We've been a very long term customer here, and while there are many Italian restaurants on LI, there is only one La Villini, The food is out of this world and never disappoints. The issue this time, is with the server, Bryan. We went on Valentine's Day, it was early and not too crowded yet. We got our bread and drinks. While we are looking at the menu, this rude an pushy servers leans across the table, over the drinks and bread to pull the specials menu out of my wifes hands to try and hard sell the Tomahawk steak for $99. I explained we were here for the great Italian food, to please give us some time to look over the menu. He actually seemed annoyed. My wife asked him for some lemon for her water, he made a frown, walked away and brought back two small pieces on a cocktail napkin and dropped it on the table.... not even a plate. We thought best not to use it. While the other runners and helpers were great as always... attentive, keeping the water glasses topped up, bringing fresh plates, etc... Bryan had never returned to the table to check on us. That was fine really, as his attitude and lack of concern for things like possibly dropping his hair or whatever into our food was obviously not important.
What REALLY finished me off, he dropped the check off at the table and I paid and tipped my usual 25% in spite of everything. Once he had the money in his hand, he turned to us and said "If you guys are finished, we need your table for another party coming in..... I was completely taken back. It's not like we were loitering at the table, our entire meal went from 7-740pm. I guess he just wanted another tip from unsuspecting customers. I did speak to the owner's wife, and she was mortified. While I still maintain that they are one of the best Italian restaurants I've ever been to, I hope the manager to straighten this guy out or lose him quickly, as his attitude and behavior definitely ruined what should have been a great night.
LaVillini is the best!
Music too loud. couldn't hear ourselves think. My husbands steak was fatty.
We go to laVillini at least once a week. Food is always great and service is friendly and very accommodating. For two or a party it’s always great.
High quality, scratch-made, Italian food. Service is attentive and prices are reasonable. Nice local place!
This was the second time to return to this restaurant. I was there in September after a house closing it was amazing, this time I met friends there who live west as I live east. The meal did not disappoint at all! The appetizer sample platter was to die for, tender chicken parm, flavorful eggplant, lobster ravioli Mmmmm! The dessert was spectacular! I will be returning and I live in Southampton over 1 hour away....truly a diamond in the ruff, pulling up you’d never know the fabulous meal you’ll get. Go early it gets packed!!!
Consistently delicious food, great ambiance and wonderful service.... our “place”!!
Fantastic as always!
Our waiter, Vincent was amazing. He explained the best way to order, made sure we were comfortable and was friendly and gracious. He made our experience truly memorable.
Had a lovely anniversary dinner at La Villini. Food is always delicious and service was attentive without being overly so. Have always enjoyed our dinners here - from being greeted warmly at the door to the excellent food and service - always a winner!
A great local eatery with excellent food and atmosphere.
Only our 2nd time there (in 2 months) and we will be back again. Staff, (Servers, Bus folks & Bartender) were excellent. Wife had fish and I had Veal, Wow! Do yourself a favor and go. Plenty of room for large groups or small.
Excellent food and generous portions. First Wednesday of every month is accordion night in the main dining room. Price Fixe menu great value and wonderful entertainment. A nice night out.
I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. Service was well-timed and friendly. Very Reasonable.
Very enjoyable experience. Great food and friendly, relaxed service. We’ll be going back soon.
OUR WAITER PERRY WAS WONDERFUL. FOOD DELICIOUS, MUSIC A LITTLE LOUD BUT LOWERED IT WHEN ASKED
Fantastic evening. The food was scrumptious. We introduced two Northport couples to La Vilini who will definitely return!
Food was great and Lucas our server was great and very attentive. It was an anniversary dinner and we celebrated it with two other couples. Ordered everything family style lots of food and all very good with one minor exception- pasta was a bit overdone but otherwise everything was great.
They had a private party and the table we were at was by the kitchen so there was a constant flow of people past our table. The party was very loud in the next room. Not sure how it would have been if the party was not there but the food was excellent and I would go back again.
La Villini is always our choice for family celebrations and a nice dinner out. The food is consistently delicious and the service is courteous and attentive. We have been coming here for years, and will continue to do so.
Wonderful dinner a La Villini. The staff is so friendly and made us so comfortable as if we were all old friends. A little loud but it’s a fun neighborhood Italian restaurant. Everyone knows each other.
Food is amazing and the service is always top notch! Love coming here.
We were warmly greeted to our reserved table. Server explained the menu and specials and was knowledgeable about ingredients and preparation. House wine delicious. Misto Salad perfect with a surprising sweet horseradish dressing. We had the artichoke hearts for appetizer They were fresh split and broiled dressed in a butter garlic sauce YUM I had the eggplant parmigiana which was delicious. My friend chicken marsala. I tasted; it was the best I’ve ever had. Finished with coffee and homemade tiramisu. Entrees were generous (they come small or large size). Enough to take home for a second taste the next day. We enjoyed a superior dining experience. Next time I’ll start my meal at the beautiful bar with a cocktail. Thank you well done and appreciated.
Friendly attentive service!
Love this restaurant!
Food is great. Service was excellent. Great value.
Good service,excellent food,friendly and knowledgeable servers.
Seated promptly. Excellent service. Very good food.
Great family style Italian food - we love it! The mista salad is the best ever! Fried zucchini is a great pick - as long as one doesn't think about the calories. We love the fettucini with filletto di pomodoro sauce - our favorite meal. A half order of each thing leaves two of us with some left over to take home - lots of great food - well worth the trip and the price.
This restaurant was a hidden gem for us. We have lived in the area for 15years now and somehow, this was our first visit to La Villini, after it was recommended to me by my hairdresser. He told me this was his "go to place" in the area. The restaurant is comfortable, the service very attentive, the noise level excellent (even though there was a large party with children going on, the noise was contained by a curtain room divider). The food was delicious and the portions (served family style but plated by the waiter) very generous. I can recommend the broiled chicken wings, the shrimp oreganata, the beet salad and a super delicious tiramisu.
We were a table of 10. The staff was very accommodating and helpful in ordering family style do there was enough for everyone. The food was delicious as always. Can’t wait to go back.
We were expecting a quieter, more intimate atmosphere for our family gathering. The restaurant is billed as offering family style dining. Rather, the surroundings were extremely Lou's, busy and intrusive. Food was fair. Could have done just as well at home.
We visit LaVillni at least once a week. The service, the food and the value is excellent.. made to order your way.
Always great food at this neighborhood spot. Saturday nights are just too loud. Also, you need to put your whole order in at once, no apps while you are deciding on mains.
La Villani is my go to restaurant for occasions big and small. The food is always consistently delicious and the staff is friendly and courteous. I have been going here for years!
Have dinned her twice and was excellent each time. Will come again.
At La Villini you have the choice of family style or individual ala cart dining as well as a prix fix menu. The food is excellent and service is prompt and efficient. I recommend LaVillini as an excellent choice for a casual meal with friends and family.
We found the food to be excellent.The tiramisu was freshly made in their kitchen in some kind of crockpot like cup and beats all other restaurants by far for taste.The artichoke oregano was outstanding. Loved the way they served the misto salad on a cold plate. The service was amazing ,friendly & professional everthing was well timed.The restaurant owner should be proud of the staff he hired. And yes we will return for another relaxing dinner
