First,it's true some people don't like the Villa, but in my opinion, the reason is because it's old school. Most customers seem to be over the age of 40. According to the server, most everything is house made. It has the only view in Santa Rosa, and the prices are reasonable with a cheap happy hour. It can be a... More

I love dining at the Villa. The food is always delicious and the wait staff always attentive. The discovery of Happy Hour was a delight. They have the kind of wine I like and the Happy Hour menu is great - with great prices. I will continue to patronize the Villa for as long as it is around.

I've eaten at the Villa for years, usually to show off Santa Rosa to friends out of town because the location is just stunning. However, the service and food both have declined over the years, with my most recent foray there being for light dinner and drinks with friends, which proved disastrous. The chowder that I ordered was so thick... More

We live nearby and wanted to walk to eat. We knew from other reviews that anything but pizza might be questionable. We risked it and ordered prime rib and breaded sole. The meat was grey and dry, the mashed potatoes smelled like they were cooked in a pan that had cooked something else first. I order fish, and this purported... More

The Villa is where you take Gram and Gramps on their anniversary/birthday because they remember it as being one of Santa Rosa's premier restaurants reserved for special occasions. It no longer is. (In fact, if you are visiting Santa Rosa and have just a few nights to enjoy dining out and you end up here, you have missed some really... More

The Villa perched on top of one of the tallest hills in the middle of Santa Rosa commands a wonderful view from its indoor and out door dining areas. Going to this place is stepping back to the 1960's. Although dated and it's years of use showing, the building and atmosphere shows what once was an elegant restaurant during its... More

On a recent visit to Santa Rosa with my son, when we spent several nights with an old friend, I ended up going to this place for three of the five nights I spent in town. On my first visit, I was attracted by the lovely view of the nearby mountains and the trees which border the elevated plateau where... More

My very first "fancy" date was on prom night in 1992... I thought this place was very classy.. Fast forward to now a father of three taking his teenager her for lunch... Everything looked exactly the same... I lifted the table cloth and the table looked so old and beaten up, the wood was splitting... The food was ok... Nothing... More
