2.0  Dined on February 15, 2018

Villa D'Este used to be our favorite restaurant. The food is still good. Unfortunately, the restaurant has not been maintained during these many years and now it is dirty and in desperate need of new paint. There were lots of cobwebs in the ladies bathroom. Many of the lights in the chandelier were out and not replaced. The place really needs a facelift. The service this last time was absolutely terrible and it wasn't even that crowded. We had to wait a very long time to get each course. We were over charged by a lot and and had to return our bill for an adjustment. We were all very disappointed. I really hope they get their act together so it can be what it once used to be.

food is okay, portions very small, thats about it, great ambiance, piano player and singer really add to the atomsphere. Small crowd that night, so they were able to play all the requests for various songs

would go back for a drink or coffee and dessert to listen to the music

Old-style Italian, leisurely dining. Ala carte or 5-courses. Sweetbreads! Reasonable cost.

This is a classic old Italian restaurant. The service is impeccable, the ambiance very nice. The prices are a true value. My only criticism is that my calamari steak was very bland, with just breading, no spices or sauce. We also had the escargot, which was amazing, and the eggplant Parmesan which was very good.

Server was very attentive and unobtrusive. Food was good. Restaurant was not very busy. We sat there for hours talking and they never tried to shoo us out. I would go back again.

This was such a fun dinner. The restaurant is a kick back to the 70s (maybe 60s). The food was good, not haute cuisine, but enjoyable. They have a full bar and we were able to enjoy cocktails with our antipasto. The dinning room is also amazing. The staff was very friendly and efficient. The value is the best I've seen in years.
