Always the best. The bar, foot and service always top notch. A staple in Rochester since my Dad and mom took us as kids.

My daughters, myself and my mom went here for dinner on a Tuesday evening around 4:30pm. At that time, it was quiet so we didn't have to worry about waiting for a table (if you haven't dined here before it is a quaint little place so waiting for a table after 5:30 is a norm.) I had the greens, beans... More

No power at the homestead...so we decided a nice hot meal was way to go. No reservations..Saturday nite...7pm or so...15 min wait at the bar with friendly bartender while everybody at bar compared notes on which town had the worst damage from the wind storm. 1 glass of wine later and we were seated. Excellent waitress....fast service....all the staff was... More

Had dinner with the parents and siblings and significant others, What a great meal! Calamari was the right way to kick this night off, the wife and I split chicken parm and chicken french, another clutch decision. Lots of fun, service was great, food was even better.

Happened to be staying just next door and l had dinner there the last night I was in town. We knew there would be a wait but the bartender was great and the atmosphere at the bar made the wait enjoyable. Our food was great I had the eggplant part and my mom had the chicken french - both were... More

I'm a stickler for Italian food- my father is off the boat from Italy, as are my mothers parents. We do the whole Sunday Sauce dinner, etc, etc (you get the point) So basically what i'm telling you is I don't eat at Olive Garden. THAT BEING SAID---> This place is the real deal. The sauce is AMAZING, the gnocchis... More

I took my sister here for a Birthday dinner and neither of us had been there before. We were NOT disappointed after our first but definitely not last visit. I had the chicken Marsala which was one of the best I ever had. It had so many mushrooms which I love and the sauce was sweet and not salty like... More

There will be a wait to get a table here. The service is good. Once the food arrives the experience improves and one forgets about waiting for a table. The food tastes so very good that you will forget about any problems you had before the food came. This is on Ridge Road near the Hampton Inn.

Love pasta villa...no one in Rochester can beat their chicken french or their calamari. The only downside is you have to know when to go or be prepared to wait...a very long time (so worth the wait) or you have to order out. Service does suffer on busy nights but the servers are ALWAYS so friendly and the food is... More
