We frequent this restaurant often when going to the Time Warner Cable Arena for events. Always excellent food and service. Often the place is full and in need of more seating. Highly recommend for all Italian food lovers. Absolutely LOVE their pizza!

We visited Villa Francesca for two different birthday parties over the holidays and had a great time. The food was tremendous, and it was so easy to park and get to the restaurant. Can't wait to return to try out their specials!
