Villetta

We have tried Villetta for dinner twice and it seemed like a lunch experience should definitely be on our agenda.

The patio is a lovely place to dine, particularly during the day.

White Wine from their list

Quattro forrmaggi pizza with wild arugula, shallot jam and tomato. The four cheeses were goat cheese, taleggio, crescenza and parmesan. The cheese was deliciously gooey and the crust perfect.

Me – Steamed Baja Mussels with white wine, braised fennel, tomato confit, white beans and focaccia breadcrumbs. Chef Pippa handles ingredients perfectly – the seafood broth was textbook perfect – she never takes short cuts and it shows. The mussels were plump and also executed perfectly.

John – Lamb polpettine and tomato gravy

Served with mini balkies

You are in charge of putting your sandwich together and John loved the tomato gravy so much he asked for extra sauce.

This was a leisurely lunch in a lovely setting with delicious food — a great addition to Brentwood.
