First time going to this place last night. Actually, I tried to go a couple weeks ago but it was only open for a dinner party. I did, however, see the menu and the prices were noticable cheaper than others in the area which piqued my interest.
The ambiance is quite good, and better than most of the other Italian restaurants in this area. It's buidling seems that it was actually built to be an Italian restaurant as it feels like a rustic house. The decor won't floor you, but it's certainly nice.
The serive was good, especially when it mattered. We were seated promptly, our drink request, food order and bread were all done quite quickly. I did notice that we were only asked how things were as we were eating once, but it did get busy - so they weren't lazy, and they were timely when it most mattered.
The value is VERY good. I am tempted to put 5, but won't go overboard. All the pasta dishes are right around $13 and the entrees at around $15-19, which prices it quite lower than many others in the area. The soups were a very low price and the appetizers were all under $10. I was curious about this to see if the food was a bit of a drop as well, considering that's barely more than White Spot, but...
The food was great. They brought out delicious bread, and the 1/2 litre of wine was very good (and only $12). I forget the plates' names, but mine was a penne in a tomato pesto with Italian sausage, bacon and onions. It was terrific, and only $13. The sauce was delicious, the pasta was fresh and firm and the meat was great quality. My wife had an even better plate and ordered chicken breast stuffed with prosciutto and mozzerella over a cream sauce. It normally includes veggies and potatos, but she opted for pasta and rose sauce instead. This was only $16 I think and was wonderful. We were too full (good portions) for desert, but will try next time.
I give a full recommendation to La Villetta. There may be slightly higher end places, but for this range, it's the best I've seen. Actually, it's better than many other Italian restaurants that charge 10-20% more than this place. Try it for yourself!
