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

    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.
