My wife and I spent a long day in Burlington, which included lunch. By the time we returned to our hotel it was nearly 7. We wanted dinner, but close by. This little gem was less than 2 miles away. The menu is excellent. All the usual Italian dishes, wood fired pizzas etc, however they also offer lesser known dishes... More

Mixed reviews. Small restaurant tucked away in a shopping center. My other half had carbonara, and loved it! I had smoked alfredo dinner that had heavy garlic and onion flavor, just a little strange. Since I like garlic, it was not bad. It was a quiet atmosphere, bar was also quiet. Candle lite was nice. Pricing was standard. Wait staff... More

This was a convenient spot to meet up with friends and we were very happy with our fresh pasta, salad,wine and gelato for dessert. Everything was delicious and the space is very charming, bright and comfortable; a great place to talk and linger over our meal. I highly recommend it.

After reading some good reviews of that restaurant we decided to have dinner there last week as we visited Shelburne. I had the mushroom risotto with scallops and shrimps and the Brussels sprouts as appetizer. The Brussels sprouts were good but too salted. The risotto was tasteless, the three scallops were good and I thought the three shrimps might taste... More

Both the food and the service were excellent, the wine selection was pretty good, and the cherry on top was the home made gelato for desert

Restaurant was cheerful, clean, American-Italian. Wife and I had a large (18" !) pizza called La Villa Special. Plentiful, fresh ingredients on a wood-fired thin crust. Very tasty. Had to take about half of it home, it was that big. Good service, reasonable price. 5 stars.

The food was good, the service friendly even though we were late, only the wine (Nero d'Avola) was dissapointing.

We were referred to this very out of the way place by a wonderful lady at the Christmas Shop just down the road. Good food, but hardly outstanding. Decent prices and service. Ice cream shop right next door!

A good, warm place for a well made martini or nice glass of wine followed by a light meal (their pear and Gorgonzola salad and a shared pizza) or a full dinner of soup, original pasta dishes and dessert. They strike a perfect balance between innovative specials and reliable standbys. Excellent value all around.

We found this little bistro on trip advisor and were not disappointed! The food was excellent. I had the shrimp pasta with tomatoes and fresh herbs. My partner had the steak sandwich. Both were excellent and portion sized just right. Will definitely eat here again whenever we travel thru Burlington.

Thank Sharon P
