love it – i checked out villa christina for my wedding ceremony & reception and I love the place! all the people are great to work with, too
Excellent! – I went to Villa Christina for the first time for their Easter brunch yesterday and it was just delicious!!! The lamb, the shrimp, the seafood salad, the salad bar... I just could not get enough of anything! I missed the pasta, which my husband is still raving about. The service was outstanding. Our main person was pleasant, he explained the food well*, and was conversational without being overbearing. All servers that came by were pleasant as well. I starred the food explanation because he mistakenly told my vegetarian mother that something had no meat in it and we later found out it did. He apologized profusely. Thankfully, she is not allergic and all is well. The grounds are beautiful, I just cannot wait to go back!!!
Delicious food, wonderful service – Villa Christina was a little harder to find than some, located in the center of a business park, but well worth the trip. My sister and I visited on an extremely cold Wednesday evening in January. Except a group of 4 businessmen and a couple of people at the bar, we had the public part of the restaurant to ourselves.
The service was wonderfully attentive and the food was delicious and beautifully presented. My sister and I ordered the calamari appetizer, which was huge. The breading was light and the calamari tender. I had the Rustic Bean soup and my sister had the Rucola (baby arugula salad). The soup was good and very filling, my sister raved about the salad. For our entrees, I had Chilean sea bass and sis had lamb. The sea bass was done perfectly, tender and flaky, with a flavorful, but not overpowering crust. The lamb was very tasty with a savory sauce. After all this food, I was not planning on dessert, but our waiter brought a complimentary chocolate lava cake. This dessert, with warm liquid chocolate inside, was decadent and delicious.
All in all, this restaurant reminds me of one of my local favorites and will definitely be on my short list anytime I visit Atlanta.
Great staff! – I recently bet with Deborah to do a tour for a possible location for my ceremony and reception. SHE WAS FABULOUS! I have been looking at places for a few weeks now and never did I have such AMAZING customer service. She was a delight to speak with and really made me feel welcome and at home in such a beautiful location. She treated me , my fiance and my mother with the up most respect, and was extremely knowledgeable about the location as well as weddings in and of itself. My father is a very busy buisness man who deals with people all the time he deals with people from all walks of life and has seen it all , and for my father to confront me later on that day and say I am extremely impressed with Villa Christina and Deborah ..to me that is huge!!!! If you are thinking about Villa Christina DO NOT HESITATE! I looked and looked and wasn't that impressed with many places in Atlanta or the people we met with until i went to villa Christina. You wont be disappointed and I know you will love Deborah!
Poor customer service – We decided to have our wedding reception at Villa Christina at Perimeter Summit and Lauren was in charge of the wedding. She was very friendly and helpful up until the day we completed the payment for the event. After that, it was imposible to contact her. Initial agreement was that she will be present at the wedding to make sure everything is up to our agreement. We arrived on the day of the wedding to find out that she already left and had somebody else in charge, a person we never met and had no information about what we agreed with Lauren. Everything was a fiasco, we were supposed to have the bridal room on the top floor, she promised us a room where the bride and bridesmaids can get dressed and have the bride come down the beautiful stairs, which would have made a great entrance. Without being informed, the bridal room was moved to the groun floor, in a room full of windows, no privacy. I, as the bride, had to get dressed in the restroom, an area completely inapropiate for the importance of that day. We felt used, as soon as she colected the payment from us, no customer service was provided. Also we agreed on a payment program, having to pey 50% before the wedding and the other 50% on the day of the wedding, but she decided to change this also and sent us a disrespectful letter 2 days before the wedding, saying that we either pay her immediately or the contract is null and we will have to find a different place for our event. I work in customer service bussiness and this is not a proper way of handling a situation like this. The place is beautiful but the customer service is inexistent. We will not recomend this place in the future and I will never stop regreting my choice to have the wedding at a place with such poor management.
Great place for a party! – Villa Christina does an excellent job of helping to plan & execute a party to remember! The event planners (especially Gillian) are wonderful & really help you plan the perfect event. The food is what they are known for, and the event menu has something to please even the most picky eaters. Presentation and service are excellent - nothing is overlooked or ignored when preparing for an event. I have never had a more positive experience at a restaurant in Atlanta, nor have I had an event turn out better than the one I had at Villa Christina. Use them with confidence for your special events, and never turn down an opportunity to dine at the restaurant!
An opulent atmosphere and expensive Italian-inflected fare are the hallmarks of this Northside banquet house. – In Short
The interior of this well hidden but elegant Italian villa is a neon conflagration of Floridian motifs. More popular for wedding receptions and corporate functions, Villa Christina's main dining room is rarely crowded. At its best with meatier entrees like duck breast and grilled veal chop, the kitchen also features a range of salads, risottos and pastas. Warm, gooey chocolate cake is a winning dessert.
Corporate Business meeting – We went with a small group and I found this place to be conducive to business. The pasta was great, the wait staff awesome and attentive. I probably would not return even though I had a great visit...I just prefer my Italian food and restaurants more intimate.
Good food, not romantic atmosphere – I was a little disappointed after planning a romantic diinner here. Although the food was delicious, I found it to be too bright and the service a bit hurried (salad delivered before finished appetizer, etc.) to really make a special dinner.
Delicioso! – I adore this restaurant. The service is always friendly and prompt, and the ambience is romantic. The food is wonderful, from the arugula salad to the lobster with gnocchi to the molten chocolate cake. It is a bit expensive, but worth every penny. They have an extensive wine list as well.
