In the city filled with extraordinary options for different types of food, this restaurant definitely holds its own. I recommend the mushrooms in four cheese sauce, and the Bolognese and the puttanesca pastas. The place is nice and perfect to take the whole family, and the service is good as well.

Villa Italia has an extensive menu of traditional italian food at very reasonable prices. The service is good. The venue is an old house redecorated. You go there For the food not the ambiance.

This was our second visit to Villa Italia in as many months and as always the food was exceptional and the service excellent. The four cheese pasta is great but this time I had the scaloppini de mailable (pork). it was just as good as veal scaloppini which is hard to find .

This is our go to restaurant for an enjoyable always good meal at a reasonable price. The mushroom appetizer with cheese is great. My wife likes the pasta dishes and I love the veal dishes. Friends that I took there for fish raved about it too. A comfortable fun environment

Once again, rave reviews from people made me go there for a quick lunch, especially since I was looking forward to a carbonara. I requested one with tagliatele instead of spaghetti, and they said they only had the green variety. I said OK, then thought better of it and changed that to spaghettin while the waiter was still with us.... More

Interesting restaurant, beautifully decorated, valet parking, attentive service. I went with a Mexican friend who insisted we eat there and she was right the food was excellent between 3 of us we tasted and shared about 6 different menu items, all good. Desert was fabulous. I'll go back my next trip to Merida

I have been to this restaurant many times here in Merida, Yucatan, Mexico. Great service, great atmosphere, absolutely delicious food, and not too pricey at all. Well worth the visit. Try the salads too. Easy to find, lots of parking. One of my favorite Italian restaurants in Merida of the 20 or so that exist.

Thank Denis M
