Lobster filled ravioli in a light cream sauce with minced shrimp and fresh dill
Pasta alla Puttanesca
Extra virgin olive oil, garlic, fresh tomato, diced black olives, capers, anchovies and a touch of chili over pasta
Everytime I dine here the service and food are spectacular. Already looking forward to my next visit
My favorite spot in the North End - great service, amazing food and always a lively atmosphere! Have the special pasta - you won't regret it!!
Amazing food. Deserts are homemade so good!!!!!!
Group of 6 had nice table downstairs food and service was outstanding
Have to say just OK. Have been coming here for over 30 years.
We love this restaurant the food is amazing and delicious. Service is wonderful. The best of the North End.
Filet was amazing, I love coming to Villa
A bit pricey for generic food. I got spaghetti alla vongole with white sauce and it was quite bland. My boyfriend got lamb chops and they were good! Generous with the portion sizes, but not the parmigiana😂
Everything was fine, but nothing terribly special. Food was good, service was good. A bit over priced.
My favorite place to eat at the North End. A must visit every time we come.
Just an awesome exhorting every time.
We went to for the Dine out Boston weekend lunch and had a fantastic meal. Alex our waiter was so attentive.
This was our first restaurant experience since the start of the pandemic, and it was lovely. Thankful for the safety steps taken by the staff, and look forward to returning again soon!
The service was great very attentive tables were spread out for covid
Went during Dine out Boston 2021. We all had the prix fix menu. The food and service were outstanding. We had a toddler in a high chair with us, and the server could not have been sweeter to him. Don't hesitate to order the
Fettuccine ai Carciofi or the
Pollo alla Parmigiana
We had the mini cannolis for dessert which were fun!
Great linch during Dine Out Boston. Lots of choices on menu, food excellent.
We love everything about Villa Francesca. We came in because of Dine out Boston week but we keep coming back for the food, drinks and such a great location .
Great experience again, this time to celebrate a family birthday. Food and service were outstanding as usual. We hadn’t been I to the city in a while due to Covid restrictions, etc. and were pleased with the distancing we experienced. We were in a lower level room by ourselves (6 in party). We ordered a variety of menu items from steak to seafood and all were outstanding.
Food was not worth coming back. It was greasy and the presentation was bland. For the price point, it definitely was not worth what we paid.
Get table service
Poor service, delicious appetizers so so mains
The Dine Out Boston menu offered a variety of great choices. The appetizers, main course dishes, and desserts were very flavorful and properly prepared. It was a truly enjoyable meal. I would gladly recommend this restaurant to others.
Went for lunch during Boston Dine In week again. The food was absolutely fantastic! Cannot wait to go back again!
Lunch was magnificent!
I have a dairy allergy and they were able to adjust the menu items containing dairy
I took off food star because they didn't have a non-dairy/vegan dessert option,
But the food was so great, I'll be back- even without dessert!
One of the best meals that my husband and I had in the North End.
Huge portions! Would have like to been able to take my soup to go but was told they didn’t have containers for it. Food was hot and delicious
The waiter was simply the best. he was very attentive, the restaurant was exceptionally clean as it has always been. We are from Rhode Island , but I choose to come to Boston.
Finest food going, exceptional service.
The wine list was significantly overpriced for the quality of wines listed. The food also wasn't authentic Italian as described; the menu is Italian American.
Wonderful food, atmosphere and service and will certainly return soon!
It was great. Romantic and quiet. Food was delicious
The cheese wheel!!! Presentation, entertainment, and delicious!
The food was excellent
I’ve driven by this restaurant for many years am very glad I had dinner. I am a fan. I’ll be having dinner here a lot. The waiter was easy going and the kitchen had no problem making some changes to the dish for personal preference .
Hostess was rude, server was nice and food was good. Romantic ambi
Villa Francesca’s never disappoints! Our meal was excellent
The food was excellent! I had little neck clams in a white wine garlic sauce over spaghetti. My wife had red snapper cooked in a red sauce with risotto and spinach. My son had seafood fra diavolo over linguine. We shared a freshly made cannoli, and a strawberry cheesecake for dessert that were also delicious! I highly recommend eating there when you’re in the North End.
Excellent food and service!! Next time we are visiting Boston we will be back!!
It was ok, food was not impressive. Service was good.
I was impressed with how quickly we were served with menus and asked about drinks. However, that could be because of a 90 minute COVID restriction. Our waiter was not very pleasant and seemed to be rushed. This is not to say he was mean or rude, he wasn't. He just didn't make us feel "at home" or comfortable.
After our appetizer was served I had to ask for bread. The bread was just soft sliced bread with no oil to go with it.
The meal itself was good. While most any meal in North End is expensive, this restaurant was a bit higher in price and not worth it. If the atmosphere or banter with staff or even Italian music playing I wouldn't mind paying more. But there was none of that.
The one thing they do that is 2nd to none are the desserts. The presentation of them alone is worth ordering.
Food was great and ambience adorable. Service was slow, was about 20minutes from the time we were seated to the time the server even came by the first time, atleast other staff had served water and bread while waiting on the service.
