Villa Maria Ristorante Italiano

Villa Maria Ristorante Italiano is a beautiful and authentic restaurant serving pasta, appetizers, entrees, pizza, soup, salads, and kid’s items. 

Owners Danny and Maria have excellent experience with Italian cuisine already. The menu is classic Italian, and the daily specials are highly recommended as one can’t go wrong with whatever Maria cooks up for the day. The dishes are lovely, with homemade sauces, complex undertones, and excellent service. Pricing is fair, and items do not break the bank. 

For an authentic Italian experience, come to Villa Maria Ristorante Italiano restaurant.
