We have been coming to Pasta Villa for 15 years. Never a bad meal or experience. I love the stuffed peppers when they have them. Also, the best red sauce in town! Nice little bar in the front, Gino will take good care of you!

This is a smallish place practically next to the Hampton Inn we stayed in. Walked across the parking lot and we were there. I can't speak to the "Italian food" served, as I took a salad back to the hotel to eat. It was very...More

Guido's Pasta Villa has a friendly kind of free to do what you like atmosphere. I think casual dress goes right with the atmosphere. I am not sure about the Radisson Hotel distance to Guido's Pasta Villa. Sorry.
