Best time ever here, except... It took over an hour to get our food. When it came, it was great. And Melinda was wonderful. I asked for something special, sort of a mix of two items on the special Lobster menu. I was a bit surprised to see that they were able to make it for me. As far as the wait, I suspect they were a bit overwhelmed by the crowd for their Lobster Feast.

Everybody at our table enjoyed their dinners and all the food was very hot. I would highly recommend Artichoke Française as an appetizer and a dinner choice of Lasagna Bianca. We have eaten at Villa Napolentana many times as the food is always consistently excellent. Parking was difficult and there was some staffing issues, however, our waitress Taylor was very pleasant and accommodating. We had a great night.

Great food every time. Sat outside this time, which was a good potion at this time. While the outdoor seating is not as attractive as the indoor seating, it was quieter.

I'm told its a neighborhood staple but I am not a fan. Everything seemed overcooked or just fried...even things that don't need to be like mozzarella and tomatoes.

Our reservation was for 5:00 for a party of five outside. We started with appetizers & drinks which were all delicious. Our waitress was friendly, helpful and accommodating. The main course did not disappoint. I asked for extra mushrooms for my Veal Marsala.
The veal was tender and I loved all the extra mushrooms. We ended with desserts inside as it started to rain. The staff cheerfully set us up in one of the dinning rooms and it was a great night with jazz playing in the background.

I've been to this Restaurant on many occasions. Everything about this place, just rocks. The Food is incredible and the Server we had, her name was Crystal. She always goes above and beyond to assist in anyway possible. Western Mass needs more Restaurants like this.

My first time there and I don’t think I’ll go back. My server was GREAT! The food was mediocre. I had the fettuccine Alfredo with broccoli and shrimp. The sauce was watery and the shrimp was tepid at best but I damn near burned my mouth on the broccoli. We ordered the clams casino for the table and specifically requested no bacon, well 40 minutes later guess what, yes sir it had bacon. We told our server and she apologized and was immediately on it. Less than 5 minutes later it came back without bacon. Hmmmm took 40 minutes to get and 5 minutes for a redo. Clearly they just took the bacon off. Which I find unacceptable. I will say this they were fantastic. I could have had another plate instead of the fettuccine. It’s overpriced in my opinion and loud. To be fair we were loud too. I must emphasize our server, I think her name was Crystal, was fantastic. They were busy and short staffed, like the rest of the country, but she was on her game.

Sat at the bar and received GREAT service and suggestions from Zachary. Very comfortable. Good pacing of courses. Had a martini which was made nicely except it had sad soggy little salad olives instead of big martini olives which is disappointing. Meatball appetizer was delish. Great tomato sauce. Caesar salad was delish, fresh and crunchy. Dressing tasted homemade. I had a shrimp francese served on spinach which was cooked nicely and had tasty lemony sauce but very little spinach. Needed 3x as much to soak up that lovely sauce. Good prices and overall a good evening!

It was a wonderful outing. My one complaint is that the food took a little longer than normal to come out for a place that wasn’t overly crowded. But the food was wonderful, the server was one of the best I ever had, and even with the small wait, I WILL DEFINITELY be back!!

It was our first time there, I thought it would be nice to sit outside so we choose the courtyard, chairs were too low to the table. Tables were also too small.Waitress was struggling with were to go with everything.My wife was more than pleased with her food. I on the other hand was not .The veal chop was fatty, the mushroom gravy was awesome, no mashed potatoes to go with it, I was offered veggies or pasta, the pasta sauce was so salty I couldn't eat it. Waitress was new and didn't offer us a special that was offered us Sunday night. I hate writing bad reviews but in this case hopefully we all can learn a lesson. I will be giving them another try. I'm gonna eat inside, I'm not gonna order the pasta. The other meals on the menu were very interesting. Overall I give it a 3

It was our first visit. The food was delicious but definitely a noisy atmosphere.

The only observations was regarding cleanliness. The plastic shield setup up per Covid restrictions was soiled and unappealing for a restaurant setting.

My friend and I have dined at VN on several occasions and we have always been pleased. Last night was no exception. The food was terrific. The server, Hannah, was attentive and personable. While we were happy to have a table outside, it was inevitable that city noises would occur. Not too bad, but the space is so large, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to put some sound and visual barriers around the perimeter. Even with pandemic restrictions easing up, people still want to sit outside, especially for the next few months.
Beautiful espresso martini created by Carlos.

Arrived at 7pm for Mother’s Day reservation, nobody was at the desk helping anybody. Manager came out with a host to talk to a customer who had been waiting an hour with a reservation. So we left, not a great Mother’s Day.

Well once again we had a tremendous time at Villa Napoletana. The clam chowder was possibly the best I have ever had. All our meals were, once again, outstanding. In fact whether we drake it or ate it, it was simply an awesome experience. Our waiter Zack was highly professional along with the entire staff. Villa Napoletana is simply the best place to dine in the area. The atmosphere is perfect for any occasion. My favorite place to dine with ease and relaxation. Please pass on our thanks to all. See you again. Soon!!!!

After multiple visits, it’s been consistently great. Food is delicious and the staff excellent. This time, I took off a star because you don’t leave the tail on a francaise shrimp. It’s hidden Embarrassed to spit it into a napkin.
Place was busy, staff attentive, evening entertainment spot on. Cocktails as well. Don’t hesitate to go.

This Restaurant is a Hidden Gem in East Longmeadow. The food is nothing, short of phenomenal. Everything is made to order. The Wine here is very good. If, you do go dine here, ask for Crystal to be your Server. Highly recommend going to here to dine.
