Villanelle is a treasure! It is a quiet oasis in Greenwich Village. The farm to table menu fits the
bill. The menu is small, but what there is is sublime. The room is small with understated decor.
Our servor was perfect! Efficient, unobtrusive, friendly, with a sense of humor as understated as the decor.
I can't wait to return to Villanelle!

good location, decor, service, and vibe. cocktails and food (particularly the macerated brussel sprouts, which are not to be missed) are excellent, albeit very small portions for the price.

Food was wonderful. The waiter needed more experience to provide guidance on large parties. We were a group of six and needed doubles or triple on the tortellini pastas for sharing. Besides they were great'!

Brought 3 friends who had never been to Villanelle. All thought food, atmosphere and service were terrific. Two live in the neighborhood and will be back. Food and presentation were both exceptional. A bit pricy, but utterly worth it.

Bravo to the chef!! Every meal here is a delight, and the Brussel sprouts and beet salad are out of this world. That may also have been the very best grilled octopus I've had since I was last in Greece.

Service was overly informative--to the point of needing to say, "that's enough editorializing of the menu" but the food was good. Opening plate was very small for price but good. Entree was more reasonably priced and better. Cocktails were very good.

Clean lines and clean place! Think lunch selections were a bit on the heavy side for summer.
Very good service and pleasant atmosphere. Will definitely go again.
A "winner" for the neighborhood - not kitschy, not cheap - definitely more sophisticated.

Amazing service and food! Brussels sprouts was delicious with really high quality of ingredients and the Pork belly was fantastic with honey gastrique on Swiss chard.
