The staff have been in place for years, and so have the chefs. They offer well seasoned Italian food, which includes delightful pastas. My personal favorite is the shrimp and pepperoni pizza. It is baked in a wood burning oven that provides a "special" flavor. The decor is upscale but the prives are moderate.

The atmosphere at Villa Italia is high quality, selection of seating is varied, and you can go inside or outside. The menu is varied and some of their own dishes have found their way into the pages.

This place was terrible. The service was slow and awkward. Our pasta arrived tepid to cold, and it was another 15 mnutes before... More

Being from a very italian town in NJ I would have to say this restaurant is no bueno. Steer clear of the red sauces they taste like Chef Boyardee. The white sauces were more palatable. The best was the Calamari appetizer with mushrooms and onions, better than the fried. The garlic soup was also very tasty. The salads are blah.... More
