I really like this restaurant. The sauce is very tasty and the cheeses are excellent. I must say, the bread they give you before the meal is amazing!! The staff is very, very friendly, the atmosphere is inviting, the place is clean, and you can always catch a glimpse of the game on the television, which hangs silently over the open kitchen. I am a pizza freak and so I don't take reviews of pizza lightly. In my opinion this is one of the very best Sicilian slices in NYC. Their oven is fantastic!! I don't dislike the regular pie, but if you do want pizza, opt for the Sicilian - you will NOT be disappointed. However, know this: the pizza is not cheap. It will cost over $20 for a full pie. It's not terribly overpriced, but just not cheap. Also, they often have specials - if they offer the lentil soup definitely go for it.

La Villa is our go-to place for excellent Italian food and a great family atmosphere. When we order out we mostly get the pizza and it is easily the best in the neighborhood. Eating in is fun and the menu is full of tasty dishes made with very fresh ingredients. We eat in, or order out, at least once a week. It is not the cheapest option, but an excellent one.

I went here on a Saturday night at 8pm and had to wait only about 10 minutes for a table for 2. The sizzling hot, crisp at the bottom onion bread that comes out (on the house) is irresistable. The wine selection is moderately priced & has some great reds that go well with the food. We ordered a special appetizer of fresh mozzarella with sauteed mushroom bruschetta which was fresh, melty, buttery & wonderful. I followed up with the papardelle bolognese. They use fresh pasta, which is melt in your mouth, and the bolognese isn't too heavy or laden with cream... just meaty enough to provide texture to the flat ribbons of papardelle. My only 2 complaints (SLIGHT) are that the atmosphere is pizzeria-ish, not intimate enough for a romantic date being that it is bright & a moderate noise level. Secondly, the dessert, we ordered the chocolate tart, came out as cold as it was in the freezer case and the crust was compromised...however, the taste was great. The only area for improvement would probably be touching their dessert slices with a little bit of heat before serving so you don't get that gummy texture, but otherwise the pasta here is fabulous & highly reccomended. I will come back here and try more.

I was honestly shocked at how delicious the pizza was! We had a margarita pizza with sausage and then a white pie with caramelized onions delivered. Both were ridiculously good.

Eating at the restaurant is great. I highly recommend sitting on the stools where you can see the ovens. The free bread is awesome. Delivery is good but the prices seem to be much higher than when I go to the restaurant.

The service is spectacular. The food is excellent. I went there with my family about 9 of us. It was sooo good that my boyfriend and I went back the next day, just the two of us. We were treated with the same amount of hospitality as the night before. I highly recommend this place.
