Service is always excellent, lunch or dinner.Spanish and Portuguese dishes are always consistently good, it has a very small bar area. You can also call and order food to go.

This Wayne institution is different from many similar restaurants – it’s very large, family owned and with a huge menu – but its food and service are both excellent. The flavors are Portuguese and Spanish, so the food is well seasoned and interesting, and the portions are plentiful. Don’t miss the olives – small gems with garlic and oil. Delicioso!... More

What more can you ask for! Everything was great. We had never been there before, so it was a real treat to find a new place with great food. Veal was terrific - tender and flavorful. Chorizo Appetizer was large enough for 3 to share. Dessert was very tasty.

We were recco. to go here, with the understanding that the Spanish food (which is "more" on the Portugese-side, was VERY GOOD. (Don't forget-- the more appetizers, & "Specials", along with desserts: REALLY ADDS UP! We forgot to bring our camera, as the servings were very generous (especially the paella!), and quite tasteful. My only concern is: their white sangria.... More

My husband and I live in Wayne, which has several good restaurants. However, there is only one that serves great Spanish/Portuguese food comparable to the "Ironbound" section of Newark; and Villa Verde is it. From appetizers to dessert you won't go wrong.

We are always satisfied when we come here. The service is good. Your main course is separately plated but rice, chips and vegetables are family style. There is a full bar and also great sangria that you can get by the pitcher. They are kid friendly and the dining room also has a divider and they do private parties.
