Easy to find and plenty of parking. The food is real New York style fare. Thin crust pizza, delicious sauce, and the best eggplant parmigiana I've had in years. Nobody makes eggplant better! It's crispy on the outside and fully cooked and succulent on the inside. What a treat for a transplanted northerner. Maggie, our waitress, was a delight. Truly... More

Villa Roma serves good Italian food! The service is also very good! The fried ravioli appetizer was very good! I also enjoyed the veal parmigiana sandwich!

Have visited this location many years ago. Decided to see how it was today. Same location and building as before without much change. High sanitation marks. Love the rating system in North Carolina as it has numbers which translstes to letter designations. Villa Roma ranks high 90's. Very good waitress, quick, pleasant and always available. Salad bar was self serve... More

This restaurant has all the tradition and history--30+ years in Gastonia. Unfortunately, the food was not consistently good. Pizza: Very good. 8 out of 10. Lasagna: Good 6 out of 10. Fettuccine Alfredo: Yuck. 3 out of 10. The sauce tasted like it came out of a can.

Very good food. The prices for lunch and the portions were so worth it. It's a little hidden gem. Not located near any other restaurants but if you ride by it you have to stop in.

This was a friendly place for lunch. We were six adults and three children aging five to one year old. We were quickly seated and service was very good throughout. The calzone was very good, the lasagna was average, the Alfredo was very good, the chicken piccata was very good, and the steak was good. This place is worth a... More

Obviously a place where the locals go. Service is spotty but friendly. The eggplant parmigiana and baked spaghetti were delicious. The bread was a loaf you would get as take and bake at the grocery but still good. Salad was your basic premade lettuce and vegetables. This is the type of place you would go regularly if you lived nearby... More

Very Good Deluxe Pizza. It is all I order from here and I get it as a take out item. Never eaten inside. Pizza is always done on time when I arrive to pick it up. I believe the do offer delivery as well.

This is not Italian food. My mom was Pure Sicilian. This ain't It. Nasty. Location is near my home, so I really wish it was better. Seems to be a local hangout for folks who dont know what Italiano is all about.
