One of the STRONGEST – It's a surprise indeed...never had a bad meal there...never had bad service, even when the bar is busy on a WED. afternoon happyhour ! this one is obviously ignored in Memphis or memphians simply don't recognize good food when they have it ! Try it !
X-Racer – I have been a patron of Villa Castrioti for many years. I am European, have traveled the World extensively (Favourite destination - Italy) and have dined in many a fine restaurant. Villa Castrioti has the best food in the area. When I visit, it feels like I am going home. For those that think the best Italian food, in Memphis, is Brooklyn Bridge or any of the Grisanti establishments, then good for you, but... if you want REAL Italian cuisine, visit Villa Castrioti. There is no comparison. Great wine selection also. Check out the Tommasi or Bertani Amarone...
You're Missing Out - Seriously – For the past four years, I have had the pleasure of eating at the very best restaurants from Memphis to New Orleans. However, I find the Villa Castrioti profoundly _stunning_ in the quality of their fare - and no one seems to know this! If you wish to sample the best seafood in the Memphis/Cordova area with an Albanian/Italian flair - go here. Also- I grew up in New York - so TRUST me - try their pizza. Say what you will about any restaurant on this list - JUST TRY THIS ONE ONCE...
Most Underated Restaurant – Just because a restaurant is in a strip mall, does not mean it's not good. Owner/operator restaurants are becoming fewer and fewer, so please take the opportunity to enjoy this family owned restaurant. Every year I see awards given to Italian restaurants in Memphis with no notice of Villa Castriotti, and the restaurants that win the awards pale in comparison to this one. Thanks to Adam and his wife for all the hard work they have done to provide Memphians with an excellent dining experience.
Dining at Villa – My husband and I always very much enjoy dining at Villa. They have very fresh seafood and a great wine list. We always have Stephanie wait on us and she does an excellent job. This is not the kind of place you should go to if you are in a hurry, it's not supposed to be a quick dining experience, if you are looking to get in and out I suggest you try the McDonald's out in the parking lot of Trinity Commons.
