It is a pleasure to dine at Villetta – everyone works hard to make sure you have a wonderful experience and you do.

BYO Champagne

Pizza Capriccio – tomato, mozzarella, artichokes, proscuitto cotto and mushrooms – this is a new pizza on the menu and it is delicious

BYO wine

Ahi tuna tartare with avocado, red onions, balsamic, toasted bread – my photographer dug in before snapping the picture – top grade tuna handled expertly

Paparadelle with wild mixed mushrooms, pancetta and sage – another winner – toothsome pasta and the mushrooms and pancetta a perfect addition

BYO wine

Grilled Lamb Chops with farro and eggplant caponata – this is a half portion!!!! Perfectly done lamb – rare, juicy and well-seasoned

Bottom line – a lovely meal served with panache

    Lizzie~wondering if you have ever had a bad meal there? I heard that not only was Pippa fired, but her replacement was as well, and one of their original fish suppliers (from back when they opened) used to rave about the place but when I mentioned it to her recently, she referred to it as “a mess.” Do you think that you possibly get treated with VIP status since they (I assume) recognize you? The last time I was there it was my dates pick and we had good food but there are some really bad reviews on Yelp so I get kinda nervous about suggesting it myself. Thanks for whatever insights you might share.

    Cynthia, the new executive chef is Enrico Glaudo. We knew him when he was the chef at Piero Selvaggio’s Primi. There was a period after Pippa left that the food was not as good. With Chef Glaudo they are back on track. Yes, they do know us and we do ask our server for suggestions on what to order.
