Weird Wednesday fact: Squid Ink Pizza! Somewhere in Japan, this weird pizza was created using squid ink instead of tomato or pizza sauce, and topped with prawns, and chopped squid. Want a taste?

Italian food… not only sinfully scrumptious but also deliciously #FILLING!

We bet that this #deliciously funny poem by the late Shel Silverstein, who obviously shared our love for #Italian food, made you hungry for the real thing. So what are you waiting for? Come visit us today! @RistoranteVillaFrancesca

Pizza Fun fact: The first documented usage of the word “Pizza” was in the Italian city of Gaeta in 997 AD.

DO NOT WAIST YOUR MONEY UNLESS YOU LIKE BEING BERADED BY MANAGER/OWNER WHEN GOING OUT TO EAT. Worst dining experience I have ever had in my life - the "manager/owner" literally argued with my party in front of the entire room of guests because they gave our table/reservation away after having had it booked for two weeks and waiting 45 minutes to be lied to that our table was never ready. The most unprofessional, rude, and obnoxious staff I have ever dealt with in my life. I worked in the industry for 5+ years serving and managing and this was by far the worst experience I have ever had. This place deserves negative stars for the way they treated myeand the rest of my guests. Appalling really that place like this gets any credit from anyone whatsoever. Worst dining experience of my life - would never even recommend using this place to go the bathroom.

Very pleasant place to eat! Family friendly and have booster seats. Straightforward a Italian food. Reasonably priced compared to restaurants in this area.

Disgusting food, the shrimp scampi and the spaghetti with pesto sauce were horrible, we expected at least decent pasta. I went to a chain restaurant the next day and had much better food. Avoid Villa Francesca like the plague! Yuck!

Amazing restaurant! The Penne A La Vodka was the best I've ever had! All at reasonable prices. Great service as well (Thanks Rebecca!). Everyone who visits or lives in Boston should know that this place exists.

No other diners were there when we arrived at 7:15. We were given stale bread and there was a fly in the oil bottle. There were no traditional pasta dishes, so the teens had trouble finding something they'd like. The food was pretty good, though.
