The food is to die for. Those in the know, know. I am in the know :0 But a review is a review. You do your own.
Still one of my favorites – I love the service, salad bar, and I used to always get this one pork dish that was out of this world. I'm taking my wife there soon!
Food rules – Top notch Italian food here. Allot of history, especially those who know the original Volcano restaurant in Troy,NY. (these are the decedents here) The service really friendly but maybe not the polished upscale thing some people crave. Prices very reasonable too.
Upstate has a great one here. – Be conversational it says here...no..The food here is to be eaten. It is that good to hold off on the conversation.
Service really caring too.
Its Greeeeeeeeeeeat. – The best in the Albany area for Italian food anyway. Service very friendly. Not polished though, again in Italy it was.
It seems like this place is ingredient conscience. Most I my friends do not even know what that means. If they took a cooking vacation(like I did) there they would know exactly what I mean.
Mothers Day – On mothers day me and my family went to the Villa to celebrate mothers day. We had made reservations the week before very excited to try it. We have been to the villa many times before and love there food. We were seated rather quickly for such a busy day. There breakfast buffet was delicious, the french toast was with out a doubt the best ive ever had. THe salad bar had a great fruit assortment which was great for my daughter whom isnt that big on breakfast. I myslef loaded up on the roast beef and it was cooked just the way i like it. THey did a great job and i hope to see more brunch's like this!
Italian at another level. – The veal is to die for. Wife says the seafood is. She is brought up in Long Island and says this place rivals their best. Interesting.
bad version of Olive Garden or other chains – I was anxious to try this place bc of all the reviews. I am originally from Long Island and haven't enjoyed Italian food on the outside since I've been home. Yet, this place had great reviews so I gave it a chance. First off, even with a reservation I waited an hour. An hour to be seated at a restaurant with a SALAD BAR! No salads on the menu...not a classy place by any means. Who still does the salad bar unless it's a fast food restaurant?? Secondly, the food was bad. We had to pour salt for flavor on the pasta and my cousins chicken was rubbery. The service was beyond poor. Waitress barely came around and when she did we were rushed. So many better places to eat!
