Reviewed 19 August 2013

Little Villa has been the 'go-to' restaurant for family dinners over 20 years. Very family friendly staff has never makes us feel rushed. The Italian food has never disappointed, plentiful bread (oil and cheese on the table) Great thin crust pizza.

“What a find!”
Reviewed 15 May 2013

We found this wonderful little Italian restaurant in Des Plaines for dinner this past Saturday. Based upon the full parking lot, we felt sure this was a good place to go. We were right! The food was great, a nice family atmosphere and an awesome waitstaff! Don't miss the opportunity to check out this restaurant.

“Local Favorite no Big Deal”
Reviewed 11 March 2013

Everybody has a "go to" local restaurant where they enjoy a meal. That fits Little Villa well enough. But a "destination" restaurant this is not. A family Italian restaurant, with tasty but standard menu items you can order at thousands of other restaurants across the country with similar expectations. You don't stay in business without making your customers happy. This is a friendly enough place, with above average atmosphere -- clean and comfortable -- and good, but not great, cooking. The pizza is standard fare, the entrees are typical, the salads fresh but un-inspiring. Just an average place. Not pricey.

“Great Neighborhood Italian”
Reviewed 28 January 2013

This place has been here for at least 30 years and their experience shows. Great menu, great pizza (thick and pan style). Personalized service and locally owned. Cozy bar area and family friendly dining room. Great daily specials not advertised but listed on the menu. Really worth your time to try it out!
