It is definitely off of the beaten path but well worth it. Food wine and service were excellent. I would say it is a must, especially for those who are traveling to the area and are looking for the hidden gem.

In the middle of the block, in the back sits this lovely restaurant. The chef and waiter are from Bologna Italy. There were five of us. We arrived at six. Good thing others started showing up about 15 minutes later. Only open for dinner. The waiter spoke Italian and some English. My wife had a good time talking Italian. The Mussels were excellent! So were the other appetizers. Naturally we had pasta with Bolognese sauce (a little salty) Ravioli. All was delicious. Beautiful evening.

Excellent food and excellent service. They had a nice wine selection and good atmosphere: a bit pricy, but a good place to go for a special occasion.

Villa Italia is just a bit off the main street but it did take us a few days of driving past the gravel road to finally notice the sign. We were also hesitant to go because we had our four children with us and this restaurant is known for being romantic. Although the owner/waiter hesitated a bit when we asked if it would be ok to bring our kids, he was very sweet and accommodating. The food was delicious with a beautiful presentation! And although our kids were very good, I must say that I would love to go back without them. :) It truly is a romantic restaurant.
