The Atmosphere alone is worth at least a drink. We went on a Friday night and the mood in this place was unbelievable. My wife and I are always finding new places to eat but yet we are not really into stiff fine dining. The minute we walked in we felt comfortable being there. The music , decor and the way we were greeted made us feel so welcome. We sat at the bar and each had a Martini and had a couple appetizers.The Shrimp Scampi was to die for and the pizza was excellant! The wood oven right next to the bar acted as a warm fireplace. We sat down for dinner and it was like the whole experience started again. Rob who I think was our server took care of us and was so down to earth it made us feel very comfortable. I had the osso bucco and my wife had the Linguini pasta. Everything was so fresh! I had asked how they do it and one word answered that question."Fresh". Meat , Fish , Produce delivered everyday! We will definately go back in the very soon future..Until then 2 thumbs up!!

From Business: Come to Villa Italian Kitchen at 4200 Genesee St, Cheektowaga, NY for a delicious Italian meal. Villa Italian Kitchen was founded with one store, one family and one…
This bar restaurant is one place to experience the real Buffalo. Back in the day, Buffalo's taverns had two entrances, one for the family and one for the men. The entrances are still two, however women can belly up to the bar here now anytime if they choose and won't look out of place. One doesn't come here for the bar however. You eat in the bar with it's big open view into the kitchen. The clanging of huge pots for spaghetti and sauce can occupy a single diner or a glance at the evening news playing on the single television. This restaurant has a limited menu of Italian favorites. The sauce is good and plain. The waitresses are the perfect blend of Buffalo-gal sweetness and sass. Come hungry.
Going to keep this short and sweet...was not sure because of some iffy reviews. Hard to choose what to eat . The food and service were excellent. The wait wasn't long and prices were reasonable. Place was packed, but plenty of parking in additional lot next store. Had a great time and will be back soon.
