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.

This place is a knock out. It works on all levels. Gorgeous room, great food, excellent staff. And it's an interestingly different menu. I look forward to returning and making my way through the menu.

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. Will definitely came back with other guest. I will say that Villanelle’s is a wonderful place to enjoy a great meal with your loved ones.

Super food in a wonderful location. So delicious! Chicken was fantastic. Panna Cotta with preaches was spectacular. Nice wine list. Not too many choices, but everything is delicious.
