Was fortunate to be able to dine at the storied Villa Balsamo! The food was amazing and the owners were a delight. Since it is only open during track season, it was a very special experience- I look forward to making it an annual outing!

We had a wonderful experience. The waiter's (Michael) four course recommendations were perfect. The shrimp oregano appetizer, prosciutto pasta, and sea bass and veal entrees were great. As importantly, the martinis were perfect. Not a cheap date but a great experience.

Villa Balsamo Restaurant was busier than I though it would be for a non track season week night. The service was slow, food alright and prices high.

You won't find better Italian food within 100 miles of this restaurant! The service was excellent, and the ambiance is fantastic. Come here for your special occasions - you won't be disappointed. Be prepared to spend some $$.
