian
La Villetta, “cottage” in Italian, is housed in a former carriage house whose building dates back to 1910. This unique space features tones of emerald green, colorful blue, red and yellow stoneware and exposed brick walls giving it both an intimate and rustic feel. The emerald green and dusk blue are reminiscent of the stunning seas and coastline of Puglia, Italy. The region of Puglia is known for its legendary yet simplistic cuisine and boasts some of the best Mediterranean fare

The restaurant has enclosed outdoor dining and true sidewalk dining as week as inside. We asked as a party of four to be on the sidewalk in open air. The food was excellent, drinks and wine generous and good quality. The veal dishes are first rate and the pasta is the among the best in the city. A necker to choice form high end Northern Italian cooking.

Very nice neighborhood eatery on the far East Side in midtown. Pleasant atmosphere with greenery and brick walls. Quite good Italian food and very professional service. I found it a bit overpriced given the location and level but I guess they have to pay the rent ....

The food is quite good. We had pasta. The tables are very close together and the acoustics are very poor. It is very noisy. I find it a quick Italian fix, rather than a dining experience.
But it is very busy and that is the price you pay.

Great experience overall! Lots of specials. Attentive waitress. Food was reasonably priced for NYC and salads/pastas delicious. The brick-lined room is pretty but the tables felt too close together.

The waiter was very entertaining and attentive. The list of specials was endless. We shared some appetizers and we each had separate entree’s that were delicious. The portions are large and the four of us took home three doggie bags.

Pasta and fish dishes were excellent. Small plate pasta dishes available. Great neighborhood place.
Only negative is the temperature of the place. Too cold. Some people were wearing their coats. Food cooled off quickly.

Great place. Highly recommend. Lunch was unbelievably priced. Service was good. Food is fresh. We ended up having the place to ourselves. Enjoyed the salmon and asparagus. Calamari was slightly overcooked but good. Tiramisu was delish. Definitely add this your restaurant list. Mangia!

My date is a regular, but this was my first visit, and an excellent introduction! Nice combination of traditional and innovative Italian food and wine! A little pricey, but pleasant noise level and good service are compensations. I'll be back!

We were a party of 15. The table was nicely set by the time we got there. From the beginning the manager and servers were attentive and give us good service through the evening.
Food was tasty and portions were just perfect for an evening meal.
Wine is slightly pricey.
Cozy place for a work or date dinner.

Great Xmas Eve meal - I mean, really delicious food. Bit chaotic with backups on reservations but I think it was large families lingering longer than anticipated on the holiday. Will definitely be back!
