La Villa Park Slope

September 23, 2011

I can’t say too, too much about La Villa Pizza in Park Slope. L and I went there on Wednesday to use up a Groupon and all we had was pizza, beer and a dessert. While, yes, this may seem like a lot, in the scheme of their lengthy menu it really isn’t anything at all.

I will say that this place is about two stops short of being Park Slope’s own Eatin’ Park. (I won’t even say Ruby Tuesday because at least in there the lights are tolerable.) The lights were cranked on high, the place was packed, the waitress was perky yet vacant and misplaced, and food came fast. Almost too fast for a wood burning oven….

The over eager atmosphere was a bit shocking because from the outside it really looks like a pleasant place. It was such a contrast. Impressive really. Go in there. You’ll see what I mean.

The pizza was…good. We ordered a small Focaccia della Nonna (D.O.C.) – “Grandma’s Pizza” is made with Homemade Mozzarella, Crushed San Marzano Tomatoes, Basil. We added spinach, mushrooms and peppers. Like I said, it was good. It wasn’t great. The crushed tomatoes added a nice zest and the mozzarella did indeed seem fresh. There was a bit too much olive oil but really – is that even a thing?

Will I be going back to La Villa? Probs not. In the end, this place was expensive. We ended up paying $30 before tip and we had a GROUPON. The fact that our total bill was almost $70 for 4 beers, a pizza and some ice cream is kind of a bit much. No?

(Yes, I know this is not as expensive as South Slope Pizza but at least that’s right next door..)

On the flip side, the portions were quite large – too large. So I suppose it depends on what we’re after right?

That’s all for today people. Happy Friday! I’m excited to be heading upstate with M. Looking forward to some fall colors.
