Villa Vespa is great - the staff and owner could not be more friendly! The food is moderately priced and a very authentic. We will usually get the large family sized lasagna and freeze half, saving it for a later dinner option. A Very Good rating because it is not a sit down restaurant. However, they will heat up your...

The women who helped us choose our dinner were sincerely nice and friendly... and passionate about their food! They guaranteed we would like our dinner and they were right. I found it a bit on the pricey side for ready made take out but I guess that's Lake Placid for ya. I would recommend to friends and return.

Have tried regular lasagna, seafood lasagna, homemade pasta sauce and more and it has all been great! The owner/chef is very friendly and the take-out setting is convenient. They have several options in the refrigerator and the freezer so you can choose to either heat something up for dinner that night or save it in the freezer for a day... More

After hiking we hit Villa Vespa to stock up on a dinner we could warm up at our leisure at our accommodation. We were amazed and pleased at the variety of foods available to take out and warm up. Our group of four included two vegetarians, one pescatarian and a meat-lover and we were able to find delicious food to... More

Wow! We felt like we were at a relative's house. The owner (a wonderful lady) helped us out and made sure we had everything needed for our dinner later that night. We tried the Lasagna and also the Ziti. That way we could split the two and enjoy the best of both. We were so impressed when we ate these... More

Villa Vespa, in Lake Placid, NY, used to be a mouth-watering Italian restaurant not too many years ago. Now it's a mouth-watering Italian takeout restaurant. Everything is prepared from scratch the old-fashioned way. Like Mama used to make. Kim Vespa and crew are superb cooks and warm-hearted people. Check it out!

Villa Vespa is a great place to pick up tasty, home-made, authentic italian food (delicious pasta, lasagne, eggplant parmesan, and soups!) that have been chilled or frozen for an easy meal later in the day/week. If you're staying in or around Lake Placid (and you have a kitchen for re-heating of food) there's no better place to go for an... More

My son has an allergy to wheat and it can be challenging to find places to eat when you are travelling. Villa Vespa had a variety of wheat-free pasta selections and they prepared a delicious meal for my son. The food was terrific and we went back every night we were in Lake Placid. Everyone there was extremely helpful and... More

Lovely people and delicious food. Was nice to get prepared dinners to make in our hotel suite - affordable and romantic. Lasagna was some of the best i've ever had, same with the meat sauce. The meatballs were a mis-step - skip those but definitely give the rest of their menu a try. You won't be dissapointed!

Villa Vespa is a takeout establishment that previously was a very popular restaurant in Lake Placid. Fresh daily entrees; homemade sauces (by the jar as well) and fresh made pastas. Can't beat it for the price. They fed me July, August, September.....Love them!.
