Open any time you need a Villa fix! The subs, fresh cut fries, pizza, broasted chicken, and baked sweet potatoes are my personal favorites... one of the few places you can get a carafe of wine to share. Love eating on the patio in the nice weather, wonderful service, and great place to run into friends!

I grew up in the area, but rarely went out to eat as a resident. Now that I return for visits, it's interesting to explore places I took for granted during my childhood. The Villa Italia is one of those places. They have amazing bread . . . which is used to make some extremely unique sandwiches. It's definitely an... More

Good food great service. The restaurant is a good little staple in the community. There's a reason this restaurant has lasted. Broasted chicken and broasted potato is a great choice (like fried chicken).

Since the owner passed away, they retained the same menu. However, the restaurant is a lot busier. It may be due in part to the fact that the owner made it a point to be "looking over everyone's shoulders." This may have been good but I think at times it was overpowering. There is a more relaxed atmosphere there now.

I have been eating the Deluxe Subs from the Villa for many, many years. They are THE best in Oil City.

Recently took my family to the restaurant and found the staff to be very pleasant and the food to be good… However, the owner recently passed away and was a fraternal brother of mine in the local Masonic Lodge #363 in Oil City, Pennsylvania.... Sam owned the restaurant for many many years and built on the present site new in... More

We were very disappointed. The place was not very clean, but I can handle the old country look. The service was poor. Their food was less than average and was pricey for the quality that you get. We will never go back.

Their food is pretty average. Although they make great milkshakes. Their prices are not too pocket friendly for an average restaurant. If you want an order of spaghetti, you have to pay extra for salad. Some restaurants have it standard for salads to come with the dinner.

Great subs, milkshakes and 'incredible edibles' (fried veggies)! The staff isn't overly friendly, but our food was quick.
