Yes my fellow restaurateurs we tried another, well to be honest we have been here before but never took the time to review. However, seeing as I had more time to oversee the Decor - service and Food I thought it would be a good opportunity to share my visit. Lets start off with the Good and slowly work our... More

Villa Amantea's has been a favorite Italian restaurant for families for many years. And once they open for the day at 4:00 PM it gets crowded and very busy, so just keep that in mind. We arrived at 4:30, and good thing, because when we were done, the lobby and dining rooms were crowded with diners waiting to be seated.... More

The best thing I can say is that the pizza is pretty good- if you take it home. Other than that, the restaurant is in terrible shape, the service is awful, and the rest of the fare is mediocre at best. I have had some of the worst service in my life here. I used to have better things to... More

I use to live in the area and remembered this bring a great place to eat. I was very disappointed when I returned last week. They haven't done anything with the decor in decades. Paper placemats with advertisements are tacky. Definitely needs a remodel. Service was fast and friendly. Food wasn't good. Very bland red sauce. I didn't even finish... More

This is the place to go! Great italian food with a calm, quiet atmosphere that allows for conversation - and isn't that why you went out for dinner after all? Note: Do try the meat ravioli, you'll go back for it again and again!

I finally had another dinner here, my third in about five years. I also had about a dozen luncheons during that period for various meetings, parties and funerals and I must say that those were good. However, the three times I been here for dinner off the menu I haven't been as satisfied. My most recent dinner was at the... More

This has to be the best pizza that I have ever had. Fresh crust, sauce, cheese, and the pepperoni's are awesome! Good balance of all ingredients (although I order extra cheese and pepperoni). The atmosphere is a little dark but yet it creates an intimate atmosphere. It is definitely worth the trip and you will not be disappointed!

I have to admit I was really surprised by this place - and not in a good way. This was our first time visiting this restaurant so we weren't sure what we were getting into once we walked in...It almost felt like a cave in the "foyer". Then you go through another set of doors to enter the main restaurant.... More

I'm sorry to hear we let you down this time. When you sit down at our table, I want everything from the food to the atmosphere to be perfect, and I'm sorry that wasn't your experience. Our chicken parm is one of our most popular dishes, and this isn't the kind of feedback I'm used to hearing about it. I'm... More

On a recent trip to area for a hockey tournament, a staff member at the Garden City ice arena recommended this restaurant. We were cheerfully greeted when we entered the door and when we said we were chilly from the rink, we were led to a table next to the fireplace. Very prompt service and a smiling waitress completed our... More
