I took my mother to La Villetta. I had telephone ahead and explained that we had an expired Groupon which we planned to use for the amount paid "which never expires". When we arrived there was a some question of whether we were in the right restaurant because some patrons had in the past come to the wrong restaurant with groupons. And the groupon was expired so the manager had to be called to verify it's use causing some embarassment to myself and my mother as other patrons looked on and heard the loud voices of the staff debating us using the groupon "for the paid amount". When the food came I got the feeling we were served "leftovers smothered in tomato sauce. Too bad, we have tried to patronize this neighborhood restaurant through the years hoping to keep them afloat but I think they are a lost cause.

The hardest part was trying to find a good table as they all were located in great areas. The food was exceptional as was the service. Prices were reasonable.

A big fly buzzed our table the entire time - not appetizing. Pasta tasted like dried grocery store pasta - I could have made that at home. Skimpy boccinccini salad - 1 small tomato, small bit of boc, hardly enough balsamic vinegar. Desert menu was spoken, not printed, which is difficult when the server has a heavy tho charming accent. Desert selection was boring, I think!

From Our Editors

Ladles rain down rose sauce, cream sauce, tomato sauce, tomato-cream sauce, curry cream sauce, spicy tomato sauce, and tomato concasse, and all of it is whisked by hand. In the 40-plus years since La Villetta Ristorante served up its first plate of pasta, diners have come to rely on the eatery for home-cooked takes on classic Italian favorites and the sauces that give them their signature flavors. Prawns, scallops, mussels, and sausage team up with the sauce to distinguish fettucine and linguine. The entree roster is as deep as it is saucy—veal or lamb osso bucco, chicken parmigiana, and grilled fish provide more protein than a lecture on amino acids.
