    The food was very good, service timely. If you like expresso after dinner you’ll have to get it elsewhere. Villa Di Roma does not offer expresso. I found that very unusual for an Italian Restaraunt.

    From the sassy server to the delicious food this place is exactly what you expect from a restaurant in the Italian market.

    I pop in for a meal every time I am in town. They have the best meatballs in town but you cannot go wrong with anything on the menu.

    Large portions. Hearty meals but not really great. Do not recommend over other Italian restaurants in the city.

    Shrimp Marsala. Delish! And John C Reilly came in for lunch while we were there, so that was cool.

    You have to get the Shrimp Scampi and spend the extra $3 for the pasta on the entree. Also Lorraine is the best waitress ever, she really makes you feel at home. Tip her well

    Chicken livers aren't usually thought of as Italian fare, but the chicken livers Romano (brown sauce) is one of the best dishes I've had anywhere!

    The archetype of the no-nonsense South Philly Italian waitress may have been born at this Italian Market landmark amid the letterboard menus, brimming glasses of chianti and plates of giant meatballs.

    Rumor has it that a certain Philly-based restauranteur tried booking his personal holiday party at Villa. The family-owned establishment politely declined; they didn't want to disappoint the regulars.
