Carmella and her staff do a wonderful job and the food is outstanding. My husband and I were celebrating our 50th anniversary and Carmela made it such a special evening for us. No wonder they have been in business for over 75 years. My favorite...More

Salad came with dinner and the lettuce was wilted. I guess they forgot to dry the lettuce. Worse Italian bread ever. ordered Seafood with linguine and it was decent. Wine was good. Overpriced for what they give you.

We ate dinner at Villa Tronco. The pasta primavera was delicious. The vegetables had a grilled taste to them which was great in the pasta sauce. The entree comes with a house salad and it was good. The basket of bread is the only negative...More

Being from Dallas, which is considered to be the restaurant capital of the world, my opinion of a good restaurant is not often the same as people who come from other cities. The parking for this restaurant is not properly marked and hard to find....More
