It took me 25 years to arrive on this day at Pizza Villa. It's embarrassing. I've lived here that long and had just never gotten here. Part of that was having made an uneducated guess about the kind of place this was, and what kind of food they served. I was wrong, which is what often happens when we judge... More

We are staying in Portland for the weekend and after walking around all day we wanted something close to our hotel. Across the street is this pizza place. We decided to give it a try. This is a real simple place. You order at the counter and they will bring your pizzas once they are done. Their menu is basically... More

While at the medical center we were looking for a quick bite to eat. The menu here is not huge but offers a variety of subs, pizzas, and calzones. You order up at the counter and they deliver to your table. Our subs and calzones were nicely prepared and very tasty. The staff were also very friendly.

This place was open early. I was not stuck at a wee bus station. I just had the best haddock chowder EVER! Kreg was very accommodating. A friendly bartender that had no problem, letting me, and all my luggage sit here... at 10:00am... until 1. Also he turned me on to the chowder 😉 I hear the small sandwich here,... More

For decades, Pizza Villa has been a bar/restaurant that has served up some of the best thin crust pizza in Portland. Nothing gourmet here. Go to Ottos for that. But great pizza the way they always made it. A bar is attached to the Pizza making/consuming space, so factor that in as a positive, or as a negative, as you... More

Got a take out with artichoke hearts, tomatos, and extra cheese (a daily special of which I don't remember the name). Was delicious and not too sweet. The pizza definitely lives up to the hype and the actual place looks like a great pub to visit.

The atmosphere was definitely local bar/pub and we like that so it was great. I had meatballs with sauce, someone got spaghetti with sauce, and 2 friends got pizzas and we all loved our meal. Great portions at a reasonable price and it was close to our hotel so we could walk. It wasn't fancy but it was tasty and... More

Had a chicken sandwich and my boyfriend had a chicken arm sandwich. Their serving sizes are pretty big. Only thing I was disappointed about was that they only have 10 inch pizzas. Also, they are a bit far from the Portland bay area, which is where we were so it was a bit of a walk.

I have been going to the Villa for 30 years. Excellent personal pizzas that are delicious and a quaint little pub too. The place rocks!

A pizza place in one area and a neighborhood bar in another area is a popular combination. On busy Congress Street and near the Maine Medical Center and Sea Dogs baseball this is a popular place. 10 inch pizzas and sandwiches make up most of the menu and they are very tasty. You order at the counter and your food... More
