This is our go to spot for a quick lunch or take home for dinner. Their Ravs & Sauce are great. Their sandwiches are a staple for field trips for my daughters. Everything is so tasty. It is a little whole in the wall, but worth a stop. Chris combo is another fantastic sandwich.

While visiting our son, he wanted to show us his favorite lunch spot. Now we know why. This is a small deli that frankly isn't much to look at. The food however is amazing. Fresh pasta, great sandwiches and freshly grilled meats from the smoker in the parking lot. Were this place to be near our home this would be... More

What a pleasant surprise. I'm fairly new to the Bay Area, originally from New York and have been sorely missing good Italian food. A friend told me to try La Villa and I'm so happy that I did. The ravioli is what they're known for, and it was fine. It wasn't the best ravioli I've ever had, but it's heads... More

Known for raviolis, can be eaten at La Villa, take out prepared, or buy a box of frozen and sauce separately. Numerous meat selections, prepared salads, hearty sandwiches loaves of bread not found elsewhere, incredible desserts, even cuccidati cookies at Christmas time. Often a line, so prepare to wait, but somehow this is not offensive. Also, a well selected wine... More

If you're looking for a real Italian Deli, look no further. So much to see - to taste! You can even eat outside if you'd like. I get stuffed artichokes there and you can either buy them hot or cold to be heated at home later. Be sure to call ahead and your order will be ready and waiting!

Every time we are visiting our son and his wife, we make sure we stop in to see Chris and most importantly get a couple of quarts of Ravs and Chris Specials. The raviolis just melt in your mouth and they are smothered in the best red sauce!! The Chris Special is an amazing sandwich and unfortunately Chris won't tell... More

Having lunch here on a Saturday is an adventure in chaos, as this traditional Italian deli is a very popular place. First thing upon entering, grab a number and then be prepared to make your way slowly toward the front of the line. Once your number is called by a person behind the counter, order your lunch from the whiteboard... More

The large variety of pasta, salads and desserts available here is awesome. You can order ahead of time online and your order is ready for pick up. You can purchase raviollis cooked or uncooked.
