We ordered out since we were staying at the hotel next door. The Italian salads were tasty, and the pepperocini were very good, but for $4.60 not worth the price. The restaurant is counting on the pizza for a signature item, and I will give that the ingredients are good, but the secret to any pizza is the crust. This... More

Hotel clerk recommended The Villa and we are glad she did. The parking lot was full when we arrived for an early dinner (always a good sign). The service was wonderful and so was the food. Can't go wrong with eggplant Parmesan and lasagna Florentine (although that was a first). Salad and bread were good as well (go for the... More

I have not had the pizza yet, which I hear is good, but the pasta staples have all been of a good home cooked quality. This place is nothing to fancy, no white table cloths, but they dont act like it is either. Prices are ok, if maybe a little high for the quantity and quality of the food, but... More

Good place to eat in walking distance to our hotel. Food was excellent from the stuffed mushrooms to the veal parmesan.

It's been almost 7 years for our last attempted visit. Twice before we had visited only to be seated and ignored for 16 minutes, thus we walked out twice. Tonight we thought we would give The Villa another try. 100% improvement. Seated promptly and server was there shortly. Great service and good good. Prepared fresh and served hot. Nice to... More

I walked in, we were told to sit wherever, but then told not to sit in that area. We got our drinks, the soda was flat and watered down. We received our appetizers and the cheese bread was literally a melted piece of deli cheese on it. The bread tasted not so good. The food was alright. The lasagna sauce... More

In reading the reviews, I can only assume It was an off-night. My visit started with ordering at the register to take the food back to my hotel room. The gentleman was polite but when I asked what pasta was served with the Eggplant Parmesan, he began to tell me about the soup and salad. Twice I asked about the... More

When we are busy at work, but want a quick / good place to eat, we go to the Villa. The staff is friendly. The food is good. We get in and out very quickly. We are recognized and welcomed when we walk in the door. Only downside is that there are no specials. The menu is always the same.... More

Due to evacuating our condo thanks to Hurricane Matthew we stay next door to this Italian restaurant. When I said everything good I meant just that. Don't let the conservative outside bother you. They have been there for 40 years. Step through the door and you are in another place. The art work is fantastic. But to go on... The... More

My family and I had to evacuate the Hilton Head Island area because of hurricane Mathew. We stayed at the Doubletree hotel and needed to get out after several days in our room. After reviewing Trip Advisor for restaurants we found this one. It had great reviews and was close to hotel. I had the Fettuccini Alfredo and it was... More
