Sterile wipes in all bathrooms
Food and service wonderful
Thanks for taking such good care of us
Never a missed dish, always tasty and fresh
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.
As always, it was great. Luigi makes us feel so very welcome, the food and wine are terrific, the ambiance is perfect and the staff are all so very lovely.
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.
We always enjoy having dinner here. This a wonderful restaurant to have in the neighborhood. The waitstaff is extremely attentive. The food is marvelous.
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.
Always a wonderful meal and experience. My wife and I love it!
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.
This is an adorable, tiny, one-room restaurant with very attentive staff and nice Italian food. A neighborhood staple!
Nice little place. They do a good job. High server ratio. Food is above average. NoT expensive for the quality
Outstanding food. Specials are extremely thought out by the chef. Cozing restaurant, about 20 tables. I will certainly be back.
Food was average, and they kept asking if we were finished. Anxious to turn the tables, felt rushed.
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!
Nice neighborhood spot.
Excellent. My Pork chop Milanese was out of this world. The ambiance was very nice but a bit tight and a little noisy.
A wonderful neighborhood gem. The service is very welcoming and the food was outstanding.
Tables were insanely close together and ruined the dining experience for me. Food was otherwise good.
I have been a number of times and find it to be an excellent neighborhood restaurant, great food, great service and very nice atmosphere.
I have been here many times and it's always consistently terrific.
Nice staff and great food - always fresh. Great little neighborhood place.
Food is always outstanding no matter what we order. A true neighborhood gem!
We had a great time. Food was great and service attentive. Not fancy but very solid.
Best Vitello alla Parmigiana I’ve ever had, absolutely delicious!!
Professional, warm and courteous service with delicious food!
Very tightly packed with not an inch to spare which detracts from the ambience but food and service were excellent
The service was prompt and professional, the food was excellent..it was a delightful Dinner evening.
We will be back several times.
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.
My favorite go to place. I found a winner. 👍👍
Helpful, efficient staff, and food was delicious. Loved the cozy ambiance and variety offered! We will come back.
Food was uncharacteristically terrible. A quiet Monday night.
Everything about La Villetta is wonderful.
We always enjoy having dinner here. The restaurant is warm and inviting. The food is delicious and well prepared. The wait staff is very attentive. A wonderful dinner.
Good food and service.
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!
Food and service was wonderful
Very pretty place and the food was quite good. The only criticism I have is that I felt the waiter was trying to rush my group of 5 a bit. Perhaps it was a busy evening in December and he had no choice because he needed to turn the table quickly. We enjoyed the restaurant, but I walked away feeling the waiter wanted us to sit, order, eat, get coffee and dessert and leave.
Food excellent as always.
Never disappointing and always delightful!!
