Villa di Roma Restaurant Review

: Here in the Italian Market, where red sauce is still called gravy, Villa di Roma is an institution. Regulars come for the fine mussels marinara, the varied pastas and topnotch veal dishes (the meat comes from the butcher across the way). Everything here is familiar. This is Southern Italian cooking at its most basic and loving, and the chatty waitresses will back that up.
