We love Villa Berulia. It's our "go-to" neigborhood spot, and never disappointing.
Delicious food and great staff. They were very attentive
We loved this restaurant the first time we came for my birthday about a year ago. My boyfriend raves about how perfect the steak was cooked. We decided to come back for a date night. However, the steak that he ordered as rare as possible came completely burned on the outside. I’m shocked that something so visually unappealing left the kitchen. The very middle was rare but just the very middle. Every other part of the steak was well done. We would have sent it back to get a proper cook that was asked, but not a single person checked on us until we had to basically beg for the check (after sitting for 15+ minutes with an empty table). We were very disappointed with this experience as it was horrible compared to the first. The only plus was that my salmon was great.
The owner and her brother greeted us warmly. Great ambiance, comfy. Service as impeccable, waiter knew the menu and was funny. Food came out quickly and was delicious. Great presentation of the desserts, A wonderful lunch.
Great place, Great Food, Great people our go to Italian in the whole city, makes you feel at home...
I work in the area, but had never dined at Villa Berulia before. It was a delightful experience. My friend and I loved that the restaurant is on 2 levels and that there are separate areas that offer some privacy and that minimize the noise that can often make for unhappy restaurant meals. Everything we ordered was delicious, the wine recommended was perfect, and the staff was friendly, relaxed, and welcoming. We've already recommended Villa Berulia to many of our friends and we will certainly be back!
Food was mediocre at best. Old monkfish. Old lobster in the pasta special. Very disappointing.

Of Murray hill. The food and service are impeccable. It has that old world charm and nice touches like a complementary after dinner cordial . We go there for special occasions and it never disappoints.

I ordered from the Restaurant week menu and had the fish was spectacular. My guest ordered from the menu and had to send it back because it tasted funny and then order the Salmon which they said was "Just OK"
Since i did not have any issues I definitely will return but without my guest
Lovely room with gracious service. The food is excellent. It’s just a bit too expensive!
A gem in a city crowded with excellent choices! A=plus
Another excellent meal at Villa Berulia. I was in New York for a business meeting and took a group of co-workers to Villa Berulia. The food was excellent. Everyone enjoyed their meal very much. The wait person worked with me to customize a dish to meet my dietary requirements and the meal was delicious. I try to visit Villa Berulia each time that I am in Manhattan because they are consistently good and I do not have to be concerned about recommending the restaurant to friends/business associates.
As the CEO of a nearby tech company, this is my "go to" place for important customer meetings. All that we bring there, love this place (as do I). The staff is extremely accommodating . The food is great. I would definitely give VB 5 Stars!!!
Really pleasant. Very good and very friendly service. ...excellent food. ..moderate prices...and quiet enough to talk. . Highly recommended
