Walking into Villa Roma brought greetings from the staff. After we were seated, we witnessed the same behavior every time the door opened. And we noted that many of the folks through the door were returning diners who were known by the staff. A very good sign.
As first-timers, good reviews brought us in. Our choices included a small pizza (not small at all) and an entree of scampi on linguini. On the menu, the small pizza carries a 12" size note. NOT! We received a 15" pie liberally covered in sausage, pepperoni and olives. Delicious!
However, there was a problem. Not fond of pepperoni, my wife asked to have it removed from half the pizza. When the pie arrived, one half had ONLY pepperoni. We each took a slice from the other side. Sensing some discomfort, the proprietor, Henri, inquired and immediately swept the pie off the table, replacing it some minutes later with the correct assembly. And, he brought back the incorrect one in a box, two slices missing.
The scampi entree was quite generous. The kitchen split the dish into two bowls which we had trouble consuming, not for the taste (the shrimp were big and plump, perfectly cooked) but for the quantity. Lots! The linguini was al dente and somewhat unusual in size, sort of like spaghettini but flat instead of round. As a single entree, I doubt I could have consumed this bowl of decadent deliciousness even as a strapping 20 year old.
After a complimentary sampler of tiramisu (excellent), we left Villa Roma with two pizza boxes, full tummies and good feelings. Thanks, Henri. We'll be back.
