My wife and I stayed at the waldorf last weekend and went to Villellas for our second time,this time with friends.We ordered stuffed hot peppers which were awesome,crab cakes were perfect.We all had soups that were very tasty.We all ended up sharing pieces of each different main course because we all raved.The owner is old school asking us how everything is,then proceeded to buy us a expresso and sambuca to cap the night.The staff is friendly and eager to please and we were just that.to close great authentic food,great sauce,desserts and a cosy warm atmosphere.We will be back next visit 807 mulley out.

What this place had going for it was the food. The location and atmosphere are strange, but the food made up for it the lack of ambience. During our last visit the service was mediocre, the wine list was full of cross out, the red we ordered was stored above a fridge so it was warmer than room temp. The standard chefs I had seen in the back were MIA, the pasta wasn't homemade, the food was uninspired. There are a lot of places to eat Italian in Niagara Falls, unfortunately this has just become another one on the list of unattractive options. This place was great and I am hoping it was an "off night". Will try again before crossing it off my list.

The staff was very nice and attentive. We were disappointed with the portion sizes. We had a fish fry, lasagna and baked ziti and I guess we expected a little more for $15 each. My husband asked if the sauce was a smooth sauce and we were told yes. (He is pretty picky) The sauce was definitely chucky which turned him right off. He decided to eat just the pasta but there wasn't much of it. The fish fry was very good. That was all we were pleased with.

this little restaurant is hidden in the waldorf niagara. the food is excellant, the owner filippo villella is on site and greets you. the service is great..the dessert is to die for....the kitchen is open and your food is delivered immediately upon being cooked..the restaurant is no much to look at, but some of these small out of the way family business are the best...would go back again when in niagara falls ny.

The main courses are excellent. The staff is friendly and attentive. The restaurant abuts a hotel but is not a hotel restaurant.
