Do you like the Olive Garden? If you answered yes, either shamefully or proudly, then you will like La Villa. It’s basically the Park Slope version - there’s a huge menu of Italian-American food, and it’s a highly casual setting that would be especially good for people over 70 and people under 7. All that said, the food is actually decent, and if you’re someone who’s happy eating chicken parm and unlimited free onion focaccia (better than breadsticks) you will probably enjoy it. Take note: most entrees could easily be split between two people, and the pizza here is surprisingly good.
