Great Pizza and Good Customer Service – Love the Shrimp Parmigian Entree and Margherita Pizza. Every time that I've eaten here I've had a great time and service has been wonderful.
Meh! Bay Ridge in the Slope! – I too was put off by the garish decor and harsh lighting, who wouldn't be?
The food is exceeding average, like I made it. In fact I think I could dupe most of their dishes. It's that pedestrian. Nothing, nothing stood out with the exception of the slightly interesting pizza.
The service is soooo slow at times and the general feel is not hospitable. There's maybe 2 good waitressess in the place. The waiters are stunning bad, they usually stood around chatting with themselves.
I didn't understand why this place was jammed either until I saw the crowd that was in there.
The place is also lousy with kids, not a plus when you're trying to eat.
Been there twice and must say the afternoon visit was much better.
Editorial Review – Neopolitan pizza chain entices Park Slope with wood-fired pies topped with house-made mozzarella.
awesome food – this place is above average in a neighborhood that trades on its name and not entirely on good food. i have eaten here a few times and each time i have been stunned by the quality of food and service. i thoroughly enjoyed the sausage and broccoli rabe sandwich. the sausage was great, but the rabe was sublime. it's not easy to prepare this properly, but it seems they have it down to a science. my wife enjoyed her mother's day chicken parm, and wendy went crazy for the foccacia that they deliver promptly upon being seated. charming hostess, attentive waitstaff...this place is running on all cylinders.
Horribly rude liars – I've eaten at La Villa many times, always ordering a pizza. Not great, but convenient to where I live. The most recent time, I ordered a pasta with prosciutto. They brought me pasta with ground meat. I tried to send it back, but they REFUSED to take it. They told me that this was how the "prepared" prosciutto at their restaurant. The waiter was terribly rude, the owner raised his voice at us, and my girlfriend was near tears from the way they treated her. You will not get your water re-filled, even when waving wildly for attention. Waiters are blind to any needs, and "forget" stuff constantly. My order has been messed up many times, but this time the rudeness was inexcusable. The owner changed his story many times to explain why they wouldn't take back the pasta, bold-faced lying to us. Intollerable.
Best Bread Anywhere! – I love this place! Great food, great location! If you're waiting they treat you to slices of garlic bread and pizza. The bread basket is to-die-for. Great place to take a group.
WAY TO GO – I m in the restaurant business i have seen it all but la villa just top them all .
The attitude when you order delivery is unbelievable ,they made me feel like they had too much business and didn't need mine .Stupid i was i order! What a mistake 1 pizza 1 pasta and 1 app 67 dollars but of course that include 5 dollars del charge the pizza was ok at best pasta overcooked and app way to salty and waiting 1hour for this i ll never order from them again that is for sure. Like i say i m in this businessand i have learned from them what to never do when i open my place .They take people for idiots and that will bite them back in the behind eventually soon
Where are some of you eating? – I've been eating at La Villa about 3 times a month since they opened, and I think that some of you must be eating in a different restaurant from the one that I go to. Bad service? Burnt pizza? Oily food? You have got to be kidding! Once there was a problem with my order and I let my waiter know. The dish was taken away at once, no questions asked, with an apology. A few minutes later the newly cooked dish came to my table. The waiter made sure it was done right. One of the owners apologized to me... and did not charge me for the dish. I was already a fan of La Villa, but that made me feel like it was "my restaurant".
Oh, the first poster "EH"... it's not a "pizza joint", just like LeBarnadin isn't a "fish shack". It's a pizza restaurant, that's why the "no slices" policy.
EH – Food here is good, BUT they tend to burn the pizzas. Also they tend to use too much salt. I almost always call and pick up the order and they consistently get it wrong. Almost like they forget what is supposed to go in their dishes. Also dining in you get more than picking up or having it delivered (bread with some dishes, extra chicken etc.) Yet it cost the same. Speaking of cost, they are expensive for lunch. $9-$13 for heros plus tax. Pizzas about 20 bucks.
Again the food is good, but nothing exceptional. To me it's causal dining, nothing more. Like a glorified pizza joint that does not sell by the slice. Also parking stinks, but that goes for pretty much any place in Park Slope.
The Best Value Park Slope Offers – This is my favorite Italian restaurant in all of New York City. You can certainly find restaurants that offer a superior "fine dining" experience, but for superb food at reasonable prices, La Villa can't be beat. My wife and I will usually only order one "primi" and one "secondi" and split them, as they tend to offer large portions. Our agreed favorite is the orrechiete with sausage and chicken (usually the waiters are kind enough to split the dish in half so you get to sample both meats). The eggplant parmesan is also great, and my friend who grew up in Manhattan claims that no one serves a better baked ziti with meatsauce. The decor is nice, but more casual than "fine dining." This is as good as neighborhood restaurants come. Appetizers are somewhere around $7 each and the main dishes are between $11 and $16.
