The restaurant is quite small, which adds character, and the staff were very nice. It has a calm atmosphere, but not pretentious. The food was high quality and delicious. It's definitely a gem! My husband and I had a wonderful experience here. The prices were also very fair. :) I highly recommend visiting this place if you are in the... More

My husband and I ate at Villella's the night before New Years Eve. We called ahead and made a reservation, which I HIGHLY recommend that you do. There are only 7 tables at this small restaurant. The food was very good. My husband ordered chicken penne with vodka sauce, which was cooked to perfection. I ordered lobster ravioli with a... More

My husband and I tried this place while in Niagra Falls on our anniversary. The restaurant was very small. The server was friendly. The food was very authentic. My lasagna was a little cold. The tea was instant. I feel it was a little overpriced for the atmosphere.

Hi, went with a few friends in November 2016. We had four entrees and I sampled a bit of everyones plate. I tried baked ziti (penne to the NON U.S. reader), veal and chicken, and spaghetti and meatballs. THe pasta was cooked perfectly and the sauce tastes like homemade (no canned stuff here). Obviously it is hard to have a... More

A few of us came down from Toronto to have American Thanksgiving with our friend. The food and atmosphere was excellent. Obviously we were almost the only people there because it was Thanksgiving. The manager Angelo was extremely accommodating and helpful. I had the chicken parmigiana with capellini (angel hair) pasta with red sauce. It was excellent. Believe me, it... More

Small space with 8 tables with one guy and a Eastern European/Russian girl running it when I came here to eat dinner. I had my order taken which was a Chicken Picatta and waited a while. It seems like the chef forgot to make my meal as the waitress had to remind the chef to tell him what I had... More

Very small but quaint eatery. Food was very good! Family friendly. Get a reservation or go early/late - fills up quickly. Great service!

So saddened to see the decline in service and food quality at one of my favorite local restaurants. The restaurant was staffed by only the chef and 1 waiter and despite the fact that it was Monday night, the small restaurant was full and there were people waiting in the hallway. Thank goodness we called for reservations for our group... More

This is a very small place with eight tables two men running it. They weren't really cheerful. I can't say how the food is because we never got any. We did get our drinks and a salad that wasn't too fresh. The waiter came back after about twenty minutes and asked us what we had ordered. He lost our order... More

This little place is tucked unassumingly in a small motel. It has a classic menu - way advanced beyond "red sauce or white sauce" but comfort food all the same. For those who like to leave their cars parked, it is actually a pleasant walk from the cluster of Falls hotels. The entrees are somewhat conventional, but there is some... More
