Anything good to eat at the Villa Rosa in Quincy?

Some folks from work are headed there this week. Saw some mixed reviews on the archives. But most post are pretty old. Looking for reviews from folks that have been there in the past 6 months. -- Thanks!

  1. The pizza is still good there, though the rest of the food seems to have gone downhill. I'd definitely stick with the pizza...

    1. The pizza might be ok, but the rest of the food is just nasty. Canned veggies, ragu tomato sauce, that type of thing. I'd stick with the pizza if you must go there.

      1. I'd bring a sandwich from somewhere else.

        1. We live right down the street and ate there sometime over the winter. It was not good. We thought we'd give it another shot and ordered 2 pizzas to go a couple months ago. You can get better pizza delivered to your house from Domino's. My advice is to eat before you go and stick with a beer or two while everyone else dines.

          1. my irish american husband was raised on this food. i'm from an italian family and i jokingly tell my husband the food at the villa is eye-talian food for irish people. after a few years of eating there with his family i finally figured out one of the reasons why the food was so awful. if you can imagine italian food completely devoid of garlic, that is what you're going to get at the villa. there are other things terribly wrong with it.....acidic tomoto sauce. mushy pasta. microwaved rolls. i dno't know what to tell you to get. everything i've ever eaten there from the iceberg salad (slightly brown) with one slice of cucumber and one ring of red onion and one wedge of styrofoam tomato to the deep fried chicken parm to the veal parm which is really something else (and by that i mean, it's not veal!) is just dreadful. eat before you go.
