Very bad business run a very bad businessman. For starters, I've eaten here before...the food is bland, unoriginal, and overpriced. It was also a super long...read more
A Great First Experience: For my first brief visit to Philly, I could not have asked for a better experience. Our waitress was absolutely darling and made sure we were taken care of. She was even nice enough to let me get a picture with her. Being from Seattle,…read more
Absolutely Outstanding: Excellent! Really well prepared simple Italian American food.. Had chicken cacciatore, escarole with garlic and oil - even had 2 meatballs for good measure... All great - everyone I was with enjoyed as well.. The only people who will…read more
Major dissapointment!: Villa di Roma restaurant is like a trashy Bollywood movie -- you know the ones with a poor beginning, a lousy middle and a stupid ending. Located on South 9th St in Philadelphia, Villa di Roma restaurant serves some of the most tasteless…read more
Excellent Italian : Food is never other than great. I first dined there is the early 90's and have returned every time I am in Philly, which is at least 6 times yearly, with several trips to the Villa. Everyone who has gone there with me loved the place. It…read more
Perfect traditional Italian food: We live in the neighborhood and VDR is our favorite -- we can't get enough. We keep saying "We should really try a new place..." but once you get a taste of it it's all you're in the mood for. We love it. I get the same dish every…read more
Liquid cra_k: Growing up in an Italian household we NEVER went out for Italian food. It's just something we didn't do. When you grow up w/ "home mades" that's it. That is until Villa di Roma. My wife introduced me to it at the time we were dating and…read more
From a man who knows restaurants: Some reviews on here are sadly from people who wouldn't know good crusine if smacked em in the head. Here is the scoop, this is a fine neigborhood place. Its not romantic candlelit place with soft music in the background. The food is…read more
Classic South Philly Italian keeps families coming back.: In Short
No-frills decor and waitresses who call everybody "Hon" make sure that the experience is all about the food. Families from the neighborhood fill the room along with suburban stragglers. It's South Philly Italian fare at…read more
Want authentic Italian? You're going to the right place: By far, one of the best Italian restaurants I've been to. No frills, great food, little bit of 'tude in the waitresses, but who can blame them? The place is always packed. Extremely reasonable prices. Went with a group of people and…read more
Cash only ARE YOU KIDDING?- and shady area: Menu was adequate but did not take credit cards and as travelers that is essential. We traveled a distance to get there on a recommendation and were disappointed with the area and the cash only business. We doubt we will return with the…read more
Lisa: I was looking for reviews on a restaurant down the street from here and saw this review. I cant believe that anyone gave this place a bad review. I was there with family in June for a b-day party dinner. There were 11 of us and the bill…read more
While out of town- felt right at home: While visiting from Seattle, we ducked in out of the cold for a drink and stayed for several.... had so much fun, we came back the next night for drinks & dinner. Really enjoyed the family/neighborhood atmosphere. The Villa salad we…read more
South Philly: Nothing more to say. This is a true South Philadelphia Italian restaurant.The wait staff is not always friendly. The food is always great.Make sure you get the fried Asparagus here and don't forget an order of gnocchi for the tableread more
The Extras: They do an excellent job with big parties of people, even quasi-rowdy bachelor and bachelorette parties. They will create a fixed price menu for you and your gang that won't break the bank.read more
What To Drink: Remember, this is old-school Bella Vista, not Old City. There's no Vox vodka, no microbrews and there's a very good chance your Chianti or Merlot will be served chilled.read more
Italian food: Im an Italian girl but just wasn't loving it. The red sauce when I went 4 years ago was enough to keep me form staying away. Atleast it was affordable. read more

Good Old Fashioned Home Cooking!!!: I've never had a bad meal there ...ever. Good Italian food. Plus it's South Phjilly! Where else?! read more
Mom and Pop Restaurant: This restaurant has been around for decades. Mom and Pop are in the kitchen. Good food always. The wait staff is not very attentive though. Italian specialties. Parking a premium.read more
Half carafe of jug wine $18.00 REDICULOUS: Food great, service great, atmosphere - it is what it is wonderful. The wine price brings it way down... SAD for a wonderful place like this to be dragged down by high priced cheap wine. read more
Know Before You Go: Reservations are accepted every night except Saturday nights--the busiest night of the week.read more
Here in the Italian Market, where red sauce is still called gravy, Villa di Roma is an institution. Regulars come for the fine mussels marinara, the varied pastas and topnotch veal dishes (the meat comes from the butcher across the way).…read more
Nothing Special: Stopped in one afternoon with 2 others for lunch, service was good but food was just ok nothing exceptional going on here. If I am going to eat out for dinner I want to stick to a restaurant that is consistently very good.read more
A Good Meal Every Time: I have been to Villa over a dozen times and each time it is good, solid Italain food. I recommend this place to everybody and it usually one of my top choices when dining out down the city. Love the Bella Buca.read more
Classic: Staff is authentic South Philly, food is authentic Italian. Menu doesnt change, and that is a good thing. I think Spaghetti and Meatballs are the best around. Some dishes are a little heavy on the butter, but who cares- richer the…read more
