1st time back in a while - went again the same week.

Food and Service were all excellent - like that family style and small portions are available.

Will definitely return in the near future.

Valentines Day dinner. The food was delicious and all the staff were attentive and friendly.
The pasta was cooked to perfection and the veal marsala was so tender.
The desserts are homemade and the hot antipasto was served with 2 types of sauces.

You will enjoy your dining experience and will be back for many more great meals.

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.

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!!!

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!

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.

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.

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 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.

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.
