“Friendly folk, great lasagna!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 June 2013

The women who helped us choose our dinner were sincerely nice and friendly... and passionate about their food! They guaranteed we would like our dinner and they were right.
I found it a bit on the pricey side for ready made take out but I guess that's Lake Placid for ya.
I would recommend to friends and return.

“Great Italian Food- To Go!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 February 2013

Have tried regular lasagna, seafood lasagna, homemade pasta sauce and more and it has all been great! The owner/chef is very friendly and the take-out setting is convenient. They have several options in the refrigerator and the freezer so you can choose to either heat something up for dinner that night or save it in the freezer for a day when you don't feel like cooking!

“Why eat out? Villa Vespa has it all!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 November 2012 via mobile

After hiking we hit Villa Vespa to stock up on a dinner we could warm up at our leisure at our accommodation. We were amazed and pleased at the variety of foods available to take out and warm up. Our group of four included two vegetarians, one pescatarian and a meat-lover and we were able to find delicious food to please everyone. Our list included spring rolls, empanadas, a fresh garden salad with balsamic vinaigrette, garlic bread with cheese, eggplant parmigiana, chicken parmigiana, seafood lasagna and sautéed spinach with garlic and mushrooms. The heating directions were included with every dish and we found everything to be absolutely delicious! It was lovely to have such tasty food without having to go out to a restaurant. Special kudos to our "front woman" who enthusiastically explained each dish and even offered taste tests. If you are looking for a delicious alternative to restaurant dining, you can't go wrong with Villa Vespa.

“Outstanding 'to go' food and ultra friendly owner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2012

Wow! We felt like we were at a relative's house. The owner (a wonderful lady) helped us out and made sure we had everything needed for our dinner later that night. We tried the Lasagna and also the Ziti. That way we could split the two and enjoy the best of both. We were so impressed when we ate these dinners. Just superb Italian. The flavors, consistency, just everything was near perfection. We also tried the Creme Brulee for dessert and it was also superb! We rate this 'take out' food as high as possible. Thank you for the wonderful quality. Highly recommended!

“Italian Cooking Like Mama Used to Make”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 December 2011

Villa Vespa, in Lake Placid, NY, used to be a mouth-watering Italian restaurant not too many years ago. Now it's a mouth-watering Italian takeout restaurant. Everything is prepared from scratch the old-fashioned way. Like Mama used to make. Kim Vespa and crew are superb cooks and warm-hearted people. Check it out!
