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

So we order from Pasta Villa at least once a week for the last 5+ years. We order to go and love it. Lamb chops are my personal favorite. Chicken parmigiana is amazing too. Gnocchi are always good and surprisingly enough but the large portion of salad is great (always fresh and great mix of veggies). Wait a second can't... More

This used to be our favorite Italian restaurant. However the last few visits were very disappointing. Sauce tasted as if it were from a jar. The gnocchi were heavy and the eggplant was mushy. Hopefully things have improved.

This is a traditional Italian fare that won't disappoint. The chicken parm is the best in Rochester. It is very reasonable prices and a comfortable atmosphere.

The owner was friendly and seated us right away. The waitress very knowledgeable ,a little pushy on the upsell and the food was good but I was thinking it would have been better.Odd corkage policy that you had to buy a bottle from them to then open your own bottle. There were six of us and so we wanted a... More

We had an 8pm reservation, but arrived 15-20 minutes early. We were greeted by the owner, Gino who guessed we were the 8pm reservation. He told us our table was occupied, but it should be cleared shortly. After a 10-15 minute wait, Gino returned and apologized for the delay. He told us the people were finished with their meal and...

We'd been shopping in Rochester and were talking about where to go as we were leaving Rubino's. At 4:30 on a Saturday, we didn't expect to find an almost full restaurant, but that's what we found - and with good reason. Calamari was perfect, Italian Wedding Soup and Chicken Piccata delicious. DH loved his Anthony's Pasta, too. Service was great,... More
