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

We dined at 6 restaurants during a recent NYC stay and La Viletta was our favorite by far. I give this restaurant high marks in all categories. The service was spot on, the food fresh and flavorful (INCLUDING HOUSE MADE DESSERT!...such a welcome change from a restaurant that tries to pass of a frozen cake as their own), and a well balanced wine list with very fair pricing. This is my trifecta of a favorite spot.

Hit and Miss. locals fill the place up quickly by 6:30. And tables very close together. Fish is Excellent and priced averaged. Chicken dishes have a lot of ingredients piled on them the
Pasta is very good but avoid any with tomatoes. Always over sauced and it drowns out the nicely al dente pasta
Wine list average. Desserts the same
For s local place not necessarily good $ value

Party of 6 and 4 of our entrees were unacceptable. Service was slow and 1 entree came out 10 minutes later. Check presented in a very rude and aggressive manner.

Service and environment were nice. Their special list was longer than the regular menu and that should have been a sign of the problem. I think if you order off the main menu things will be fine. For example, their gnocchi was pretty good. Nice sauce and good texture; could have been pan seared a bit but overall good food for the price. Many got main dishes off the specials. Across the table, the osso bucco was off the special list and clearly was something that had been cooked days earlier (reheated, dry, overcooked, too salty and no bone marrow).

Neighborhood eatery that is usually laid back and not rushed This time I felt as if the waitress was rushing us. We were there for a reunion and it felt as though she was a breathing down our necks.

I had been to the restaurant before and enjoyed it, and returned with family last night. This time they rushed us through our meal. We sat down before 6 PM and had 3 courses in about 45 minutes. The salads were very good, but the chicken was salty. The restaurant was not crowded.

We moved into the neighborhood in Aug and have been looking for a great neighborhood Italian resturant. A friend of my wife told her about La Villetta. We stopped in for dinner and are hooked. Fantastic food. Amazing Service. Plus I love to sit at a bar and eat.
