After hiking we hit Villa Vespa to stock up on a dinner we could warm up at our leisure at our accommodation. We were amazed and pleased at the variety of foods available to take out and warm up. Our group of four included two vegetarians, one pescatarian and a meat-lover and we were able to find delicious food to... More

Wow! We felt like we were at a relative's house. The owner (a wonderful lady) helped us out and made sure we had everything needed for our dinner later that night. We tried the Lasagna and also the Ziti. That way we could split the two and enjoy the best of both. We were so impressed when we ate these... More

Villa Vespa, in Lake Placid, NY, used to be a mouth-watering Italian restaurant not too many years ago. Now it's a mouth-watering Italian takeout restaurant. Everything is prepared from scratch the old-fashioned way. Like Mama used to make. Kim Vespa and crew are superb cooks and warm-hearted people. Check it out!

Villa Vespa is a great place to pick up tasty, home-made, authentic italian food (delicious pasta, lasagne, eggplant parmesan, and soups!) that have been chilled or frozen for an easy meal later in the day/week. If you're staying in or around Lake Placid (and you have a kitchen for re-heating of food) there's no better place to go for an... More

My son has an allergy to wheat and it can be challenging to find places to eat when you are travelling. Villa Vespa had a variety of wheat-free pasta selections and they prepared a delicious meal for my son. The food was terrific and we went back every night we were in Lake Placid. Everyone there was extremely helpful and... More

Lovely people and delicious food. Was nice to get prepared dinners to make in our hotel suite - affordable and romantic. Lasagna was some of the best i've ever had, same with the meat sauce. The meatballs were a mis-step - skip those but definitely give the rest of their menu a try. You won't be dissapointed!

Villa Vespa is a takeout establishment that previously was a very popular restaurant in Lake Placid. Fresh daily entrees; homemade sauces (by the jar as well) and fresh made pastas. Can't beat it for the price. They fed me July, August, September.....Love them!.

We were visiting Lake Placid and drove by the establishment. They have 2 little tables for eating there but their primary purpose is to have you take their delicious freshly prepared food home to heat up and eat. In our case, we took it back to our hotel and heated it in the microwave. The food was exceptionally good. I... More

We were not impressed with our restaurant experiences in Lake Placid, so we decided to try this place and finally had a good meal. Unfortunately we didn't have a proper stove in our motel room, just 2 burners and a microwave. Because of this we missed out on what seemed to be some wonderful meals choices. We opted for a...

Here's the scenario. You're in Lake Placid, a relatively expensive resort town. You don't want to blow your budget by always eating out, but you're on vacation and want something a lot better than a Stouffers frozen entree and a can of Campbell soup. What to do? Answer: go to Villa Vespa for great home-made food at half the price... More
