It's like having dinner at Grandmas, not everything on the menu is available. In most cases the server is your chef, or the chef is your server. Dishes are made with thoughtfulness and they try to accommodate your special requests and will improvise on the spot. Very cozy place with authentic homemade food. Worth the stop in Niagara Falls.

I came here based on reviews and a picture of the spaghetti frutti di mar (fruits of the sea). This restaurant is in a hotel and the indoor pool is directly across the hall, so there is the faint but ever present smell of chlorine in the restaurant. The one waiter could not have been more disinterested in me or... More

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.

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!
