If you are looking for fine Italian food, welcome to Pasta Villa! It's alway crowded, the dining room is small and intimate, the bar is lively. You may wait for a table, but it will be worth every minute of your time. Try the strip steak if that's something you enjoy; it is without question the largest, most perfectly cut... More

What a great establishment to have a business lunch! The service was fast and the food was wonderful. Though not rushed at all, it was very pleasant.

Tonight I wanted takeout. Ordered calamari for app and shrimp Alfredo. Thought it was a little pricey but omg when it arrived there must have been 5lbs of pasta. Could have used some more sauce but the taste was impressive. Will definitely return.

Trish is definitely the backbone of the bar area and manages to provide outstanding service not only for the bar, but for all the servers in the dining room. I, as... More

It was a busy night and we were seated in small section that consisted of only two tables off the bar which was fine. Problem was hostess said she would be back with our menus and waitress would be over soon. 5 min later and neither showed so I went and grabbed my own menus from hostess stand. The girl... More

Hands downs, best authentic Italian cuisine in Rochester. The food is bursting with flavors, the quantity is sufficient and the price is reasonable. Way better than most of the other Italian restaurants in Rochester! Highly recommend!

Went to Pasta Villa last night with wife and another couple. Service staff was very friendly and efficient. First look at the menu prices stirred an expectation of fine authentic Italian food. My friend and I ordered stuffed ravioli. We noticed that on both our plates the ravioli looked to uniform to be home made. Each ravioli was under stuffed... More

I decided to get dinner at Guido's because it was next to my hotel, and easily accessible. The moment I walked in I felt welcome and honored as a guest. I sat at the bar to order my dinner and watched the bartender work her magic. One of the owners came by and chatted with me for a while also.... More

Some of the best Italian food around frank does such a good job with this restaurant. You wont leave feeling hungry. I never could understand how olive garden or chain Italian restaurants could survive in te same city as the pasta villa.
